Adding GPS functionality to your multimedia system doesn’t have to mean spending hundreds of dollars on a new in-dash receiver. If your current multimedia system has a monitor, a compatible GPS add-on adapter may be all you need. These adapters give your car all the capabilities of a full-scale GPS navigator in a compact size. It doesn’t take hours to install, either — just connect the adapter to your multimedia system and mount the module under the seat or in the trunk
There are several reasons to use an add-on GPS navigation system. An adapter is an excellent choice if you have an older multimedia receiver or just bought a vehicle that doesn’t include navigation. It’s also an option if an in-dash video receiver you’re looking at doesn’t have GPS, but is perfect in every other way. You’ll have the tools you need to find your way anywhere with these simple add-ons.
OnlineCarStereo.com has a growing selection of plug-and-play GPS adapters that add navigation without completely redoing your interior. They typically connect using either the source receiver or the monitor’s video input. Most add-on navigation units are designed to work with specific brands or series of receivers. However, you can find universal GPS modules that work with pretty much any multimedia system. Brand-specific adapters generally cost less while universal models have more versatility and can be switched from car to car. Many of these units come with a remote control so you can operate the GPS without struggling with integrating the adapter into the in-dash controls.
