RealVNC will be demonstrating its latest phone-centric car connectivity solutions at Telematics Detroit from 5-6th June.

VNC® Automotive, a MirrorLink™ Certified product, gives drivers and passengers access to smartphone content controlled directly from the vehicle infotainment touch screen, bezel keys and steering wheel switches or by voice command.   Demonstrations will include displaying content, such as navigation, music and internet radio, for the driver in the front of the car, whilst simultaneous streaming content such as videos and games to rear seat entertainment screens. 

As well as being MirrorLink Certified by the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC), VNC Automotive supports over 100 handsets, covering Symbian, Windows Mobile, Blackberry and Android devices along with Apple’s iPod Out that allows an iPhone or iPod touch to output and display the iPod video interface on the head unit screen. In addition to mobile-to-vehicle connectivity, VNC Automotive supports cloud connectivity enabling the driver to access remote services and enable automotive OEM and dealer networks to interrogate vehicle systems and provide help to drivers.  

“Over recent years, the Telematics Update Conferences have showcased the development of the connected car along with the growing global adoption of MirrorLink and the on-going success of our VNC Automotive solution,” said Tom Blackie, Vice President Mobile at RealVNC. “2013 looks set to be another exciting one with high volume VNC Automotive production programs from some of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, Tier 1 suppliers and mobile phone vendors.  With MirrorLink™ certified products for all major operating systems, our technology is underpinning most of the commercial MirrorLink Certified products.”
