GM Offers In-Vehicle App Testing to Developers

After the developer has built an application's proof of concept with the kit, the next development step is to conduct real-world testing using a GM vehicle's infotainment system. GM Dev Client allows partners and developers the ability to test their apps in a GM vehicle once they have obtained approval from GM.

General Motors announced July 21 it has launched GM Dev Client, an industry-first app that gives approved developers who have created in-vehicle applications the ability to test them in a real GM vehicle, with the company saying in-vehicle app testing "is the next step for app developers who have already created a proof of concept using GM's next-generation infotainment software development kit."

"By introducing GM Dev Client, we're giving developers the missing link they need to finalize their applications," said John McFarland, the company's director of Global Digital Experience. "GM Dev Client will help us and external developers make sure the best in-vehicle apps are ultimately made available in GM vehicles, ensuring the best customer experience for drivers."

After the developer has built an application's proof of concept with the kit, the next development step is to conduct real-world testing using a GM vehicle's infotainment system. GM Dev Client allows partners and developers the ability to test their apps in a GM vehicle once they have obtained approval from GM. The company released the kit in January 2017; it mimics real vehicle data and enables developers outside GM to build apps without making frequent trips to Detroit to conduct testing on infotainment modules. With GM Dev Client, those apps now can be tested on a real GM vehicle anywhere in the United States.
