One one the problems with driving in connected cars in bad weather such as storm or rain storms is that the driver has to keep his attention on the road. AccuWeather will offer a way to hear the latest weather conditions with Kaliki Audio for audio weather information forecasts in GM cars.
AccuWeather announced its partnership with BT Software and the Kaliki Audio Newsstand to allow drivers hear current weather conditions and forecasts on-demand in their cars in 2014.
Drivers can hear their local weather conditions now, instead of waiting for the news cycle on the radio. Kaliki is the spoken word platform that allows consumers to access their favorite audio news and information content on-demand, anytime — in-car, online, and on the go.
The Kaliki Audio Newsstand is a new app in the Chevrolet AppShop, announced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. The AppShop biaMyLink infotainment, including the Corvette, Equinox, Impala, Malibu, Volt, Silverado and Silverado HD.
Starting in 2014, AccuWeather and Kaliki will provide weather forecasts in over 100 metropolitan areas in the US and Canada including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Dallas, Toronto, Phoenix, Vancouver, San Diego, Seattle, and Miami. Later in 2014, AccuWeather and Kaliki will provide even more value to drivers by providing in-vehicle push notifications of inclement weather conditions so that drivers can be aware of changing weather conditions in a timely manner.
