2016 Pajero first with Mitsubishi’s in-car smartphone technology

2016 Mitsubishi Pajero

Mitsubishi  Motors newly-developed integrated smartphone infotainment system has arrived on  the 2016 model year Pajero SUV. Mitsubishi’s  Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA) system for both Android AutoTM*1 and Apple CarPlay*2  will be introduced across all Pajero variants and rolled out on future models  in the months ahead.

On sale from 1 September, the  2016 Pajero will also feature Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) radio as standard  across the range and a new Terra Rossa premium paint colour.

SDA allows  users of either Android  smartphones or iPhones to connect to the Pajero’s  seven-inch built-in touch screen using a USB cable.

The  system is designed to allow the driver, either by using the touchscreen, voice  control or steering wheel  controls, to  safely and simply:

  • access navigation and other compatible apps on their       smartphone
  • make and receive phone calls
  • send and receive text messages and
  • listen to or stream music and

The  SDA system also eliminates the need for regular map updates to the car’s  navigation system by retrieving the latest information from the smartphone.
