Sony's New Head Unit Does Phone / App Control Via MirrorLink
If you've got a MirrorLink-capable phone, you can access its media collection and compatible apps right on the unit's display -- all while the phone charges over USB. Directions and navigation can be handled from the phone as well. Nokia's 701, 700, 603, N8, E7, C7, X7, and C6-01 are all supported up front, and more phones should be coming courtesy of firmware updates. Riding shotgun? No sweat. Passenger App Control allows your passenger view videos and interact with apps from their connected iPhone and iPod Touch on the head unit’s touchscreen. The unit is slated to hit retailers in June (that's this month, you know!), but pricing is still under wraps.
