Not. I’ve got a larger post going on this topic, but car dashboard ‘ownership’ will take a long while to move any money or power around in tech, and may never happen.

  • Smartphones may become the dashboard, at least from a value-added services perspective.
  • Car sharing and similar services accelerate both trends.
  • And most importantly, just about every private car owner on the planet already has a smartphone. Their behavior is spoken for.
