JAPAN: Mitsubishi launching smartphone link infotainment

Mitsubishi Motors will roll out a newly-developed integrated smartphone infotainment system in coming months.

Mitsubishi Motors will roll out a newly-developed integrated smartphone infotainment system in coming months.

The ‘Smartphone Link Display Audio’ (SDA) system for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will be available on the updated 2016 Pajero SUV later this year.

SDA allows users of either smartphone type to connect to the dashboard display using a USB cable. The system is designed to allow the driver, either by using the touchscreen or by voice control, to access navigation and other apps on the smartphone,make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages and listen to music.

The navigation system can also access the latest map information from the smartphone, removing the need for conventional system updates.

Android Auto automatically sources information and organises it into simple cards that appear when needed. Google Maps offers free voice guided navigation, live traffic information and lane guidance.

Users can access and stream over 30m songs plus customised playlists with Google Play Music.
