Sync OnStar

Automotive News - December 12, 2010

Telem­at­ics, the long dis­tance trans­mis­sion of com­put­er­ized infor­ma­tion, affects vehi­cle sales on the show­room floor for Ford and GM. Each uses dif­fer­ent tech­nol­o­gy to enable ser­vices includ­ing hands-free phone, point-to-point direc­tions, enter­tain­ment and music as well as 911 calls and safe­ty. GM’s OnStar embed­ded tech­nol­o­gy improves reli­a­bil­i­ty while Ford’s Sync, not embed­ded, improves flex­i­bil­i­ty for Ford’s world car vision.
