Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre, a leader in aftermarket car audio, today announced the launch of the Pioneer Smart Sync in-car infotainment app and its latest lineup of CD receivers for 2019, created to help drivers discover a smarter driving experience with innovative features at a valuable price.
“The smartphone is increasingly becoming the centre of people’s lives. We use it to work, play, communicate, and navigate. We have created a new generation of leading car audio products around users’ needs with the smartphone as the centrepiece of our design,” said Mr Takao Chiba, Deputy General Manager of Product Planning and Marketing Division, Pioneer Electronics AsiaCentre.
PIONEER SMART SYNC
Pioneer Smart Sync transforms compatible smartphones into a receiver display when paired with selected Pioneer Bluetooth audio and digital media receivers, enabling drivers to enjoy features normally found in high- end in-car entertainment systems in a new, affordable and convenient way. With Pioneer Smart Sync, the smartphone acts as a high-resolution touchscreen information display, giving drivers a focused overview of driving information such as cruising speed, altitude, time and date.
Pioneer Smart Sync also leverages the processing power of the smartphone, enabling drivers to use apps productively while keeping focused on the road. With just a press of a button, drivers can launch navigation apps such as Google Maps, activate voice assistants, play music on Spotify, or have unread text messages read out.
BREAKING NEW GROUND WITH THE SPH-C10BT SMARTPHONE RECEIVER
To help drivers fully enjoy the smart driving features offered by Pioneer Smart Sync, Pioneer created the SPH- C10BT – a Bluetooth smartphone car receiver built specifically to leverage the power of the smartphone. The SPH-C10BT comes with a multitude of innovative and ergonomic convenience features, including a built-in,
rotatable smartphone cradle, hardware shortcut keys to launch smartphone apps, and a segmented LCD information display with a 3-zone RGB illumination that synchronises its colour with the Pioneer Smart Sync app.
DEEP AUDIO CONTROL WITH JUST A SWIPE ON THE SCREEN
The SPH-C10BT is built from the ground up to take in-car sound environment to the next level. Thanks to the smartphone receiver’s unique hardware and Pioneer Smart Sync’s software, drivers are able to have full control over their car’s sound – with up to 31 bands of EQ available for adjustment. Pioneer Smart Sync’s granular
interface allows audiophiles to precisely zoom in to each band and adjust specific sections of the audio curve to their liking with a simple tap or a swipe of the finger.
MORE AUDIO OPTIONS WITH A NEW FAMILY OF CD RECEIVERS
Pioneer has also refreshed its lineup of 1-DIN receivers with new cosmetic designs and new audio features such as Karaoke with voice cancellation. Pioneer’s 2019 lineup of 1-DIN CD receivers includes:
