LAS VEGAS — Audiovox introduced at the SEMA show armed with a variety of car products, includ- ing the introduction of a rearview mirror with built- in navigation, and a new iPad mount and acces- sories line.

Debuting at the show is the NM100 rearview mir- ror with built-in iGo Primo navigation. It will ship in January for a $499 suggested retail.
