What is MirrorLink?

For many people, their cellphone is the most important object they carry with them and is something they look at repeatedly throughout the day. Driving can become distracting with the urge to check new messages on your phone or to get the latest updates on social media sites. Fortunately, MirrorLink allows you to stay connected when you’re on the road without losing focus while you’re driving.
MirrorLink is a user-friendly system that allows you to connect your smartphone with your car’s infotainment system through a cable. Once connected, you can check your phone through the navigation screen in your vehicle and steering wheel buttons.
Currently 80 percent of automakers and 70 percent of smartphone vendors have been approved by MirrorLink, and it should become even more popular in late 2013/early 2014.
MirrorLink is a safe and legal way to check your phone when you’re on the road. Not only will you not miss a thing when you’re in your vehicle but with MirrorLink, you’ll also be less distracted and will be safer behind the wheel.
