Hauppauge, N.Y. - Audiovox has upgraded its Advent-branded OE-look A/V-navigation system for the Toyota Camry, adding such features as upgraded Bluetooth, rear-view camera connection, and faster processor for faster menu selection and screen changes.
The multimedia-navigation system, which is shipping to expediters, marks the 11th product introduction this year in the Advent-branded
of A/V-nav systems, a spokesman said.
All of the new Camry head-unit features are already available in Advent's other OE-look A/V-nav systems, he added.
The Bluetooth upgrades, made possible through the inclusion of Parrott's Bluetooth chipset, include stereo Bluetooth, call management with call waiting, caller ID, push-to-talk functionality, Bluetooth's Phone Book profile and in-field upgrade options. An external hands-free microphone is included.
An updated user interface, including onscreen icons and graphics, is also new.
The head unit features 7-inch touchscreen, Apple-certified iPhone/iPod USB connection, XM-ready capability, and ability to play back iPod/iPhone-stored video with an optional composite-video cable.
The navigation section features Navteq's database of U.S. and Canada maps and turn-by-turn voice guidance in English, French and Spanish. It also offers onscreen display in 19 languages, and 11 million points of interest with 3D landmarks.
The system carries a three-year warranty.
