Default Samsung bought Harman Kardon in November 2018

They paid 8 billion $. Sad that apple CarPlay probably wonít be a priority any more for Harmon. Most likely android auto will get all the progress from now on in harmon Kardon land. Has apple open sourced the technology to the likes of Kenwood as a way to compete.
Be wary of future upgrades ! I predict itís not long before sabotage via lack of compatibility.

Iím really pissed because I didnít intend on buying a google radio and am offended that they will be able to make it so after the fact. Strange world we live in.

I’m mistaken it seems the Samsung bought Harmon in 2016.( I neglected to note the date in it’s entirety)
Ironic that a company that has built a tremendous success providing the Apple CarPlay experience is actually owned by Samsung.
