I'm looking to buy a new car at the moment but I still haven't found a single model that has CarPlay built in. When is this thing going to hit the mainstream?

I have updated my iphone 6 to ios 8.3, and now when I connect to my Pioneer SPH-DA120, the Maps icon is gone from Carplay!
Did this happen to anyone else?
