MeeGo Releases In-Vehicle-Infotainment Version 1.0

Aug 03, 2010

On the tail of last week's GENIVI announcement, MeeGo releases a version of the OS targeted at vehicle user interfaces.

Last week, the GENIVI Alliance announced that it had selected MeeGo as its platform for in-vehicle infotainment, meaning that the Linux-based operating system would power future in-car media centers made by GM, BMW, and other car manufacturers. Now, MeeGo announced the release of its In-Vehicle-Infotainment build of the operating system.

The sample user interface that comes with the MeeGo IVI.

The release includes a sample IVI home screen and taskbar, designed with Automotive Center Console HMI requirements in mind. Also included is a sample dialer application and a sample navigation program. Additionally, the UX is built on Kernel version 2.6.33 and with UI for managing network connections. The Fennec Browser is the default browser for the IVI.

The release notes are available here. Installation instructions can be found here .
