VAIS Technology is known for manufacturing ground breaking accessories that deal with in-car media interfaces and navigation systems. The company has released iVIC (in-Vehicle Infotainment Center) which is an Android app that permit users to connect their Android phones directly to their in-car displays.
In many countries it’s illegal to text, make or receive calls while driving. Even if not against law, using a mobile phone while driving may result in fatal accidents. VAIS Technology wants Android users to be able to access their phone functions without fumbling with a touchscreen device. The new app allows users to access almost every app on their Android smartphone.
This app creates an interface with the car’s entertainment system, and lets users’ access apps, media and communication services from the compatible navigation system of the car. Using HDMI output, the iVIC system is able to emulate a compatible Android smartphone’s display, giving access to any app from a car’s navigation system.
Smartphones supporting this technology include the Motorola DROID Bionic, DROID RAZR/MAXX, Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy S III and HTC EVO 4G LTE.
However, it’s a bit annoying to use a less than sufficient touch screen compared to your smartphone. The iVIC kit costs $649 and supportsToyota and Lexus models from 2006 and afterwards.
