Volvo introduces new touchscreen rear-seat entertainment system on the 2010 XC90

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

Volvo showcased its new touchscreen rear-seat entertainment system at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. For now, this system is expected to debut in the 2010 XC90 SUV this June, but depending on the customer's response to it, it just might find its way into other models.

Jack Lawson, product manager at Volvo, said that the fully integrated Multimedia RSE sets a new standard for the Rear Seat Entertainment industry.

The system, named the RSEi-500, enables customers to surf the Internet, and watch Mobile TV and watch videos.

It also has the industry's first interactive audio library and video exploration experience enabled by Gracenote and its partners.

Lawson added that the system is certain to appeal to the discerning electronics buyers and owners of Volvo vehicles. He clarifies that there's more to the system than its audio/video playback function.

Being armed with a broadband Internet connection means that passengers can surf the Web, check email, download music and automatically track down songs being played on the satellite radio to download.

Since it has auxiliary inputs, it will let users connect their MP3 players, game consoles, and other devices. A USB port allows one to upload music and video to the onboard 500-gigabyte hard drive.
