Automakers now are attempting to keep up with developing technology by adding apps behind the wheel.
QNX Software says they've created a "connected cockpit" with a curved touch screen that displays tweets, emails, and navigation instructions right behind the wheel. The cost of the dashboard could then be adjusted to any price level.
A new web app also lets drivers lock doors, or check the gas tank from their smartphone.
Car companies say the challenge for any connected car will be to harness entertainment and communications options without creating too many additional distractions.
