Whether you prefer a sunny summer destination or a mountain winter trip, a road trip is a great getaway for many people and their families. Along with planning out things like accommodations and meal plans, it’s important to ensure your vehicle is both up-to-date and also outfitted with the latest technology to make the driving portion of the trip that much more enjoyable.
At Pro Audio Pro 4×4, we’re here to help. We offer a huge variety of products and solutions that are perfect for road trips, from our car audio upgrades to navigation systems and many other such options. In this two-part blog, we’ll go over a number of different accessories or upgrades you might consider for your road trip, featuring several of our top offerings in the process.
Car Audio System
If you’re going to be in the car or truck for hours on end as you drive toward your eventual destination, you need a car audio system that’s high-quality and will keep everyone in the vehicle entertained. There’s nothing worse than dealing with substandard audio for hours consecutively, and believe us, you can really tell the difference over such a period of time.
This starts with an upgrade in speakers in many cases, particularly if you have an older vehicle with a limited stock audio system. We’ll also talk to you about subwoofers, amplifiers and other potential upgrades you can consider.
Receivers and Connections
On top of ensuring your audio output system is upgraded and high-quality, you also want to take the time to make sure your input areas are in good order as well. In today’s day and age, this means ensuring your vehicle has connection services such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay available – these are systems that connect directly with smartphones and other devices, allowing the playing of high-quality audio with no hassle.
This means installing an audio system compatible with these devices. If you have an iPhone, for instance, your system needs to be able to connect with Apple CarPlay, which will allow you to extend the phone’s touchscreen onto a vehicle dashboard for simple – and safer – access.
In addition to audio upgrades, one vehicle upgrade that many consider when going on a road trip is an increased window tint. You’re bound to run into some heavy sun at some point on the trip, and the best way to keep your eyes, skin and even vehicle interior protected from harmful UV rays is to tint the windows. This also increases privacy while you drive and reduces the chances of a break-in when you’re parking in a new area.
