When your car has a good radio head unit, driving will be very exciting. Therefore, I had my 2013 Buick Regal factory radio changed. Last month, I installed a 9.7″ Tesla screen radio to the car, that really makes my drive more comfortable and convenient.
What are the advantages?
Firstly, the new radio comes a big vertical screen, we can see the information very clear. All the operation can be finished at few seconds via finger touch.
It’s able to provide different entertainment. For example, you can listen to FM/AM radio channels, play Bluetooth music, watch 1080P videos, access the Internet via WIFI or 4G network etc. Your drive will be never bored with this multifunctional Android radio.
On the other hand, this 2013 Buick Regal radio supports Apple Carplay/Android Auto. With this function, you can connect your phone to the radio and use phone applications like map, music, phone book and more on the radio screen.
Another powerful function is that it can support rear view camera. That’s to say, when we install a backup camera to the car and connect it to the radio, the radio will automatically display rearview images every time when we reverse and park the car. For those who always have troubles in parking a car, this function must be very helpful.
