How To Pick An In-Vehicle Infotainment System
Since the first Model T hit the road, drivers have been talking (though not always G-rated) to their cars. Now the cars are beginning to talk back. Popularly known as infotainment systems, the new hardware combines digital assistant style information and audio entertainment options with a voice-based user interface. This connects the driver to the wireless world with less distraction than traditional switches and knobs.
The more well-known infotainment systems include Ford’s MyFordTouch, Chevrolet’s MyLink, Cadillac’s CUE system, and Chrysler’s Uconnect. Detroit Free Press Auto Critic Mark Phelan interviews the experts behind these systems and offers tips for choosing the right infotainment system.
