Avoid 6 points and a £200 fine by upgrading your van’s radio.
At Enhance we don’t only work on cars. We offer a variety of upgrades on vans, including:
One of our suppliers has 2 new radio fitting kits available for the Renault Master, Vauxhall Movano and Nissan NV400.
By upgrading your stereo we can give you the latest connectivity using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
As well as being able to make phone calls, listen to music and dictate messages you can also view your chosen navigation map on the radio screen.
There are hundreds of different radios available, so we’d recommend you give us a call to discuss the features you’d like to get from the radio.
The image below is an example of a Vauxhall Movano which we installed an Apple CarPlay-compatible unit in.
Some features to think about when choosing your new radio:
- CD player – a lot of radios are now “mechless” meaning they don’t have a CD input.
- Bluetooth for phone calls and music streaming is standard.
- DAB radio
- Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
- Wireless Apple or Android
- Built-in navigation
It’s illegal to touch your phone whilst driving. The Government website states:
It’s illegal to hold and use a phone, sat nav, tablet, or any device that can send or receive data while driving or riding a motorcycle.
For example, you must not text, make calls, take photos or videos, or browse the web.
The law still applies to you if you’re:
- stopped at traffic lights
- queuing in traffic
- supervising a learner driver
- driving a car that turns off the engine when you stop moving
- holding and using a device that’s offline or in flight mode
- Using devices hands-free
It is legal however to use devices with hands-free access, as long as you do not hold them at any time during usage. Hands-free access means using, for example:
- a Bluetooth headset
- voice command
- a dashboard holder or mat
- a windscreen mount
- a built-in sat nav
- The device must not block your view of the road and traffic ahead.
By upgrading your radio – you can legally and safely use your phone’s apps on the radio.
