Re: Simple Solution

I would imagine the single network is down to costs and space - wiring looms have to run somewhere so the more wires the bigger they get. Again, more wires, more costs...

I know that these things should not matter but we all know how big companies work - £1 per car can add up to millions so lets not do it...

Personally, if i was building a car with a web browser in, it would be based on a concept similar to "3G hotspot" with only power to it and then "tablets" around the car - again with only a power cable to it - everything else these need can be done on WiFi / Bluetooth / etc - separate from the cars network.
