I think some that are newer than mine might support apple car play. You’ll have to look specifically for that feature mentioned though. Some say they support apple air play but not the same thing as no control or screen mirroring.

So the units aren't locked down and are hackable then. At least that's a positive. I haven't messed rooting or any other android hacking in a few years, but used to do it as a hobby. Not a real hacker per se, but more of a "ok that guy opened the door, so I'm going to see what's in there." I think it's quite humorous that most of the best parts of both Android and iOS in their most recent versions have been available through hacks for years and that a lot of the security and dependability of both systems have ome from the same people.

Yeah, there’s lots of folks modding their units to overcome some poorly written code and allow better functionality. In some cases though, some have bricked the unit so not totally foolproof or for those not well versed in making these kind of mods.
