Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Read recently about Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo being the first to implement Apple's new technology that allows tighter integration (Siri, maps, etc.) with iPhones running iOS 7.1. Has anyone heard talk of retrofitting? Is it merely a matter of software? Possible?

Thanks for any help/rumors.

Get on the list for a 2016 XC90 and you get Apple CarPlay...

"...According to the video, the new system will be available "in the coming generation Volvo cars," which likely means the upcoming, next-generation Volvo XC90.

Apple states that the system works on certain IPhone versions.

This from macrumors.com:

Volvo does not appear to have ruled out older model support for CarPlay entirely, but acknowledges that it would be difficult for the company to add that support.
"We have not announced any plans for an aftermarket solution for Apple CarPlay. While I cannot reveal any potential future products, I can say that there are major roadblocks for this, both from a technical as well as from a usability point-of-view."

Two issues here:

The first is that all Volvo news releases are available in our Current News section and any new information about this or any other Volvo related subject can be found there within hours of it being released.

Secondly, don't jump on this horse too soon. iOS7 has just been found to have very serious security flaws that allow the systems to be compromised. With current and future vehicle computer network systems so tightly integrated, it would be disastrous if an ap were developed to hack into vehicle systems. Let your imagination run wild for possibilities as to what could be done nefariously. The hope would be that vehicle mfgrs will thoroughly vet their integrated systems to prevent this from happening, but you can only do so much.
