Solutions we offer
In a world where smartphones and other media devices are becoming more and more common and new technology is increasing ways to stay connected, you might be asking yourself “How do I play my favorite media and apps I have stored on my phone or device in my car?”. There are many benefits to integrating your favorite devices and we aim to provide you with cost-effective tools and solutions to accomplish just this task.
You may have seen, or used, solutions like a tape deck adapter. You may have also tried RF adapters. While cheap, they do not offer the full range of functionality and sound quality that you are capable of achieving. Listening to your music via the speakers on the device is not an ideal option either.
Now regarding what products you own – whether it be an iPhone, iPod, Android, Windows, or other device, there are many ways we can assist to integrate your smartphone into your vehicle. Let’s explore some of these options.
There are many ways we can assist to integrate your smartphone into your vehicle
Wired Vehicle Audio and Video Integration
With some of our aftermarket head units, making your media available is incredibly convenient. Some multi-media units we carry actually allow you to operate your smartphone device directly through the interface screen.
In combination with apps such as voice control on Android, Siri with iOS, among others may allow you hands-free voice control over your device as well. Some devices allow more elaborate control such as sending texts, emails, calling, navigating through apps, all without taking a hand off the wheel or eyes off the road!
Audio is only one solution we offer. Feel like playing a YouTube clip or movie through one of your screens while safely parked or to passengers? No Problem. We can also install and integrate screens into your vehicle.
If your car or vehicle has built in factory controls on the steering wheel this can also be integrated
We also carry and offer tools that allow you to “cut the wires” and go completely wireless while streaming content if your device allows. Some of our head units offer enhanced Bluetooth technology that offer voice recognition control, contact access such as Caller ID, muting or pausing media while accepting calls, and resuming once your call is complete. Another solution is a stand-alone Bluetooth integration options, if you wish to keep your existing in-dash stereo system but want to add this additional convenience.
Some more advanced technology actually allows for the transfer of song information, cover art, playlists, and even streaming from apps such as Pandora, iHeartRadio, Spotify, among others. If your car or vehicle has built in factory controls on the steering wheel this can also be integrated to many radio or stereo head units to control volume and track navigation if voice command is not the preferred method.
Let’s not forget the safety aspect of fumbling for your phone every time you want to change tracks, volume, pause, etc. You need to be able to maintain focus on the road. We can assist you and while not only increasing your safety behind the wheel, but enjoying the full range of your device’s technology, data capabilities, and connectivity.
We can mount and secure your device so it, and you, stay safe on your travels and hard wire charging ports to eliminate loose cables and wires inside your vehicle.
Whatever your mobile connectivity needs may be, our friendly experts will be happy to show you many different options to make your media experience optimal, safe, cost effective, and convenient.
