VNC Automotive will also be showcasing its MirrorLink Certified™ solution, VNC Automotive™. This technology has the ability to pair your vehicle with your mobile device, enabling your mobile phone to perform a number of functions within the car. Using this solution, you are able to stream multiple videos from your handset and view them on the rear seat entertainment systems. There is also the option to connect several devices to the vehicle at once whilst utilising various apps and content from each handset. In addition to these features, whilst videos and media applications are running, the driver is able to launch navigation maps without disrupting the passenger’s viewing, creating the ultimate user experience.

In an industry where driver safety is of the upmost importance, VNC Automotive technology allows the mobile device to be controlled from the car dashboard, vehicle bezel keys, or steering wheel switches. There is also a screen blanking option available for any applications which are deemed too distracting to be used whilst on the move.
