  1. Here I was just thinking recently that what our industry needed was more cheap CarPlay and Android Auto units. And now look!!! The power of the mind is real.

    Spot on Nicole!!

  2. There is a difference between “inexpensive” and “cheap”. It is sad that most consumers don’t realize this and just want “cheap”. There is something to be said for the saying, “You get what you pay for.”
