Audi To Announce Android Based Car Entertainment System [CES 2014]

The first piece of rumor from CES 2014 has made its way out. According to a report on the Wall Street Journal, German car manufacturer, Audi AG, is planning to announce its next generation car entertainment system which will be based on Google's Android.

Current Audi car models come equipped with Audi Connect which uses Google Earth imagery for satellite navigation.

The report also mentions involvement of chip maker Nvidia Corporation to establish Android in cars. The move will basically bring smartphone apps to the car's dashboard, something that seems like being the wave of the future.

Google is stepping up its competition against Apple in the car entertainment field. Apple's "iOS in the Car" is slowly being implemented by car companies like BMW, General Motors and Honda. Such healthy competition only means one thing, the end-user wins!

CES 2014 will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada next month. Car entertainment system upgrades are believed to be one of the main features at the event. Stay tuned for more.
