I've been wondering if it would be possible to hack together a cheap GENIVI compliant system using some using BeagleBone Black as the core computer. You might end up with wires all around your car but that's what car tinkering is all about right?
Here are some thoughts on the parts:
This still needs a solution for GSM/GPRS and GPS. There's a project to make a BeagleBone cape for GSM and GPS at exploitsys but it's not available yet. But maybe that's another $40-60? Looking at $200 out the door.
Am I missing anything else?

The two reference implementations for GENIVI are currently Tizen and Yocto.
It looks like Tizen requires a GPU for 3D rendering so it is probably out of the question. I have not investigated what Yocto needs to operate.

There is a Videocore graphics processor on the RaspPi that could handle 3D rendering. This is the big advantage over the BeagleBone that the RaspPi has.

It looks like Abalta's IVI system can be powered by a Raspberry Pi:
