Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Belmont, CA - Oct 26, 2016 - GROM Audio is pleased to announce the new release of their new product on Kickstarter for the Android user – a smart USB cable that provides the user full control over any music being played from the Android phone though the car stereo, easy and hassle-free.
“We decided to first launch on Kickstarter because we want it easily accessible to the everyday consumer. We are excited about this great new product and we want online communities to know.” – GROM’s spokesperson.
We decided to first launch on Kickstarter because we want it easily accessible to the everyday consumer. We are excited about this great new product and we want online communities to know.
Already through backers from Kickstarter, GROM Audio has created an alternative connector to their Micro USB Cable solution – the USB Type-C: the newest connector for some of the latest device models.
Wirelinq is available for a limited time only on Kickstarter at an exclusive pricing until November 2016. After that, it will be available for pre-order at full retail price on GROMAudio.com.
To date, many cars 2008 and newer are equipped with the USB port that connects users’ iPhone or USB flash drive to the factory stereo. For the Android user, this connectivity is limited at best. With Wirelinq, any Android user with phones having Jelly Bean OS 4.1 and above will be able to have full music integration with their car stereo.
Song titles, artists, album information will be displayed on the car stereo screen and the phone at the same time. The user will be able to see cover art on the car stereo screen (when applicable). As the Android phone syncs directly with the car stereo, the user will be able to use the touch screen to browse any music by Albums, Artists, and Songs, so long as it is supported by the car stereo.
This plug-and-play cable technology makes connection with the Android phone easy and portable. The user also gets high definition digital sound. Most music formats are supported, including MP3, OGG, WMA, lossless WAV and lossless FLAC.
Currently, Wirelinq has a smart chip with GROM’s proprietary algorithm inside its USB connector. It uses the Android Open Accessry 2.0 (AOA 2.0) protocol.
DashLinQ – GROM Audio’s dashboard application, available on Google Play – is recommended for a full integration experience. DashlinQ provides easy and safe use of the phone while driving. It features Web Radio, Spotify, Google Music and Local music plugins (as stored on the phone) and allows for seamless car stereo integration.
Wirelinq will be available with two types of connector- reversible Micro USB or USB Type-C that provides seamless high definition connectivity while charging the phone at the same time. Made with a nylon braid, the modern-looking cable is extremely durable and tangle-free.
