One very important item is still missing from almost each appearance of automotive computing. Especially in the field of car entertainment configurations, often the available head-unit is used only for the tuner facility and it's amplifiers.

The latter feature, the amplifier, is not a complicated item to get rid of as a large selection of automotive amplifiers can be found in any decent car-hifi shop.

This other feature, the tuner, is a lot harder to replace. Only very few computer based tuners are available and most of those don't offer the AM band reception nor do they offer RDS decoding. For a lot of people AM can still be important because quite a few radio stations are not eglible for an FM band frequency.

A good implementation of the Radio Data System (RDS) is even more favorable. Using the Traffic Announcement (TA) feature of RDS enables automatic interruption of the MP3 or CD/DVD player function of the computer and switch to traffic announcements when those are broadcast.
