Update 5/5/12
Drivelink has been successfully modified and supports full mirroring!!

All donations are to be sent to the winning dev AuRoN89 via his PayPal address at:
Sfdrago@libero.it

Also please include your confirmation number so that op maybe be updated and your name crossed from the list!!

For anyone that had a special request such as support for other phones/os, if your phone is still not supported by the modified apk it is your right to hold out on your donation until your request can be reached.

Modified app can be found here:
http://www.colmoschinxtreme.com/android
Which will also be updated with changelog, comp car units etc

Full screen mirrorlink is now supported in the latest Sony firmware. It is recommended to use this app "button savior" (no root required) https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...om.smart.swkey
To create virtual buttons much like a nexus device to make navigating possible while in full screen mode.

Thank you very much AuRoN89 as well as every other dev that took a stab at this project your hard work is very much appreciated!!!

Update: here is a link to the newest drivelink apk file. Please modify app so that full mirroring of phone is possible onto the indash display along with touch input from display panel.

Hello,
I bought a new indash for my truck the Sony xav-601bt and it supports mirrorlink technology for gs3. Pretty much the unit becomes an extension of your phone all the way down to playing angry birds on it if you wanted to. However I cannot connect it and after searching and speaking to numerous Sony tech supports that had no freakin clue of what to do I found that Samsung neeeds to release the app for it to be compatible. If anyone has it or runs into it I would appreciate it if you posted it here. Its supposed to be released on 8/29 from a rumor I read. It goes by the name Samsung drive-link I believe. Any help is much appreciated

I have the same problem - I installed a xav601-bt in my car wanting to use mirror link. Google maps is so much better than the $2000 nav unit in our brand new Honda Odyssey ... but I digress. I saw that Sony-asia has released a firmware update for the unit. Took my chances and installed it (NOTE THIS: had to take off the faceplate and press reset to get it out of the reboot loop) installed fine but neither the "mirror link" nor "telenav" app work. Properly. USB device not recognized. I understand I need an app for the phone. Mirror link or drive link. This will be perfect if they get it to work - I want my Google nav to display on my head unit. Controlling it would be bonus. C'mon Samsung, get it going!

One nice thing I did find though if you pair your phone with bluetooth then click on Bluetooth settings for sony automotive you can enable not only calls but audio and that way you can still listen to everything that goes on in your phone such as spoken turn by turn navigation, music, YouTube, Netflix,etc. Still can't wait for official rollout though. I wonder how they will get around the "USB device not supported" error message when plugging in via USB

Sony America released the firmware update on Aug 14th. (My birthday!) so you don't need chance the Sony Asia update anymore.

Can't wait for the app from Samsung to drop so it will finally work.

I have a Galaxy S2, and just bought a XAV-701BT. The guy at the store said that I would be able to use mirror link with my GS2 when the app was released at the end of this month, but from what I am reading it looks like it will only work on the GS3.

Does anyone know if I will be able to use mirror link on the GS2?

I have already installed the new firmare on the XAV-701BT

If anything i'm sure the APK will be floating around the web somewhere.

Thanks. Sounds like I will have to go and have a few polite words with the guys at the store for not knowing what he was talking about

I found this video on YouTube of someone running mirrorlink on a galaxy s2 and when they ran it, this app called tmserverapp seemed to run. I found the apk file I will try and play with it later anyways here's the video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsT1l...e_gdata_player
Here's the apk file needed at http://d-h.st/GrA
I think it needs to be moved into the /system/app folder and set the permissions to rw-r-r
