SEAT HAS taken another step further in car connectivity after becoming the first brand in the European industry to feature an app that is compatible with Android Auto. The Android-developed SEAT DriveApp is now available in the Google Play Store and allows drivers to view and manage the content of the App installed in an Android device on the screen of the car.
With the SEAT DriveApp for Apple CarPlay and SEAT DriveApp for MirrorLink, which were already available in the App Store and Google Play Store, drivers can access full vehicle status data, in-car and remotely, to facilitate their driving experience. In this sense, indications include vehicle status such as tyre pressure or fuel consumption. The App will be updated in the next few weeks with even more features and services.
The SEAT DriveApp has been wholly developed at the SEAT Technical Centre, which is the technological driving force of the company that is fostering connectivity at SEAT. The brand aims to lead the creation of a mobility ecosystem providing easy mobility services to its customers.
SEAT already offers FullLink technology which is compatible with iOS and Android devices on the brand’s complete model line-up. Connectivity on SEAT models is enormously beneficial to drivers as it enables them to know the status of their vehicle wherever they are and remain connected to social media while driving in a completely secure manner.
SEAT was the first company to launch Smartphone Integration technology that is compatible with iOS (CarPlay), Android (Android Auto) and MirrorLink, and for the past two years has participated at the Barcelona Mobile World Congress. At the same time, the company has signed agreements with partners such as Travipay or SABA that enable it to be much more agile when creating mobility solutions that keep pace with the consumer electronics market.
