    CES 2019: Honda introduces Honda Dream Drive Infotainment System

      The next generation infotainment system integrates driver and passenger systems into one.

    At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas NV, Honda is demonstrating a prototype of their new Honda Dream Drive infotainment system. The new system integrates both driver and passenger infotainment.

    For the driver, Honda Dream Drive offers an expansion of Honda's existing in-vehicle payment system.  It allows drivers to pay for fuel, movie tickets, food pickup or delivery, and parking. Additionally, the system can make restaurant reservations and share the vehicle location with family and friends. Originally exclusively through Visa, the payment system now include Mastercard and Paypal. 

    For passengers, Honda Dream Drive offers games, watch movies, listen to music, use travel apps, and explore points of interest along the route, all from the passengers' mobile device. 

    As this is a demonstration of a prototype, there is no official release date announced for Honda Dream Drive.

    I can so see this as being the future main distraction device in Honda Autonomous auto's. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Yeah, there is nothing to prevent the driver from hooking their phone up to the system and playing movies in the front seat while driving.

    Yet- you still cannot legally hold a phone to your ear and talk while driving. Interesting.

    Well that'd be a silly way to watch a movie on your phone.

    Recently I've been talking to the TV Show Designated survivor because the writing has gigantic holes and laziness in it... but I'm 75% of the way through the show so I want to see what happens.

      Infiniti will be releasing the next generation of their infotainment system, InTouch, for the 2020 model year.  Most of their lineup, except the QX60, get the updated system.  The biggest news is that the new system will now support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard.  The system can get over the air updates via their home's wifi or systems with navigation can have a data plan to do the updates. The navigation system can also receive real-time traffic data for re-routing and turn-by-turn directions. 
      Infiniti has upgraded the interface to be easier to use and has added more processing power behind the system. They've also upgraded the bluetooth module for easier pairing and a better microphone for improved voice quality.

      Starting in 2020, Ford will be launching Sync 4 in most updated and redesigned vehicles. One of the key features of the new infotainment operating system is the ability to get updates over the air via a cellular network.  The over-the-air update ability makes updating the system as easy as a cell phone.  In Sync 3, the system was able to be updated via a wifi network or USB drive, and that is how Ford rolled out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto when they were finally made available for Sync 3.
      Ford says this change could eliminate some trips to the dealership if the computer needs to be reflashed to updated as part of a recall.  The system has the ability to update software in the background and keep the current software running until the new update is ready for activation, making many of the updates completely invisible to the end user.  Customers can schedule updates for a specific time, such as the middle of the night, to further make the process invisible.
      Sync 4 is designed to run on 8-inch screens standard, but 12-inch and 15.5-inch screens are available too.  Voice recognition in Sync 4 is activated by saying "Ok Ford".
      Ford believes performing some recall work via the OTA updates will improve customer satisfaction and increase business.
      Ford has not released which models will get Sync 4 first.

    • Prius Prime....  I think more like transformers... Optimus Prime.   Kia missed out on a branding strategy there. 
    • OMG I love it! Looks like they're sticking with the signature two toned Maybach paint scheme. Front end just looks bubble gummed together with the upper waterfall grille and silver mesh inserts below just doesn't flow...mesh? Anyway. Why does MB always build in 3 or 4 HVAC vents in the center stack? These ones are Audi like rectangular not round like usual though. Just seems like an overkill of vents and it's the centerpoint of the dash that you see the most. It's like they don't know what else to do with the area so they throw another vent or two in.

    • Los Angeles - Chevrolet thinks that you don't want a Cruze anymore and instead you'll buy an SUV.  Enter Chevy's answer for that, the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer starts under $20,000 and for those taking notes, that's less than the current Chevrolet Trax even though the Trailblazer is the larger vehicle, fitting between the Trax and Equinox in size. Themed after the larger Blazer, the Trailblazer looks wider in person than its specs suggest.  Powertrains match the Buick Encore GX on which this shares a platform.  Powered by either a 1.2L turbo or 1.3L turbo 3-cylinder engine, the Trailblazer will deliver up to 155 horsepower. Both engines are mated with a standard Continuously Variable Transmission with selectable stop/start capability. A nine-speed automatic transmission is also available on Trailblazers equipped with the 1.3L engine and all-wheel drive. The AWD is selectable so that drivers can choose between traction or fuel economy as conditions dictate.  The Trailblazer features 40/60 split folding second row seats, which enables the vehicle to accommodate objects up to 8.5 feet long. Overall storage capacity is rated up to 54.4cubic feet10 with the second row folded. Trailblazer is equipped with a comprehensive list of safety technology: Forward Collision Alert Automatic Emergency Braking Front Pedestrian Braking IntelliBeam Headlamps (Auto High Beam Assist) Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning Rear Vision Camera Teen Driver Rear Seat Reminder3 OnStar4 Additional optional active safety and driver assistance features include: Adaptive Cruise Control - Camera Rear Park Assist Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert Rear Cross Traffic Alert HD Rear Vision Camera Trailblazer ACTIV is equipped with unique tires and shock tuning. The ACTIV dampers are tuned to enhance vehicle performance and ride comfort when traveling on gravel roads.  The Hankook Sport Terrain 17-inch tires feature an aggressive shoulder design and an all-season tread pattern. The front fascia on Trailblazer ACTIV has been revised with the lower section designed for improved ground clearance. Additional exterior differentiation includes two-tone roof, standard roof rails and trapezoid-shaped exhaust tips. Trailblazer joins the Trax and Equinox in showrooms in Spring of 2020.   View full article
