2014 Acura RLX will use Agero for infotainment system services
Connectivity features on the Acura RLX include a touch-screen interface for e-mail. Real-time traffic reporting will include surface streets as well as freeways.
Agero Connected Services said it will provide core services for the 2014 Acura RLX luxury sedan's AcuraLink connected-car system this spring.
AcuraLink, an online-based system that brings infotainment to drivers, will be delivered through Agero's system.
The contract with Honda Motor Co.'s luxury brand brings a new customer to Agero.
"This is the first time we've worked with Acura," said Gary Wallace, Agero's vice president of corporate relations. "We certainly hope to work with them more" in the future.
A new feature lets owners send destination information from their phones to the RLX navigation screen, according to Agero.
Agero Connected Services, of Dallas, provides connected-vehicle services for the automotive, insurance and aftermarket industries.
Said Agero President Charles Cavolina in a statement: "AcuraLink brings the ownership experience beyond the car and personalizes Acura's brand experience to the AcuraLink user."
