Google Android Interface For the Chevy Volt

jerryjamesstone writes “Earlier this month, General Motors hinted at a partnership with a major tech company to fully overhaul their telematics system, OnStar. While OnStar CEO Chris Preuss was tight-lipped about who that partner was, Motor Trend has recently reported that it’s Google. If the rumor’s true, GM will make the Chevy Volt the first Android-based vehicle to hit the road. The Motor Trend article suggests ‘Google would sell its Android operating system for in-car use,’ while the Wall Street Journal has a slightly different take: ‘The pairing would likely involve a way for users of Android-based smartphones to use OnStar features from their phone while not in their car … For instance, a person could find out information about their vehicle’s maintenance needs through the Android phone. In the case of the Volt, GM’s coming electric car, an owner may be able to keep track of the car’s battery charge without being in the car.’”
