Pontiac of the Month

Pedja's 1968 Firebird

2019 March
of the Month

  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

However, that bit of robotic helmsmanship wasn't the only trick the German company had up its sleeve. Or, more to the point, on its wrist.<br /><br />Taking a page from rival <a href="http://autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/">Mercedes-Benz</a>, BMW demonstrated how a "smartwatch," in this case the <a href="http://green.autoblog.com/tag/samsung/">Samsung</a> Galaxy Gear, could be made to function usefully with a vehicle, in this case the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/bmw/i3/">BMW i3</a>. Calling it a "research application," BMW showed off its BMW i Remote App on the Galaxy Gear; the app gives information about state of battery charge, available range and whether or not all the doors and windows are closed or open. Perhaps more useful still, the watch can be used to send a destination to the i3's navigation unit, adjust the climate control in preparation for a trip and can recognize voice commands. Nifty stuff, if not world-shaking, that could help tech-obsessed luxury buyers take a second look at the upcoming BMW EV.<br /><br />Take a closer look at the watch in action <a href="/2014/01/12/bmw-samsung-galaxy-gear-smartwatch-ces-2014/#continued">below</a>, or read thru the BMW press release.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/12/bmw-samsung-galaxy-gear-smartwatch-ces-2014/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>BMW and Samsung team up with Galaxy Gear smartwatch that talks to your i3</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/12/bmw-samsung-galaxy-gear-smartwatch-ces-2014/">BMW and Samsung team up with Galaxy Gear smartwatch that talks to your i3</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 12 Jan 2014 13:58:00 EST.
