Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
McLoughlin Hyundai is thrilled to announce that Hyundai is working with the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA) to create Android Auto available to all our drivers. This innovative feature allows Android smartphone users to have features directly linked to Hyundai cars through the fourth-generation touchscreen Audio Video Navigation (AVN) system by Hyundai.
Hyundai will release select 2015 Hyundai cars with Android Auto at a later date. The OAA is known as a global alliance of technology and auto industry leaders who are committed to bringing Android to cars starting in 2014, and Hyundai is a founding member of the Open Automotive Alliance.
“The innovative Android Auto creates a convenient driving experience for all Android users. With the use of this new hands-free technology, Android provides a smarter and safer way to access your smartphone on the road,” said Emily Taylor, McLoughlin Hyundai Customer Loyalty Manager. “We hope with the use of this new technology, distracted driving will decrease with all Android users.”
Android Auto allows Hyundai drivers to transmit their phone experience onto their vehicle’s display equipped on the dashboard. Drivers are able to access their apps and services through voice input and easy-to-see controls. Connecting your Android device to use this feature is simple; just connect your phone to a USB port.
Upon connection, users will immediately see basic Android phone applications syncing to their Hyundai vehicle. Access to messaging, phone, Google Play Music and Google Maps is made easy as it clearly displays on the dash. Third party audio applications are also available such as Stitcher Radio for Podcasts, iHeartRadio and NPR.
The AVN system by Hyundai will give users the access and capable interface they need to connect their Hyundai model with Android Auto. Find out more about Android Auto at http://www.openautoalliance.net.
