Make your trip a smooth one with some of our entertainment options and accessories to keep everyone happy.

From a brand new Android head unit, with CarPlay and Android Auto integration, to headrest monitors to keep your backseat passengers happy, there is everything you could possibly need to get your car 'adventure-ready' for 2023!

DQS112L - Premium Infotainment

The DQS112L, part of our PQS Series, is an incredibly high-quality stereo designed to fit any car with a Single DIN factory radio. A powerful Android 11 platform with built-in DSP, CarPlay/Android Auto and navigation, it’s your perfect companion for discovering roads less travelled.

Built-in CarPlay & Android Auto make syncing up your smartphone easy, and the upgraded components throughout the unit, including its rotatable QLED display make it a joy for any use case.

HM141A - QHD Android Media Player

If your backseat passengers get restless while you eat the miles, then a headrest screen might be what you need. The perfect thing to alleviate boredom, the HM141A is easy to install and provides you with crisp 1440p video, built-in speakers and a suite of inputs and outputs for connecting devices. Add in easy screen-mirroring for your smartphone and a clever Android operating system, and you have an amazing add-on for your passengers, unthinkable just a few years ago.

With gyro sensors and adaptive portrait mode, this unit allows you to watch videos, play games and scroll through the socials with ease!

CM158TA - Immersive Android Roof-Mounted Player

If you have a larger car, such as a people carrier or minibus, you can still have great movies and entertainment to please your passengers. A roof mounted player is a great option for this, and the CM136A is about as good as they get. With Android functionality, an industry-leading IPS screen and hugely impressive processing power, it will keep everyone quiet and happy on long journeys.

USBDAB04 - DAB+ Tuner with USB connection

While modern cars tend to come with digital radios built-in, it really wasn’t very long ago that brand new cars came without one. But never fear! We have just the thing to help. If you want access to digital radio programming on your road trips, this XTRONS tuner attaches with a simple USB connection, and so is compatible with any head unit with a USB socket. In no time at all you have access to dozens of channels of music, talk, sport and entertainment, ensuring you and your passengers are never bored.

TPMS07 - Tyre Pressure Sensors

When using the road, safety is always paramount. A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is a huge upgrade in road safety, giving you information about your tyre pressure and temperature in real time. Improperly inflated tyres cause all kinds of problems with handling, braking and fuel consumption, so knowing what’s happening is a huge benefit. The sensors simply attach to each wheel and transmit data to your stereo using the neat attachment, giving you all the peace of mind you could possibly need.

These are just a few potential options to help you enjoy your new years road trip. If you’d like to browse the XTRONS range and find something even more fitting for your car, we have something for almost any make and model. With the perfect in-car entertainment installed and ready, the open road awaits you this year! So spread your wings, get behind the wheel and enjoy the open road.
