Stay Safe This Summer with an Escort Radar Detector

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

I don’t know about you, but in the summer I feel like I’m always going somewhere. Since I spend so much time in the car, there are so many more chances to be pulled over. I’ve been lucky so far (knock on wood). I like to play it safe, so I have been thinking of getting an Escort radar detector.

Now through July 18th, Abt and Escort are giving away a free accessory pack to anyone that purchases a radar detector. So get the Escort radar detector and get a free SmartCord and SuperCup mount.

For more information on radar detectors, speak with an Abt mobile electronics sales specialist today or view the radar detector buying guide on Abt.com.

Abt's Mobile Electronics Installers Do It All

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Abt’s mobile audio department can turn your car into your own personal playground. John S., mobile electronics department manager called me today and said, “Do you want to come down and see an iPad that I just put in the dash of a car?”

I grabbed my camera and headed down to mobile electronics. I had an image in my head of what I thought it would look like, and admittedly, I wasn’t sure what the iPad would do, but I knew it would look cool.

When I got to the installation bay, I looked in the passenger door as John finished putting on the final touches and tested everything to make sure that the stereo and iPad worked correctly. I told him how cool it looked and then I stopped and said, but what does it do?

John explained that the iPad could control everything from the ignition, to the locks, to the security system on the Tahoe. He went on to show me it worked in conjunction with the Viper Smart Start App on his Blackberry.

In addition to controlling major systems in the car, it also performs all the functions of an iPad, like accessing iTunes and iPad Apps.

The iPad works off the wireless or 3G network, so if you want to use it as a GPS, radio, or streaming video player, go for it. You can do virtually anything with it.

For more information or cool ideas for your car, contact Abt’s mobile electronics department today!
