Saab will soon be offering Android equipped entertainment systems built in to their luxury cars. The IQon in car entertainment system is likely to make use of Google Maps for navigation as well as email and media application, but could also be used to control more advanced functions on the car such as chassis handling, climate control or even the security system!
Saab seem pretty eager to get developers on-board and are opening the application interface (API) for third party developers.
Although a pretty novel idea Saab won’t be the first car manufacturer to use Android in their cars, that honor has already gone to Chinese car company Roewe who launched its Roewe 350 saloon last year complete with Android interface and 3G data connection.
