Re: Closing in On HERE
danielcawrey, great points.  My thinking is that a "connected communications system" may be highly competitive.  I like your points about the dashboard as well - then it truly becomes an integrated communication system (including mapping).  Sounds like stock to own!

Re: Closing in On HERE
I have a been (and still am) a huge fan of the offline capable Here Maps from the days I worked for Nokia. It was given the needed attention to evolve into a succesfull entity with the big corporation and it just seems, as recently announced, that Nokia might just keep Here maps for now.

Re: Closing in On HERE
Mapping is big business, and the carmakers will never be able to control Apple or Google Maps. I think this is smart – redudant in some ways because of what other tech companies have done, but likely necessary. I think it's compelling to move maps from the smartphone to the dashboard.

Re: Closing in On HERE
Sarah, sounds like a smart move on the part of the carmakers.  It looks like they have put together a great deal and a great value proposition.   Interestsing model with the collaboration.   Leave it to the Germans - and I believe they will make it work!
