Some applications such as Glympse are finding their way from smart devices to the larger dashboard displays of cars, Nick Wingfield writes. Automakers are cautiously integrating such apps over safety concerns, arguing that the position of in-dash displays is less likely to distract drivers than portable devices. BMW is among the automakers integrating the location-sharing app Glympse as well as Audible, Rhapsody and TuneIn. "We try and curate the experience so it's not distracting," said Philip Johnston, BMW Group product manager.
