The Connected Car

Speaker: John Hayes, Vice President, Al & Ed’s Autosound

Most people who live in Southern California depend on a car, truck or SUV to get around. Many people spend hours every day in their vehicle. They do not know that their vehicle can be adapted to be safer, more convenient, and more fun to drive. Technological advances available in new cars today can be added to older vehicles, bringing them up to speed with the newest advances. John Haynes will inform you of the key things you can do to any vehicle to make it safer, to connect to your smartphone, and to make it more enjoyable to drive. From accident-avoidance systems to reverse cameras to parking assist sensors to Apple CarPlay, and to wireless charging: everything new in cars can be yours.
