The All New iRoc for iPhone

iRoc - The Ultimate Smart Phone Accessory

The iRoc, new from Jackson Electronics, is a revolutionary head-unit that integrates your smart phone into a mobile entertainment system. This single DIN stereo is universal and will fit into almost any vehicle on the market today. To use the iRoc, simply place your iPhone or iTouch in the cradle, and use it just as you would with your standard head-unit. But this is not your standard head-unit. The iRoc is loaded with features that will make driving your car a whole new experience.

Understanding The Difference

What separates this in-dash stereo from others are the style, design, and the simplicity in which you control aspects of your music and videos. Instead of learning all new stereo controls and sequences of buttons to push, take advantage of the controls you already know with your iPhone. All of the information you need is displayed directly on your phones screen, and with a free download of the iRocEQ app from the iTunes App Store you can adjust the equalization and other aspects of your music. If you have a cell data plan, you can access internet streaming apps such as Netflix, YouTube, or Pandora.

Features and Benefits

Don’t worry about removing your protective phone case, the iRoc dock is designed to cradle your phone while the case is still attached. There is a built-in microphone on the front of the stereo, which allows you to make and receive phone calls without ever picking up your phone. If you already have amplifiers or are looking to expand your audio system in the future, you may utilize the 3 sets of RCA outputs for connecting the Front, Rear and Subwoofer channels to a car amplifier or two, or three. When your iPhone is docked on the iRoc, it will receive a constant charge to ensure your phone does not die when you are using it later.

Something To Consider

There are many more features to this stereo than what has been explained here, and you may check them all out by visiting the product page of the Jackson Electronics iRoc. If you own an iPhone and are looking into upgrading your stereo, take the iRoc into consideration. It will make your life much simpler, and allow you to entertain yourself and your passengers without the need for a top of the line receiver.
