A client from Danielsville approached Mobile Edge about replacing the radio to boost the technology in his 2008 Four Winds Siesta RV. As you can imagine, he spends a lot of time behind the wheel, and he wanted to be able to stay in touch with his family and friends via Bluetooth. He also wanted an integrated navigation system. We started our conversation by finding out what kind of smartphone he owned. Once we knew he had an iPhone, we suggested the Pioneer AVH-4200NEX with CarPlay.
With his iPhone connected to the AVH-4200NEX, he can send and receive text messages, make phone calls, and plan navigation routes, all by just talking to the radio. Apple’s Siri interface handles all the voice recognition. CarPlay will also let him select the music he wants to listen to, or navigate audio streaming applications like Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
Using Apple Maps for navigation means that he will never have to buy map updates again – Apple takes care of all of that.
We installed the new radio in the dash of his RV and showed him how to use it.
