Visteon’s innovative in-dash entertainment/GPS system now available


Company’s new Navigation Radio System provides seamless integration of radio, GPS, iPod/MP3 player, Bluetooth® phone, CD/DVD entertainment, and more

The Visteon Navigation Radio System – a fully integrated replacement in-dash entertainment system featuring GPS navigation, iPod/MP3 command and control, Bluetooth hands-free phone operation with audio streaming, DVD video, and other premium functionality – is now available for North American passenger vehicles.

The innovative Visteon system, available through automotive dealerships and mobile electronics retailers, dramatically expands on the functionality and convenience of original equipment (OE) radio head units. Featuring a striking 7-inch color digital LCD touch-screen monitor, the new system combines dozens of advanced capabilities within a single unit that fits in most vehicles with a double-DIN radio opening. The Visteon system is compatible with existing steering wheel controls on most vehicles, plus rear (backup) cameras and satellite radio modules.

“This powerful new in-dash system enables vehicle owners to enjoy the most sought-after mobile electronics functionality – from high-quality audio to GPS navigation to seamless command and control of their iPods – in a single, affordable unit that fits precisely in place of the factory radio,” said Mark Boyle, director of sales and marketing, Visteon Mobile Electronics.

Key features of the Visteon Navigation Radio System include:

* Convenient GPS navigation via high-resolution 7-inch color TFT-LCD touch-screen mapping and video monitor (System includes GPS antenna and Tele Atlas map database with more than 10 million points of interest)
* Command and control for iPod
* Bluetooth hands-free phone operation with streaming audio
* Multimedia disk player for audio CDs and video DVDs
* Premium AM/FM tuner
* Compatible with steering wheel controls
* Satellite Radio capable
* Includes USB port, SD Card slot and RCA jacks for audio/video inputs
* Integrated 4x45-watt peak power amplifier and 5.1 channel surround-sound pre-amp outputs
* Rear backup camera video input

The unit’s integrated GPS navigation system provides an intuitive graphic interface combined with touch-screen controls and voice guidance. The 480x800-resolution digital LCD display ensures precise map detail as well as exceptional picture quality.

The Visteon system’s button backlights can be customized to the dashboard control colors for a true “factory” appearance.
