This will extend the 7digital connected-device experience to the car. The QNX CAR platform for infotainment systems is based on QNX technology deployed in millions of cars on the road. Most of the world’s major automotive manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, GM, Honda, and Toyota, ship cars with QNX-based infotainment systems. The integration has been completed using the 7digital Application Programming Interface (API), which allows 7digital’s partners and developers to build digital music stores into existing products and services using 7digital’s technology platform. The QNX CAR platform is available now to automotive companies wanting to build a native HTML5 music application store within car infotainment systems.
