Smartphone use has seen an explosion. Do you know anyone who doesn’t have one? Think back just 5 years back. How many people had them then? While smartphones are a tremendous asset, they can also be a liability. It is very easy to be distracted by a smartphone while driving. This distraction is a hazard to everyone on the road. Recently aftermarket radio companies have begun to address this safety issue. At the forefront is Pioneer with it’s Apple CarPlay media player.
Apple CarPlay Provides Convenience and Safety
The owner of this 2014 Toyota Tacoma came to us looking for a way to safely use his new iPhone 6 in his truck. At Kingpin Car and Marine Audio we stay up to date on the newest technologies so we immediately knew the solution for him. We were excited to share with him the features and operation of the new Apple CarPlay unit.
Further discussion with the client revealed he also wanted to increase the safety of his truck when backing up but he wanted to keep the truck looking stock. Again, we had a solution, in a replacement tailgate handle with a built in backup camera.
These upgrades drastically increased not only the safety of the truck but also the convenience for the client. Now the client had voice control of, and access to, navigation mapping, music, text messages, email and much more, safely.
If you are interested in adding the convenience and safety of hands free smartphone integration or would like to add a backup camera, call or contact us today. If you are in the area, feel free to stop by our facility. We would love to show you around and take a look at your ride.
