News: Garmin launch new Dash Cameras

pocketgpsworld.com
Garmin have bolstered their range of drive recorders with two new models, the Dash Cam 45 and Dash Cam 55.

In addition to the drive recorder/eye witness functionality, the new units have automatic incident detection using a G-Sensor to save recorded footage, GPS, and advanced driver alert features including forward collision alerts and lane departure warnings.

The new models also support voice control enabling drivers to start and stop recordings without having to interact with the device. The Dash Cam 55 has a maximum video resolution of 1440p using a 3.7 megapixel sensor whereas the Dash Cam 45 supports a maximum of 1080p via a 2.1 megapixel sensor. Both feature 2-inch LCD displays.

It is also possible to use the camera to capture a 'Travelapse', a video capture of an entire journey that compresses hours of footage into a few minutes, a novel new feature.

Both models will be available to buy soon, the Dash Cam 55 has a suggested RRP of £149.99 and the Dash Cam 45 £129.99.

News: SpaceX wins second GPS launch contract

pocketgpsworld.com
Space X has won it's second contract to launch the next generation of GPS satellites beating United Launch Alliance (ULA) to secure the $96m deal.

It's the first time Space X has beaten ULA. As we reported back in August 2016, ULA did not compete for the first contract as its Atlas 5 launcher was not expected to be ready in time. ULA has been the launch partner for 12 of the current GPS satellites so the loss of this contract will be a big blow to the company, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin Space Systems and Boeing Defense, Space & Security.

The launch is expected to take place early 2019 and it is likely that they will use their Falcon launch vehicle which has a first stage that can land back on earth for re-use.

News: BMW focusses on ConnectedDrive and CarPlay, NO Android Auto

pocketgpsworld.com
Following on from a newsletter editorial about CarPlay and Android Auto support a few weeks back, BMW have revealed that they will not be offering Android Auto in future models.

At Mobile World Congress Barcelona last month they were demonstrating their self-driving car development and disclosed that whilst they will be offering Apple CarPlay on new models they have chosen not to support Android Auto, citing control over the customer interface and brand experience as deciding factors.

They further explained that even Apple CarPlay will not be the core focus, instead they are developing their own solution, Apps for Auto, which will be part of their existing ConnectedDrive service.

It's a move that is sure to frustrate owners, the beauty of offering CarPlay AND Android Auto support is you leave the choice of phone platform to the user. Dictating choice in this way is sure to anger owners and may even lose them sales when the next purchase is due. Developing your own competing service in-house goes against the entire point of these services, they will always be playing catch up with the features available via smartphone apps.
