There are many news reports flooding in from the Geneva Motor Show which kicked off yesterday. So far we have brought you news about the Saab’s new IQon Infotainment system. This news however is of a different integrated system. The Volkswagen Bulli concept has successfully managed to accommodate for use of the iPad in the car.
I say successfully, as in the past attempts of making the iPad a part of the dash have been pretty bad according to Auto Spies. They were lucky enough to be at the event in Geneva and were able to see the demonstration, taking lots of pictures as well.
They say that VW ‘stunned’ the show with the reveal of their Microbus but what was more shocking was how well the iPad integration worked. The tablet is accommodated in a cradle designed especially for it central to the dashboard. It sits on a pivot so the passenger can also use the device if needed.
It allows for navigation of course, music playing and climate control. Gives heads up display of the speedometer, other display icons, communicates with Bulli’s Bluetooth and even lets you read e-mails.
