A European company called Ca-Fi has said they’ll debut will debut an Android-based car infotainment system called Dashlinq in January 2013.
Dashlinq is a complete new head unit line and is said to blend the advantages of an Android based car infotainment system with the strength of high-end car stereo systems of the years past.
The Dashlinq line is Double-DIN sized universal system, but it comes with a large 6.95 inch multi-touch screen and enables zoom in maps and enlarges pictures and text only by spreading the fingers on the screen. Ca-Fi is following the standards of Android devices, with ‘home’, ‘menu’, ‘back, ‘volume’ and the ‘power’ button.
As the only Android-based car stereo system in its class, the entertainment system is powered by an extra digital signal processor (DSP) for an optimal sound and video experience. Ports for additional monitors and cameras can be found at the backside as same as the ports for subwoofer and speakers. The SD card slot on the front panel provides space for up to 32GB storage for maps, media files and apps.
