Since Carsifi is a dongle that connects directly to the dashboard, there is no lag between the phone and the entertainment system. Moreover, drivers no longer have to use their phones if they wish to take advantage of the above-mentioned functionalities.
Company founder Ihor Martsekha notes that hands-free use of Android Auto lessens distracted driving. “Not only does Carsifi create a more convenient driving experience, but it also fosters safety on the road,” he says. “Instead of tapping on the phone, motorists can instead use voice commands to launch apps from their entertainment system — something they would not be able to do without our wireless adapter.”
Distracted driving accounts for 12% of all car accidents in the country, according to the National Traffic Safety Administration (NTSA). Tellingly, research shows that U.S. drivers spend 90 seconds per hour using their phones, highlighting the ubiquity of such devices.
To use Carsifi, drivers simply need to plug the device into their entertainment system’s USB port. Afterward, they should pair their phone with the dongle via Bluetooth connection. Martsekha highlights that motorists only have to go through this process once; Carsifi will automatically detect and pair with the smartphone moving forward.
In addition, Carsifi can also be paired with multiple smartphones. This feature is especially useful for families who share the same car since they don’t have to reconfigure the connection each time they drive. As stated above, users simply need to pair their phones once and the dongle will store their profile.
Martsekha adds that the wireless adapter can be used with any car that has a modern LED-screen entertainment system. Moreover, Carsifi works with Android 9 straight out of the box. If a driver currently uses Android 8 and below, there is a companion app that facilitates pairing.
