USB-2 USB/MP3 Adapter and phone charger
The USB-2 from Aurora Design joins the only fully integrated line of products in the industry allowing your classic radio to operate just as if it had been designed and built in the 21st century. Now you can have hundreds, thousands, or even ten’s of thousands of your favourite songs right at your fingertips.
USB FLASH Drives, sometimes referred to as “thumb drives”, have become the ubiquitous format for carrying around audio files. An extremely inexpensive USB drive has the capability to hold literally thousands or tens of thousands of songs, audio books, podcasts, etc. With the USB-2, these USB drives can now be used in your classic or hot rod’s radio as easily as your modern car. Just plug the USB drive into the cable on your radio and it will switch over and start playing. Of course since all Aurora Design products are engineered to work seamlessly together, you can control such things as next/previous, play/pause and random/sequential playback right from the existing controls on your radio. Unlike clunky aftermarket solutions, everything is automatic!
The USB-2 is smart enough so that if you stop to refuel or grab lunch, when you turn the radio back on, it will continue from where it left off. Many cheaper solutions will return to the first song and start over again which can get very annoying.
The USB-2 can also be used to charge your phone, mp3 player, or tablet, and unlike cheap solutions that plug into the cigarette lighter and only work on 12 volt negative ground cars, since the USB-2 is integrated into the radio, you can charge your USB devices in 6 volt and positive ground cars as well! With the USB-2, no one is left out.
The USB-2 was engineered to work seamlessly with all Aurora Design products, so you can now create the ultimate classic radio with AM/FM 180W digital radio, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands free phone, and USB/MP3 playback! Once again Aurora Design products are causing a paradigm shift in how the industry views classic radios and what is possible.
Designed to meet automotive OEM and SAE performance specifications, the USB-2 represents a no compromise design. All critical components are full automotive OEM grade parts, not lower cost, lower quality parts designed for aftermarket/consumer products. Every aspect of the design and operation of the USB-2, no matter how insignificant was scrutinised, resulting in a product that performs beyond the expectations of even the most demanding user.
