Perzan Auto Radio in Upper Darby has been in continuous operation since 1948. Over the years, we have seen trends come and go, and one of the most popular solutions for us these days is smartphone integration. It’s hard to believe that in the palm of your hand is a computer more powerful than a desktop not too many years ago.
For many of us, our phones go way beyond just communication. We use them for music, information and navigation. Wouldn’t it be great if there were an easy way to use these features in a vehicle? Well, follow along because Perzan has the solutions for you.
It Starts with a Consultation
First and foremost, the most important step in safely using your smartphone in your vehicle is to have a consultation with one of our highly trained staff. We will look over your vehicle and see how it’s equipped, talk about the current phone you own, and listen as you explain to us how you would like to be able to use it while driving. We gather all this information to allow us to find the best solution for your needs. Depending on those needs, the best solution might be integrating something with your original stereo system or it might be upgrading the head unit in your dash.
CarPlay and Android Auto are Game Changers
In 2014, Apple released Car Play for an iPhone and overnight, it transformed how easily and safely a smartphone could be used while you’re driving. Google followed suit shortly after that with Android Auto for any Android phone running 5.0 or above. Our technicians install a new color touchscreen stereo system in your dash that comes equipped with this technology. Now you can safely make and receive calls and text messages, play the music on your phone, and use the phone’s mapping software almost exclusively via voice control. You can set and read reminders, and access and control popular Internet radio stations like Pandora and Spotify.
Since you are getting a new stereo system in your dash, other popular upgrades are now possible such as a backup camera, satellite radio, upgraded sound quality and even blind spot cameras.
3.5 mm Aux Input Jacks
A simple, yet effective way to play music from your phone in your vehicle is often via a 3.5 mm aux input jack. Many newer vehicles are eliminating this option. Perzan Auto Radio can often give you this feature, allowing you to play any piece of portable electronics with a headphone output jack into your original stereo system.
Bluetooth Solutions with Streaming Audio
Do you own a vehicle without Bluetooth? Or maybe one that does it for hands-free calling but not music streaming? For most vehicles, we have a solution to give you this great option in your factory stereo system, allowing you to enjoy your music wirelessly and talk on the phone safely while you’re driving.
Replacement Radio Solutions that Offer Smartphone Integration
Some of our clients aren’t interested in adding CarPlay or Android Auto, or may own vehicles that do not easily support this style of radio. In this instance, Perzan offers replacement stereo systems that include popular options as Bluetooth, USB ports, aux inputs and satellite radio. Of course, we also can integrate your factory-installed steering wheel controls to work with your new stereo system.
