Touchscreen Infotainment Systems Coming to BMWs

MotoringFile Sections: In the Press, MINI Connected, Technology Mar 11th, 2015 28 Comments

F55_ClubmanConcept (3)In the latest episode of White Roof Radio, we dedicated some time talking about the state of current infotainment systems. Needless to say it is not great, but seeing a number of established technology companies and smaller players entering the space makes us believe there’s hope for a brighter future. In the meantime, car companies continue to develop their offering and it appears that BMW might complement the interior design of its models with touchscreens sooner rather than later. continued →

normal_CT_111413_i3_0596Historically, the BMW Group and Apple have held a number of conversations regarding the integration of Apple products and services into their cars. In fact, BMW was one of the first brands to integrate the iPod in its vehicles. Most recently, these discussions have surrounded the topic of advanced connectivity, and according to Auto Motor und Sport, the two giants have partnered to develop a deeply integrated OS that would make its way into the i3. This new system “would allow not only iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, laptop and Mac computers to communicate and exchange data, but it also could be integrated with the car’s fuel consumption and movement data.” continued →

A Metaphor For The Modern Motor Industry

MotoringFile Sections: In the Press Mar 1st, 2015 2 Comments

P90155190-2015-Paceman-R61Chris Harris on why every car brand is obsessed with building every kind of car:

Every CFO on the planet will now laugh at my naiveté, but would it really be impossible for a company like BMW to make 500,000 cars a year, cars it wanted to produce and which squared with the brand image it has carefully cultivated for decades, and still make good money? I can’t see why it would be impossible.

Interesting opinion but we already know the answer; automakers just have to.

MotoringFile Sections: In the Press, Technology Feb 13th, 2015 2 Comments

14.03.03-CarPlay-2If you’ve never heard of Apple, it’s a small technology company that has changed the world, over and over again since 1976. It also recently became the first U.S. company to manage a $700 billion market cap and is now possibly making headways into the automotive space. To be exact, Apple already has a presence in the automotive space with CarPlay, but this new hire along with reports indicating that Apple’s design team has met with a number of key automotive executives and creators in recent months, adds more fuel to the potential fire. continued →
