The Future of Auto Infotainment

It's often said that if you want to know the future of something then you invent it. That's certainly a golden rule at GWizNex, LLC. Imagine that while you're driving that you have the ability to listen to real time information about weather, up-to-the-minute events in the area, latest comedian acts, and trendy music from the internet at your finger tips. This new auto infotainment experience literally transforms your drive from a static/boring one to a dynamic/exciting one with heightened situational awareness at any point during the drive. Is this possible? The answer is a resounding yes.

In-Vehicle Infotainment

For many years, car entertainment has been primarily the CD player/radio and satellite radio. However with the advancements in information technology such as mobile wireless routers and tablet PCs (e.g. Apple iPad), a new world has opened up for car entertainment. The term "infotainment" has been used by the auto industry and many others to describe this new entertainment media. Infotainment is basically a neologistic portmanteau of information and entertainment. Unfortunately, the auto industry has been slow to develop technologies that provide drivers and passengers with an innovative/creative infotainment experience. This new market has clearly been underdeveloped and it seemed to me that it was time for something brand new.
