Google and Apple, Move Over: Toyota Will Be Doing Just Fine With Their Connected Cars

It’s true — automakers clear and wide (three of them, actually) will make it real easy to connect car buyers wirelessly with their vehicles through apps and the Internet without even working with Google or Apple. Shocking, isn’t it?

And One of Those Automakers Is None Other Than ToyotaToyota connected cars-1

The digital age has definitely arrived — first hitting computers, then hitting mobile devices, and now we’re seeing it in our cars, except manufacturers are offering their own brand of digital goodness to keep the revenue close to their chest. That’s a great thing for the auto industry. Nay, for the auto market, but we bet you’re wondering just what Toyota will be doing to make that happen.

Toyota has, basically, developed a new branch of their brand, simply called the “Connected Car Company.” It’s a platform dedicated to providing those car buyers (and soon to be owners) with the apps and Internet connectivity they love so dearly without even holding their hands with Google or Apple at all. The platform utilizes what’s called the “Mobility Service,” or as it’s going to termed, MSPF. We’re talking full control here. No partnerships or affiliations. Effectively, Toyota will be an Internet-connected brand with its own service for the World Wide Web — just for their cars.

It’s a Bold Move, One That’s Telling of This Auto Industry

Big steps. Not little ones. Big money for automobiles, and it’s pretty clear that consumers need to get in on the action. We’re going to have smart cars operating solely on their own without connections powered by Google, Apple, or other ISPs. OEMs will have closed the digital gap, and the market honestly can’t possibly get any better than that.

Chances are, though, it’ll still get even better, which is why you need to sign up with LOANS 4 CARS right now and see what’s available.
