JBL Ad Maroon 5

JBL (Harman) is introducing its first in-dash aftermarket head unit in decades with the Legend CP 100. It packs CarPlay and Android Auto, and ships in February at $399.95, making it the least expensive Apple/Google deck announced to date by a wide margin.

The CD-less (mechless) media player has a 6.75-inch touch capacitive screen, AM/FM tuner with station and song ID and Bluetooth 3.0 (HFP, AVRCP) for audio streaming. It uses what JBL calls a leading edge iMX6 processor for “one of the fastest responding interfaces on the market.”

The radio is steering wheel interface ready and has a rear camera input.   There’s a push to talk button for Siri and Google Voice and a rear USB input.

The Legend CP100 will be on view at the Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas during CES at the Harman suite.

PS. We are fairly certain that Harman/JBL offered in-dash navigation decks years ago. We’ll check this out later during CES.

  1. Just what we’ve been saying Pioneer, Kenwood or Alpine should have been doing the whole time. Maybe even Parrot.
