Preface

Preface

The time for in-car computing has arrived. There are strong signs in every direction that personal computing technology will soon take over the car. It started with satellite radio, bringing streaming digital audio to the car. Then the iPod captured the digital audio player market and suddenly became a defacto standard car audio component. MP3 players, in-car navigation systems, and touchscreens are now standard in many vehicles—and it won’t stop there.

So why do people go through all the trouble of installing computers in their cars?

Choice is one reason. Today, you are locked into the navigation system that came with your car, if it even came with one—and the costs of upgrading to a new one are immense. Why shouldn’t you be able to say, “I like the navigation system in the Infiniti, I think I’ll get that for my Civic”? With an in-car computer, you can choose the implementation that you like the best.
