CarPlay Test Drive

I rented a car this week and got a new Chevy Malibu with Apple CarPlay support. I always travel with a kit of connectors and charges so that I can plug into most rental cars unless they have a stupid proprietary connector (Nissan, Kia). I was pleasantly surprised that when I plugged in the Lightning cable, the screen immediately changed to show me apps and options on my Phone. The interface was easy to use. It gave me voice control and access to music, podcasts, audiobooks, and directions. After years of frustration with my personal car, now I have to decide if it is worth replacing my crappy Kia navigation system or just wait until I buy a new car.
