Pioneer Smart Sync enables one-touch access to apps, information and music on new smartphone receivers and 2018 Bluetooth CD receivers
BANGKOK, SINGAPORE and JAKARTA, Indonesia, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — 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. “Our new Pioneer Smart Sync App works together with our new lineup of Bluetooth audio receivers to transform the in-car entertainment experience for any user with a smartphone.”
A SMARTER DRIVING LIFE AND IN-CAR ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE WITH 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.
Under the hood, the SPH-C10BT comes equipped with all the features drivers need for a hassle-free ride — including support for concurrent audio playback over Bluetooth A2DP, a wired microphone for calls, a single USB port capable of data transfer and quick charging for AndroidTM (1.5A), and support for accessories such as Pioneer’s proprietary parking sensor system.
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.
Drivers looking for a hassle-free audio experience will also be happy to hear the SPH-C10BT comes with a variety of audio convenience features such as Pioneer’s “Super Todoroki” Bass Enhancement Setting, a variety of other EQ presets, and support for Easy Sound Fit — Pioneer’s car audio calibration application.
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:
