myQ Connected Garage provides in-dash garage access control through the My Mitsubishi Connect app
Oak Brook, Ill. October 11, 2021 – Mitsubishi Outlander and Eclipse Cross drivers with the My Mitsubishi Connect app and a myQ Connected Garage can now seamlessly transition garage control to their in-vehicle touch screen using Apple CarPlay®. Available in select 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander and select 2018 and newer Eclipse Cross vehicles, Mitsubishi Motors is the first manufacturer to offer the ability to open or close home garage doors directly from a car’s in-dash touchscreen – anytime, from anywhere.
“Mitsubishi drivers expect modern, convenient, connected in-car experiences, and in-dash, touchscreen garage control is one way we deliver on that,” said Cason Grover, Director of Product Planning, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. “Expanding access to this feature, allowing more Mitsubishi drivers the ability to secure their garage doors – whenever, wherever, and regardless of whether they prefer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto – is a win for everyone.”
Chamberlain Group, a global leader in access control solutions with its LiftMaster® and Chamberlain® garage door opener brands and myQ technology, originally launched myQ in 2011 to answer the often-thought question – “did I remember to close the garage door?” Today, millions of homeowners use the myQ app to control, secure and monitor their garage from their smartphone.
“Our myQ customers have been asking for a smarter, safer way to use their phone in the car. By integrating myQ functionality into the My Mitsubishi Connect app, drivers can seamlessly transition garage control to their in-vehicle touch screen using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto,” said James Trainor, Vice President General Manager of Automotive for Chamberlain Group. “Bringing the capabilities of myQ smart garage control into the vehicle’s in-dash touchscreen is a natural extension of our technology that allows drivers to safely open and close their garage door from wherever they are on their journey, without the need to interact with their phone while driving.”
To get started, Mitsubishi drivers can link their myQ account to their My Mitsubishi Connect account through their smartphone. Drivers who do not have a myQ account can select “Purchase myQ Controller,” within the myQ Mitsubishi Connect App, to receive a discounted myQ Smart Garage™ Control hub, when they add the myQ Connected Garage service to their My Mitsubishi Connect app. The myQ Smart Garage Control hub is easy to install and works with all leading brands of garage door openers.
