Audio, Communications and Entertainment
Like most motoring enthusiasts the team at Nene Overland can get as much enjoyment out of the sound of the engine travelling down the open road as much as anyone. However it is made much better with a great soundtrack playing too.
The days of the simple FM radio are long gone, we are now connected in myriad ways and need to stay connected, entertained and in touch no matter where we are on the planet. For many vehicles that’s easy enough, they may never stray far from civilization, they never venture off the tarmac and the vehicles were probably designed from day one with a fully integrated audio system in mind. Certainly the latest Range Rover and Jeep Grand Cherokee models are not to be sniffed at with their magnificent surround-sound systems.
But what if you have a Defender? Or open top Wrangler? Or a Toyota Land Cruiser? Or even a restored Series Land Rover? Apart from being far from ideal for acoustics they were just never meant to be rivals for the local concert hall. But we can help you with all of this!
We can fit virtually any system to any vehicle depending on your requirements but have also created a few off-the-shelf packages that we know will work well with the kind of vehicles our customers usually drive.
Our Audio Team has over 20 years experience working solely on car audio and can install entertainment systems that offer truly exceptional levels of music fidelity and versatility. If you need to plug in a couple of smartphones, connect a sat-nav, add an iPad and even a CD multi-changer we can do all that. You want USB ports galore? Bluetooth connectivity? Hands-free operation and multi-zone output so that you can have different sounds in the front and rear? That’s all covered too.
And if you like your tunes hard and heavy we have the know-how to make you feel it in your bones rather than through the ears. Crisp, clear and as loud as is gets.
We haven’t forgetten about entertaining the kids either. Keeping them quiet in the back on a long road trip can make the whole journey a whole lot easier. It might be just a matter of adding extra 12v USB sockets in the back to charge their smartphones or iPads. It could be a fully integrated and roof-mounted DVD system that plays the film soundtrack through the rear speakers and lets you keep the radio on in the front. Whichever you think will work best for your next family outing we can help you.
We are now carrying out installs of our iPad mini dash pods to 2007+ Puma Defenders. TD5 Defender and Discovery options are also available as a special order item. The pod is available in satin black or any choice of leather covering to match your interior.
Linked to your sound system or fitted in conjunction with our Symphony Surround Sound System we can give you full screen vehicle information such as speed, engine temperature, RPM as well as fault code diagnosis on some set ups. You will be able to feed all of your stored entertainment, including music and film library, through the Defender head unit as well as utilise any of the various SAT NAV apps that are available for the iPad.
A stunning development that is a far better option than investing in Double-DIN head units which need lots of expensive work to relocate switches etc. The total cost, including fitting, buying the iPad and all the software to enable this great option will still give you change over the cost of Double-DIN installation!
Staying connected, particularly for those who work on the road or regularly travel for business, is an absolute must nowadays. Relying on your smartphone to keep you in touch with the office will eventually let you down as you skip between blackspots in your network’s coverage. We can install a system that will keep you connected no matter where you choose to go.
Our solutions start with a simple in-car wi-fi product that uses a mobile phone SIM card much like any ‘dongle’ but hard-wired to the vehicle so it will never run flat. Other systems take multiple SIMs so it will search the strongest signal from all the available networks and even latch onto any free wi-fi signals in the area if it can detect them. Ultimately the only way might be up! Satellite connectivity will keep you online 24/7 regardless of the ground network conditions or weather conditions! Voice, data and even VOIP are all possible as in-car fitment without taking up huge amounts of storage, it can all be hidden away and as inconspicuous as you require.
