MirrorLink adds Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge to its list of smartphones that work on its connected car digital platform. The Car Connectivity Consortium(CCC), the organization behind the development of MirrorLink, made the announcement recently saying that these new Samsung models can now be used with its Mirrorlink platform to bring data connection to the car. At present, the consortium's members represents more than 80 percent of the world’s auto market, more than 70 percent of the global smartphone market and major players in the aftermarket consumer electronics vendors.
The MirrorLink platfom allows drivers to access a wide range of features they often use on the phone such as calling and messaging services, navigation and social media on their vehicle's dashboard via the vehicle's digital display. With the addition of Samsung's devices, drivers with these handsets can continue to use them safely and conveniently while driving in cars which are fitted with the Mirrorlink solution, which is already available across many models from auto brands such as Honda, PSA Peugeot-Citroën, Toyota, Skoda and Volkswagen.
In the fast growing connected car market, MirrorLink provides a simple and straightforward data connectivity solution for the car and is the only OS- and OEM-agnostic standard in the segment, said CCC .
