StreetDeck

At DEMO2006, MP3Car introduced the first complete in-car software platform called StreetDeck. The ‘enabler’ boasts an impressive feature list including:

  • Touch Screen Control
  • Navigation & Mapping
  • Bluetooth Phone Integration
  • Satellite Radio
  • Vehicle Diagnostics
  • Rear-view Camera Support
  • CD player/MP3 Extraction
  • MP3 Player
  • FM Radio
  • DVD/Video Player
  • Picture Viewer
  • WiFi Sync Support

However, with the $1,699.00 hardware bundle price and Apple’s iPod already having rosy relationships with automobile manufacturers and Portal Player announcing plans to develop WiFi and Bluetooth capable devices I think it’ll be a while before StreetDeck makes a noticable dent in the automobile market.
