I know that getting Apple Carplay is probably a hopeless wish (and there are many here who somehow think it would be a Bad Thing, though I can't for the life of me see why). But there's one feature that somehow just has to get in there, even if it requires me to get out soldering iron and C-code.
Audiobooks are an absolute requirement for longer trips, and for me at least, that means Audible. That's partly because their selection is hard to beat. Partly because my "library" is up to several hundred titles. But controlling Audible by having to reach for the phone whenever I need to back up a couple of minutes, jump to a different chapter, or select a new title is, at minimum, a PITA. So what I'm looking for is some better way to deal with audiobooks. Podcasts, too, while we're at it. Though to be honest, every single podcast application pretty much sucks in one way or another.
Am I missing a good way to handle this that I haven't yet made out? Is there some feature of the deluxe system that my lowly SR+ isn't privy to that makes this possible? Or is this something that will have to wait for the when / if of an app store?
