In today’s world, we all want to stay connected no matter where we are. This can be a safety concern, especially when you’re driving. That’s why Hyundai will be introducing the all-new Android Auto platform into select models starting in 2015.
This system allows Hyundai drivers to “project” the apps and services they would use on their phone onto the in-dash display in their car. Drivers will then be able to interact with many features using only their voice, so they don’t have to take their eyes off the road or their hands off the wheel.
“Android Auto’s clean and intuitive interface is a perfect match with Hyundai Motor Group’s interior design approach,” said Paul Choo, director, Silicon Valley Accelerator Lab, in a statement. “The goal is to provide a smarter and safer way to use smartphone technology and convenience in cars. Android Auto helps us reach that goal.”
Android Auto will work seamlessly with Hyundai’s Audio Video Navigation (AVN) system allowing both to coexist at the same time without having to switch between programs. Hyundai hasn’t announced which 2015 models will be the first to get the new system.
