As technology becomes more sophisticated, in-car entertainment has taken on a whole new meaning. In-car entertainment, or ICE as it is referred to in the automotive circle, is a growing trend in car audio/video systems.
There is a world of options not limited to the factory installed head unit with a CD player or AM/FM radio. Advanced navigation, web surfing, social networking and hands-free interaction are among the latest capabilities of in-car entertainment systems.
If you are looking to improve your car audio system, ICE does not require a trade-up to a newer and fully loaded vehicle. Your audio upgrade can be as simple as streaming music from your iPod or iPhone, or access to your favourite digital radio stations.
Depending on your entertainment needs or desires, your car experts can help you choose and install an in-dash receiver that has Bluetooth connectivity, auxiliary input, with a USB port for smart phone capabilities and is MP3 supported.
Integrate your Apple and Blackberry devices with ease. Many systems feature an iPod connection, which instantly recognizes and transfers information from the iPod to the in-dash receiver and gives the driver full search and playback control through the stereo’s friendly faceplate buttons. The iPad and Blackberry Playbook have not been left behind, with variety of receivers offering compatibility to your gadgets.
In-dash receivers are reasonably priced, depending on your needs. Units start at less than $199 for a model with fewer features, such as CD and digital radio capability. The added benefit of going this route is that you can upgrade at any time based on the technology that is available.
With professional installation, you can turn what may have been a one-dimensional audio system into a fully integrated entertainment system.
