Revealed at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Connected Golf concept provides the scope for a wide range of interfaces via Volkswagen’s second-generation modular infotainment system, which is equipped with an upgraded version of Volkswagen’s Car Net.
Among the highlights is a so-called function called App Connect. In a claimed first within the automotive industry, it supports three differing interfaces: Android Auto, CarPlay and MirrorLink.
This allows occupants with differing mobile phone operating systems, including Android and Apple’s OS, to access apps over the Connected Golf’s infotainment system.
A further function called Media Control can also integrate tablets and smart watches in the infotainment system.
