GM might partner up with Google to use Android OS on future cars | Rpmgo.com



In today’s car market, making good vehicles isn’t enough, as more and more features need to be added in order to attract people. As such, Ford and Microsoft teamed up for the Sync/MyFord infotainment system, which offers anything from great satellite navigation to support for various mobile phones.

General Motors isn’t sitting passively, and even though it has its OnStar system, it might try to partner up with one of Microsoft’s rivals, Google. According to a report coming from MotorTrend, the US carmaker might use the Android mobile operating system on future models.

According to MT, this collaboration will pave the way for a new era in infotainment systems. The Android OS currently has a pretty big marketplace filled with interesting applications, which might turn owning a GM car into a much more pleasant experience.

Still, as MT notes, this might interfere with the duties of GM’s OnStar system. We won’t know for sure when or even if the partnership will be made official, but you can be pretty sure that it will be better than the Chinese Google Android car, the Roewe 350.
