Smart Device: How to Drive a Car With Your Phone
For a long time, manufacturers of multimedia systems for cars have lived in the desert and have not heard anything about smart device - smartphones, tablets and computers.
How else to explain the fact that all the major companies producing "infotainment" devices, has long been not recognize anything other than DVD and Bluetooth, suddenly, one after another began to issue important products, somehow compatible with smart phones?
It would seem that the idea behind smartphones (constant communication, the Internet and a host of applications for all occasions), ideal for car receivers. But that thought was not been applied by anyone or any manufacturers, literally, until recently.
The first was made by Pioneer. AppRadio device was brilliantly concise and revolutionary low-cost, considering that the flagship media systems for cars will never cost less than $1,000. AppRadio SPH-DA01 use the iPhone as the "brain" and infuriated with his picture on the screen. There was no optical drive or even Bluetooth - only the radio and amplifier. Everything else was to provide iPhone. Should have, but did not provide. It turned out that the applications that can work with the AppRadio, too little, and drive at the same time it will not insert.
Therefore, the latest version of the AppRadio - SPH-DA210 - not only has the drive and Bluetooth, but also works with iPhone, Android and any smartphone that supports the standard MirrorLink - from old models to the latest Nokia and Sony. And also understands voice commands (Siri and Google Voice), supports Internet radio and allows you to choose between six different types of navigation. There is also a model with no optical drive - SPH-DA110, for those who have long been parted with his collection of CDs.
Laconic seven-inch multi-touch display without multi-colored Christmas illuminations are still there: simple, smart and looking much more expensive than it actually is. Add to that a good sound output to the amplifier, connect the rear view camera and an external microphone included - and a better system for the car can not even dream. If not ...
I flagman Sony XAV-701BT and JVC KW-NSX700EE, and App Alpine ICS-X8 Link - Now they are all in the Inoj or different degrees Connect smartphone. The story these latest models rabotaut as with Android (via MirrorLink or AppMode) and Nokia (models, compatible with MirrorLink), Tak and the iPhone, and JVC EVEN Berets Cooperate with the BlackBerry.
But it turns out not all and not at all. Someone retarding someone hangs, but it's growing pains are treated with the new firmware and enthusiastically volunteer testers from among those who have purchased the latest devices. Therefore, if you want a perfect job, and is compatible with all smart phones, you'll have to wait a little longer. Manufacturers of car audio just came to light, let them get used to it.
What is MirrorLink
This is the most advanced standard for interoperability Mobile Media and smartphones, developed by a consortium of CCC (Car Connectivity Consortium). The idea of the standard is to ensure that all car can be connected to any smartphone, display information from them and manage smart phones with touch screen. To do this, develop special applications that allow devices to connect by any means using standard protocols - both on cable and wirelessly. In the nearest plans of the consortium - the creation of a universal opportunity to combine into a single device via a wireless network Wi-Fi, which will constantly work in a car.
Options AppRadio Mode
The standard was proposed by Pioneer AppRadio and includes management, an image with the iPhone and smartphones Android, supporting output HDMI / MHL. Among the applications that are compatible with AppRadio, - Google Maps, Apple Maps, "Navitel Navigator", iGO primo, navigator, WAZE, Dash Command (displays diagnostic information about the car in real time - torque, horsepower, and other parameters of the engine) , Calendar, Contacts, Photos, CarBrowser and Maxthon (web browsers), gMusic, Carmedia Player, EC Touch and many others.
This standard is used in devices JVC / Kenwood, Alpine and other manufacturers. Some applications will only display information on the screen is "infotainment" systems, and some are controlled from the screen. From the navigation software currently supports only WAZE and MotionX GPS Drive. But here a wide range of Internet radio, augmented reality applications, radar detectors and video recorders.
