“We are excited to be the first to offer our drivers the ability to open or close their garage door directly from their in-dash touchscreen,” said Bryan Arnett, Director of Digital Product Strategy for Mitsubishi Motors Research and Development Americas. “Providing in-dash touchscreen control for the garage enables a more convenient and seamless driving experience. Now, not only will they be able to check to see if they left their garage door open, but they will also be able to close the garage door from anywhere.”
Available through Android Auto™1, Outlander and Eclipse Cross drivers with the My Mitsubishi Connect app and a myQ connected garage door opener, can seamlessly transition garage control to their in-vehicle touchscreen. Before myQ Connected Garage, drivers were limited by the ability to only open and close the garage door when they were within line of sight of the door. Now, myQ Connected Garage eliminates ever having to turn back around to check if the garage door is closed and gives drivers the freedom to easily let the kids, a visitor or the dog walker in while on the road.
“We are excited to partner with Mitsubishi Motors to help enhance the driver experience when it comes to garage control,” said James Trainor, Vice President General Manager of Automotive for Chamberlain Group. “myQ Smart Vehicle Access has allowed Mitsubishi to integrate smart garage control capabilities within the car’s in-dash touchscreen, allowing drivers to stay connected to home and know that their garage is secure.”
