MirrorLink Finds New Supporters, Now 50 Members in Consortium
The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC), the organization driving the MirrorLink standard that connects smartphone with dashboards, announced this week at the CTIA trade show in New Orleans it has surpassed the 50 member mark.

These members are currently representing 70 percent of automotive and 70 percent of smartphone markets worldwide with the recent addition of BMW, Fiat, KDDI, Renault, JVC Kenwood, Fujitsu, HARMAN, and Pioneer.

The Samsung Galaxy S3, that was unveiled last week in London, will be shipping with MirrorLin(see video below).

Nevertheless, Apple is still missing among the partners, the last missing “link“ to make MirrorLink a widely accepted standard.

Another element is also going to be crucial to make MirrorLink a success: the willingness of app developers to spend time and resources developing compatible apps and getting them certified.
