GM and Google Could Partner Up To Battle Ford’s SYNC System

GM and Google Could Partner Up To Battle Ford’s SYNC System

Google and General Motors are reportedly in negotiations to partner on an in-car telematics system that would take aim at Ford and Microsoft’s SYNC system. Rumored to be a derivative of the Android operating system, it would apparently go beyond entertainment and connectivity features and allow owners to unlock and start their cars, something SYNC isn’t capable of doing yet.

One aspect of the potential tie-up is whether GM or Google would take over the GPS navigation systems, as both GM’s Onstar and Google’s Android have their own proprietary navigation systems.
