A perfect match: Automobile Infotainment system running on Android â„¢
Innotrends Ltd, a Hong Kong based company, has in collaboration with hardware and software developers created an innovative 2-DIN Car infotainment system that is built on Android â„¢ 2.3 and powered by a 1.2 GHz processor. Their Ca-Fi system will be among the first Androidâ„¢ systems to be launched on the market.
A 3G modem allows surfing the Internet, as well as downloading apps for a variety of purposes, such as navigation or fuel consumption monitoring. Furthermore, the device has Bluetooth hands-free calling, music streaming and can connect to steering wheel stereo controls.
The Ca-Fi system interface is a 6.2 inch touch screen LCD, with a resolution of 800 * 480 pixels. The screen is large enough to have ease of access to applications and GPS. In addition to the 4x45W audio, output connections are available for camera, USB and antennas. Supplemented by a DVD player, two slots for MicroSD cards for multimedia and navigation data, the Ca-Fi system is a real information and entertainment center for automobiles.
