If your car isn’t new enough, I assure its stereo did not use the latest technology, maybe it’s still a button-operated audio. As an old car owner, I fully understand that most of time, the car stereo can’t meet our needs, especially it wasn’t the one with touchscreen, can’t watch video, can’t connect the phone, as well as can’t provide GPS navigation. So annoying!
I strongly realized that I must do something to stop the harassment, so I decided to replace the old car stereo in my 2012 Ford Focus. After replacing it, I am glad I made the right choice. Now at this post, I would like to share some experience with all of you.
