We may be in 2017, buying a car today does not yet guarantee to be necessarily at the forefront of technology in terms of mobile systems and it was particularly true in the cockpits of Renault.
The company has just made a nice announcement on this subject at the Geneva International Motor Show: from April, "all of the new Renault models produced with the R-LINK system will be compatible with the best smartphone projection technologies designed by Google and Apple."
Mégane, Scénic and Talisman compatible with Carplay
Concerning the Renault Clio and Renault Captur, they will have to be content with R-LINK 2, an internal solution to the French manufacturer, which allows in particular to connect via Bluetooth to have a remote dashboard with GPS, social networks, apps musical and SMS in particular.
A solution a little less polished than Androi Auto from Google or Carplay from Apple.
This is not the only Renault announcement that will interest techies. The company has announced that vehicles with R-Link will be delivered with a three-year subscription to Tom Tom Live and thanks to a partnership with Orange, the manufacturer will offer on-board WiFi Hotspots, but their price is still unknown.
