The car as connected device

Thursday 23 April 2015 | 11:58 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
Multimedia systems are growing ever more advanced, we found on a visit to the AutoRAI show underway in Amsterdam. 'My car' apps are increasingly common, and a number of brands are adding data connections to offer drivers extra services such as location information and advice about maintenance. Mainstream cars with Apple's CarPlay should hit the market this autumn.
