Our Approach

Universal Media Flow, Inc. is targeting to develop the best infotainment system in your car, the one that is – the best there is, and is perfect. It will be a piece of technology built simple, yet powerful, and the one you will use all the time safely as you drive or commute in any car. We believe that we can do this better than our competitors, and that we have a greater vision of how our solution can mature over the years in the future.


Our Story

Commuting every day to work and using your car infotainment system could be a frustrating and distracting experience on the road. With the constant pop-ups from apps, switching between applications, closing advertisements, following map directions, taking a call, and yet enjoying your personal media, drivers and passengers face this impossible task with the currently available products. The idea for our solution and the company behind it was born out of pain from using traditional applications and infotainment systems currently on the market today, and a strong need for great infotainment experience that is safe, user-friendly and accessible to everyone.
