New "Toronto 420 BT" and "San Francisco 320" 1-DIN Car Radios From Blaupunkt
With its new "Toronto 420 BT" model, Blaupunkt provides for seamless and straightforward connectivity of all mobile devices to a car radio. iPhone and iPod certified, the unit is particularly connectively-friendly, offering Bluetooth, a USB slot, an audio input on the front of the unit, the SD card reader behind the detachable front panel, and a CD player. There is an additional USB slot on the rear of the radio. External devices – such as smartphones, mass storage devices or MP3 players – can be quickly and easily connected to the radio. Among the key criteria in the development of this radio was intuitive ease of use amid a vast array of functions, a high-quality sound and a great design with a solid finish.
Blaupunkt Toronto 420 BT
Thanks to Bluetooth, not only can the owner of a "Toronto 420 BT" stream music from his smartphone but also phone hands-free via the integrated microphone and use the existing car speakers. In fact, it's possible to pair up to five Bluetooth devices at the same time. Two function buttons are available for accepting and ending calls on the radio front panel. Thanks to "Phonebook Access Profile" (PBAP), the driver can synchronize the mobile phonebook with up to 1000 entries and, if the caller is listed, can see who is calling on the radio display. The highlight: For all those who occasionally don't want to listen to any music while driving, phone calls can be accepted even if the "Toronto 420 BT" is switched off completely. As soon as there is an incoming call, it immediately switches on automatically and the phone call can be accepted in the usual manner. Once the call is finished, the device automatically goes back into sleep mode – until the next phone call. If desired, an external microphone in the vehicle interior can be connected via an additional microphone input on the rear of the unit.
And it's good to know you don't have to sacrifice any ease of use for high connectivity: The large 15-character display always ensures that you're in control while you make your music selection or change the settings swiftly and accurately using the second control knob. In this, the separate volume adjuster on the left-hand side is always available in parallel, which is safe and practical – for instance when fine-tuning the 3-band equalizer or making an individual preselection of the next song you want to listen to.
The new mid-range from Blaupunkt: Two new 1-DIN car radios for seamless connectivity of all mobile devices / "Toronto 420 BT" with Bluetooth, AUX in, USB slot, SD card slot and CD drive / Audio streaming and hands-free function / Intuitive operation with superior functionality and high-quality design.
Also being introduced in the market is the "San Francisco 320" radio, identical to the "Toronto 420 BT", but without Bluetooth. The great sound on both head units is provided by a powerful 4 x 50 watt amplifier, a flexibly-adjustable 3-band equalizer, along with a high-quality tuner for FM, AM (MW, LW). And they didn't forget to provide for a perfect expansion option for the overall system with a 4-channel preamp out for driving external amplifiers, along with an additional adjustable subwoofer out with variable volume level and frequency. This is flanked by the following interfaces: two USB slots (front and rear), SD slot for SDHC/SD/MMC and AUX in (3.5 mm jack).
Both radios have a detachable front panel, handle WMA and MP3 files, and feature "Made for iPhone" and "Made for iPod" certification. This provides the user with the option of directly controlling his iPhone or iPod or even charging a smartphone or similar devices via USB. The delivery contents include a case for the front panel, a user manual in 16 languages, mounting material and an antenna connection adapter.
The new Blaupunkt "Toronto 420 BT" radio is available from dealers starting in July 2012 at a suggested retail price of 159.00 Euros. The "San Francisco 320" costs 129.00 Euros.
