JVC Kenwood To Use Simplified Smartphone Mirroring System


JVC Kenwood has announced that they are partnering with VNC Automotive to provide full smartphone and mobile device mirroring solutions for vehicle manufacturers as well as the aftermarket.

The partnership will integrate VNC Automotive’s Cobalt Link+ technology for an unspecified Japanese vehicle manufacturer for the Southeast Asian market. This system will replace the manufacturer’s legacy system with others expected to follow soon.

Cobalt Link+ provides a single interface for device detection and management of multiple devices and protocols running simultaneously. The modular architecture of the system means it’s easy to choose the functionality needed and simply integration. The protocol accepts Apple CarPlay, Android Auto as well as Baidu CarLife, MirrorLink, and SmartDeviceLink.

According to VNC Automotive, rapid proof of concept and full market-ready integration was achieved in less than three weeks, with a VNC Automotive engineer working at the JVC Kenwood facility and closely with its own team in Japan.

Having collaborated on an end-to-end development project, including a rigorous in-house testing program, the partnership will continue the commercialization. Drawing on its more than 10 years’ experience working within the passenger car market, VNC Automotive is providing a package of ongoing support that will ensure JVC Kenwood’s product remains up to date through software and app development.
