standard or stagnate?
looking at the lead time to get things like Ford Sync implemented in cars - and the obsession with only making it for new models not after market retrofit - I wonder how long (decades?) and investment here will take to pay off?
I really like things like the MotoCarma bluetooth/ODB-II connectivity app and think that's a good step in the right direction, along with the S=recent "android powered" Saab concept car
Ideal solution for me is something like a 7" Slate and a car dock, and the slate functions as nav, music, eco-friendly monitoring etc when docked (and gets a power and antenna boost) but goes with me from car to office and back again (so a standard dock connector/port/layout would be useful... DIN/Dual-DIN stereo slots are a great start...
