Connexion Media Limited (ASX:CXZ), an innovator in the connected car market, will see its miRoamer radio and music service app available in various Volkswagen models. The vehicles will be fitted with the touch screen MirrorLink system that will integrate with the miRoamer Android app.

This list will expand as further models are launched in the new year. miRoamer will also feature on the Volkswagen website highlighting the options available using the MirrorLink system.
Volkswagen marks the first production release of vehicles comprising the miRoamer radio and music service. “Volkswagen is a brand renowned for high quality vehicle production and we are pleased to be a part of that moving forward,” said Connexion Media CEO and managing director George Parthimos. “This relationship will help with our objective of rapid worldwide miRoamer invehicle audience growth.”
