    Today Apple made CarPlay official. Automobile makers who support the technology will essentially be implementing a way for drivers to interact with their iPhone through the car's infotainment system, which includes the car's touch screen, microphone, buttons, etc.
    It's important to point out that the cars are not running iOS. Apple would probably never license iOS to anyone, so we're really just talking about something the equivalent of a control protocol and toolkit for rendering iOS app data on an external (car) display.
    Why is this relevant to BlackBerry? Because it strikes me as obvious that no car manufacturer is going to ever agree to an exclusive deal where they can only support CarPlay, or Android Projected Mode, or whatever other automotive interaction platform exists.

    You mean like this:
    Uconnect® Access | The next generation of connectivity has arrived
    My 2012 Ram truck has voice texting.......superior Bluetooth for music...Garmin GPS
    And this is a step down from what the uconnect Access does right now with your Blackberry BB10 as far as I can tell caus your BB10 is wireless.....the uconnect has Garmin Voice controlled maps built it...

    It looks like it doesn't "run" on QNX. CarPlay simply streams an iOS app from an iPhone to the car screen, so -- although it could use QNX for the streaming -- it doesn't require QNX.
