Android-Based In-Car Infotainment Systems

If you like anything Android (like me) then you might be interested in Innotrends new product line, Ca-fi. With this new innovative car infotainment system people will have android access right in their cars, where their radio “was”…

Have you ever been stuck in a traffic jam and wanted to check your email or the weather? With the Ca-fi you can do all of this and more. While you’re driving you can stream music, get GPS navigation, or talk with your friends and family (and not-so-friends) with hands-free calling. There are also many other features/apps that probably shouldn’t be used by drivers (angry birds, fruit ninja, web  browser) but, could be very useful in a parking lot, driveway, etc.

All of the models have 6.2 inch capacitive 800 x 480 touch screen displays and allow users access content with its 3G dongle. The system also includes a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor.  Some functionality relies on having a separate android device (the system has bluetooth). But, the infotainment device also carries some of its own features that don’t need an external android device.

The Ca-fi product line has multiple models available that fit different major automobile brands such as Mazda, Ford, Toyota, Honda, Chevrolet and Kia. They range around  $700 – $900.

About Web Ninja

I am an avid web designer and technology compelled me into journalism. My career started out with a blog about how to hack your Windows PC, but it developed into my love for Apple (which is now nonexistent). Before I was introduced to Android I was an Apple fanboy, I loved anything apple, iPhones, iPods, Macs, etc. Then, I was in Best Buy with a friend and he was buying a phone... An Android phone running Cupcake (1.6). He wasn't the techiest friend a guy could have, but he still loved technology. Now, this was a new phone at the time and of course, he had to get it. I thought the phone was going to be a ripoff of an iPhone but, soon I realized that it had potential. That's how my Android love developed. I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S2 from Sprint as well as an HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon.
