Android Auto/ACP Discussion Thread

Of the big 3, I'd probably choose to work at GM. FCA probably has more cool projects and cars, but they also had more facepalms per minute than the other two.

PC Masterrace

I think the PS5 is going to do 4k, 120 hz with HDR. I guess it's just a combination of tech progress and massive scale. I think the PS5 and new Xbox will all be using tech that's not even out for PC yet. Just crazy how fast it moves and how cheap they can push consoles out. This has been effectively...

How many pennies can they add to the cost of a car? Well, it’s not just the switches, but what’s behind those switches. Managing the number of different wiring harnesses for a vehicle is a real cost. So every vehicle that gets heated seats would need a unique dashboard (or wherever the switch is) w...

So I've been gaming on my old 2012 iMac, running boot camp. I basically play one PC game: Overwatch. That's it. Considered building a gaming PC though. For a really nice monitor + good gaming PC, I'm looking at $2,000 for the PC and $500-$1000 for the monitor. You can get a 75" 4K HDR TV for $700 a...

My LL Bean boot has a massive 11”+ screen, but CarPlay and AA only used half of it. They finally released an update this week. Downloaded all the :dillerman: files and did the update today.

I'm surprised by the answers in this thread. I run Carplay 100% of the time I'm in a car that has it. I use Waze everywhere I go. It's like having a much more accurate, built in radar detector that integrates into the screen. All my texts are read to be, I can take phone calls, listen to podcasts, e...

Matt Farah was comparing the corvette to all sorts of stuff in regards to panel gaps. That GM 'still isn't there' kind of talk. As if they don't know how to accomplish this. I blame all of this on him having rich parents :lolol: he’s a bit disconnected from the common man, but I do listen to the po...

It's so stupid. He wants to compare panel gaps from something like a McLaren, which is a tiny volume car, using a $20k+ carbon fiber tub and hand wrapped interior panels to a base spec Corvette. The manufacturing processes for these cars almost couldn't be more different. The Corvette is going to b...

https://youtu.be/GwQPsvXUvuM I like Matt Farah, but he would really benefit from learning how this stuff works. Something like a gap between panels is not that GM doesn't know how to do it, or it's just poor quality. You pick and choose allowable tolerances based on manufacturing process and cost. ...

I put 25k+ miles on one. Let the questions rip. IIRC your complaints were that it couldn't put power down? How was it to just derp around in? Like, take off from a stop normally but when you're on the highway drop it down a few gears to do a pull? It wasn't that bad. It put the power down as well a...

I think I'd lease a schwinn-o-matic GM sedan thing with 4 real doors. Do they exist yet? Caddy CT4 I guess? I legitimately enjoyed that transmission and the Camaro in general. A 4 door Camaro with actual ergonomics would be pretty great. Anyone driven a current gen Accord? I put 25k+ miles on one. ...

Yeah, I'm down with that.

I'd also take an Ariel Atom, Morgan 3-wheeler, or something similar. I just wish these kinds of toys were cheaper.

That's what I want it for too. Just BS street driving and nice weather to work.

Basically a more extreme version of the S2000. But yeah, the numbers are hard to work out. $20k for a toy is difficult. If it was non-turbo, and $10k? I would just add it to the garage and keep the S2000.
