VF Calais - Wired MirrorLink #2: Integrated into Holden's MyLink Audio system with android &
We've introduced our solution of HD Smartphone Integration, into the iDrive system of E60 exactly a week ago - And now, we introduce our 2nd post of Naviplus's Smartphone Integrated MirrorLink / AirPlay system - was installed on 2015 Holden VF Calais V, right into It's MyLink system.
Featured with Cortex A9 Dual Core CPU that grants fast and solid performance, and connected with intra Wifi granted by Screen Mirroring (android) and AirPlay (iOS).
Meaning that both android and iOS devices are compatible, without any App restriction like CarPlay does.
But the best part is, this all can be done without replacement of audio system - of VF's MyLink Audio.
As the Naviplus's Smartphone Integration system is designed to be retrofitted to an existing audio system of vehicle (pretty much most vehicles from most makers with color audio display), It's more of a built-in type APP that shares display with the Factory radio features.
Not to mention that MyLink system grants full Bluetooth streaming function that whole Mirroring sound can be played through Car speakers whilst sound source is set to bluetooth sound.
Granting sound stream without Aux connection nor FM Transmitter those we normally suggest for those vehicles without bluetooth.
Cut to the chase: Here are some reference but clear idea of how MirrorLink / AirPlay system via MiraPlus works - being displayed on MyLink Display.

As you can tell, the MyLink display of Holden will become a 'Projector' for your smartphone.
Having said that, every action / app you execute via phone, will be displayed on Audio display of the vehicle.
And for the sound streaming, It will be played via Car speakers, using Bluetooth pairing and MyLinks's default Bluetooth source playback - whenever the sound source is on Bluetooth and Mirroring is on - any sound from phone will be played via speakers.
For the main usage of the system, will be of course the GPS Navigation that grants real time traffic by mobile network - which Google Map or Apple Map grants as a default feature from smartphones.
Not to mention that other third party GPS app like TomTom ,Sygic, HERE and Garmin are compatible. - As long as It's installed in the mobile and fully working.
Also, multimedia streaming via apps - Whether It's music / video or something else that your phone can play.
Also whether It's via default media player / Spotify / Poweramp / WinAmp / Youtube etc, will play up without stress*
Again, all these, Naviplus's Smartphone MirrorLink / AirPlay - MiraPlus grants, without changing nor removal of any features / appearance inside of the car, not just Holden but every other vehicle from different makers.
Not to mention Naviplus Team been testing and fitting these in vehicles sold within Australia, granted flawless result.
As mentioned in very first title of this post, the MiraPlus comes with Wired connection, you may think It's not convenient, yet the wired connection is by far the best and most quality and performance granted option.
As It doesn't require additional launcher / App to be installed, It grants far more easier and superior yet simple connectivity to CarPlay / HondaLink / VWLink.
