Innovative New Interface Utilizes Bluetooth to Let you Enjoy and Control Music, Calls and More Using Your Vehicle's Steering Wheel Controls
iSimpleÂ® “ a leader in car integration kits and accessories for smartphones, tablets and other portable media devices “ is proud to announce that its newest and most exciting integration kit to date “ the InSeam, (ISFM2000) “ has been named a 2012 CES Innovations Honoree. Unlike any other car integration kit currently on the market, the InSeam adds a Bluetooth connection to literally any vehicle, allowing the user to enjoy streaming audio and hands-free calling through the vehicle's sound system. Using the vehicle's original steering wheel controls, InSeam offers wireless control of virtually any smartphone or tablet. The InSeam is expected to launch larer in 2013 and carry a MSRP of $169.95. iSimple will be showcasing it at CES Booth 507, LVCC North Hall.
The InSeam offers seamless, wireless integration of a smartphone or tablet with virtually any car radio, providing access to music, calls, messaging, Internet radio, navigation, e-mail and many apps. The innovative combination of a steering wheel control interface (developed by Pacific Accessory CorporationÂ®), a direct-connect FM modulator, a wind-proof microphone and a powerful A2DP Bluetooth module, the InSeam delivers digital-quality audio playback and crystal clear calling, all while allowing you to manipulate your device without taking your hands off the steering wheel.
The streaming audio experience provided by the InSeam is second to none in quality and extremely user friendly. When an A2DP audio stream is detected, the InSeam automatically engages a micro-relay in the main module to physically bypass the incoming FM antenna for maximum noise isolation. As the clean audio signal is passed through all the speakers in the vehicle, the song title and artist data is sent to the radio display providing information at a glance. This ensures amazing playback and ensures the listener has no reason to look at or interact with the smartphone or tablet.
Similarly, caller ID data from the smartphone is pushed to the radio using RDS (Roadway Data System) technology. The audio from the hands free call is automatically routed through the vehicle's sound system for a factory-like experience. By supporting SIRI from Apple and a variety of voice commands on Android devices directly through our microphone, the product is perfectly positioned to take advantage of all that iOS6 and the latest Android versions have to offer. Plus, the InSeam, App for Android or iOS ensures the customer can find just the right FM station for perfect audio quality.
While end-users will love the sound quality, safety and amount of control the InSeam offers, shop owners and installers will benefit from its ease of installation, as well as the large number of applications for this system. Even better, the InSeam benefits from patented PAC steering wheel control interface technology, making it simple to program or update online. Because the InSeam uses Bluetooth connectivity for playback and control (as opposed to a proprietary connector) it not only works with virtually all tablets and smartphones on the market “ as well as today's most popular MP3 players “ but it will be compatible with future generations of these devices as well. Additionally, all the original SWC functions are retained, so the user does not need to sacrifice any functions to add these Bluetooth controls.
