Many new cars are equipped with a digital display to control the infotainment system and various features. But since Dacia is an economical brand, it has launched the base model of the latest generation Sandro without a built-in display to keep the price as low as possible.
To compensate, Dacia has developed a system called Media Control that allows drivers to turn their mobile phone into an infotainment system display by installing a dedicated app. The app is customizable and enables the driver to create shortcuts for common features and contacts.
To connect the mobile phone to the car, it is enough to pair it via Bluetooth. After this, the driver must place the mobile phone in its special place on the top of the dashboard.
After pairing, features such as routing, radio, music, phone calls, voice recognition and a trip computer can be managed with a mobile display, and text messages are read aloud to the driver, Dacia said. This feature is currently available for Android and iOS users will have to wait.
In addition, the display of the mobile phone is integrated with the control buttons, which can be used to change the music being played or radio stations, and to adjust the volume; Answering or rejecting another call is noteworthy in this regard.
Dacia says the system is programmed to warn the driver when a cell phone is left in the cab; The application is also equipped with the ability to find the location of the car park and makes drivers feel comfortable about it.
Not to mention that the third generation of Sandro was unveiled last September and due to its more attractive design, use of more technologies and still very competitive price, it has been able to attract the positive opinion of most publications.
