Car infotainment systems, the software that controls the on-board navigation and media controls, is normally not just bad but terrible. Google is looking to change that. Today they announced a partnership with Audi, GM, Honda, Hyundai and Nvidea to create the Open Automotive Alliance.
It’s Google’s Android, In Your Car
One of the best entertainment and driving navigation devices is the device that most people carry with them every day. Their smartphone. However, cars makers operate on a much longer lead-time than handset makers so car-based infotainment centers lag behind other consumer technology. This can make for an awkward marriage between your phone and your car. With Google’s announcement today, that should all begin to change. Google wants to leverage the power behind Android and make your music and apps available to you in the car.
