Accessories to Pair With your PE Series Stereo

XTRONS new PE Series, with its powerful octa-core processor and solid state hard drive, is ready for anything you can throw at it. Apart from being a leading car stereo, it can be the centre of a whole galaxy of infotainment options in your dashboard. With unprecedented speed and intelligence, the entire series has loads of powerful features, just waiting to make your journey better. 

We covered the incredible new features of the PE Series units HERE. If you’re interested in installing one in your car, you may also be pleased to know that this isn’t the end of the story. The series is compatible with a range of up-to-the-minute accessories, extending the flexibility and function of your new stereo even further.

Cameras for Peace of Mind

It’s of course crucial to focus on the road ahead when behind the wheel. But no one has eyes in the back of their head. A reversing camera can help you squeeze your car into the tight spaces in that busy car park, or help you watch for unpredictable kids and animals when leaving your drive in the morning. A simple installation, along with true HD compatibility, means that if you can’t have eyes in the back of your head, at least your car can!

On the business end of your dashboard, a dash cam can be a great addition. Often considered de rigueur for professional drivers, a dash cam records your journey on a continuous loop, meaning you have access to proof of what happened on your drive. This is incredibly useful when establishing fault in the unfortunate event of an accident. Indeed, it can even bring your car insurance premiums down by up to 15% on average. A clever move. 

Get All The Information You Need 

While the PE Series is more than capable in the entertainment department, it is no slouch when it comes to the “info” side of infotainment either. With a couple of carefully chose accessories, you have access to data you would normally need to visit a mechanic to get.

A simple OBD2 scanner provides you with error codes from your engine. Simply connect your smartphone over Bluetooth, and using a relevant app you can have access to the litany of codes that tell your mechanic what’s happening underneath your bonnet. As any motorist knows, even getting an electrical fault diagnosed can run into three figures, so this is an incredibly useful feature to have. It’s useful to know the severity of a problem, and whether you should be pulling over instantly, or whether it can wait til later. A word of warning however - ignore warning codes at your peril! 

On another note, it’s important both for safety and comfort that your tyres are in good condition. Fuel economy also suffers if your tyres aren’t properly inflated. For these reasons, we recommend installing a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) if you car doesn’t already have one. Simply attach the sensors directly to your wheels, and they’ll send information to the dongle over Bluetooth, and so your head unit, giving you real-time data about tyre pressure and temperature. The sensors will warn you if anything is wrong, and you can fix it at the next available opportunity. Clean, safe and hassle-free!

Audio Entertainment Of All Types

Call us old-fashioned, but we believe a car stereo should have outstanding audio. Thankfully, the PE Series delivers on that front as well. The entire series, as with all XTRONS products, uses the best industry standard equipment, and the high quality radio chips and amplifiers here guarantee you great sound and strong radio signals. The built in digital sound processing (DSP) means you can change EQ curves, bass response and more to suit your tastes and what you want to listen to.

If traditional radio just doesn't provide enough options, you can easily add a whole world of channels with a DAB+ receiver. This simple dongle plugs into your stereo and gives access to countless digital radio channels. Whether you want the latest news, in-depth opinion, radio drama or niche music programming, you’re sure to find it out there on the digital airwaves.

If your car speakers could do with an upgrade, it’s incredibly easy to connect your PE Series unit to a new amplifier. The built-in USB port can easily be turned into an RCA out for audio units, or an HDMI out for screens and hard drives, using a bespoke adapter from XTRONS. Simple and struggle-free. 

Smartphone Connectivity

Using your smartphone on the road used to be a dangerous thing to do. These days however, new methods of connectivity make syncing with your mobile phone utterly seamless. No need to take your eyes off the road to get the best out of your smartphone!

The PE Series features integrated CarAutoPlay for Apple phones, and Android Auto for Android phones, giving you access to all the features of your smartphone, right there on your car stereo. Screen Mirroring, voice commands and more - all are present and easy to use with these clever built-in features.

Furthermore, the customised Android 11 platform in all PE Series head units runs quickly and efficiently on an XTRONS customised UI, meaning you have everything you need at your fingertips. 

The PE Series can be fitted into many different car models. XTRONS has PE Series stereos for Fiat, Mazda, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Hyundai and many more marques. Shop the series here, and there might be the perfect thing to bring octa-core power into your car.
