With the quick processor and high RAM, the A89PRO Series from Audio Tech Direct will blow your mind, not your budget. This modern, complete and very user-friendly radio looks robust and gives the interior of your car a real upgrade. In addition, this car radio is equipped with the new CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
The on board Android Operating System with robust performance, privacy protection improvements and all the benefits that come with it including access to the world's largest App Market. The Vehicle-Class Android Operating System means, we haven't added in the latest Android. We have added in a version that has been proven stable and re-engineered to give you the most stable Android solution on the market currently. Install your favourite apps like Spotify, YouTube, Google, play music online, hundreds of navigation options and get real-time traffic, use offline maps without using your phone and much more. Connect various external devices to expand functions. More than 1,000 apps from the Google Play Store are tested for installation, especially media/entertainment and navigation apps in the "Cars & Vehicles" category.
The ultimate co-pilot. Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And CarPlay now features more app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay Dashboard. You can send audio messages with SiRi so you never have to look at your phone while driving. You can also have SiRi announce all your incoming messages then simple speak to reply. You can also ask SiRi to share your ETA with someone from your contacts list whilst navigating with Apple Maps, to help keep everyone who needs to know, in the know.
Android Auto brings apps to your car display so you can focus while you drive. You can control features like navigation, maps, calls, text messages, and music. Android Auto is your smart driving companion that helps you stay focused, connected, and entertained with the Google Assistant. With a simplified interface, large buttons, and powerful voice actions, Android Auto is designed to make it easier to use apps that you love from your phone while you’re on the road.
A new version of the Bluetooth standard means various improvements. With Bluetooth 5.0, you can enjoy talking on the move with the hands free calling element of the head unit. Then with music, you have the A2DP Bluetooth Music mode and this will show the track information when streaming via smart mobile phone. Open Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, Amazon Music etc on your phone and then open the A2DP App and start streaming. You can play/pause, track forward and track back on the touch screen. Song name and Artist will be displayed on the screen.
With the unit it is very easy to drive to your destination. This radio is standard equipped with an offline navigation program with which you can navigate without additional costs thanks to the supplied GPS receiver. The navigation can be set in various languages, including Dutch, French and English. If you opt for online, you can choose from, for example, Google Maps. However, if you look in the Google Play Store, you will see that there are many more options for navigating online. An example of this is Waze. Such applications allow you to navigate offline and update the maps free of charge.
Thanks to a built-in DSP amplifier, you can enjoy accurate and lively sound under all circumstances with the car radio. When you play a song inside a building, it sounds different than a song playing in your car. This is because the acoustics are different, so the music is heard differently. A DSP can be used to smooth out differences in acoustics so your music will sound like you are hearing it in person instead of through a speaker. A Digital Signal Processor is a device that allows you to manipulate signals from various inputs and allows your speakers to play in a way that they were designed to by cutting out distortion and increasing overall volume.
This Android version makes it possible to use the split screen mode. Open and operate two applications at the same time on the HD touchscreen screen. You can use split screen mode on Android devices to view and use two apps simultaneously. It is worth noting, not all apps support this use but most do. The design has a renewed emphasis on the split-screen interface, so that you can manage up to two tasks at a time without removing the focus from the main reason there's a screen in your car.

In the current market, there are now many cheaply built replica units which look similar to ours but have extremely poor internals and parts such as thin flimsy metal frames and cheap plastics. These are simply low-grade, low-quality, cheaply built products which are flooding the market, many with even fake specifications! Which is why it is always important to choose a highly reputable and trusted source like Audio Tech Direct to avoid any disappointments.
