Launched back in June last month, ACO Tech’s ATLAS (ACO Tech Local Automotive Services) infotainment system is now available on the Proton X50. It is the first Proton model to receive the new system, and the B-segment SUV will get it via over-the-air (OTA) update.
Touted as an infotainment system made by Malaysians for Malaysians, ATLAS will be offered on a slew of Proton models. Aside from the X50, the facelifted Iriz, Persona, and the new 2022 Proton X70 will also get ATLAS sometime in the future.
Spotify is said to be added to the infotainment system sometime this quarter as well, so it should be available by September 2022.
Based on Android 10, ATLAS has a distinctively different – and more practical – user interface than Proton’s GKUI system. It has customisable widgets on the home screen, offline navigation, and even voice command features that can differentiate between the driver’s and front passenger’s voices.
According to ACO Tech, it may take up to 14 days for all units of the Proton X50 to receive the OTA update for ATLAS. So if your X50 haven’t received the new update yet, don’t worry: the SUV will get the new infotainment system in due time.
