GROM Adds Direct Android Connection for High-Quality Sound and Listening

Most Apple users have come accustom to countless products to adapt to their iPhones, iPads, or iPods. Companies, including GROM Audio, create iPod car adapters, auxiliary cables and/or Bluetooth devices allowing drivers the ability to listen to music in the car, make calls hands-free, connect to GPS and much

But what about Android users?

GROM Audio is the only car audio company to meet the growing demand for Android-compatible equipment to connect Google devices to your vehicle. The more people switch to the Android operating system, the more they will find that there is a clear lack of Android adapters to connect their devices to their vehicles. This is why GROM Audio has spent the last year on Android development, creating car audio adapters, which give Android users the same capabilities as as Apple users.

Through adapters such as the GROM-AND2, Android users have the ability to directly connect their phone or tablet to their vehicle. Then they have the same luxuries Apple users have, including the ability to connect wirelessly through Bluetooth, stream music through apps or listen to their own music library. These Android audio adapters also give drivers GPS capabilities and hands-free calling through Bluetooth, making being on-the-go so much easier!

GROM Audio creates Bluetooth audio adapters to give busy drivers the luxury of answering and making calls wirelessly and controlling their MP3 players (including Android music players and Apple devices) through Bluetooth wireless audio control (AVRCP).

These Bluetooth audio receivers not only make it easy to do business while you are making your commute, but they also create a safer driving experience on the road.

GROM Audio Aux Adapters for Cars Create Hands-free Calling for Users

The Best Aux and Bluetooth Adapter for your Car 

It is important for drivers to feel safe on the road and one of the easiest ways to do so is through hands-free calling. Bluetooth capabilities not only create the safety drivers are looking for, but also give them the ability to stream or enjoy their own music library wirelessly. Unfortunately, not all cars come equipped with Bluetooth capacities, which is why GROM Audio creates aux adapters for cars without these features.

Since drivers are looking for aux Bluetooth solutions for their vehicles, GROM Audio developed the GROM-BT3. These Bluetooth and auxiliary adapters are simple and affordable solutions for many car makes and models, giving drivers in-car Bluetooth hands-free calling and 3.5mm input for MP3 player and smartphone connection. The BT3 adapters give drivers an aux cable for their cars, allowing features that make the driving experience safer and more enjoyable.
