Rivals Google and Apple Fight for the Dashboard

When Google hosted a boot camp here this month for its Android operating system, there were some new faces in the room: auto manufacturers.

A similar scene is playing out just a few miles down the road at Apple, where a rival system, CarPlay, has been developed for iPhone users.

The story is too old to be commented.
