Android on your dashboard: Google reportedly partners with Audi

4 Comments

Google(s goog) and Audi are gearing up to reveal a partnership at the Consumer Electronics Show next week, according to the Wall Street Journal. The tie-in would see the creation of infotainment systems, based on Android, that rival Apple(s aapl)’s upcoming iOS in the Car feature. This fits well with an EE Times report earlier in December that said Google would launch an industry consortium around such technology at CES, using Miracast to wirelessly screencast Android apps from the phone to the in-car screen.

Please no, Audi. Love the cars but won’t consider if unfettered access granted to google and it’s ad strategies.

No consortium. tinyurl.com/m5hzrha – Rumors of #Google Consortium Announcement @ CES 2014 Greatly Exaggerated – @rogermud @SA_Update Android in Audi? Sure, why not? But Hyundai-Kia already broke the seal on that strategy.
