Frustrated your car isn’t friendly to your smartphone? Well, car manufacturers and electronics companies are working hard to create a common format for smartphone compatibility. Autocar.co.uk reports that large manufacturers like GM, Daimler, Honda, Toyota, VW and Hyundai are working hand-in hand with companies like Nokia, Samsung and LG to get this done.
The big picture here is to make accessing texts and other features - like music and GPS - easier, while increasing safety. A touchscreen that displays your smartphone’s user interface should definitely make things easier when it comes to navigating through the system. Drivers will be able to connect their phones to the car through USB ports, as well as through Bluetooth and WLAN. Wireless re-charging is also likely to be included.
