Renault drives Android in-car infotainment
Automotive Android is always interesting to me, and this one caught my eye, on TechRadar – Renault R-Link: Everything you need to know
Jeremy Laird tests the in-car tech of Renault Android-based Clio. Check out his look at the latest infotainment system – he considers how R-Link fits into the in-car infotainment landscape, what it is like to use, and how it compares with consumer Android devices such as tablets…
First up, in the new Clio R-Link is presented via a 7-inch touchscreen mounted in what Renault is calling a “tablet”. That’s actually a little misleading.
What we’re really dealing with is a conventional infotainment screen located front and centre in the dash. The binnacle or pod it’s mounted in has a somewhat floating appearance. But it’s entirely fixed and houses various other functions, including ventilation.
