Basic Bluetooth Systems Offer Affordable Compliance
The good news is that Driven Audio has a solution for everyone to come into compliance with the law and still harness the power of their smartphones safely while driving. Our basic Bluetooth systems will allow you to make calls, send and receive text messages, and even get GPS navigation instructions through your vehicle’s audio system.
Step-Up Systems Offer Exciting Technology
When you step up to one of our systems, which include Apple’s CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto, your compatible iPhone or Android phone becomes a powerful tool that you can safely use while driving your vehicle. These exciting technologies harness the power of Siri and Google Voice to give you control over phone calls, texting, music, GPS mapping, reminders and much more, all safely done via voice control.
Imagine this scenario: You are driving up the road listening to Spotify with the ability to access all of your downloaded music on your phone, and you get a text message. You will see a notification bar come up on your stereo screen that looks a lot like what you would see on your phone screen. You simply tap it and now your stereo offers to read your text message. It then asks if you want to reply, lets you reply and sends the reply for you – all while you are focused on driving.
If you are driving and a reminder comes up on your phone, it will also come up on your stereo screen. When you are done with your communications, Spotify begins playing again. Should you opt to use your built-in navigation, the image and control shows up on your stereo system in your dash, and you select your destination via voice. It couldn’t get any easier.
