Today's cars, trucks and SUVs continue to make it easier for drivers to use their mobile phones without holding them in their hands, while also adding 4G LTE capabilities, in-car WiFi hot spots and other high-tech features we're used to having in our homes and offices. At the Philadelphia Auto Show this week, eWEEK looked at myriad new electronic systems that are making their way into the latest vehicles, including wireless-charging pads so drivers can charge their mobile devices as they drive, large feature-filled in-dash display screens for music, communications and vehicle control systems, as well as more vehicles with integrated Bluetooth connections. In-vehicle 4G LTE capabilities, which began appearing in the last couple of years, continue to spread into more vehicles, making it easier for drivers and their passengers to get wireless connectivity for their mobile devices from just about anywhere. At the same time, in-dash displays are gaining more controls to give drivers more information, more alerts and more control over what is happening inside and around their vehicles.
