Henrik shared today that he will share the finished UI for the Fisker Ocean display in October. Do you think it will support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or SiriusXM?

Based on Fisker words, no Apple Car Play or Android Auto, but they will put a custom and proprietary UI.
Will the Fisker team be able to deliver the final UI before production? I have feelings that it will be as VW ID3, with some unfinished features.

Well it's exactly my biggest concern about the Ocean.

I use Android Auto every day, but it's not perfect because it's missing many things. First from all the possibility to play audio messages from Whatsapp.
So I hope Fisker will come with a better experience and UI that will outperform AA and ACP.

For a company that touts "asset light" as their core strategy, I'm a bit concerned about them reinventing the wheel instead of just paying the licensing fee for ACP/AA. October is reeeeeally close to SOP and doesn't leave much time for revisions.

I can't even imagine the massive lift it must be to start a car company, even with great partners like Magna...but between the delays on UI, journalist drives/previews, and building the experience centers, I'm trying to temper my enthusiasm for November production at scale.

Even if Fisker were to use ACP/AA, they would still need to design a UI. ACP/AA only handles what is on your phone, Fisker would still need a UI for all the car functions. Plus, it's not like whatever version they have in October is the final version, as long as the hardware is finalized, they can continue to update and modify the UI.

I have a Tesla that uses its own infotainment and an ID.4 that uses ACP/AA. I much prefer the infotainment of the Tesla over the ID.4. Everything on the Tesla works semesly together, the ID.4 is disjointed. ACP works fine but the car function are limited while using ACP requiring exiting ACP to view many of the functions. I need different apps on ACP for navigation vs finding charging locations and the system doesn't handle real time charging information well.

Carplay is amazing for rental cars; I rent the car, plug in and all my phone info is there. For my personal car, I much prefer a better integrated system.
