Garmin has a lot more planned than making personal nav devices — and they’re even going beyond OE infotainment systems.
They introduced a new platform at CES. K2 promises to be more than a mere navigation add-on.
It will feature a 10-inch touchscreen that will function like a large smartphone with online connectivity.
Another larger screen though will serve as the car’s instrument cluster.
With Bluetooth, drivers would be able to connect their phones and have the system deal with calls and messages. Voice command will make it safe for people to access features and data while driving.
The system may offer even more when it actually goes into a production car. As of now it is not slated for any vehicle.
