David Acton, President of the Transformation Network and a former General Motors telematics executive, told a SEMA seminar audience that the once-adversarial relationship between the aftermarket and OEMs in telematics/infotainment is disappearing—that vehicle manufacturers are using open architecture and just a few common data busses. And in addition to OEM gateways, he noted that the aftermarket can add others.

Further, Acton pointed to the BMW -led initiative, NGTP (Next Generation Telematics Protocol), a technology-neutral approach to the delivery of all telematics, although it's currently focused on WiFi, VoIP, and UMTS-3G (cellular).
