Telematics Update: Content & Apps for Automotive USA 2013 Conference moves to San Francisco for North America’s largest event dedicated to automotive applications

Telematics Update will bring together 250+ industry leading companies from across the automotive, application developer, mobile, digital and consumer electronics industries, including General Motors, Honda, Foursquare, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, Pandora and Volkswagen at the Content & Apps for Automotive USA 2013 Conference (December 11-12, San Francisco) to debate the future of content in the car. 


By the end of 2013, ABI Research (2013) estimates that the mobile app market will be $27 billion. Despite this growth in revenue apps are generating in mobile and the increasingly integral role they are playing in the life of consumers, automakers have yet to perfect how apps should be delivered to the vehicle and how this content is set to drive revenues. With the mobile world reinventing itself and the expectations of consumers on an annual basis, the traditionally dogmatic automotive world has come head to head with the ‘move fast and break stuff’ attitude of Silicon Valley.


Master the Connected Car User Experience

Telematics Update, Project Director, Gareth Ragg stated, “As the expectations of mobile apps in the consumer world continues to gain pace, so do the expectations that this experience will seamlessly extend into the car.” He continues, “As we look forward to 2014 it is critical that the connected car ecosystem unites to tackle the standards, business models and technology that will establish the car as a unique platform at the forefront of empowering consumers with cutting edge applications and content.”   

Content & Apps for Automotive USA 2013 Conference,December 11-12, San Francisco, is North America’s largest event dedicated to automotive content. It will tackle how to create a new app paradigm for the car by developing a flexible auto-grade content platform.
