CORAL SPRINGS, FL (11.26.2019) – NAV-TV Corp. has released the Smart-Link Smartphone Interface. Smart-Link enables the display and control of popular Smartphone content through factory radio touch screen displays, aftermarket radios or monitors.
Smart-Link is a universal and modular interface that can be used as a stand-alone unit connected to any monitor or radio with a composite (yellow RCA) input, or may be connected to a NAV-TV vehicle-specific interface that enables display and touch screen control. When used as a stand-alone unit, the interface may be controlled through the optional Smart-Link Controller or, for use in custom applications, through a 4-wire resistive touch-screen overlay.
Smartphones can be connected to the Smart-Link interface either wirelessly or hardwired. When connected through a wired connection, the Smart-Link provides charging for the connected device. To be compliant with Country or State hands-free laws, the device supports Bluetooth hands-free calling as well as phone dependent voice commands which the included noise-canceling microphone. In-vehicle audio routing is achieved through the factory auxiliary audio port or vehicle dependent auxiliary audio interface.
“NAV-TV pioneered the automotive video integration field over 20 years ago and offers solutions for the vast majority of vehicles on the road today. Rather than reengineering vehicle-specific Smartphone integration offerings, we decided to take a modular approach that allows the addition of Smartphone integration to current NAV-TV products. This approach allows our dealers to stock less inventory while having the ability to support a broad range of vehicle applications,” stated NAV-TV Vice President, Derek Schmiedl.
A video demonstration showing the Smart-Link integrated into a Porsche CDR31 radio is available on NAV-TV’s YouTube channel. In addition to Porsche, vehicle-specific NAV-TV integration offerings that support Smart-Link are also available for the following vehicles:
The Smart-Link and Smart-Link Controller are available and shipping now with a retail price of $399.00 and $40.00 respectively.
