Bosch worked in close cooperation with Smart to develop the “navigation/multimedia audio system” for more driving fun for the new fortwo vehicle generation.
The system features a 6.5-inch color touchscreen display with a flip panel and a digital twin tuner (with ARD2 chip set).
The system has been designed to offer optimum flexibility and makes it possible to play CDs or MP3 music files on the CD/DVD drive hidden behind the flip panel or to use an SD card slot, a USB slot or an AUX connection.
Hands-free operation and such main functions as call lists or the phonebook are automatically available as soon as the phone is connected via Bluetooth.
Bluetooth audio streaming (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile – A2DP) also allows the wireless transmission of audio files from the cell phone to the audio systems, where they can then be played back as music.
The uncomplicated destination input using voice control is a highlight. Users can just say the postal code or city and the street and house number and the route calculation function will leap into action. This system offers three different route options (fast, short and economical).
