With the annoucement of Apple CarPlay and many car companies including after market Pioneer and Alpine adding support will Dash Command become a CarPlay supported app? This would be a nice feature for DashCommand. Is CarPlay planned in the DashCommand app road map for future releases?

Looks like this would be a good thing for us to look into. Thank you for posting it.

DC support within carplay is practically essential to the development of DC.  Pioneer app radio mode and its app radio app are slow, full of bugs and mainly not safe for the road, if you ask me.
I am using app radio 3 and since i moved to iphone5, i've had issues with Pioneer's app.
I recently bought the BT-8600 (which is the European version of the NEX-4000 in the US) and i really hope that car play will improve user experience.

Pioneer released the car play update for its NEX.
Whats going on with Dash command?
Getting it to work with car play will eliminate the pioneer appradio app bugs.

Any news?

We are interested in Car Play, but have other priorities at the moment.

Then you better take a look at this:
http://www.appradioworld.com/2014/10/pioneer-appradio-mode-lives-on-but.html

App radio mode is buggy. Car play is more streamlined with iOS. You guys just cant skip the opportunity to be one of the first few apps which support Carplay.

New cars are bound to be out with car play support as well. Getting dash command to work on all the new, fancy, cars almost natively not a priority for you? Seriously - do you have a Product Manager? Smiley
How hard can it be so get your app into the list of carplay supported apps? No 3rd party interface to worry about.

What issues are you seeing with App Radio on iOS 8?

I haven't upgraded yet because of this.

We were not aware of any issues using DashCommand with iOS 8, our devices here have connected fine. Usually our vehicle manager is already set up by the time we've plugged a test device into an AppRadio, so we don't often use the keyboard on the radio itself (which sounds like its the area with a problem). If you don't plan on editing the vehicle manager while connected to the AppRadio, iOS 8 is not a problem for DashCommand.

We will take a look into this to make sure we're as compatible as possible.

Dashcommand works well with iOS 8, and app radio. I am running it on iphone 5s
most of the bugs i see are relevant to the app radio app.
Thats why it is so important for Dashcommand to support car play. It eliminates 3rd party interface to app radio. It will enable only 1 cable connection.

And progress on that one, John?

Not yet. We have some high-priority work that we're rushing to finish by the end of the year. It's good you're poking me on this though, to make sure it doesn't fall off our radar.

Apple has a submission form on their website. If we think our app would work well with CarPlay then we request access. So I sent them a submission a couple of week ago. I haven't heard back yet. Hopefully they will respond to us. I think DashCommand would be good with CarPlay.
