Move Aside Sync 3, UConnect & BMW iDrive, Google Ready To Take Over

The Android Auto car infotainment system was just the beginning for Google as they showed off the new Android 7.0 Nougat powered Android in-car infotainment system at CES this year.

Working with Panasonic and Qualcomm, Google showed off the new standalone in-vehicle infotainment system that automakers can purchase and just fit onto their vehicles. The whole device will come with its own hardware, LTE modem as well as the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.

They added that the manufacturer can customize the system to suit their needs and style just like how smartphone manufacturers play around with the Android OS right now.

Panasonic also added that the system will be able to support multiple screens. This is a huge step forward for in-car infotainment system. Users have been begging for a more advanced system and it feel like this might be the answer.

What do you think of Google’s new project?
