Hard to know what to think about all this stuff on bikes these days.
Personally I don't like it. If I want to listen to music I do so via Bluetooth from my cell phone to my head set. All I want to see is bike speed, fuel use and GPS information. I have my own GPS for that. Bikes already have good speed and fuel use information on them.
All these gadgets they are adding to the bike just makes it more and more expensive to purchase a new bike.

I do not buy a bike because it has such equipment, but I've used CarPlay during this last year, and yes it can be useful .  ;)

The cost of a small tablet for manufacturer like Honda must be less than make their own gauges. And you don't have to use the extras if you don't want. I find it interesting to have navigation integrated to the bike.

I don't really care either about android auto on bikes I would buy, simply because Gmaps is really not
that great for complicated highway navigation, my trip in Dolomites last september, really showed it's
limits, I personally only use OsmAnd now it's so much better and customizable, but the android auto
doesn't include other apps, so I stick with my rugged phone !

This app even does the hiking gps much better, so it became my go to anything GPS.

I have heard that Apple is bringing out a 4 wheel EV.

Perhaps after that they will make a 2 wheel version and you can then have IOS  ;D

Honestly seeing what Apple put inside their laptop, for the price you pay them, I would never buy a car from
such manufacturer... better get a BMuu  :P
