TrustedReviews Drives Into Car Tech

Though you may not have realised it, we've been reviewing in-car technology on TrustedReviews for a fair while. It has occurred to us, however, that as great as giving you the low-down on after market satellite navigation systems and Bluetooth hands-free kits is, a lot of you won't be buying third party kit because your car will have come with it built-in. Considering the price that some manufacturers ask for adding sat-nav or iPod-connectivity to a car, it's important to find out how good these options are before ticking the boxes.

Therefore we have launched a dedicated Car Tech section. Here you'll find our take on the latest and greatest in-car technology offered by manufacturers from Audi to Zonda and everything in between. If you want to know exactly what separates a £250 TomTom and a £50 stereo from a £2,000 factory fitted sat-nav and entertainment system - if anything - then we'll have the answer.

Don't worry; this coverage won't be coming at the expense of our existing news and reviews of third party car tech. In fact, everything that's designed to be used in a car, will be neatly presented in our new Car Tech section.

Anyhow, what are you waiting for? Get reading!

Yeah yeah, this is just to provide us with 'informative reviews on in-built car tech' huh guys? Don't think your readers can't see through this blatant plan to pick up pretty women Richard Gere style in flashy sports cars (turns green with envy). No doubt you'll try inviting them back to your pads to show off all your other ill-gotten gains. Shame on you TR!

For some reason I keep on hearing "White and Nerdy" in the background. ;)

@ Mighty Ben

The Fiat 500 1.3 diesel is indeed quite a babe magnet...

Great idea on bringing out a dedicated car tech section. Other than Cnet with mostly US spec cars, there wasn't anything comparable on the net. A couple of wishes/suggestions. Short videos of the reviewed tech from the cars would be great and also an image gallery at the end of the car tech article with higher res pictures would be nice. Other than that, really gotta say, good thinking!

@Ed - there is no wish, only do! ;)

To quote Robocop: "I like it!". Given that this is car tech specifically, please can you say which other cars in the manufacturer's range can offer the same functionality? For example, Fiat have had various smart addons for their cars since about 2000. I remember seeing an early Stilo with a SIM card slot that allowed it dial-up internet access for certain functions.
