new geely mirrors your iphone screen sideways for guaranteed neck injuries

Chinese Geely is offering up smartphone integration in the most Chinese way possible…by just copying the screen, no matter what the screen orientation. Personal injury lawyers: your Chinese golden egg has arrived thanks to tweaked necks as drivers try to swipe up and down on Tinder.

According to CarNewsChina, this is the new Geely Englon Haijing SC7 and it features either the worst Photoshop ever for press photos or the worst smartphone integration on the planet. Or both. Even the home button on the pictured iPhone is on the wrong end.

    The biggest problem with automotive connectivity is that the average age of a smartphone is 3-4x less than the average age of a car. Making the car a fancy touchscreen for a phone is a great idea from that perspective. Heck, with the number of B&B that advocate for used cars, it's the only way to not have to live with Sync 1 for the next 5 years of your life.

      I agree with you, and mcs's version that dooms your post tl;dr. It looks stupid now, but by just copying a phone's screen, leaving app choice, processing and upgrade-ability to the phone, you actually get a working, up-to-date touchscreen in the car. It's an obvious and fantastic idea. If it works. Now Apple has been known to work with car producers about phone integration into cars, Geely's Volvo among them. Which approach are they going for? You may end up paying more for something that's worth less to the second and third ownet of the car.

    Even sideways it still beats the hell out of most factory systems.

    I'm more alarmed that they would consider releasing a car with that dreadful indigo interior lighting...

    And this is the company that owns Volvo. Such a shame.
