Full Link - all apps from phone

Post by MBM » Sat Mar 03, 2018 12:58 pm

Have seen a couple of videos where people are mirroring the whole phone to the screen and are able to play movies, TV broadcast etc.
Does this work flawless or is there issues regarding phone-brand, cables etc.
Whats your experience?

I have an iPhone and therefore use the Apple Carplay component of full-link , my comments are therefore only for Carplay and not Mirror link or Android auto.

You need to connect your phone via a lightning cable to one of the usb ports of the car.
You do not get a full mirror image of the phone screen , just those apps that will support Carplay e.g. Apple Maps, the phone dial screen itself, WhatsApp , Spotify etc.

As I say I cannot speak for the other phone technologies but Apple restrict what apps will be supported by Carplay, and most likely they are keeping it to apps that will not distract a driver too much, so its digital radio stations, music services etc. I cannot ever seeing them allowing drivers to play video though it .e.g. YouTube , maybe I'm wrong though !

I think that there is potentially too much driver distraction with some of the apps available and the car being fitted with the ability for the driver to be able to watch video while driving is actually illegal in the U.K.

Maybe it is phone specific.
Saw it with using a Samsung galaxy.

There is an app for android called Floating Apps for Auto which is one of the ways in which full mirroring of sorts is possible
