    Better name than car computing for car computing?

    So i keep talking about what mp3Car is and people get very confused and assume that we are dealing with the car's computer.

    We are kicking around terms over here and just wondering what you guys think is a clear word or phrase for the purpose of this community.

    We have sort of tentatively settled on in-vehicle infotainment...but, there must be something better.

    in-vehicle infotainment is probably comes closest to describing what we do, but I agree, there must be something better

    Brainstorming here:


    Acquired AutoMobile Media Center, Navigation and Control

    AutoMobile Entertainment via Personal Computer.

    AutoMobile Information and Entertainment PC.

    Automobile Information, entertainment and control via acquired Personal Computer (a.k.a. AutoPC studies)


    Added Automobile PC. (simples)

    Acquired Automobile PC. (is it a syndrome?)

    Added integrated Automobile PC.

    Modded in-car PCs.







    Anything but "infotainment""...I hate that word.

    carPC. I think is an awesome term and perfectly describes what it is.

    It's putting a PC into a car ;-)

    Shouldn't be confusing because a car does not have a Personal Computer.


    Otherwise you have to go to long names like Integrated Mobile Computing Solution (mo-co-so! trademarked... dang)

    I too like carPC & carputer.

    Maybe caputer is more appropriate??? (LOL!)

    And I also like InCar or in-car as a descriptor (though that name is/was used for car audio).
    MobilePC or MobPC, but mobos & countries that don't use "cells" killed those.
