At Wednesday’s I/O conference, Google unveiled Android Auto, its answer to Apple’s CarPlay system. In compatible vehicles—the first of which are due by the end of 2014—users will be able to use their Android phone’s interface through the car’s dashboard screen to navigate with Google Maps, play Spotify, send texts, and more.

There are sneaky elements to Google’s plan for Android Auto, but don’t worry about that just yet. For now, all you really need to know is which carmakers support which platform.

As it stands now, drivers who really want a Fiat 500 or Audi A3 should make sure they’ve got an Android. Ferrari, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz customers should go with Apple, though we assume they can afford a few smartphones.

These guys are Android Auto exclusive so far:

Abarth,Acura,Alfa-Romeo,Audi,Bentley,Chrysler,Dodge,Fiat,Infiniti,Jeep,

Maserati,Mazda,RAM,Renault,Seat,Skoda,Volkswagen
