Oxnard – Boss Audio Systems, a leading full-line supplier of consumer electronics for automotive and marine applications, announced that it is now shipping the highly anticipated BV9370NV navigation receiver,which was introduced in January during the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The new flagship receiver leads a line of innovative in-dash units with designs and feature sets that exceed expectation at every price point.
Single Unit Simplifies Installation
The BV9370NV is a complete one-unit solution fronted by a 6.2-inch TFT touch-screen that provides the user with sought-after features out of the box, with no need to purchase or install additional modules. The navigation system features turn-by-turn spoken directions to destinations in all 50 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico, with more than 2 million Points of Interest (POI). Built-in Bluetooth® functionality enables users to perform safe, hands-free calls using the embedded microphone, audio speakers and on-screen controls. The BV9370NV also connects directly to any late-generation iPod®, giving the user full control over audio selection and playback.
“We’re very proud of the BV9370NV,” said Doug Kern, executive director of sales and marketing. “We wanted to give our customers a single, complete unit that included the features consumers need and want most. The navigation is solid and simple to use, and the graphic interface puts most functions a touch or two away. It received a lot of attention during CES, and we are pleased it’s ready to go out to our retail network.”
Designed to Integrate and Expand
In addition to its inbuilt features, the BV9370NV is designed to interface with other devices, media and vehicle functions. It includes an SD card reader to store music onboard the unit, as well as update navigation maps via a personal computer. Portable media devices plug in through a standard front-mounted AUX port. Pre-amp outputs enable connection of external front, rear and subwoofer amplifiers in lieu of the internal 320-watt max (80watts x 4) amplifier. With a backup camera connected to the included composite connector, the screen will display the area behind the vehicle when it is placed in reverse. The BV9370NV also connects directly to factory steering wheel controls in applicable vehicles to allow volume adjustment and media selection.
Additional features include a 30-preset AM/FM tuner with RDS (Radio Data System) display and U.S. / Europe frequency compatibility, CD / DVD slot, built-in equalizer and wireless remote control. Suggested retail price for the BV9370NV is $689, excluding installation. For retailers and distributors, four units ship in a master carton.
