Graphics, User Interfaces

There's certainly some hope on the horizon with Apple and Google, though just how good these systems will be remains to be seen. One thing is clear, though: the current state of all in-car experiences is incredibly bad. For those manufacturers looking to go it alone, I don't expect much.

In-car software is absolutely horrifying and crazy complex. A good friend of mine regularly drives brand new and super-expensive cars (in the hundreds of thousands of euros category), and even in those cars, the user interfaces are just terrible. There's a lot of room for improvement and disruption here.

Car dashboard usability blows at the moment because of touch screens and hoping for Apple or Google to fix that is just hilarious. They know even less about doing an in car UI than car manufacturers. Heck, Google has been trying to get Android to work on phones for ears now and it's still a usability disaster.
