Car manufacturers should get inspiration from the Asus PadFone for future in-car multimedia functionality. If you own a smart phone you could order to the dumb console. Once the phone is (automatically) paired with the car the the functions would those available on the phone.

If vehicle manufacturers have concerns about security an app would control what functions are "passed on" to the vehicle console.


The vehicle manufacturer would make available at an optional extra cost a device that would provide certain these function. This would be taken up by those people who do not have a smart phone.


The great thing about this, esp if it becomes a standard is that if, like many, one drives multiple vehicles, ones console,features and content would automatically travel with the owner irrespective of the vehicle being driven. Think about listening to an audio book or listening to an album.

In an ideal world, phones would automatically be charged when fitted in the cradle?

What do you think?

Technically less than or similar to the cost of the media console such as SMEG.

The phone would need the processing power since it is the phone that will provide the raw processing power. For example when you call using the console it is the phone that does the main work. Expand from there.

Today USB plugs and Bluetooth are standard therefore you do not need anything new on this front. What could be an interesting adjustment would be an optional wireless charging unit. On eBay you find one for Stg 6. The phone charges when placed on the unit.

How's that.

I would like to add that it is possible to purchase a special cover for certain smartphones to give them wireless charging capabilities.
