SK Telecom (SKT) aims to distribute an official version in 2021 by increasing the level of completion based on user data during its pilot service. "The T-Map Android Auto service is expected to greatly improve the convenience of drivers," said SKT's mobility business head Lee Jong-ho.
T-Map is South Korea's largest mobility platform with around 13 million monthly active users. SKT applied functions that users use most frequently to T-Map Android Auto by analyzing big data. The service supports major T-Map functions and can be easily operated by the display's touchscreen and jog handle.
Android Auto, unveiled in 2015, connects to a smartphone to mirror features such as navigation, music playing and text messaging to a car infotainment system. Once an Android device is paired with the head unit, the system mirrors qualified apps from the device to the vehicle's display, with a simple, driver-friendly user interface.
In July 2018, Google launched the Korean version of Android Auto in South Korea by using a local navigation system due to restrictions on map data provided by the American tech giant.
