• Supports Multiple Resolutions
• Supports touchscreens (presumably single-touch?), hardware buttons, wheels and touchpads
• Does not support multitasking – car display will always show same current on-screen app as iPhone (which can be locked/asleep)
• Whitelisted to specific Apple apps – no public API for developers [yet?]
• Has no keyboard UI – voice recognition as input
• UI clearly subject to change
• Missing functionality in video is due to iOS Simulator not containing all the stock iOS apps
