Clarion Corporation of America Unveils Multiple New Marine-Grade Digital Media Source Systems at IBEX 2017

Clarion Corporation of America announced the introduction of three new ultra-rugged, specifically designed for marine applications. Clarion's powerful new CMS20, M608 and M508 multimedia source units are stylishly designed with an upscale look and feel, are packed full of connectivity options, and have been ruggedly engineered to endure years of marine use without ever skipping a beat. All three new models offer enhanced NMEA 2000 support for controlling of the source units' features from a boat's onboard multi-function display (MFD). The CMS20 is an IPX6 rated digital media powerhouse designed specifically for marine and powersports applications. The mechless two-piece system includes a compact black box for installation flexibility and a weather protected controller. The controller's innovative backlit dot matrix LCD display provides users with source and track information at a glance, and can be configured to show two, three or four lines of text based on viewing preference. The new CMS20 utilizes a 32-bit micro controller paired together with a 4.1 channel audio processor to deliver high-end performance and top quality sound. It is also equipped with 6 pre-amp outputs and features a powerful built-in amplifier that continuously monitors the system to maintain low distortion levels and optimize sound quality. Connectivity options include AM/FM/WB tuner, Bluetooth aptX, AUX-in, and USB for music stored on flash drives or smartphones and SiriusXM.

Clarion Corporation of America Launches Two New Apps for the Smart Access Platform Available on Subaru STARLINK Equipped Vehicles

Clarion Corporation of America announced the availability of two new apps available on the Smart Access platform for SUBARU STARLINK™ equipped vehicles. RightTrack™ Test Drive from Liberty Mutual Insurance, an app that monitors driving habits and provides drivers with tips on how to drive safer, helping them lower their insurance rates and improve their safe driving skills, will be available directly on the infotainment system screens of new and current vehicles featuring factory-installed systems equipped with Clarion's Smart Access cloud-based infotainment platform. Subaru is the first automotive manufacturer to offer the app on its Smart Access powered SUBARU STARLINK™ infotainment system, providing Subaru owners the ability to take advantage of Liberty Mutual's offerings. In addition to the RightTrack™ Test Drive app from Liberty Mutual, Clarion has also added the Quick Reference Guide, created by Tweddle, to its Smart Access platform specifically for future SUBARU STARLINK™ equipped vehicles. The Quick Reference Guide app is a digital version of the vehicle's original hardcopy quick reference guides that come standard in all new Subaru vehicles. The app features In-Vehicle Help (IVH) that provides an interactive, searchable, model-specific concierge to the infotainment touchscreen. Currently, the Quick Guide app includes EyeSight®, SUBARU STARLINK™ Infotainment, and a vehicle overview. While Subaru will continue to include paper versions of these guides in its vehicles, this is Subaru's first step toward going paperless.
