Getting Started with the Ignite Core SDK
If you are an app developer, the easiest way to work with Ignite Store Services is to use our SDK. All vehicles that are certified to work with Ignite Store Services are integrated with the Ignite Core Client.
What are Ignite Store Services? A variety of features, including identity management, voice, templates, etc, are enabled by this core client
In order to build apps that take advantage of the services, you will need to integrate the Ignite Core Client SDK in to your app. This SDK facilitates communication between your app, other native Ignite components in the vehicle and the Ignite Ecosystem Services cloud.
