Any plans to add CarPlay to the 2017 Equinox?

Will the MyLink system be able to upgrade in case Chevy will add CarPlay to the 2017s? or is it a hardware thing?

Would very much love to have it on my new 2017 Equinox Premier.

Thanks,
Uri R.

No we will not be seeing CarPlay on the older generation Equinox/Terrain vehicles. We've been hoping since 2014. My 2017 Colorado has it and it really drains the phones.

No Car play in the 2 Gen Equinox or Terrain.

Different hardware exists in the newer GM models like my 2017 Colorado LT. I have it there along with Android Auto, both of which are wonky. Updates are happening though.

Me. . . I guess this new tech is *good* when it works. But every car maker seems to have trouble making it do so. Works for awhile. . or with some phones/models and then not others. Or gets an update and no longer works reliably when it was before.

Does not seem to be ready for Prime Time. . . . PLUS. . . what happens when the vehicle is 2,3 or 5 years old and no more updates for the latest phones? Then what?
Then people wonder why I still like CDs. . ..
