Chamberlain Group and Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) announced myQ® Connected Garage is now part of the My Mitsubishi Connect platform of innovative services. myQ, a dynamic technology platform developed by Chamberlain Group that enables seamless smart access control, provides automakers like Mitsubishi Motors with the ability to integrate Smart Vehicle Access within their own connected service platform so drivers can safely open and close their garage door through convenient in-dash touchscreen control.
The technology will debut on the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, the brand’s sporty design and technology-forward compact SUV. A new 8-inch smartphone-link display audio (SDA) system comes standard on the Eclipse Cross, giving the driver better access to and control of features available through the My Mitsubishi Connect app, including myQ Connected Garage. The technology will also be available to 2018-2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross owners, through the My Mitsubishi Connect app.
From the grocery store to cross-country road trips, no matter where you go, with myQ Connected Garage you can keep your focus on the road and safely open and close your garage door with convenient in-dash touchscreen control. Available through Android Auto™, 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. Additional in-dash garage control features will become available later in the year through both Android Auto™ and the addition of Apple CarPlay®.
A myQ connected garage allows homeowners to secure, monitor and control the garage door from a smartphone through the myQ app or from the in-dash display of a vehicle through the My Mitsubishi Connect app using Android Auto™. To get in-dash garage control, simply go to your My Mitsubishi Connect app and on the “Services” page, select “myQ Connected Garage.” Here you will be able to see if you have a myQ smart garage door opener. If you do not have one, you can select “Add a Hub” within the app to purchase a myQ Smart Garage™ Hub, a quick and easy way to add myQ to an existing garage door opener.
The integration of myQ Connected Garage and the My Mitsubishi Connect app is made possible by the Aeris Mobility Suite (AMS), an end-to-end connected vehicle software suite purpose-built to help automotive OEMs win in a connected world. AMS enables companies like Mitsubishi Motors to rapidly deploy new connected vehicle programs globally, and to upgrade existing software infrastructure to improve customer engagement and retention—all within one year, and at the lowest possible cost.
