Here at Sound Depot and Performance, we sell a lot of navigation systems to people in Gainesville, Florida. Our clients will often ask us, “Why would I want to make the investment in a navigation system when I have one on my phone?” That is a very good question. Here are the reasons we give our clients.
No Cell Service Required
An in-dash navigation systems is always on. You don’t need Internet access for it to work.
Talk And Navigate At The Same Time
If you use the navigation system on your phone and receive a call, your phone defaults to that function.
The mapping software in an in-dash system is going to be more accurate. We all know people who have used free mapping software on their phones, only to hear it say “You have arrived at your destination” when they have not. Maybe that’s why it is free?
In-Dash Navigation Offers a Safer Screen Size
The screen in an in-dash navigation system is much larger, allowing you to stay more focused on the road ahead. You only need to glance at our installed systems to see what is going on.
- HD radio
- Sirius XM
- Backup cameras
- Upgraded amplifiers and speakers USB ports, to allow playback of digital media sources and the charging of portable electronics
- Android and iPhone integration
Speaking of Android and iPhone integration, we have models that allow you the opportunity to run Android Auto and Apple’s Car Play software in your vehicle.
If you own a newer Android phone running 5.0 or above, come check out Android Auto. It allows for wireless control of many aspects of your phone, including text messaging, phone calls and music control. Now you can speak your commands, and the phone will respond in kind. It brings a new level of safe interaction, allowing you to focus better on the road ahead.
Apple Car Play
If you are an Apple fan and own an iPhone 5 or newer, Car Play is a great solution for safely accessing many of the popular features of your phone while driving. You simply use Siri to wirelessly control your music, texting, phone calls and more.
Android Auto and Car Play are hands-down the safest way to harness the power of your smartphone in your vehicle. You can do it safely and easily, without the frustration you may have experienced in the past. As these software packages were developed by Google and Apple, not a third-party, they work so much better than the feeble attempts of the past.
We invite you to stop by Sound Depot and Performance with your vehicle. Let’s get to know each other better and figure out your unique needs. At that point, we will work with you to design and install the best solution for you. And make sure you ask us for a live demo of Car play and Android Auto. You are going to love them!
