Rosen Electronics is showing at KnowledgeFest this week, its first line of factory look-a-like radios designed specifically for the car audio specialist.
Called the Carshow line, it includes a universal double DIN AV/navigation radio with a factory look. Additionally, ten or more kits customized for different cars and trucks are available. The kits include a Scosche installation kit and a car-specific plug and play harness.
The OE kits are available now for the Ford G150, GM Series, Hyundai Sonata & Elantra, Toyota Camry/ Prius/Highlander/Sequoia/Tundra plus the VW Series which fits many current VW models. Others vehicle kits will be added in the future.
The universal Carshow model has a Made For iPod interface that displays album art on the radio screen with a USB connection for the iPhone and charging. It also includes Parrot Bluetooth with phonebook download, and it is Sirius-ready and backup camera-ready. The street price on the universal model (now shipping) is $699. When bundled with car-specific kits the cost will range from approximately $749 to $799.
In September, Rosen will also ship under the Carshow brand for retail specialists a line of factory-look DVD headrest replacement systems with high definition LCD displays and integrated DVD/CD/MP3 players.
