Nokia Maps 3.09 - What is Nokia Car Mode?

Nokia Car Mode is an application to make it easier to access selected functions of your phone in the car during driving. Car Mode minimizes driver distraction by bringing most relevant functions easily accessible. For driver’s convenience device lock is disabled and screen is always lit in order to provide instant access.

The following functions are available via the Car Mode screen:

  • Call
  • Drive (navigation)
  • Music

In addition, sound notifications and audio output of SMS messages and calendar events is available in Car Mode.

Nokia Car Mode is designed to be used as a standalone application in the phone or with MirrorLink compliant car units. MirrorLink (formerly known as Terminal Mode) is a technology specification proposed as an industry standard for the integration of mobile applications into the car environment.

Nokia Car Mode application can be downloaded from Nokia Store for the compatible phones (Nokia Belle phones).
