GROM Audio integrates Android with GROM-USB2P

As Google's Android operating system continues to increase in popularity, GROM Audio continues  to bring customers the best quality adapters to fit their needs. Known as the first car audio company to deliver direct connection of Android smartphones or tablets to factory car stereos, GROM Audio strives to give drivers the ability to use their mobile devices on-the-go.

The GROM-USB2P car kit gives drivers the ability to not only listen to their own music library straight from their smartphone or tablet, but it also gives users the best sound quality through direct digital connection. This direct digital connection creates high-quality sound by keeping the digital signal intact until it is converted to an analog signal. This means no unnecessary manipulations are made to the music signals, creating little to no interference.

This GROM Audio interface integrates Bluetooth technology as well (via the Bluetooth Dongle, GROM-BTD) giving drivers the ability to talk on the phone hands-free while driving. Because safety on the road is the most important factor of driving, this feature allows users keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road at all times.

It is GROM Audio's goal to continue to bring Android users more car audio integration options and the GROM-USB2P is only the beginning of its Google compatible multimedia systems. Please check the GROM Audio website for compatible Android devices and stay tuned for more GROM products suited for the Android operating system.

GROM Audio's: What is your favorite app, contest winners announced!

Submissions are in and smartphone users have weighed in on their favorite smartphone functionalities and applications. From GPS capabilities to music streaming, users submitted countless entries informing fellow GROM Audio fans of their favorite applications.

With the convenience the Internet at our finger tips, smartphone users have the ability to access much more than their favorite playlist or Internet radio station—now users can play games, read the news, or even watch TV. These powerful devices allow people to maintain their busy lives, while on-the-go, giving people more mobility than ever. 

Our three winners introduced unique ways they use their smartphones, sharing how apps they use regularly, impact their lives.

1st Place: Jordan Cambra

My favorite app has to be C:GEO. It's an open source app that uses your built-in GPS and locating services to help you find geo-caches! Geo-caching is a global hide and seek game where you use GPS coordinates to find hidden containers placed around the environment. If you live in an urban area like me, then there are handfuls of geo-caches within walking distance. However it is more fun to drive to less familiar places first and then start hunting. Of course I also use my phone for music with my GROM audio input, it makes the drive to my geo-caching destination just as much fun as the activity itself.

2nd Place: Peter P.
MINT because I can link my financial accounts and check it all on my phone. I can edit each transaction and do budgets. It really keeps me in check with my spending. It also gives me alerts when I have a bill coming up.

3rd Place: Chris M.
Channel app. Pro version. Watch just about any tv show or movie without popups. Works great with vizo co-star and after downloading The vplayer app and adjusting the settings works great on my galaxy nexus and nexus 7 as well. It destroys Netflix and free except for the pro version of the app which allows you to view movies.

The first place winner receives a $45 Amazon gift card, while second place receives a GROM t-shirt/cap combo and third a GROM t-shirt. Stay tuned to gromaudio.com and facebook.com/gromaudio for our next contest!
