MirrorLink: Control Android Phone on Your Car Safely

-- Wednesday, May 18, 2016
"Using cell phone while driving is at least a contributing factor to more than one-in-four car accidents across the country." A recent study from the National Safety Council found that 26 percent of all car accidents were caused by a driver using a cell phone. Extremely horrible, right? However, many drivers still do the dangerous thing as they trust to luck. If you want to control Android phone on your car safely, for example, control navigation, music and more, MirrorLink can help.

Play with Android

MirrorLink is designed for drivers to control their Android phone when driving. Once you connect to MirrorLink-enabled smartphone to any MirrorLink-enabled vehicle, you can see Android apps on the dashboard display. And you can hear the audio via the car's speakers. Here's how.
