Apple Siri in car creating quite a buzz!

Apple’s new Eyes Free Siri integration, which will be a part of the iOS 6 software update, has generated quite a buzz since its announcement last week. Part of this is due to the limited amount of information that Apple and its partner manufacturers have provided. Basically, the new feature will allow users to access the iPhone’s personal assistant, Siri, via a voice-command button, and pass your voice from the car’s built-in microphone to the phone. Although Apple mentioned a list of nine automakers it’s working with to implement Eyes Free, few have had much to say about the announcement past generic enthusiasm. Fewer still have been forthcoming with details about how Eyes Free will be utilized or when compatible vehicles will be available. We spoke with engineers from Chevrolet and Mercedes-Benz to find out how Eyes Free will work in their vehicles.

Android has come out with it's own version of SIRI for the car.

Say hello to Robin–the Android version of Siri– designed with driver’s in mind, so they can keep their eyes on the road.
The new app takes voice commands in natural, conversational speech so you can ask it questions about local search and traffic, parking, navigation, gas prices, weather, and more. It also gives you Yelp reviews.
