Why the mobile phone meshing forum exists
Based on our experiences at CES this year MP3car is creating this new forum. “Mobile phone meshing – Safely Connect your car to the internet cloud”
This forum is going to be a lot more than just connecting. This is going to be the place to talk about hacking and meshing your mobile computing devices into the car. If we can find a way to connect Iphones and smart phones into existing in vehicle displays and controls, this will be a wonderful benefit for those of us who just want to carry one device and developers trying to prove out connected car concepts.
Same of the challenges we need to work on:
- Phone user interface retooling and modifications for the driver
- Connecting your smart phone to the car
- Connecting accessories to the above (hard drives, flash memory, GPS, engine diagnostics, tracking)
- Mirroring your built in phone display with the display in the car
We have also created a specific iphone section to talk about some of the early progress already being made to mirror the video content of the iphone with external displays - an excellent start to phone phone car meshing.
