The word "infotainment" is a portmanteau of "information" and "entertainment." Infotainment systems get their name from the combination of traditional entertainment features like stereos and satellite radio services with new technologies like GPS navigation and smartphone support. Most modern systems have a touchscreen mounted in the center console that give you access to a host of features using an interface similar your smartphone.
