      My lease is up next year, I'd rather wait to get a car that supports it natively. Till then, I'll just use Ignition on my iPad and HUD Display on my iPhone [emoji16]

      It wasn't cheap, lol.
      $1399
      It has hdmi connection which mirrors my iPhone onto the front and rear displays which is very nice.

      As it should be. There's no way I would hinge a car purchase on a mobile phone OS. Same goes for TVs.
