Technology is rapidly advancing in every aspect of life. “Smart” devices are popping up left and right, offering intuitive features and functionality that make our lives easier. There are “smart” plugs, watches, shoes, and much more!
There are also plenty of smart cars on the market, headlined by Tesla’s line of cutting-edge vehicles. Even if you are not in the market for a new car, there are plenty of ways to make your existing car a “smart car”. The simplest way to make your car “smart” is by installing a brand new head unit.
APPLE CARPLAY OR ANDROID AUTO HEAD UNITS
The best way to make your car a smart car is with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. These two innovative technologies bring all of your favorite smartphone features and functionality safely into your car.
Apple CarPlay allows you to seamlessly connect your iPhone to your car stereo system. Not only does this allow you to play your favorite music from streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music, but it also gives you access to iPhone apps while you drive. You can get step-by-step driving directions from Apple Maps, compose and hear text messages, listen to podcasts or audiobooks, and much more! Apple CarPlay truly creates an immersive driving experience.
Android Auto is very similar to Apple CarPlay, except it is optimized for Android smartphones instead of iPhones. Connect your Android phone to your car stereo system and access your favorite apps while driving, including music, driving directions, phone calls, text messages, and more.
CHOOSE THE CORRECT HEAD UNIT SIZE
If you are truly trying to create a sleek smart car, you want to make sure you choose the correct head unit size for your new Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. If you choose an ill-fitting head unit, your dashboard will look cluttered and low-quality. Clarify whether your vehicle requires a single DIN or double DIN head unit, and choose the perfect head unit for your specific needs.
INSTALL A BACKUP CAMERA
One of the key objectives of any smart car is to keep you safe while driving. A great head unit feature that will keep you, your passengers, and your vehicle safe and secure is a backup camera. A backup camera can be covertly installed on the rear of your vehicle in order to allow you to clearly see behind you when backing up. The camera will feed a clear, high-quality video to your head unit, allowing you to safely avoid obstacles, pull out of your driveway, and parallel park with ease.
CAR DVD PLAYER
The final step to transforming your vehicle into a smart car is making sure you have a dashboard DVD player. Many modern head units come with this functionality and it adds a touch of class and sophistication to any vehicle. What can be better than taking a loved one to a beautiful destination so that you both can sit back, relax, and watch your favorite movie together?
