If there is one thing we know about car electronics it’s…well…everything. Only Car Toys has the experts with the knowledge about how to connect any smartphone to any car. Do you need to hear the latest traffic updates? We know the answer. Would you like to listen to endless music from iHeartRadio and Pandora? We know how to do that too.
So when it comes to connecting your car, what are your options? Let’s break it down, level by level.
Bluetooth lets devices communicate wirelessly with each other and allows you to take calls and stream audio from services like Pandora, for example. By integrating wireless functionality into your car’s stereo it becomes easy to manage calls and music without ever needing to pick up your phone.
Plug your phone directly into your deck through USB or an auxiliary audio cable to get immediate connection. This is one of the cheapest and most automatically intuitive solutions if your car is already configured to accept a cable connection. And if you aren’t already outfitted, Car Toys has everything you need to get set up!
Try App Remote
If you are looking for a simple, familiar way to connect to your car, use Sony’s app remote, which turns your car into a secondary display for your phone. With the Sony app remote your smartphone’s touchscreen acts as the remote control for your system, enabling you to enjoy all the capabilities of a full-featured car stereo without the complexity.
MirrorLink offers seamless connectivity between your smartphone and your receiver. It is super easy to use as all apps, content and controls are mirrored straight from your phone to the console.
Connect with WiFi
WiFi units like the Kenwood DNN991HD enable you to connect directly to the internet as well as use pre-installed apps such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, email and many more. You can even stream video! This unit also allows you to share content with other wireless devices like a tablet for seamless entertainment on the road.
Why do these options rock?
Being connected means that all of your devices automatically become easier to use! This makes driving safer through hands-free calling, messaging, mapping, and listening. Everything is easier when you are connected.
