Automotive Supplier Introduces In-Vehicle 4G LTE Connectivity

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) will showcase its latest in-vehicle connectivity solutions and discuss the auto-mobility revolution June 4-5 at Telematics Detroit 2014 in Novi, Michigan. Attendees can experience the latest advancements at Visteon's booth (#27) and hear from technology experts, including Global Director of Innovation and Design Tim Yerdon. Yerdon will join executives from Ford, General Motors, Kia and Panasonic Automotive on this year's Telematics Detroit Super Panel.

A highlight of Visteon's display is a demonstration vehicle equipped with a 4G LTE Telematics System with Wi-FiŽ Hotspot. This global product reduces manufacturing complexity because it is built on a single hardware architecture that supports regional requirements through unique modem implementations. Developed in partnership with Autonet Mobile, the system incorporates not only a telematics control unit (TCU), but OS software, apps and cloud services for a complete end-to-end solution.

"Our panel participation and products showcased at Telematics Detroit demonstrate our commitment to advancing vehicle connectivity," said Martin T. Thall, president, Visteon Electronics. "We're showing leading-edge solutions available today that keep vehicle owners connected to their evolving digital lifestyle."

Visteon's Telematics System provides infotainment services for all vehicle occupants to access local and cloud content through the Wi-Fi hotspot or 4G LTE network. Premium telematics services connect the vehicle to mobile devices and the Internet of Things to enable remote diagnostics, remote commands (vehicle start, door lock/unlock, etc.) and concierge apps (Find My Car, Parental Controls, etc.).

Also on display are Visteon's OpenAir™ infotainment products that are based on open architecture, human-machine interaction (HMI) command and controls, and off-board wireless data connections:

    --  OpenAir I1.1 platform - This GENIVI Compliant™ product uses the Linux
        operating system to deliver flexible in-vehicle connectivity and
        advanced entertainment solutions.
    --  OpenAir I1.2 platform -  Features virtualization technology to deliver
        social and driving apps like Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo News, Yelp, Google
        Maps, Best Parking and several others.

Visteon thought leaders will be addressing the latest telematics trends and challenges facing the automotive industry during several panel discussions.

    --  Tim Yerdon, global director, innovation and design, participates on the
        Telematics Detroit Super Panel from 9:25-10:10 a.m. June 4.
    --  Rob Cadena, infotainment manager and technical fellow, joins the panel,
        "GENIVI: Connected Car - Big Opportunity or Headache?" from 2:15-2:45
        p.m. June 4.

Telematics Detroit is considered the world's largest forum dedicated to the future of connected auto mobility.
