Audiovox Announces Factory Radio Integration Products Compatibility With IPhone 5 And IOS6

Stock quotes in this article: VOXX

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Audiovox Electronics Corporation (AEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX), announces that the Audiovox Driven by DICE MediaBridge and Universal 200 OE Integration products work with the new iPhone 5 and iOS6 running on older iPhones.  The DICE Electronics Engineering Team completed the testing and validation within hours of receiving the iPhone 5. 

This compatibility is the first to market in the OE Integration category and underscores the benefit of having a product design based on USB digital architecture. The MediaBridge and Universal 200 products do not require the use of an Apple Lightning to 30PIN adapter.

Although USB connectors can be found on a variety of competitive OE Integration products, few of them support the USB digital architecture required to communicate with an iPhone 5 through the new Lightning to USB cable. The iPhone 5 Lightning connector cable is a digital connection that delivers only digital audio and control protocol.

The MediaBridge kits deliver plug and play integration for selected factory radios that take advantage of new iOS 6 features. Enabling Siri Voice Control in the car allows drivers to have total voice control over their music playback including asking for a song, artist, playlist or even the genre. Hands free texting is now possible with MediaBridge. A driver can dictate and send text messages and e-mails. A new incoming text message can be read back by Siri as well.

iOS6 allows drivers to have more voice activated capabilities that further enhance the safety and convenience with hands free control of many features.  Drivers can launch music apps (Pandora, Livio, Spotify etc), turn-by-turn navigation, finding and routing to POI's and more. 

The MediaBridge 1500 product is compatible with select models of Acura, Audi, BMW, Honda, Infiniti, Lexus, Mini, Nissan, Scion, Toyota and VW vehicles. MSRP: $299.99

The Audiovox, Driven by Dice brand is marketed by Audiovox Electronics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX).
