Tech Yeah! Apple's newest weapon in car battle

Apple has announced a move into car technology, but its new system may not be enough to win over Android users just yet.

That's partly because the software, CarPlay—which launches in a few select vehicles later this week—will rely on Apple Maps for GPS navigation.

"I don't think a ton of people are going to switch from Android to Apple for this, at least at the start," said Pete Pachal, technology editor at Mashable, who noted that many consider Google Maps superior to Apple Maps.
