Toyota Selects TeleNav, Open Streetmap and continued interest in OPEN architecture

With this announcement is is clear that Toyota is making its best to keep away from Android Auto and CarPlay. It is also worth noticing that for the first time a leading auto maker is using data from Openstreetmap to power a turn-by-turn GPS navigation system.


This is pretty clear evidence that Toyota continues to favor open source models and software that allows them to maintain control of their customer relationship. Add this to the news around SDL also tied in with UI Evolution and you have some nice bookends around Linux in the future of the worlds largest automaker.
