11/01/2010 01:37:52 PM Eastern

Oxnard, Calif. - Scosche
Industries lifted the veil on a range of new products being introduced at the
SEMA Show this week.

S3-1

SEMA is being held Nov.
2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

New products include
dash kits for the 2010 models of Ford Mustang (FD1441B), Ford Taurus (FD1447B)
and Chevy Camaro (GM5201B), all said to use a full color touchscreen air
conditioning controller and all priced at $299. The kits are configurable for
single or dual climate controls, Scosche said, and plug directly into the
factory AC harness.

Scosche will also
introduce "Custom kit, Factory fit" dash kits offering automotive-grade
components, meant for a seamless installation of any aftermarket head unit to
replace the factory radio in select vehicle models, it said. New kits will be
offered for Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota
vehicles.

The manufacturer said it
will consolidate 11 Scosche SKUs with its S3-1 stereo replacement interface
($169), which is engineered to retain steering wheel controls when installing
aftermarket stereos from Pioneer, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC and Sony. It's
said to be configurable for more than 40 million registered vehicles.

The new line of OE
interfaces is designed to add an aux input and full or partial control of an
iPod via a factory stereo. Features include 30-pin iPod dock and charging cable;
manual control option to control iPod; and track up/down, volume, full
scrolling text, and menu options such as artist, album and song title. The line
reportedly retains factory XM satellite radio and OnStar.

Scosche added to its BlueFusion
hands-free interface line with the BT1000 and BT1200 hands-free streaming audio
kits. The kits come with a hands-free mic and enable voice dialing. Pricing
wasn't given.

Availability for the
products will be early spring 2011, a spokeswoman told TWICE.
