Peugeot debuts its MirrorLink smartphone mirroring (pictures)
MirrorLink gained traction at the Geneva auto show with a standard implementation in the all-new Peugeot 108 model.
GENEVA -- Peugeot unveiled its tiny 108 model at the Geneva auto show, its first car to use the MirrorLink smartphone mirroring standard from the Connected Car Consortium. Mirroring solutions are particularly good for economy cars, where a buyer would be less inclined to option up an expensive navigation system.
At the Geneva auto show, Peugeot had this kiosk to demonstrate how MirrorLink works in the Peugeot. The head unit and a Samsung smartphone are connected here, with the screen from the phone showing on the head unit.
The main screen shows the three apps available in MirrorLink: navigation, phone, and audio. Although the apps are running on the connected phone, the driver can use the car's touch screen to select each function.
