Dipublikasikan tanggal 19 Jan 2018
Infotainment systems at the North American International Auto Show are nothing like our smartphones. Still, automakers are gradually working more tech features into production cars like the Volkswagen Jetta personal cockpit. Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are everywhere in the cars at the Detroit auto show. Subscribe:

  • Tesla is a good 10 years ahead as far as infotainment, and they had it since 2012. And not a single car manufacturer has even come close.

  • Ford has Alexa in it

  • What a pointless video

  • She cursed in the first like 10 seconds, hello kids are watching.

  • gone soft.... What happens when you hear that voice with that clever term (@ the 8-second mark) while looking at that face?

  • I have a question about infotainment systems and the heat of summer. How hot can these get before frying? Parking outside in the sun gets the inside of the vehicle very hot, even if there is a sun shade on the front windshield. How do auto manufacturers keep these systems cool enough? Or do they?....And we who have them are on 'borrowed time'?

    • The screen itself may be hot, but the internals are lodged in the dashboard. Heat will take longer to reach the infotainment hardware. And even so, the screen only turns on when the car is on, and when the car is started on a hot day, usually the AC will start and cool the whole thing right down.

  • If they can't make these upgradeable and hack proof then they are just lease bound

  • You

  • interesting

  • worry buyer sleep topmgin poetry responsible signature wood sell implication near strange

  • She sucks

  • they look like cellphone makers scrambling to get onto the touchscreen game, what a mess

  • Amazon is a global scam and Amazon boss is a fraud star.

    • Riad Ahmed how?

  • i'm so sick of seeing concept cars ! i wanna see fully executed

  • And the only company that’s figured it out right wasn’t at the show

  • Excellent lady. Wow that is good. I have done computers for 41 years. You really told it like it is on telematics.

  • So we're just dropping f-bombs at will now? Why? Completely unnecessary.

  • Best car infotainment Auto show👏👌🏻

  • The f word was unnecessary

  • What you're saying about the VW Active Info Display is simply wrong. They've integrated it just a few months after Audi did, because they use the same infotainment system in the whole VW Group. The system the Active Info Display works on top of is the so called MIB (Modularer Infotainment Baukasten, modular infotainment kit), which VW Group build in their cars since late 2014. Your host presents it, as if they'd just introduced it. It may be new to the Jetta, yes. But it is still technology from 2014. By the way: It's Volkswagen and not [voukswaggon]. You are one of the few native English speakers, who manage to say Audi instead of [ooodi], so saying Volkswagen (especially in a format about cars) should not be too much to ask for.

  • Auto makers are so horribly bad at this. They're all still hung up on trying to make they're systems look like minority report rather than something clean and safe and useable. Either that or a koi fish controlled by your eyes?? Ridiculous! The UI ideas we need in our cars are already out there, no need for this wasteful 'innovation' And to the people complaining about her swearing at the beginning: it was a smart pun (instrument cluster) - and it was the editing that made it seem jumpy.

  • The way she pressed the buttons showed she is not a car gal so cringeworthy how she present

  • E D G E Y L A N G U A G E

  • No thank you. Give me buttons and dials, and I want to control my car not a computer.

  • Nobody in detroit can afford those cars anyway lol.

  • The title ofthe video is "Best car Infotainment systems", yet it felt more like a complaint video about what isn't here yet. I was hoping for more details on what was shown. #disappointed

  • I still don't understand why I would need Alexa on my car. Hey Alexa, buy me a new car, this one is a piece of crap, it comes with Alexa.

  • Good god this was awful....

  • Your voice modulation sucks. It was very annoying to listen. Stopped watching immediately.

  • All automakers suck at ux/infotainment beside tesla

  • I'm guessing some car companies probably aren't fond of the idea of a 3rd party company like Amazon, Google or Apple having a stake in their vehicles but the majority of stock infotainment systems suck. They're laggy, and unintuitive. If it's not as responsive as Android Auto or Apple's system, just don't bother...

  • My eyes are tired off screens..

  • When did all of these random ass average men suddenly become professional ID-tv critics. Chill out, It's a car show, not a presidential campaign.

  • Audi is Volkswagen......

  • ugh cringy

  • I guess I understand that automation = safety, but I like driving, and I would like to keen on enjoying driving

  • tesla is so far above the level , it forces the reviewer to exclude it from the list.

  • "Instrument cluster f***" ...just don't 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • She sounds very bland and very rookie on the subject.

  • not impressed

  • why start the first sentence with cluster F?

  • Great overview. Given how much of a player Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are it would be great to see more heat put on Apple and Google for how closed off their ecosystem is though.

  • Car makers doing infotainment systems = fail. Just use Google's or Apple's and add the car stuff to the system. Let who knows how to build software, do the software thing. Isn't hard at all.

  • Can verge move her to something else? Like coffin or toe nail clippers reviews?

  • Why isn't every automaker scrambling to replicate the screen in the Tesla Model S? It's far superior to all of these lame attempts!

  • Srry but new host plz

  • Seriously? Out of all the panel you say that if important to see new features like LED strip colour control??

  • and y’all need to chill about the F word i swear to god. it’s not the victorian era chill

  • read that they want to start putting advertisements on in car screens unless you pay an add free subscription price to the car company....

  • Man i'm surprised by the start wasn't expecting that :(

  • Can you guys add a warning when you decide to unnecessarily cuss in a video??? Some of us have kids, you know?!!!

  • What model is shown at 3:50?

  • Fact is, Tesla is still years ahead. The push to develop all the new infotainment systems you see would not be had it not been for Tesla innovating, pushing the envelope and disrupting the stagnant status quo as far back as 2008-09.

  • The cussing in the opening line is Unnecessary. I’m setting in front of the TV with my kid and I get an F bomb for no reason. Can’t even watch The Verge without having to put ear muffs on my kid, you’re better then this.

  • Great video footage, but please stop the cursing. It’s not funny, so why do it?We’re trying to enjoy the car reviews, etc., and she starts out with the “cluster F...” comment.

  • Can people chill? The verge isn’t a kid channel. One swear word wont do anything. Jeez the internet gets so offended really easily.

  • How do you try try and act edgy... Drop the F bomb. Sooooo progressive!!!

  • All you did was complain wow.. you suck

  • Please never ever use this girl again, half the time she seems to not know what she's talking about and the other half is just lack of self confidence, please prepare better before making a video
