GLOBAL – People with a car and a smartphone running Nokia Belle will be glad to hear that Nokia Car Mode is now available for download from Nokia Store. This lets you connect your phone to your car’s infotainment system (if you’ve got one) and control your phone through the car, rather than touching the phone itself.
There’s two versions of this piece of software. One is called Nokia Car Mode that offers Nokia’s leading turn-by-turn navigation, as well as the overall smartphone experience into the car environment, while also bringing Nokia Drive, traffic updates, Nokia Music and voice calls while driving.
The other is called Nokia Car Mode with MirrorLink that gives additional MirrorLink support and the seamless connectivity of the smartphone within the car at a cost of £17.99 (€19.99).
Here’s some screenshots from the app on a Nokia 701.

While this is currently available for Nokia Belle phones, support for the Nokia N9 will be added at a later date.
Update: Nokia Car Mode with MirrorLink support is now available for Nokia Belle smartphones and Nokia N9.
If you’ve got a compatible phone and car system, download Nokia Car Mode today and let us know what you think of it.
