After Apple’s CarPlay system launch last year, Google fought back with its Android Auto product suite, and now ahead of CES 2018 users can brace themselves for wireless connectivity.
According to CNET automobile ‘infotainment specialist’, JVC Kenwood, will be unveiling several wireless Android Auto units at CES this year.
Android Auto allows users to interact with their phone in the same way they would a car’s controls, thereby removing the need to illegally handle their phone whilst driving.
The products work as an interface for Android smartphones, via a connection to an automobile’s infotainment unit.
Thus far, Android Auto has depended on a cable connection, and in the age of wireless charging and Bluetooth connections, JVC’s integration of wireless car tech is a welcome innovation.
