Try almost any modern infotainment system. Most feel like they’re a decade behind today’s gadgets in terms of touch-screen responsiveness and resolution. So why don’t cars offer us technology on par with smartphones and tablets?

A company called QNX is hard at work answering that question and they invited us to their headquarters in Ontario, Canada for a preview of what’s to come.

Promising a slick, easy to use modern design and hardware plucked from today’s greatest devices, QNX’s idea is sound on paper.

You might not recognize the name QNX, but you certainly know its parent company: BlackBerry. Despite its obscurity at the consumer level, several auto manufacturers already use QNX technology. They include Toyota, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover, Acura and even General Motors.

Big Tech in Little Benz

Even with its strong ties to top automakers, QNX is still pressing to innovate, showcasing its latest developments in a Mercedes CLA 45 AMG. First seen at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, this car features a huge, high-resolution display, a powerful multi-core processor, a spiffy digital dash and all the apps to show off such impressive hardware.
What do you think of in-car technology?

I love all the new stuff that's came out and will be coming out. As long as it looks good and works I have no problem with any of it :)

Back in 1991 if you bought a car and got rid of it in 1998, chances were you got little or no new features (tape deck vs cd player lol), at best it was less miles and a newer build date.

Compare the features of a 2007 tsx to a 2014 accord. Backup cam, Pandora, siri eyes free, forward collision mitigation system, bluetooth audio, side view mirror camera, usb port, HS radio, real time traffic on nav...

..goes on and on. Funny how technology has really welcomed itself into the automotive industry the last half decade.

This article goes to that its progress won't be a linear trend. Lol
