HAUPPAUGE, NY (07.28.11) – Audiovox Electronics Corp. today announced the continued expansion of their Advent branded OE styled multi-media head unit line with the newest system designed for the Toyota Tundra and Sequoia. The Advent brand is marketed exclusively to new car dealers and expeditors by Audiovox Electronics Corp., subsidiary of Audiovox Corporation, (NASDAQ VOXX).

“Our new line of OE-styled multimedia head units allows our car dealer partners to add accessory profit dollars even in this challenged economy. With our program, consumers can add the much desired sound and navigation upgrade without having to add other expensive and unwanted options that are often part of the sound package,” said Tom Malone, President of Audiovox Electronics Corp. “In response to car dealer demand we continue to add models to the line. The Toyota Tundra/Sequoia (OTOTUN1) OE head unit marks our tenth new product introduction in only three months!”

The Toyota Tundra/Sequioa vehicle application offers some of the most sought after consumer features available in the market today, like built-in Navigation with Navteq US/Canada maps, turn-by-turn voice guidance in English, French and Spanish, as well as 19 languages of on-screen display, 11 million POIs with 3D landmarks. There is also built-in Parrot Bluetooth with external microphone, hi-res 7” touch screen display, and is Made for iPhone and iPod, XM –ready, rear-view camera with “Instant-on” technology as well as MediaLink interface modules with USB input that also allows video from an iPod or iPhone (optional cable required) and a 3-year warranty.

“This new system provides the Toyota car dealer with a sound solution upgrade to factory installed systems and delivers an additional profit opportunity. For the Tundra or Sequoia consumer, this unit eliminates the need to buy an accessory package that might include unwanted options when all they really want is the radio upgrade….and the cost of the radio upgrade can be included in the vehicle’s monthly payments and carry’s a 3-year warranty so it is a win all around for both the dealer and the consumer.” Malone concluded.
