Bluetooth profile

  • 06-Aug-2010 04:25 EDT

Mecel’s Audio Video Remote Control v1.4 (AVRCP1.4) Bluetooth profile is capable of handling mobile phone connectivity services for a "future-proof head unit." Initially designed to allow browsing of audio/video content over Bluetooth, Mecel engineers determined that AVRCP1.4 can be used for several list-based mobile phone connectivity features such as Spotify, Pandora, Internet radio, Facebook, Twitter, online newspapers, traffic information, and other location-based services without the need to create specific software for the head unit. By simply creating a small application in the mobile phone, which transfers the desired connectivity service over AVRCP1.4, OEMs can rely on the application creator for support of new features. Current and coming connectivity services can now be available and functional in all vehicle infotainment systems with AVRCP1.4 support. No software updates are required in the vehicles.
