The smart phone is able to control the temperature, the vehicle’s playlist and even allows the driver to see what activity is going on behind the car, thanks to the car using a camera at the rear of the vehicle. It is essential that the sound system is controlled by a smart phone as it helps deliver a better and more fulfilling cinematic experience.
