Last month HTC released a little app into the Play Store that provides one way for its devices to connect to other electronics in the home. Today it's uploading one that's all about hooking up to cars. HTC MirrorLink is the manufacturer's app for letting its phones connect to vehicles using, you guessed it, MirrorLink.
When you connect your HTC phone to a MirrorLink-enabled infotainment system using a cord, you will be able to navigate the device using your car's dashboard buttons. The phone will use HTC's car-friendly interface, which organizes the apps you're likely to use while driving into a grid.
This release doesn't expand the app to more devices, nor does it add anything new for those that already have it. Play Store availability simply lays the groundwork for easier updates in the future. For now, there's nothing else to see here.
