Rather than offer proprietary in-car navigation solutions, auto makers Ford and Chevy are looking to smartphones for their driver's navigation needs, says a report in the New York Times. Ford is working with Telenav on a solution that will let smartphone owners connect their phone-based maps application to car's in-dash display. The Ford solution is powered by Ford's Sync system and requires the use of the CarConnect app, which costs US$25 a year. An Android-compatible version is available now, while an iPhone version is in the works. Chevy is offering a similar system in its 2013 Spark model. Spark owners can take advantage to the Chevy's MyLink system and the $50 BringGo app which sends navigation data to car's dash.
