General Motors planning over-the-air update method for infotainment systems

General Motors plans to release a new infotainment system that allows for over-the-air updates to vehicle software, a press release posted on the NY Auto Giant website said.

Over-the-air updates for an entire infotainment system are not common except on some vehicles such as Teslas.

"We are in the process of deploying a new electrical architecture, which is a pretty comprehensive undertaking, and that's well underway, as well as a whole new generation of infotainment systems," General Motors CEO Mary Barra said in the release.

The Chevy Bolt is already capable of over-the-air updates, but General Motors has not activated a means to perform the updates, Vijay Iyer, spokesperson for General Motors, said in the release. The Bolt's over-the-air updates are currently limited to OnStar services, Iyer said.
