Another Tesla-Style Screen Debuts
May 25, 2015

The next car maker to employ a Tesla-style over-sized screen to control all car functions is Mitsubishi.

A 12.1 inch touchscreen replaces the entire center console so that nearly every function of the vehicle is controlled by touchscreen plus a 488 x240 heads up display that projects on to the windshield.

The screen is super-flexible as it can switch to ½ screen or 1/3rd screen to display navigation only, or navigation + media player or navigation + media player+ climate controls.

This is an Android car, not Android Auto, but the system is running on a version of Android.

Mitsubishi claims this system is “cost effective.” Called the FLEXConnect.IVI, it claims to require only minimal attention from the driver.

Information can be shared among the 3 different displays in the car (there’s also a 12.3 inch instrument cluster).

Mitsubishi doesn’t state when the new system will ship but 9to5Google speculates it will appear in the 2016 cars appearing later this year.

Hello, I would like to complement Car Tunes for there outstanding and professionalism as a top notch business... I have been dealing with car audio since I was 16 and I am now 40, and I have never been treated with the respect that all the employees starting with the owner Shawn and his wife Darcy, David at the front end, and all the installers that work there asses off in the back to make a system to the way it needs to be... I was working with a stereo company since I was 18, and they just went out of business... I deal with Phoenix Gold product that I am very impressed with and they sent me to Car Tunes... I couldn't have asked for a better company and people to deal with, cause they make you feel right at home and know what they are talking about with there expert knowledge with car audio... I have an intense system with 32 speakers and 9 ten inch subwoofers in a Ford F-150... I have been dealing with them now for two months and wish I new about them when I was 16, being that they have been in the Industry for 32 years... It shows by the way they treat there customers... One thing that really stood out to me and they have taken me in as a lifetime customer was that after doing a add on of 8 speakers and an amplifier under my back seat to get more mids and highs cause of the amount of bass that my truck pushes out, I received a thank you card in the mail thanking me for my business... Now that's how a business is run!!! I in all my years have never received a thank you card for all the $100,000 of thousands of dollars I have spent in these other stereo shops... They have just gained a loyal customer for life, cause the way they run this business, it will be around forever... At least as long as I'm alive!!! I really want to thank them all and I mean everyone that's there even if they aren't working on my truck cause they all greet you with respect!!! Thank you Car Tunes for all you have done for me and my truck in the short two months, cause I guarantee there is no other shop around or even in the U.S. that will treat you the way Car Tunes treats you as a customer.... Thank you again and can't say it enough... Leonidas Rousakis...
