Why does the "experience" matter?
For many of us, our car is as much a living space as it is a mode of
transportation. So the time we spend there should be as comfortable and
convenient as possible. As cars become more like digital platforms, the
importance of easy-to-manage integrated solutions between smartphones
and various in-car devices is the key to a better driving experience. So how
do you integrate intuitive control of smartphones and tablets safely into
your vehicle? There are any number of workable solutions and your local
specialty retailer can work with you to find the best solution for you.
What are my options?
Various aftermarket car connectivity technologies allow you to
immediately connect your phone applications through your car controls
such as a touch screen or steering wheel buttons using systems like USB,
Bluetooth™ and Wi-Fi. The technique is called mirroring. It works by
connecting your phone to your in-dash head unit. Once you’ve done that,
you’ve replicated your phone's display on the navigation screen and can
now communicate and control phone calls, music, GPS navigation and
more. What’s more, aftermarket steering wheel control adapters let you
keep the full functionality and convenience of your steering wheel controls.
CarTech Demo Days are a great time for a demonstration.
