mp3Car.com interviews Azentek - navigation mirror and their car computers
At the SEMA 2008 Azentek booth, we interviewed Donnie to hear a little bit about their new navigation smart mirror product. Windows Mobile devices really don’t fall in mp3car’s sweet spot, but this is an interesting form factor for a PND. Without giving it a full run through or a drive test, this mirror seems like it would be perfect for users who wants something that works out of the box.
So What is happening with their car computing efforts? Azentek is no longer bringing their original double din car PC into production and are starting on a brand new double din model which will be on display at CES, but not available for purchase until Q1 or Q2 2009.
The main features of this redesigned product set for release at CES will be increased tolerances to environmental and shock extremes as well as the ability for users to upgrade the Intel processor. More details will be available at CES.
Azentek also confirmed that Centrafuse is their software platform of choice and they will be using that in a modified Azentek branded form for the release at CES.
Saw the Azentek PC today first hand!
Not sure whats going on with the product but I got to evaulate one today but the system was running xp in chinese i believe. It was close to the end of the day so I will get a look see in the am. Wonder if I can get it installed in my vehicle for testing... wishful thinking.
