Come out either way while we wait.
A little turn here reminisce with me for a second act in the day before the automatic car window you -- use a little arm muscle to actually roll them down yourself.
Well there's even more change coming.
One of the cool is soon to be standards is wireless phone charging.
For your car Toyota is rolling out the first ever wireless phone charger in that 2013 Avalon limited edition model.
In here with all the details of this breakthrough is car Coach Lauren fix Lauren thank you so much for coming on.
You know we're trying to sort of cheer people up here as we're waiting to hear -- -- -- is that everyone's going away for Christmas break and nothing's gotten done.
So me out with that little look into the future.
This is actually incredibly cool tell me all about it.
The consumer electronic show years ago said that we're gonna get all this wireless connectivity and our cars.
And it has finally arrived not just the Avalon for 2013 but -- Dodge Dart has also gonna have.
A wireless connection for your car you can charge your phone -- -- and he left the house -- that -- -- charger and my -- my computer.
Or reluctant someone else's car rental car now you'll be able to place your phone at least with a toy and item pan it'll charge -- what you're driving -- you're always getting the charges like.
Wonderful for all of us or bring our blackberries and iphones and android could never have enough power not so great you just come in the car and you can behind me is when you're traveling and sort of sat them down an impact that this is one that would living your -- the times.
-- -- reminds me.
He did the first cars that had GPS and then and it seems -- magical and and futuristic and now all of a sudden you know pretty much every car.
-- their future you pay a little bit more for -- -- we've had sort of these revolutionary things or even the dvd player in the backseat is another one of those luxury add ons that.
Now you haven't a lot of cars it does this reach that level you thank.
Oh absolutely this is gonna.
Be something everyone's gonna start adding I just like you see why -- and cars.
That's becoming pretty much -- standard you can have can activity for those who will they don't have three G access on their ipads and whatever other little mini.
Tablets so this is great technology that will actually see people frustration.
And if that's a little extra edge of Dodge Dart and the China -- -- adding it's enough to closes sale.
When it's between mat or one of the competitor cars and think hey I tell you what I wouldn't -- -- wireless connect yeah iPhone.
It's always -- -- -- -- -- act absolutely and in fact it's at Toyota as the one that you hear coming out of this first like I would expect this to be BMW thing -- Mercedes thing or something more high and then then sort of a middle of the road car.
Like a Toyota being first what do you make it -- Why routine -- -- like -- and all the brands Audi Mercedes all the Germans are usually the first one to come out what that.
But I think that this is really why is it Toyota jumped on the bandwagon as well as -- that we can't forget them.
I think it's good that they're doing this because they really need to grab that market share back especially -- they did lose some of it -- all that excitement of the past history.
And they want to recapture those customers and keep them coming back it's all about customer retention.
So they can be the first one and that little extra.
-- or gadget or Wi-Fi and the car that's gonna make you buy that -- again and I think that's really wise.
Many details we have about this yet but does -- work with every phone is -- just iphones as the jet is that -- just the underwriter.
He's been telling something about violence.
Yeah well I do know some because I do go to the consumer electronic I don't I'm kind of I'm like -- I let me up.
OK I do know there's -- activity with your phones and that it's a cycle -- a power Matt you put that connection in the back your phone it has a collective device.
-- -- -- offering this down the road you're gonna see this.
For cars to be getting -- -- plug in cars and a plug into the wall can be a map -- driver -- a big power Mac so all that's coming down the road that's been announced for 2014.
For a lot of -- about ten.
Of capturing that power and that's going to be like the way of the future you won't have to plug heading into the wall anymore and I as I love that stuff yeah absolutely aren't -- thanks so much.
