Key trends and announcements at the Frankfurt Motor Show ’09

SBD, a leading telematics consultancy in Europe, will soon be publishing a photo-rich report highlighting the key trends and announcements at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

This report will not just summarise the new product and service launches, but more importantly, will identify the key trends in the different areas of Telematics, Navigation, Connectivity, Entertainment and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems).
