R-LINK 2, the personalized, intuitive, connected multimedia system

Both of the big stars unveiled to the public at the Renault stand at the Geneva Motor Show last week were fitted with the R-Link 2 connected multimedia tablet, designed for the ultimate in motoring multimedia convenience with fully customizable individual driver experiences.

Onboard control

Renault's new onboard multimedia system makes a striking impression: on Espace, it measures 8.7” (the first of its kind from a volume carmaker) and on Kadjar 7”. It's clear and responsive, which means fast and uncomplicated to use: no hassle! As well as appreciating the new graphic experience, new-tech converts will recognize all the regular tablet attributes on R-Link 2, with its intuitive interface that includes drag-and-drop icons and scroll and zoom functions.

Individualized driving experience

The driver decides: R-Link 2 takes practicality to the extreme, in adjusting to different user personalities.  It can be set with up to six driver profiles , which adapt the vehicle to different driver preferences (radio stations, seat position, ambience, phone link) in a single click. Then for safe, simplified operation, R-Link 2 also has voice control for satnav, phone and applications.

More connectivity

R-Link 2 inherits its predecessor's rich catalogue to offer a wide range of proven connectivity applications such as Michelin (hotel, restaurant and travel), Twitter, Coyote (in some countries), email reading, fuel price information and games.  In addition, it comes with 12 months free access to TomTom Traffic (available in some countries) and a three-month free Coyote service.
