Of course, that is as it stands today. Automakers and aftermarket equipment manufacturers are constantly evolving compatibility based on audience demand. The iPhone got an early lead because of market share, but Android has caught up quickly.
Android's primary hurdle is the lack of unified hardware standards, making it more difficult for each automaker to test for compatibility. But Apple also has a history of changing its hardware without regard to other companies. A move such as changing the iPhone's 30-pin connector would instantly lose much of its current compatibility.
And, of course, an Android phone might fit your own car better. For example, a car with a Bluetooth audio connection, but no navigation system or iPod integration, is perfect for an Android phone.
