Infotainment 101

As consumers become more demanding with what their vehicles provide, the infotainment system has quickly become a must-have item in any new car. These innovative systems combine the information that you need, packaged with a myriad of entertainment options.

The data is generally presented through a central multi-media screen that relays radio information, communications, and navigation functions. Most major automobile manufacturers have now patented their own infotainment systems, giving them distinct names. Essentially mini-computers, these infotainment systems are compatible with a variety of operating systems including Android, Apple, and Linux.

A myriad of custom apps helps to seamlessly keep the driver connected at all times on the road. As new technology continues to emerge, infotainment systems have become more complex and comprehensive. The future of these systems includes gesture controls and voice commands as well as holograms, enabling the driver to keep focused on the road ahead at all times.
