OXNARD, Calif., (October 31, 2006) — Scosche Industries, an innovator of mobile electronic products and accessories for the aftermarket, announces its new OE (original equipment) integration interfaces. Scosche is now offering two types of OE interfaces: Radio Replacement Interfaces and Auxiliary Input Interfaces. Both of these interfaces allow consumers to choose an aftermarket upgrade for their vehicles.
According to Kas Alves, vice president, sales and marketing, Scosche Industries, “we introduced our first interfaces earlier this year, and they have proven to be a useful and necessary accessory for anyone installing an aftermarket unit in many newer vehicles. Our interfaces demonstrate Scosche’s leadership in aftermarket and OEM vehicle research and development. We are committed to developing accessories that ease installations and increase profit for the aftermarket industry.”
Scosche is expanding their OEM Integration product line with the introduction of eight new interfaces at SEMA this year. Scosche’s interfaces provide a viable solution for an aftermarket upgrade for newer vehicles. These unique interfaces are researched and designed to either replace the factory radio when upgrading to an aftermarket head-unit or add auxiliary inputs for any external audio device allowing greater control and consumer choices for an aftermarket installation.
Scosche’s Radio Replacement Interfaces will allow the factory radios in vehicles to be replaced by any aftermarket head-unit without losing any vehicle serviceability features. Typical to many newer vehicles, ACC power is lost when the factory head-unit is removed. Scosche’s Radio Replacement Interfaces eliminate these challenges faced by installers by communicating on the vehicle’s BUS network for real-time control applications. These interfaces maintain the original integrity of important diagnostic and safety systems within the vehicle.
Scosche will introduce three Radio Replacement Interfaces at SEMA this year. The DCCR03SR is designed specifically for 2004-2007 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles with CAN Bus protocol. The interface retains the factory amplifiers, provides VSS, parking brake, reverse light and illumination for the aftermarket installation. The DCGM19SR is designed for 2000-2005 Cadillac, Seville, deVille and El Dorado. The interface retains the factory chime reminders with or without and OnStar system and Bose radio system. The DCGM20SR will fit any 2003-2006 Cadillac CTS and SRX vehicles. The interface retains all factory reminders and 12volt accessories. Scosche’s Radio Replacement Interfaces will range from $120-$200.
Scosche’s Auxiliary Input Interfaces will allow integration with a factory head-unit enabling connectivity with an external audio or video source. Scosche’s Auxiliary Input Interfaces are designed for the discriminating consumer who wants to add additional components to their vehicle’s system without removing the factory radio and its functions. The Auxiliary Input Interfaces comes with RCA inputs and cables for a simple installation.
Scosche will present five Auxiliary Input Interfaces at SEMA beginning with the AXCR2 for 2004-20076 Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles. This interface boasts two auxiliary inputs to connect to two external devices. The AXFD2 is designed for 2005-2007 Ford radios and has one auxiliary input. The AXNN interface will fit any 2003-2006 Nissan or Infiniti vehicle and features two auxiliary inputs. The AXMAZ for 2004-2006 Mazda vehicles has two auxiliary inputs or one aux in and one CD changer port. The AXHA2 will fit any 2003-2007 Honda vehicles and also feature two auxiliary inputs or one aux in and one CD changer port. Scosche’s Auxiliary Input Interfaces will retail at $149.00
All of Scosche’s OE Integration Interfaces will be available at specialty retailers across the country.
