On one side of tech arena are the company like google who try to unify and contribute more and more to various aspects of tech world and on the other side are the companies like Apple and Samsung who only know how to commercialize everything..Following Google, Apple will announce an iCAR, get a patent for it, meanwhile sammy will come with something similar and they will keep battling in court....

I think it would better to have a system to integrate the users phone, regardless of which os its using onto an interactive screen. On connection, via Bluetooth, nfc or cable, it launches an app to give special features to be used in the vehicle, all custom to whatever the platform can handle or would like to show off.

That way, if the car you want or have has that system but your phone is the opposite platform, you don't have to make any changes

Best choice, Audi. Android is the best mobile OS. And Google Maps has the most updated & complete database.
