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.
