Sony XSP- N1BT Turns Your Smartphone Into a Car Stereo
Today Sony India announced XSP- N1BT, a smart docking system that may make those long and tedious drives back from work slightly less painful.
Sony XSP- N1BT can be propped on the dashboard, and the phone can be connected onto the dock. Their docking system accommodates various sizes of Smartphone’s from various brands. Android Smartphone users can utilize the one touch Near Field Communication Connection for quick Bluetooth pairing.
First, you’ll need to download “App Control” onto your phone. Once the app is downloaded and the phone is connected, you’d have easy access to your music, radio, navigation, phone calls, and text messages. The app will then help you control the car audio system as well as give you control of all of your Smartphone’s other apps (think Souncloud.)
Since this device is made specifically keeping drivers in mind, they have included a much-needed voice control system. Instead of pulling over and struggling to set a destination on your navigation app, this voice command function will give you control over your Maps. It will also reads out the incoming texts and emails (this can be turned off).
While its main attraction is the docking system, it can also used as standalone device with CD, USB, radio and tuner functions. Lastly, the device has charging capability with an optimally designed compact USB cable for any type of Smartphone. Since everyone is constantly complaining about their drained battery, we suspect this feature would be appreciated.
Priced at Rs 12,990, the device is available in all major car accessories stores.
