Yes, I too have wondered where the "all-singing all-dancing" Android in-car communication and entertainment system is ...You can safely "close" any android system to prevent root access. Samsung does this on their tablets. You could also provide key-infotainment system pairing to avoid hacking, or everything . Then again, anything is hackable, it depends on the purpose...
I agree.honestly, i don't get it. howcome the big ICE/infotainment companies didn't jump on the android boat en masse? am I the only one to see it as the perfect solution for next gen entertainment devices?
Get a china ice, get rid of XP and install Android x86!I agree.
An android based double DIN ICE unit with 3G, GPS and OBDII, USB and Bluetooth interfaces would be great.
It must be the next thing?
Edit: I have seen a windows based unit like this somewhere, basically a double din car PC.
Edit 2: HERE: Double DIN 7" Touchscreen Car GPS PC Computer w/ WIFI GPS, Bluetooth, Mp4 - CAR-PC-9000
Nice... would take some getting used too.Regarding Android: bear in mind automotive industry is a slow one at adopting new features. Just remember the MP3 support, my Kenwood aftermarket stereo was able to play MP3s quite a few years before manufacturers started installing units with MP3 support built-in.
Since we are discussing about cool features, how about this one
