Huawei HiCar Application
Huawei HiCar can be linked to the car, mobile phone, and watch. You can enjoy the applications (such as music, navigation, etc.) from the mobile phone on the screen of the car. You can also use the car camera to share scenery videos along the way with your family. Furthermore, with Huawei HiCar, you can check the status of the car in real-time from the mobile phone. It also takes control of the car air conditioners, windows, wipers, and even the locks. Actually, only you will have control of your car from your smartphone. When the phone and car link together, the central control screen on the car will display the card options. This includes schedule reminders, destination navigation, music playback, answering calls, and voice assistant functions.
In addition, the HiCar can also advise on the fatigue condition of the driver. Moreover, EMUI 10 also features GPU Turbo, Link Turbo, Super File System (EROFS), and Ark Compiler. Do you think this feature will make any difference in car operability? Let us know your thoughts.
