So lets say you are looking for a car audio head unit. Yeah- there is now an App for that. You can pick the appropriate JVC head unit for your ride, find a dealer, have it installed, and then even go so far as to manage the firmware and apps within the head unit. Right on the screen of the display in the dash. Of course, the app can also recommend JVC amps and subs for you as well.
JVC is doing some cool stuff, such as the Road to Sturgis Tour , that shows the company thinks outside of the box of the traditional car audio company. Any manufacturer that puts hard rock as a priority is pretty cool in our books.
JVC MOBILE ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCHES ITS REVOLUTIONARY
“PLUGGED-IN” MOBILE APP
APP FOR iOS AND ANDROID FEATURES FULL PRODUCT LINE, DEALER LOCATOR, LIFESTYLE CONTENT, SOCIAL MEDIA CONNECTIVITY AND MORE
LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2013 – JVC Mobile Entertainment (www.mobile.jvc.com), a leading developer and manufacturer of sophisticated mobile, audio, and video products, today officially announced the release of their “Plugged-In” Mobile App.
The app is fully compatible with Apple iPhone and iPad, in addition to a wide range of Android devices, and is available for free. JVCME created the app with a view towards connecting consumers with the thousands of retailers located throughout the US.
“We are very excited to finally bring this app to our customers and dealers alike, and look forward to bridging the gap between both groups, one customer at a time,” said Chad Vogelsong, GM Marketing, JVCME. “We personally debuted the app with dozens of select dealers throughout the country on our recent U.S. Plugged-In Tour and the positive response was tremendous.”
JVC Mobile Entertainment’s “Plugged-In” App allows users to browse the latest in car audio technology, with detailed images and features on all JVC Mobile Entertainment products – In Dash CD/DMR, Navigation, Multimedia Receivers, Amplifiers, Subwoofers, Speakers and Accessories. This first-ever JVCME “mobile brochure” will allow consumers and retailers to conveniently compare and identify the full range of JVCME products – both the Regular and Arsenal lines are contained in the app.
The highly dealer-centric app also enables consumers to find a JVC Mobile dealer in their area, within a custom range of 5, 10 and 20 miles, by simply entering their zip code. Users can then directly contact dealers through their phone by placing a call and/or locating the dealer on their maps application. Special dealer-specific promotions, news and offers will also appear in the detail for each dealer.
Exclusive Content & Social Media.
With the “Plugged-In” App, viewers can now view the full TURN ME ON video series featuring the hottest bands (Halestorm, All American Rejects, Buckcherry, Papa Roach and more), and of course the TURN ME ON girls.
