Top car entertainment items to get your hands on in the New Year sales

CAC Admin |

With another year about to be put firmly behind us, there has never been a better chance to treat ourselves to a few luxuries.

Make sure you put your best foot (or should that be wheel?) forward in 2014 and get your hands on these top car entertainment devices. With New Year sales coming up, you’re sure to get them at a steal!

1. In-car DVD players

Keep the kids entertained throughout long journeys with in-car DVD players. These gadgets tend to take the form of roof-mounted screens that fold down for rear passengers but there are plenty of other options you can consider – such as advanced stereo screens which support DVD playback.

If you don’t want to be tormented by the soundtrack of a film you can’t watch while driving then look for a unit with IR transmitters for use with infra-red headphones – helping your kids stay free from wires and isolating all movie sounds.

DVD players with SD card slots and USB connections are also a great idea if you plan to transfer your media from flash drives or memory cards

2. Double Din Touch Screen

The ultimate entertainment tool, get 2014 off to a roaring start with double din touch screens for your entertainment system or car stereo. Double din refers to the size of the head unit and is larger than single din units.

These are the perfect units for those who don’t want to be limited to one form of entertainment and can transform your car into a mobile cinema or gig venue. The touch screen design is incredibly user friendly (perfect for when passengers need to take control) and the units can support video as well as music playback.

Look for units with Bluetooth compatibility as well as iPad or iPhone connectivity.

3. Speakers and amps

Of course, your favourite films and hit tracks won’t live up to high expectations if your sound system is below par – no matter what entertainment unit you have to play them through. This is why car speakers and amps are essential and investing in a complete package is the most obvious solution.

Look for packages with multiple channels and plenty of output and consider enhancing things further with subwoofers, tweeters and extra speakers.
