QNX helps integrate your car with your life. One great example is BMW’s ConnectedDrive system, which is QNX based. For example, if you plan out a trip using Google Maps, you can send that information to your BMW, where it will show your route on the main navigation display, instead of having to rely on your smartphone or printed instructions.
Additionally, the system helps bring in many of your smart-phone apps into your car, including email, calendar and social media, allowing you easy access to the office or home wherever you are. One more handy feature of the system is its ability to give you remote control of your vehicle. Lock or unlock the car, turn on the window defrosters or locate the car in a crowded parking lot, just with your smart-phone. It’s all the sort of technology that we expect out of our computers and smart-phones, so why not our cars too?
