HUGHES Telematics Announces Chrysler Group as First Automotive Manufacturer Partner
– HUGHES Telematics, Inc., an automotive telematics solutions company headquartered in Atlanta, has announced the Chrysler Group will be the first automaker to integrate its telematics solution as a standard feature in future vehicles. HUGHES Telematics recently revealed key elements of its technology and service solutions, which range from security, infotainment, and remote diagnostics, to multicasting capabilities.
