Pioneer wants to turn your smartphone into a car screen in the dashboard


# CES2019 – If you are buying a new car, you can choose to choose an infotainment system that will support Android Auto or CarPlay. If you are not buying a new car but want these features, there are some after-sale options to check out. However, if you think they're still a bit expensive, maybe Pioneer might have something for you.

At CES 2019, the company announced a new device called the built-in receiver SPH-10BT Smart Sync. This will basically take your smartphone and turn it into a car display on the dashboard that will use the Pioneer Smart Sync Driving system. That means it will not be Android Auto or CarPlay, but at the same time, you'll enjoy using your phone, which will help reduce costs.

It will come with a rotating smartphone base which, when connected, will launch the system. It will also be seemingly easy to install thanks to the size of a single DIN chassis, which means that in most cases it should fit most cars. It will also work well with Pioneer's rear parking sensor technology, which will alert users through their smartphones.

The SPH-10BT is now available for purchase in Europe and for those living in the US, Pioneer is expected to make it available next February, priced at $ 150 for the unit itself. We should note that if you're trying to save money even more, Google's Android Auto really exists as a stand-alone application. So all you need is an assembly and you're ready.
