There was minor sidebar discussion about this at Corecon as Cabo bought a Samsung Note 8 while there.  Android apps have had broader "tech interfaces" and/or electronic "tools" than ios (I assume that still holds true.)

Anyway, 2 years ago, I bought a $14 Chinee OBD dongle and patched my phone into the car electronics. I had it decode a nuisance service alert. Pretty slick.

>There are a crapload of articles out there about Fiat's Jeep being hacked, even to the point of controlling braking.  I've had 50 years of acquaintance with Fiat and, based upon that, I'll be damned if I want Fiat in charge of developing systems for me.  They couldn't find Security with two hands.

We had a better thread predicting that automakers would sidestep security issues but I couldn't find it.
