Backseat driver game

Backseat driver game

Toyota’s own entertainment division ToyToyota has created a GPS based iPhone app called Backseat Driver. The app is actually a game in which users - especially kids - have to steer a virtual car on a road that mirrors what happens on the real road. On the way, little objects need to be picked up to gain points.

Why it matters

This example shows that carmakers are really on top of in-car entertainment too. It’s not all about pleasing the buyer or the driver of a car either – this brand thinks of the (little) passengers too. In fact the in-car experience is increasingly important for car manufacturers who see they now have a great opportunity to really connect with their consumers every time they drive.
