  5. Korean “Infill” Car Computer R&D team back in action?

    by , 03-24-2009 at 07:18 AM
    A blast of e-mail was sent out on Monday to all the car computer and telematics stores around the globe by some former employees of the now defunct Infill and Maxan. (we were open cced). Apparently they have formed a new company called HTS. The e-mail states they are accepting advanced orders on their FunDi G7. There are lots of concerns, but maybe it is just because they are still in stealth mode.

    •As of Monday 3/23/2009 their domain carpcmall.com points to a parked website.
    •Their PDF looks like CAD rendered image
    •“Accepting advanced orders” Hmm. Have we heard that before in the car PC world?
