rrot hit the brakes on a plan to sell its Android Auto Caray-equipped infotainment systems directly to the public.

The company updated its blog post Tuesday regarding the RNB6 it showed off at CES. It now says that instead of direct sales you’ll be able to get the system from select manufacturers who put it in their cars.

“As of today there is no plan to sell RNB6 in aftermarket channels as RNB6 embedded technologies require deep integration with car series manufacturers,” the post said. 

rrot didn’t specify which manufactures would include its system.

y this matters: This removes one option if you’re thinking of buying an aftermarket Android Auto or Caray system for yourself. However, for new car buyers the choices look bright with most major auto manufacturers announcing plans to support Apple ’s platforms in their vehicles. Recently we learned that most Volkswagen 2016 models will have Android Auto, Carplay, Mirrornk.
