Car buyers used to consider the different car parts in the vehicles as additional points of consideration when making a purchase. Now they also have to contend with the infotainment system. Integration with smartphones will only get more and more important because mobile devices increasingly control much of our lives. Thomas - http://www.carid.com

It is also nice to see that aftermarket car infotainment equipment makers have embraced smartphone-vehicle integration, so you don't need to wait until your next new car purchase to get some of these features. It's a win-win for everybody...except perhaps the auto-makers, who would rather see you buy a new car. My wife's not-so-old car had just a factory AM/FM/CD player, but a recent purchase unleashed a wealth of new in-car functionality from her iPod and her Droid X. Thanks to Pioneer, I may be able to put off buying her a new car for a few more years :)

I think that the sophistication of smartphones enables the simple use of only bluetooth and a speaker/microphone installed in the vehicle. The phone performs any entertainment, navigation, and of course, communication function that is needed..

This is a very comprehensive article on various issues related to car infotainment systems. As the Automotive product life cycles are much longer compared to Electronic product life cycles , it is utmost essential for the car-makers to design their in-car infotainment systems to be flexible enough to accommodate newer technologies. Having a generic and standards based HMI has become necessary for this. On the other side the Smart phone manufacturers need to develop embedded version of their models which would work with the car HMI systems to give the latest features to the car owners with minimum expenses. For every new generation of smart phone only this embedded unit may have to changed.
