NPR One for Android Mirror-Link Compatible

1

NPR / National Public RadioThe NPR One for Android app is now compatible with Mirror-Link.


The Car Connectivity Consortium says a download enables that function for participating Android audio apps.

“Compatibility with MirrorLink makes NPR One driver-aware and accessible via large icons that conform to established guidelines in driver distraction. As a car connectivity standard, MirrorLink offers the added benefit of wide-scale handset and vehicle interoperability,” says Joel Sucherman, Senior Director of Digital Products at NPR.

Participants say the enabling download with RockScout is free and open-source, and that MirrorLink can tell if your car is in Park or in Drive (presumably to make the display simple with less distraction if it’s in Drive.)
