ARLINGTON, VA–(Marketwire -05/31/12)- Technology has made huge strides to make our car trips more entertaining and safe for everyone. CEA’s Automotive Electronics authority, Steve Kidera, highlights the newest gadgets available to help keep us entertained.
Whether you want to listen to music wirelessly or your state or locality mandates hands-free talking while driving, you’ll definitely want Bluetooth technology in your car. Make sure your phone is Bluetooth-enabled in order to be able to make and receive calls using a hands-free device. Also keep in mind that if you wish to stream music from your phone or portable music player, both the phone/player and the radio/car kit/PND must support the Bluetooth Stereo (A2DP) profile.
Taking your entire music collection with you on the go has never been easier thanks to portable devices like the ubiquitous iPod. In recent years, most newer cars and aftermarket car stereos support iPod playback and control. While some radios are ready to plug-and-play with your iPod or iPhone, you may need some additional accessories to make it all work. On some specially equipped factory and aftermarket radios, you can access your iPod playlists and control the device using voice commands.
Aftermarket headunits are a great way to improve sound and add additional features; however, if you want or need to retain your factory radio, upgrading speakers, adding a powered subwoofer and adding high-quality digital audio sources will also dramatically improve sound quality.
Choosing an aftermarket rear-seat entertainment solution for your vehicle is easy and affordable. From overhead monitors to headrest video and wireless headphones, automotive electronics retailers and MECP-certified technicians can help transform your backseat into a mobile home theater.
In-car Internet opens up a world of entertainment possibilities for your trip across town or cross country. Whether streaming movies, music or other media, Internet in your car will keep you and your passengers entertained and relaxed.
In the accompanying video, Steve Kidera, spokesperson for the Automotive Electronics Division at CEA, gives an inside look at some of the newest gadgets consumers are using to stay entertained and focused on the road.
