Scosche’s award winning controlFREQ car stereo receiver and app turns most smartphones into a touchscreen remote control and allows users to stream their favorite tunes from their phone or Bluetooth enabled device. The universally compatible receiver can also play music via a USB port, SD card slot, front AUX port, or iPod direct control in addition to the more common AM/FM RDS enabled tuner and CD player.
The controlFREQ App transforms a smartphone into a wireless touchscreen remote control and display for the car stereo. Users can easily change between tracks, optimize sound performance with integrated EQ presets, bass/treble and balance/fader controls, and quickly switch between various sources for a seamless media experience.
“No matter where you store your music the controlFREQ has you covered,” said Kas Alves, Executive Vice President Scosche Industries. “When you combine the flexibility to play music from nearly any source with an intuitive app you’re guaranteed to have a positive car audio listening experience.”
Passengers can take control and DJ inside or outside of the car with 33 foot wireless range. Drivers will enjoy crystal clear, hands-free calling with the controlFREQ’s built-in mic. The innovative receiver also features 30 programmable presets for storing your favorite radio stations and a CD player that supports CD-R, CD-RW and MP3 CD playback.
The controlFREQ stereo receiver is available at www.scosche.com for $139.99 and at other fine retailers nationwide. The controlFREQ app is available as a free download on the App Store and Google Play.
