Chris- the digital assistant for drivers

Berlin, 28th August 2018: No hands on the smartphone while driving! Now you have Chris - the first digital assistant for drivers. The smart hardware supports drivers like a real co-driver.

Chris is attached to the windscreen like a navigation device and paired with the mobile phone via Bluetooth so every vehicle turns into a connected car with high-end features. The full proactive digital assistant understands simple gestures and displays the relevant information on a colour screen.

This means that the most important apps and services can be used safely and conveniently while driving: send and receive messages, voice-assisted navigation in over 100 countries, fully-fledged hands-free equipment and wireless music playback from your mobile phone. And best of all, Chris also works offline, without any internet connection.
