Navigation systems are a popular product category here at Auto Image. We have been selling and installing turn-by-turn GPS systems since they came out in the 1990s, so you could say we know a thing or two about them. Every year, more and more people on the Jersey Shore turn to us for our combination of value, friendly staff and expert installation.
Benefits Over Smartphone Navigation
As smartphones have become more popular, some people have resorted to using the included mapping features to get them from point A to point B. While you can’t beat the value of free, once you have experienced a good-quality installed navigation system, the benefits become clear.
The quality of mapping in these products is superior. Most of us have experienced using one of the free mappings apps only to hear it say “You have arrived at your destination” but find it sending you to a gas station instead of the restaurant you were trying to find. When this happens on a time-sensitive trip and you are now going to be late, “free” takes on a whole new definition.
Cellular Service Not Required For Use
Installed systems don’t need cellular service to work since the mapping software is stored inside your unit. Again, the first time you go to use the phone’s GPS and it can’t connect, you’ll be grateful you bought a system from us.
Our systems don’t use your phone’s data plan like a phone app. As more and more of us rely on our phones for data-related activities, having the option of not using data is a great benefit.
Fully Interactive Navigation Display
Here at Auto Image, navigation systems are not a single model, but rather a complete category. All of our systems are set up on our interactive displays so you can see and operate the units we suggest to you.
Navigation System Standard Features And Options
Some of the popular standard features include Bluetooth for both hands-free use and music streaming. USB ports and aux inputs allow you to integrate all your portable devices. SiriusXM compatability lets you add over 100 channels of music, sports, talk and entertainment to your audio system.
Backup cameras are a very popular option, making it much safer to maneuver your vehicle when in reverse. Some models include the option to add a front-view camera as well. For the ultimate in safety, we can install blind spot cameras or 360 degree camera systems to your vehicle using the screen on your new navigation system.
HD radio is the digital format of the AM and FM stations we have been listening to all our lives. If a station is broadcasting in HD, having one of our models with an HD radio tuner will make your stations come in crystal-clear while adding additional channels for your enjoyment.
Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto are the ultimate way of safely integrating your smartphone into your vehicle. Many of the popular functions of your phone can now be safely used via voice commands. If you own an iPhone or Android phone, be sure to ask us about models that will work with your particular smartphone.
