Soundstream is showing at CES this week, what it calls a first-of-its-kind radio as it has two screens.
The radio has a double DIN chassis but dual 7-inch glass panel touchscreens. The radio, model VRN-DD7HB, also runs two operating systems at the same time so you can view two different platforms including navigation on the top screen and a DVD or Bluetooth and USB media on the second screen.
The radio comes with iGO navigation on the upper display and Android Phonelink, which mirrors the screen of an Android smartphone. The second operating system runs a DVD player, Bluetooth 4.o, USB media, FM receiver and rear view camera. The system is patent pending.
Also new from SoundStream for 2017 is a dual DIN DVD/radio with a 10.3 inch “brilliant” LCD screen. The VR-1032XB is also SiriusXM ready. It has a USB input, Bluetooth 4.0 and a rear camera trigger.
Under the PowerAcoustik brand is a new double DIN DVD/radio with SiriusXM capability. The PD-625XB has a detachable 6.2-inch faceplate, USB and Bluetooth connectivity. It also provides a steering wheel interface, and multi-band audio equalizer with presets.
All models are slated to ship in February at prices to be announced.
