“Garmin’s scalable infotainment platform offers a level of performance and design that consumers expect from consumer electronics but have never seen in OEM infotainment,” said Kip Dondlinger, #garmin automotive OEM manager of product and user experience. “The new platform provides adaptable hardware and software for infotainment head units that suit specific OEM needs at the mid- and high-end levels of the market.”

Driving in bad weather can be a common concern for consumers. To help bring peace of mind, #garmin utilizes predictive routing algorithms that work with AccuWeather Go™ powered by MinuteCast®technology to display the weather conditions that can be expected along any given route. Thanks to this joint effort between #garmin and AccuWeather, the scalable infotainment platform offers the first navigation system to provide comprehensive minute-by-minute weather forecasts with Superior Accuracy™ to pinpoint exact routes.

The #garmin scalable infotainment platform takes #alexa integration in the vehicle to a new level. #alexa works directly with the on-board navigation and media player software established by #garmin – which means no smartphones or apps required. Consumers can easily select their destination with the #alexa hands-free voice service and then have it automatically synced to turn-by-turn navigation from #garmin. What’s more, consumers can ask #alexa questions and receive both audio and on-screen responses; play music through the head unit’s media player; control home automation while traveling on the road; and access hundreds of other #alexa skills from the vehicle’s head unit.

In addition, #garmin also uses the infotainment platform for Wireless Rear Seat Navigation and Entertainment. Tablets or smartphones – Apple or Android – will have access to the head unit’s mapping and full navigation functionality streaming over Wi-Fi® to the rear seat. Rear seat passengers will be able to see the vehicle’s route, search points of interest, and even send destinations to the head unit. Users can also stream media content from the infotainment system to their device via Wi-Fi, making the vehicle an entertainment hub that mimics the experience seen on commercial airliners.
