Have to say, I really dislike Google and Amazon. It is everywhere and would rather deal with a few bugs then have it invade my car.Good points. Took a look at Ars Technica and they've got an article about VW (back in 2019) focusing a separate group for car software. Expectations are high for 2025. In the meantime.... I find Ford's, Volvo's and Polestar's decisions to use Google's Android Auto system might offer a better route for VW as well:
Ford is switching to Android OS for infotainment in 2023
This stuff is probably a lot harder than VW thought. Clearly.
