Today is the first day of the last month of summer and with two months of the season gone, Pioneer's CarPlay firmware update for its NEX receivers is no where in sight.
The circus of anticipation began with the big announcement that Pioneer would be one of two aftermarket companies (Alpine Electronics the other) to offer CarPlay. They held press events showing off Apple's latest technology on their NEX receivers. From the demos, it looked like CarPlay was ready for primetime. So much so that Pioneer themselves promised an 'early summer' release.
Early summer came and went. And so has 'mid-summer.' As we enter 'late summer' it looks inevitable that the updates will arrive anytime within the next 30 days or so. But don't be so sure.
