Back in march VIA announced the new automotive ivp-7500 (press release ). The announcement got some press from slashgear , crunchgear and has spurred discussions on our forums . Via claims onboard support for Bluetooth and GPS, which in all reality appear to just be add on modules. It seems like VIA took an off the shelf board, slapped on a few modules and rebranded old tech to create the appearance of an automotive solution. This might be perfect for a hobbyist or an R&D lab but you can forget about auto provider shipping silicone with a 0c-60c spec. If someone from VIA would like to explain the press release in more details, please post on the forums or e-mail us. We would be happy to write some revised commentary if there is something we are missing. Talk about this Blog post on our forums.
