Android in cars

Wize

Going by the price some charge to update their built in Sat-Nav (Vauxhaull charge over £100 for singe update that comes out once per year) I am not surprised they are taking their time to move to a platform that allows other people's software on their systems.

I hope that when they do allow interconnection they have some sort of separation between the car controls and the satnav/entertainment system. If the systems were joined it wouldn't be too tricky to make a malicious app that unlocks your car for thieves or engages your immobiliser when you do above 65 on a motorway.
