Jed Fisher's curator insight, March 8, 2013 7:51 AM

I'm very interested in this. There are a ton of solutions that really fit well for an in-car experience. The key for the App developers is to make compelling Apps that make sense and work well from within the car. 
I love that this will result in Apps that let me better engage, use, and understand my particular vehicle, it's location, and what can be done with it. 
I'm glad Ford has taken a open approach and not start with some closed

proprietary system.

While initial focus will likely be apps for in car entertainment and information services, the open sourcing of the API's adds a lot of potential for smart telematics apps that better help with traffic management, environmental reporting etc as well. Be worth tracking this.
