Apple Car Play Demo In The 2015 Hyundai Sonata 

While we are on our first drive of the all new 2015 Hyundai Sonata, that review to follow shortly, we had a demonstration of Apple's Car Play system in the 2015 Sonata by Hyundai Product Manager Miles Johnson.   

This is a pre-production unit and you will see a few errors that pop up, but this is 90-95% done.  Look for it sometime late in 2014 or early in 2015 as an option in the Sonata.  As a side note the screen in this 2015 Sonata is 8 inches

RoundAboutShow #31 The "Paying Your Dues" Episode

 

We’ve all done it, or rather, had to do it – and some of us more than others.  We may have started our careers scouring burnt pudding off of nursing home kitchen equipment; we may have even been forced to serve time in a half-way house for a little run-in with Johnny Law, either way we’ve all had to pay our dues in one capacity or another.  This week on RoundAbout we invite you to pay up or shut up with a lineup of stories ranging from absurd to astounding.  An English woman flips her driver’s training car on her second time out on the road motorway.  One unfortunate man gets socked with a $200 fine for being the victim of a rear-end collision.  And a group of youngsters has to serve some time for an innocent car-to-car paintball fight that turns tragic, sort of.  We also go all Battlestar Galactica in our Blind Spot story of the week, plus we chat about what we’ve been driving In The Garage

With RoAb-regular Jeffrey Ross out of action (he’s getting married, finally) we invited muscle-car fanatic and blogger Dave Braddock to take his place.  Also making the rounds is the auto mainstremist himself, Eric Trytko, as well as Miss Motor Mouth, played by Michelle Naranjo.  Autoblog writer Zach Bowman, Producer Ben Sanders and host, Craig Cole are also on hand.

RoundAboutShow #30 The "Game Changer" Episode

The group is back for this magical episode, now available at an unbelievable price: free. Isn't that great? Isn't that wonderful? In honor of the amazing iPad we bring you the 'Game Changer' episode. An aftermarket installer is the first to embed an iPad into the dash of a Toyota Tacoma despite the device's lack of 3G or GPS. Rooster Teeth sees if a real-life truck can really be driven effectively in third-person view as it would be in a video game. A fully-functional Bugatti Veyron made out of LEGOs not only drives but can retract its hard top and shift gears. All that and more, plus our Blind Spot this week asks what's more dangerous: a woman driver, an old one or perhaps both, we play another riveting round of Meet Your Roadmates, and we take calls from the RoAb Hotline!
