GPS navigation is one of the most commonly-used features in cars today, and there are really two different types of GPS navigation systems: portable and in-dash. Portable GPS navigation systems are placed in the vehicle whenever and wherever the you want, and you can remove them very easily, at any time. In-dash GPS navigation systems are permanently fixed in a position in your car’s head unit. Each of these provide different benefits.
Portable GPS navigation systems have the benefit of being very mobile, but some may come with a few less bells and whistles that in-dash GPS navigation systems provide. With portable GPS navigation systems, however, you can take them with you in any vehicle and get the benefits of satellite accuracy, no matter who’s car you’re traveling in. Some portable GPS navigation systems will save locations but won’t work by voice command, like an in-dash, fixed GPS navigation system.
The most up-to-date, in-dash GPS navigation system typically outperforms any mobile GPS unit that exists on today's market, with more functions and a better response time. Many in-dash GPS navigation systems also include cameras for the front and rear of the vehicle, for aid in reversing and parking, which you won’t find in a mobile unit. In-dash GPS units are really advanced in many cases, with powerful computers inside of them.
GPS navigation systems, in general, are a great addition to your vehicle. They can save you time and money on gas by directing you to the shortest route of travel, and they help you avoid traffic and reroute you when there is construction or other detours. GPS navigation systems will always be able to track where you are with pinpoint accuracy, so you won’t ever get lost. Whether you’re in the market for a portable or in-dash GPS navigation system, we’re here to help you choose the right one for you.
In almost all countries, the operation of mobile devices when driving is not just unsafe, but illegal. The distraction of using a mobile phone when driving costs lives.
With information presented in a fixed location on a sizable display that never alters position, like in our in-dash GPS navigation systems, you have a more acceptable approach to checking directions. Once you’ve mastered the use of voice controls and learned to trust the voice cues of your navigation system, you won’t even need to look at the unit anymore.
With both portable and in-dash GPS navigation systems, you will never ever have a problem receiving a signal. Even if your 4G device receives no service, GPS navigation systems not rely upon an internet source or web connection to find their way. Instead, they utilizes satellite positioning, helping you find your way no matter where you are.
Selecting and installing a fully integrative in-dash head unit or receiver is the cheapest and most efficient way to upgrade your experience in your vehicle. Even after all of the developments and advancements over the years, most cars’ head units, when they come off the factory floor, have poor features and terrible audio quality, especially when compared to aftermarket products.
An aftermarket receiver or head unit will give you an entirely new exciting experience in-car, permitting you to interface your smartphones and other devices with the vehicle itself. The list of additional features that these devices support goes on and on: DVD players, Bluetooth, GPS navigational utilities, music streaming applications, satellite radio, streaming video, and more.
We have a huge selection of the best in-dash head units and receivers for every budget at our three Mobile One stores in New Orleans, and our friendly professionals can help you tailor your choice to your needs. For example, if you drive a lot with your kids or other passengers, you can easily get a GPS navigation system, combined with a DVD video system, to entertain your guests every single ride. If you are more interested in a single-driver, hands-free system, you may want Bluetooth capabilities, advanced GPS navigation, and crystal-clear satellite radio.
Modern technology has reshaped current society to the degree that today’s generation simply cannot exist without remaining connected, and why should you have to unplug when you get into your car?
Establishing a connection from your mobile gadgets has become easier than ever, enabling you to send a text, make a call, listen to songs of your choice, navigate apps or tune into internet radio stations in your car — all without having to touch your phone.
