Garmun makes in-car info system for 2013 Suzukis

Garmin branched out into in-car GPS and media systems for the first time Monday through a deal with Suzuki. "Most" 2013 model year Suzuki cars will get a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface that both covers the prerequisite GPS navigation as well as support for playing back from phones and iPods through USB, the aux-in jack, or Bluetooth. The system supports voice control to keep hands on the wheel, and smartphone links that include Pandora radio access for iPhone users and broader tools for gas, parking, traffic, and weather drawn from Android phones.

Suzuki steps into iOS promo games

An update to the Viper SmartStart app for iOS has been released by Directed Electronics. The upgrade includes a new feature dubbed SmartPark, which marks a parking spot with GPS data. A car's location is recorded every time the door lock button is pressed, and can be recalled by pressing the Find My Car button. An associated SnakeEyes function presents a parking spot within an augmented reality view. SmartStart is a free download in the App Store, although using features beyond SmartPark requires Viper hardware.
