Merits of the platform
Drivers worldwide have been looking forward to a time when they would gain quicker access to digital services, and the time has come! The two business giants have channeled efforts and resources to ensure drivers easily access the new digital services and functions.
Microsoft has termed safety an essential part of the plan, and it intends to champion the most outstanding automotive quality standards. This business leader admits that the installation of vehicle software updates has always been somewhat complicated, and their collaboration is about sparking change. It has also pointed out trim lines and the variations in models as part of the things that bring about more confusion.
