MirrorlLink is a consortium so it is bound to suck. If you want anything better than lowest common denominator then MirrorLink isn't going to cut it.

I don't like the placement of the nav screen on the BMW. It looks like an afterthought. BTW, I'm looking for a tasteful way to mount a Samsung Galaxy on my dash. Any suggestions?
