Software engineer Ji Lao believed that not only the car deserves to be in good condition, but also the built-in phone.

The appearance of car phones was considered a major technological breakthrough, after which it was possible to reach a person not only at home, but also on the road. Later, after the spread of mobile phones, this technology quickly became obsolete.

When restoring classic cars, you usually don’t do much to update the car’s phone. Not much, although of course these devices have not been removed from the vehicle by the technicians, they cannot be used – in the absence of a network – anymore. the pickles YouTube videographer Jeff Lau, who works as a software engineer, decided to clarify: It doesn’t have to be this way.

The videographer used the phone built into a 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4. A unique Bluetooth adapter is installed in the car, so that the device can be used again.

Of course, the process was not as simple as described. It took Lau three years to design and install the switch between a telephone’s transceiver and amplifier. This made it possible to connect to the modern mobile network with a phone manufactured in 1993. The car phone only needs to be paired with the mobile phone in order to use it.

The car’s built-in microphone also transmits all instructions given by the driver to the phone, and instructions can also be given to Apple’s digital assistant Siri.
