What Does That Button Do? Vol 1

 
When I sit with customers and talk them through the different technology that comes with their vehicle, often times customers are confused about what a specific button does.

When Ford released their Sync 3 system on their 2016 vehicles they assured their customers they would eventually be getting an update to make the infotainment systems compatible with these cutting edge "phone projection" systems. Well, at long last that time has come.

With this new update you…

Who's Calling? Getting Your Phone's Contacts to Your Vehicle

 
I know I've already written a lot about your phone's relationship to your vehicle, but seeing that Americans spend 10 hours a day looking at screens, mostly our phones, it seems like a topic worth revisiting often. Vehicles now are just as much cell phone accessories as they are transportation. Our phones can power our music, navigation, text messages, and of course our calls. With every new model year our phones are taking…

Your iPhone and Your Vehicle: A (Complicated) Love Story

 
Let’s think about your Apple iPhone and your vehicle as a love story.  (I keep this metaphor going throughout the post, but there’s some real content here, I promise.) They meet and of course have to be introduced, so you pair them up. It might not always be love and first sight, and sometimes that first pairing connection doesn’t hold; and you have to pair the iPhone a second, and maybe even…

The Future of In-Vehicle Navigation: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

 
I have a prediction, one that I don’t think is that much of a leap. My prediction is this: Full navigation systems that come built into cars by the manufacturers will soon either be very rare or a thing of the past completely. The reasons for this are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two pieces of technology that allow you to “project” specific apps from your smartphone onto your vehicle’s infotainment screen. The…
