PHILADELPHIA, PA (07.01.11) – KS Autotek is connecting their customers with the latest in-vehicle mobile electronics. Pioneer’ products, behind the AVIC-Z130BT and AVIC-X930BT are leading the way. Recent installations at Philadelphia based KS Autotek include AVIC-Z130BT’s in a ’09 BMW M3 and a 2011 Camaro plus an AVIC-X930BT in a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Speaking for KS Autotek Steve Sze stated “We show each customer in our store how to enhance connectivity in their vehicle, Pioneer AVIC Nav units showcase connectivity today.”
These two new in-dash navigation models allow drivers to be informed and entertained while focusing on the road.
Pioneer’s two new in-dash navigation models are the first to conveniently connect drivers to the world around them with on-demand, interactive, personalized radio. Via an iPhone running the free Aha Radio Mobile App connected to the new AVIC systems, users can listen to the latest traffic conditions on their current road or commute road, listen to Facebook and Twitter updates, access hundreds of podcasts and other services such as the “Hungry” and “Coffee” stations which deliver real-time vicinity search results and directions to preferred restaurant categories listed on Yelp. Aha Radio offers over 100 content and podcast stations that can be conveniently accessed and controlled directly on the touch display of the Pioneer system.
The App Mode feature, which can only be accessed when the vehicle is in park and the hand brake is fully engaged, lets users view a connected iPhone’s video content from Safari, YouTube and other select apps2 directly on a larger high resolution screen. Audio from these video source and compatible apps, such as MotionX-GPS Drive’s navigation voice guidance can be heard through the vehicle speakers while driving.
“iPhone and iPod users are served so well with Pioneer’s in-dash receiver lineup. Aha Radio info, Facebook updates and, while “in park”, so much more. Safety options, like backup cameras, are also features customers appreciate. But we have to let them know with a demonstration. When we install a Pioneer headunit we run the reverse line – so adding a backup camera down the road is quick and very easy. Each time the vehicle is put into reverse the customer is reminded of the benefit of having a backup camera” Sze commented.
Continuing Sze said “We recently installed a Z130BT in my mother-in-law’s ’07 RAV4. The unit is easy for her to use. She now tags songs she hears on WOGL, the oldies channel in Philadelphia, and checks traffic conditions.
KS Autotek has served the Philadelphia area since 2003. A well equipped 3 vehicle installation bay is utilized to its fullest every day as KS Autotek staff members complete dealership and retail customer installations.
