Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge support the MirrorLink car connectivity standard

It was revealed today that Samsung's Galaxy Note bannersmen, the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 and its innovative peer, the Galaxy Note Edge, both support the MirrorLink standard, which allows them to communicate to the infotaiment system of your MirrorLink-enabled car. The standard is an alternative to the relatively-new Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which allow you to pair your Android or iOS device, respectively, to the dashboard of the car and access some of the most important features and functionalities of your smartphone directly via it in a comfortable and safe way.


MirrorLink is developed by the Car Connectivity Consortium and is already supported by a whole galaxy of car brands (Honda, PSA Peugeot-Citroen, Toyota, Volkswagen, among others), which now produce MirrorLink-enabled vehicles on a regular basis. Interestingly enough, some of the mentioned brands support not only one or two, but three of the car connectivity standards - Honda, for example, will eventually allow you to make use of either MirrorLink, Android Auto, or Apple CarPlay.

Car Connectivity Consortium expects that this newly-announced support will further improve the popularity of the MirrorLink standard and will ensure a safer and more convenient smartphone usage while driving.

Well, that brings the total samsung mirrorlink phone total to 4. Whoopdy sht. Mirrorlink is DOA. Don't get me wrong, I'd love for it to succeed. But after 4+ years and only a few Samsung phones and sony phones and no longer for sale Nokia Symbian phones? That's all you have to show for it? Heck, the SG3 had it but NOT the SG4 or 5. Hows that for support! Even MS demoed it and nothing else after 6+ months.

I believe the s5 will get it in the upcoming android L update, I noticed it in the settings menu on the leaked version.

mirrorlink is hardware based, you can't add it later in software

Wrong sprockkets... not hardware based. Do a little research.

meh, as always one standard will come to rain supreme and probably not the best one either. Like the ISO model. we all use it but its not the best.

I wish MirrorLink success. It's very functional and it's neither Apple's or Google's attempt to tie up the consumer, raise prices and limit choices.

That's the problem, no one wants to push it. Without apple, it is DOA. And if this is true, any phone running L can do android auto. The same can't be said of mirrorlink since it depends on an add on hardware chip to feed it.

What add-on "hardware chip"? What does the "hardware chip" do? I think you might not know what you're talking about here...

The whole Xperia Z series have mirror link and there's no post about it. What's so special about mirror link on note 4?

I would love to rip out the display on my car's head unit and slap a 7" tablet in it's place. Maybe when I've time one day (in my dreams), I might take the easier route to customise a mount to attach a mini tablet / Note 4 right in front of it. It's a little crazy that I can take out the display portion of the head unit (anti-theft measure), but it's not allowed to work without it, not even as a simple amp through aux input.
