Driving safe is a core principle for Sound Depot & Performance. We welcome the opportunity to enhance our customers’ safety behind the wheel whenever it’s suitable and significant. We offer many solutions to elevate your vehicle’s level of safety and we’re happy to demonstrate them in our showroom for you firsthand.
At Sound Depot & Performance in Gainesville, we offer many styles and configurations of reverse cameras (backup cameras). Whether you’re driving a new vehicle that offered a reverse camera and doesn’t have one or need to add one for a vehicle where it was not available, we have you covered. We install the best quality color cameras with excellent optics for both day and night. In fact, some of the factory-fit reverse cameras we offer are virtually identical to the factory-installed option, yet at a much better value.
In addition to the reverse camera, you’ll need a way to view the camera image. We can integrate the video image into a factory-installed LCD screen, the screen of your upgraded aftermarket head unit, in a rear view mirror with integrated LCD or a custom screen solution of your choice. We’ve handled reverse camera solutions for all types of vehicles, including brand new exotics, classic muscle cars, large off-road trucks, 18 wheelers, RVs and much more. We can even configure a front camera system to help with straight in parking or seeing where high-clearance vehicles make it difficult.
Besides the benefit of a reverse aid to see where you’re parking, the added safety of rearward vision ensures you’re considering the safety of those behind the vehicle who may not realize you’re backing up. Between 1990 and 2012 Florida has seen 71 fatalities of children under the age of five years old from cars backing over them. Of course all of those were accidental. If those vehicles would have had a reverse camera, a significant amount of those fatalities could have been avoided. That’s the real benefit of reverse cameras. They save lives.
As a companion or alternative to reverse cameras, we also install reverse sensor systems that provide an audible beep that increases in frequency as the rear bumper gets closer to the obstacle. These use ultrasonic, high-definition sensors equal in quality to factory-installed sensors and fit seamlessly into the bumper for a factory-like appearance.
Depending on the system chosen, the audible beeps may be delivered through one or more speakers in the vehicle while the audio system is muted or through a stand-alone hideaway controller. Either way, reverse sensors ensure you have the situational awareness of obstacles behind you and add a significant measure of safety to backing up.
Collision Avoidance and Lane Departure Warning
One of the latest developments in driver safety electronics are collision avoidance and lane departure warning systems. More and more these safety devices are installed in passenger cars and trucks, but also in many commercial vehicle applications such as taxis, delivery service vehicles and transportation. Any activities placing drivers on the road are ideal candidates for potential insurance savings and increased driver safety using lane departure and blind spot warning systems. Visit our showroom for a comprehensive demonstration on these exciting new technologies and learn just how valuable these features are.
