CAN YOU UPGRADE YOUR STOCK CARPLAY?
If you feel your CarPlay in-car entertainment is outdated, sluggish, or feels lacking from using the stock version that it came in, it¡¯s because you are not getting the whole potential of what your large touchscreen display is capable of. One good option is to replace the entire head-unit, and swap it out with an expensive one with all the latest features. It¡¯s a tedious job that may require an experienced technician to dismantle your whole dashboard, and will probably take half a day to install. Definitely not a DIY project for the weak of heart, not to mention that you will most likely void your warranty. Today, we offer the CarPC Streambox.
It’s super simple device to hugely upgrade your car’s entertainment system, minus the absurd cost and headaches.
WHY GET A CARPC STREAMBOX?
CarPC Streambox offers a plain-and-simple solution to upgrade your existing dashboard entertainment system with CarPlay to something that has everything you will ever want from a top-end dashboard audio and entertainment unit replacement but without the hassles of installation and set up, costs only a fraction of a full head-unit replacement, and only takes a just few seconds to get up and running. What¡¯s more is that, CarPC Streambox has full 4G connectivity, which means it has all the high-speed data and phone calling capabilities. It also boasts of an HDMI port for high definition output.
In short, it’s a completely wireless internet-connected car computer that can make phone calls.

HOW DIFFERENT IS IT FROM AN ANDROID PHONE?
Streambox is specifically designed to be used as an instant upgrade to a factory car stereo. This frees up your phone so you don¡¯t have to share resources if you don¡¯t want to. It uses its own built-in GPS system so there¡¯s no need for a separate dashboard module.
4G CONNECTIVITY With fast and reliable mobile network connectivity, Streambox makes high-definition videos stream smoother, allows faster app downloads, makes real-time road information when using Maps lag-free.
FULLY INDEPENDENT OF YOUR SMARTPHONE
If you¡¯re the type who doesn¡¯t like to keep connecting your phone each time you get in the car, Streambox is for you. No more fumbling around to find your phone in your pocket, and fiddling with it when you already need to be driving. You used to do this each and every time you get in the car, and can be a real pain sometimes, if not always. Now, with Streambox, everything you need is already in there and setup, ready to take commands the minute you start the car.
MAKE PHONE CALLS FROM THE CAR
Streambox is fully independent from your smartphone, use a 3G/4G SIM card on the Streambox to make phone calls right from your car¡¯s head unit, even with apps running entirely separate from your smartphone accounts. Can¡¯t remember where your smartphone is? Call it from the car stereo! WIRELESSLY INTEGRATES WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE
When you pair it with your smartphone app, be it Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, all the functionalities that come along with it are carried over to the screen, all settings and applications installed on your mobile¡¯s car app. What’s more, Streambox only makes use of what you need. The minute the smartphone is disconnected, all your previous settings will remain untouched. Perfect when someone else is using the car and they have their own preferences and playlists different from you. Best of all, no additional wires.
HANDS-FREE VOICE CONTROL
Streambox has Google Assistant, so you can enjoy hands-free operation via voice commands. Say ¡°Ok Google¡± to launch apps, send messages, make phone calls, play music, ask questions, enable and disable Bluetooth, and a whole lot more. This makes your car feel a whole lot more like a companion.
GET SPLIT-SCREEN CONTROL
Multi-tasking does not have to be just one screen at a time. Having 2 apps running literally side-by-side on your car’s display makes full use of the large screen that your car already has. It makes perfect sense. You want your map navigation always available to you even while your passenger is choosing a music playlist, or while sending a message to someone to tell them you¡¯re on your way.
GET FULL ANDROID 9 WITH GOOGLE PLAY
One of the biggest features of CarPC Streambox, is that unlike regular CarPlay, it gives you the freedom to download any app found on the Google Playstore. There¡¯s close to 2million apps to choose from!
