“CarWith” is placed in the “Connect & Share” settings. According to tech site Mydrivers, CarWith allows users to connect their phones to their cars, just like Apple’s CarPlay and Huawei’s HiCar. They are designed to enable their devices to coexist with embedded car systems from many manufacturers. Users can directly manage the navigation, music and calling functions on the car’s centre console by operating the mobile phone through Bluetooth or cable. Carmakers that cooperate with Apple CarPlay include BMW, KIA, Ferrari, Ford, Jaguar, Subaru, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Toyota, Mazda and General Motors etc. Combined with China’s booming electric vehicle industry, it is exciting about the future models that can cooperate with CarWith.

The most important schedule is Xiaomi’s first automobile is slated to roll off the assembly line and reach mass production in 2024.

Xiaomi has joined the smart car business, thus it is believed this feature will be released certainly.
