Head Units & In-Dash Receivers
A head unit is the stereo that fits into your dash. Replacing the head unit in your car is not only the most convenient way to integrate your smartphone or mp3 player for use in your car, but it is often also the most affordable as well. Getting a head unit that easily integrates your devices into your car is an easy first step to getting the latest in new car technology without having to buy a new car. Even today, the premium factory receivers in new cars still can’t match the features and audio quality available in the aftermarket head units and receivers. Additional features may also come with your new receiver such as DVD, Bluetooth, Navigation, Pandora, music streaming, HD and Satellite Radio, and video.
Some units even feature Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. There are a wide range of models, options, and price points available so you can get the smartphone/mp3 player integration upgrade that makes the most sense for you. Check out a few of our models below and visit our store to see our entire selection of receivers.
In-Dash GPS Navigation
Lose the map! In-Dash GPS Navigation will save you time and wasted gas mileage by getting to your destination in the most efficient way. Most Navigation units are more than just a GPS and are designed as an entertainment system as well. We offer Navigation units with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for easy connection to your smartphone. So don’t get lost again, and check out Extreme Car Audio’s In-Dash GPS units today!
iPhones and iPods, Android Smartphones and MP3 players have made life so much easier and basically we can’t do life without them, and shouldn’t have to! Stay connected to your smartphone even inside your car and enjoy the ease of hands free texting and calling, streaming music or playing the stored music on your mobile device, and listen to HD and satellite radio. From simple adapter cables, to interfaces that allow you to control your device from your vehicle’s radio, we have the gear that will help you get connected.
Why Can’t I just Use my Cell Phone?
Using your phone in your hand while driving isn’t safe, and in most places it’s illegal. And what happens when an important call comes through? You have to make that crucial decision — ignore Mom and face her wrath, or get lost in the sketchy part of town. Yikes! Again, using cell phones for GPS is illegal in many states.
When your map and turn-by-turn directions are on a large screen that never moves from the dash and never changes perspective, there really isn’t a more convenient way to get where you need to go. No cell phone service? No problem!
Plus, for those of you who enjoy adventuring a little “off the beaten path”, the satellite technology behind in-dash navigation does not depend on a mobile internet or network connection of any sort… So even when your 4G phone gets little or no signal, you’re never lost!
Navigation is just the tip of the iceberg. Today’s in-dash navigation systems come with so many advanced features that you can’t really compare them to any other standalone device out there.

When you get navigation installed, what you’re really getting is a complete “infotainment solution” that is conveniently located where it should be: always safely within reach. Navigation in-dash is much more than just navigation! And, AS ALWAYS… Make sure you have a professional install your navigation unit. Your car is complex, so maybe chose a different DIY project and trust this one to professional installers like ours who will make sure your navigation system is installed correctly and safely the first time!
