iv got a M8 and i am looking at getting a sony Sony XAV-712BT head unit for my car , the Sony XAV-712BT is a mirrorlink unit and i am looking at this unit to be able to connect my phone via mirrorlink and use the google maps from my phone on my headunit,
can any one here tell me if the M8 is a mirrorlink approved device, every list iv looked at says that the only android phone is the S3 and the S4mini but i have seen this you tube vid ( search youtube for, HTC 2014 ONE M8 Mirrorlink with Sony XAV 701 Car Audio ) that shows a M8 connected to the unit down from the one im looking at buying,
i have also read this review by madco.com which hints to say that the one m8 does have mirrorlink
he says about 3/4s the way down.
"HTC Car is present as always, with big, easy to use buttons for navigation, dialer, music and voice control. I have to say that i’ve never really used the car app very much and i’ve never really felt it necessary, up until recently. I’ve seen the future… and it’s awesome. It’s called ‘MirrorLink’.
MirrorLink is a technology (run by an independent consortium) which is looking to bring enhanced device integration to cars. The premise is that you’ll plug your phone into a USB port in your car (or, in MirrorLink 1.1, connect via WiFi Direct) and your car stereo’s screen will replicate your phone screen. Touches on your car’s infotainment screen will be replicated on your phone. HTC had a demo of the functionality in a Golf GTI on their stand at MWC and it looks fantastic. This is how I want phone integration in my car, I don’t want any OS in the car itself (*cough* iOS in the car *cough*) and the M8 supports it. Now, if only I can get support on the stereo in my car…"
but when i look at every other review or the specs listed anywhere it dosnt say that it does support mirrorlink
can anyone confirm if the M8 works with mirrorlink headunits units?
