While MirrorLink has reached US shores in models from other manufacturers, Volkswagen is the first to actively market the technology to consumers. The CCC made the announcement at a press event at Volkswagen Group of America's Electronic Research Laboratory (ERL) that featured MirrorLink and other connected-car technologies. MirrorLink is a leader in the industry for car-smartphone connectivity and is designed for maximum interoperability between a wide range of smartphones and cars. MirrorLink is also the only OS- and OEM-agnostic standard for car-smartphone connectivity and the only vendor-neutral standard where no single entity has a controlling stake. MirrorLink thus offers the quickest global route to more responsible and enjoyable connected driving.

"The dashboard is one of the automotive industry's hottest innovation platforms right now," said Alan Ewing, president and executive director of the Car Connectivity Consortium. "For a considerable amount of time, the US market has shown substantial demand for sweeping, interoperable connectivity options that are actually available to use in the here and now - and MirrorLink fits this bill. Volkswagen has already experienced tremendous success with European and Asian MirrorLink model rollouts, so we at the Car Connectivity Consortium are very excited to see what the US market has in store."
