Connexion Media Limited (ASX:CXZ), an innovator in the connected car market, has had its miRoamer radio and music service app demonstrated by Volkswagen at their stand at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The application has been demonstrated live in a VW Golf vehicle, as well as in demonstration pods around the stand. The miRoamer application recently became the first application in the world to receive MirrorLink Global Drive certification by the Connected Car Consortium (or CCC).
The Consumer Electronics Show (or CES as it is known in the industry), is considered the world’s largest trade-only show for new technology products and services. In 2015, in excess of 160,000 visitors are expected to attend the show.
New VW vehicles will be fitted with the touch screen MirrorLink system that will integrate with the miRoamer Android app. Already today, MirrorLink is available in a number of new Volkswagen models including the Polo, Passat, Passat Estate, Beetle and Beetle Cabriolet. This list will expand as further models are launched this year across multiple territories including Europe, USA, and China.
miRoamer is also featured on the Volkswagen website highlighting the options available using the MirrorLink system. The MirrorLink-capable infotainment system, delivered with the new Volkswagen models, provides easy-to-use connectivity between smartphones and car infotainment systems with a simple cable connection providing drivers with access to phone applications such as miRoamer using a vehicle’s navigation screen and dashboard buttons.
The miRoamer radio and music service app aggregates global content providers including other aggregators, global AM/FM radio services, a platinum service featuring additional options such as genre-based content and virtual storage of music.
