The features, applications and power of your smartphone outweighs pretty much all the offerings by automotive manufacturers for in car stereos, music and entertainment. Yet car manufacturers still refuse to simply make room for you to slip your smartphone or tablet into your car dash rather than use their antiquated in car entertainment systems and out dated low resolution screens.
The team at Vehroot are hoping to correct this and have created a smartphone car stereo that allows you to use the power of your smartphone or tablet to provide in-car entertainment, GPS navigation or information within your automobile when you need it. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this uniquely versatile in-car entertainment system.
Navigation, audio, and app options on tablets and smartphones are better than in-dash car stereo options. Better because tablets and smartphones offer vastly more options, which are updatable, connected to Internet, and use a familiar control interface. So rather than integrate mobile devices with outdated (or soon to be outdated) and limited technology, we’ve created the Shelf to replace the vehicle stereo with mobile devices. The Shelf enables you to enjoy your phone or tablet as part of the car, and connect your car with the latest and best technology.
Very few car stereos, even the newest ones, offer High-Definition (HD) audio over Bluetooth. But many current mobile devices do support HD Bluetooth audio (click here for a partial list of current HD mobile devices). The sound quality difference is profound, and the Shelf provides this listening experience for your vehicle. Experience your favorite music in HD with the Shelf!
Vehroot is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges starting from $400 and delivery is expected to take place during May 2018. For full specifications and more information jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page via the link below.
