Chevy, Ford Add Smartphone-Based GPS Apps to Cars

Both Chevrolet and Ford Motor Company are facilitating the use of smartphone-based navigation apps in the dashboards of their vehicles. The 2013 Chevy Spark, for example, lets Android and iPhone owners connect their smartphones to the car through a feature called MyLink. Chevy is offering a $50 mapping application, called BringGo, which can be installed on the smartphone and used to deliver navigation content to the car's dashboard. Similarly, Ford has an app called Car Connect that will connect an Android device to Ford's Sync system (an iPhone app is under development). Car Connect costs $25 per year, and can be used with TeleNav's Scout navigation application to push navigation services to the car's dashboard. Both options improve the in-car navigation experience offered by smartphones while still allowing consumers to avoid expensive in-dash navigation systems.
