Mitsubishi has announced the introduction of Mitsubishi Connect – its connected vehicle services program. Mitsubishi Connect provides both safeguard and remote services, that can be accessed inside the vehicle, through the My Mitsubishi Connect mobile app or through the Mitsubishi vehicle owners’ portal. The system is debuting with the 2018 Eclipse Cross.
Mitsubishi Connect uses a subscription-based service comprised of an embedded Telematics Control Unit equipped with a 4G LTE cellular modem and GPS capability that operates on a cellular network. Two in-vehicle buttons connect the vehicle to a call center – one being the SOS Emergency Assistance button and the other an Information/Roadside Assistance button.
The Safeguard services package includes Automatic Collision Notification, SOS Emergency Assistance, Information Assistance, Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Alarm Notification and Mileage Tracker. The Remote services package include Remote Climate Control, Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Remote Horn, Remote Lights, Car Finder, Vehicle Settings, and Parental Controls.
The My Mitsubishi Connect mobile app is available on both Android and Apple devices. Additionally, Mitsubishi Connect can be paired with both Amazon Alexa-enabled devices, and the Google Assistant on eligible Android phones, iPhones and Google Home.
