Polestar partnered with Google¹ to create an intuitive, contextualised infotainment system, powered by Android Automotive OS. The system connects the car and the user, making Polestar 3 an integral part of their digital life.
Polestar 3 comes with a truly future-proof software setup. It receives regular over-the-air updates to keep its operating system, apps and car systems as cutting-edge as those of a brand-new car. When a new software version is available, Polestar 3 notifies the driver. Updates can be set to download automatically, or to require manual approval every time.
Polestar 3 provides secure 5G internet to give access to the web, real-time traffic updates, and dedicated in-car versions of popular apps. Although the connection is always active, there’s no need to economise on data, as the first three years of use are included in the car’s purchase price.
Infotainment that goes beyond information and entertainment. Apart from navigation and streaming music, Polestar 3’s centre display allows the driver to access a range of car performance and safety settings through an intuitive interface that delivers a truly connected experience.
No clutter. No overload. The 9” driver display has preconfigured modes that provide the necessary information and nothing else. It can be set to show speed and battery status, navigation, or driver assistance information.
The head-up display projects information directly in the driver’s field of view, without blocking it. It can display navigation directions, speed, warnings and other essential details.
Once a driver’s preferred settings have been entered, Polestar 3 will store and remember them. The car recognises who’s approaching it and instantly loads the relevant driver profile. Seat position, mirror settings, steering feel, and one-pedal drive are all automatically adjusted to the stored settings.It will also cue up favourite apps and playlists.
Google Assistant¹ can help the driver get things done without taking their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel. Just say, “Ok Google” to get started, and control music, climate settings, and more.
Polestar 3’s infotainment system works with a variety of well-known apps optimised for the in-car experience. Paying for parking, journey planning and streaming playlists - all can be done without a smartphone. Additionally, some apps communicate with the car’s systems to elevate the driving experience even further. Updates and new apps can be downloaded on Google Play¹, using Polestar 3’s centre display.
