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.
