Car Media/Navigation/iPhone Integration

in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
normally, I like to cruise the Yahoo Finance message boards and read the idiotic statements about how AAPL is going to $10, or to $400 next week. Crazy people. I ran across someone who actually has a good idea:

"Ok so I have been speanding much time looking over car head units to work with my iTunes. But may are just like a blackberry in design conplicated and not very fun or inovative.

What if Apple did what they did to the phone industry...... to the car music industry?

A Apple car headunit or medua reciver introduced at Macworld! A total sleeper move! Supports HD, WiFi and Google Maps. Plus have iphone blutoooth functions. The best part of all a full version of Leopard on it.

This was just a thought but I wish I was on the design team so I could make it happen!!"


"Great concept - but why build it into the car? If you do that, you need to share profit with the car makers, make deals with them, wait for them to re-engineer their dashboards, etc. Just build a hand held (a 5 or 6 inch screen) and let people take it anywhere - the car, the boat, the train, whatever. You can call it an iPod Touch Maxi - sell it for around $699 with 3G, navigation option, etc. Works in any car!"

"This is my new inovation that the Apple Team should consider!!

You clould make it a removable face!!!"


I actually like where this person's head is at. Apple could easily create a GPS/Mac/iPod module to take (or install) into a car.
