If you’re looking for 2017’s must-have automotive technologies, Audio Express is the place to go. We have everything from car audio receivers with the latest technologies to the best safety and convenience gadgets. Here are five must-haves for 2017. Touchscreen Display Avoid the frustration of locating a small, barely illuminated button by upgrading to one of our many receivers with touchscreen display. With the Kenwood DDX-394-Sat receiver you get the advantage of a 6.2-inch touchscreen display along with dual phone Bluetooth connectivity and the satellite radio tuner included. If you’re looking for something with a smaller in-dash footprint, then the Jensen VX3014 Single Din Touchscreen Stereo is one of many options we carry with a motorized touchscreen that slides out to reveal a 7-inch touchscreen and access to all of your receiver technologies and apps like Pandora, Spotify and SiriusXM. Subwoofers If your stereo isn’t giving you the bass you desire, maybe it’s time to add a subwoofer or two. The Kicker 43CWRT122 12 Inch Comp Subwoofer is designed to conveniently fit any vehicle and pump 500 watts of sound, giving you the hard-hitting bass you want. Back-Up Camera If you’re tired of not knowing what’s behind you as you back out of the driveway, a back-up camera is just the tool you need. Easily able to send video to your touchscreen display, rearview mirror or even a stand-alone monitor, a back-up camera will provide you with peace of mind, knowing you can see the world behind your vehicle as you’re backing out or into a parking spot. Remote Start Get into your car comfortably in the blistering heat of summer or bitter cold of winter with remote start. With the ability to start your car from the comfort of your home or office, your car will be the perfect temperature when you are ready to get in. Dash Camera Whether you want to document your drive on a scenic highway or capture your rough off-road experience, a dash camera will record video of every trip without the bouncy motion-sickness-inducing quality of your passenger’s cell phone recording. You can also protect yourself from fraud and higher insurance rates with a DVR dash cam. While witnesses of a car accident can have different stories, a dash camera will always tell the truth. Audio Express For more information, stop by one of our many conveniently located Audio Express locations and talk to one of our car audio professionals.

And remember, at Audio Express, we offer the lowest install prices around. Don’t forget to check out our amazing financing options.

Buying Guide: What You Need to Know about Headrest Monitors

There are plenty of reasons you should consider installing a headrest video monitor or combination headrest monitor and DVD player in your vehicle. Slim and compact, they take up little space in the vehicle, but deliver lots of entertainment value. Units can be integrated into headrests or attached directly to the factory headrest’s post, allowing them to be compatible with many of today’s newer vehicles equipped with active headrest features. Plug and Play DVD Headrests Plug and play systems are essentially pre-installed within a replacement headrest. Installation requires little more than removing the existing headrest and plugging the replacement into the vehicle’s entertainment system.  Custom Installed Headrest DVD Players Vehicle owners who want to maintain the factory aesthetics of their vehicle love custom installed headrest DVD players. Installation of these systems requires cutting into the existing headrest and flushing the monitor inside. The main advantage to this type of system is that it blends seamlessly into the overall interior of the vehicle. Custom Factory Look and Fit Headrest DVD Players Another option for vehicle owners who prefer aftermarket quality when it comes to picture quality and playback options, but want the same factory look, is our OEM custom headrests. Made to OEM specifications, even down to the exact leather pattern, color and grain, these will look like they came right from the factory. You can even have your vehicle model stitched onto the headrest. For consumers interested in this option, Audio Express offers special order factory-matched head rests with your choice of 7 or 8 inch screens with the highest quality DVD player available. Choosing Integrated or Self-Contained Systems Another question you need to determine is whether you want an integrated system or one that is self-contained. Integrated systems can be connected to a DVD head unit, which makes it possible to share media on multiple screens and the speaker system within the vehicle. These do require a little more wiring, but the results can keep the whole family entertained on long road trips. Conversely, you may prefer a self-contained system, which requires little more than connecting it to the car’s power supply, and typically enjoying sound thru a separate wireless IR headphone. These systems include either an LED or LCD backlit monitor, DVD player and speakers or an audio output. This limits the ability to share the entertainment being enjoyed, but it gives everyone the flexibility to enjoy their favorite programming in peace.     Sorting Through Features Galore There are more than a few additional features you should look for when installing a vehicle entertainment package. Built-in video games, remote controls and, of course, USB ports and extra headphone jacks are features that you may want to include. The key to selecting the right features is to determine your existing needs and forecast the features that would be most beneficial to the members of your family. Audio Express We invite you to contact Audio Express to learn more about our in-vehicle DVD players and headrest monitors and to discover the many entertainment options we have available. We will be happy to answer your questions and show you why you can rely on our quality guarantee.

Benefits of a Car Video Monitor and TV

Have you ever considered a video system for your car? More and more people are discovering how great it can be to have a video system in their vehicle to shorten long road trips, or make the drive to the grocery store that much quieter. Here is a look at some of the benefits one might bring you.   Road Trips If you have kids, then you know just how distracting and restless they can get on a long drive. Whether it’s a day trip to the lake or a longer drive out of state, children get bored. Their youthful energy makes it hard to stay in the car seat for hours on end. Enter a drop-down DVD player or Concept headrests; that boredom comes to an end, and you get your peace back while they listen to their content thru wireless headphones. Adding a new, quality video monitor will provide your children hours of entertainment, watching their favorite movies, and allow you to focus on the road. Back-Up Camera Capability Blind spots can be terrible when backing out of a parking space and it’s impossible to see anything directly behind your rear bumper. Adding a back-up camera to your video receiver can reduce the risk of backing into or over something you couldn’t see through your rearview mirror or your rear window. This is especially helpful when you drive trucks or SUVs. Back-up cameras are also great tools to assist in backing into a cluttered garage without bumping into anything. The image can also appear in your rear view mirror, or a separate, custom installed screen if you don’t have an in-dash monitor. Navigation While most of us use Google Maps, Waze or Apple Maps for navigation, sometimes just having a voice giving you directions through your speakers isn’t enough. If you’re driving down the freeway in rush hour, it can be helpful to know which exit you need before you need it. Google Maps and the other apps often only give a half-mile notification of your next exit or turn. When you’re flying down the fast lane in heavy traffic, that half mile may not give enough time to merge across traffic to get to your exit. With the right in-dash video receiver the map comes to your screen to show you in advance your next move. Using the receiver’s built-in navigation is one option, but many receivers come equipped with the ability to use your favorite app right on the screen, giving you the benefit of on-screen display with real-time traffic updates from apps like Waze. Larger Display Trying to get information from the screen of a standard single DIN stereo receiver can be a pain, and dangerous, especially if it’s a single line set to scroll through. You end up repeatedly looking at the display to get the information you’re looking for, instead of the road. With a larger video display, all of the information can be seen in one quick glance, allowing you to keep more focus on what around and ahead of you.

Long gone are the days when children needed to play Slug Bug or read road signs to keep from getting bored on a long road trip. As you prepare your car for a cross-country drive this summer, installing things like dropdown video monitors or headrest monitors will ensure that everyone enjoys the ride over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house. Dropdown Video Monitors Can Pick Everyone Up Drop-down video monitors come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from seven inches up to 23 inches. Many have HDMI inputs and are Wi-Fi capable, which makes them easy to connect to DVD players, tablets, laptops, etc. for easy streaming. When coupled with wireless headphone transmitters, dropdown monitors can keep the kids entertained so you can focus on the road. Headrest Monitors and Flip Down DVD Players Create Comfort If you are looking for something easy to install that won’t ever get in the way, headrest monitors and Flip Down DVD players are definitely something you want to consider. These feature seven- to nine-inch LED or LCD screens that can be easily adjusted and controlled. They also feature two or more A/V inputs so they can be connected to game machines, laptops, tablets and phones. These are some of the most popular rear seat video options on the market because they are so easy to use and provide hours of cross-country entertainment.  In-Dash Navigation Will Get You Where You Want to Go If you don’t like stopping for directions and don’t feel like trusting the clerk at the gas station, then in-dash navigation is a must-have for your summer excursions. Options such as the Kenwood DNX893S feature touchscreen controls and Garmin 3-D building maps to help you get wherever you want to go. Plus, built-in navigation will keep you on track even when your phone loses data and is no longer in your cellular service range. Most will allow you to connect your in-dash navigation system to Apple Car Play or ANDROID AUTO and other navigation tools. With these, you can use your monitor to send messages, make calls and pull up directions on demand as your route changes and you decide to make a new pit stop or two along the way. Professional Installation at Audio Express Puts It All Together There is nothing worse than a rear seat video player or in-dash navigation system that conks out on a long journey. At Audio Express, our professional installation team makes sure that all the components are properly wired and tightly secured. Our 7-Point Plan ensures that every detail is taken care of and that the quality of each installation lives up to our guaranteed standards. We encourage you to contact Audio Express to learn more about our video installation options. We will be happy to help you choose the right system for your family’s entertainment needs.
