The Blaupunkt Dakota BP800Play is Your Solution to Traffic Boredom (w/ Brochure)

Staying connected is one of the “must-haves” for Filipino motorists. With more time stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, infotainment has become integral to help pass the hours-long crawl. And while some are content with the usual AM/FM, what about those who play their personalized Spotify playlist or rely Waze or Google Maps for directions?

The answer is the new Blaupunkt Dakota BP800Play head unit. At P 21,700, it’s a full-featured head unit that alleviates traffic boredom. With easy-to-tap icons and a 6.8-inch capacitive touchscreen, it doesn’t just offer the usual radio and video playback functionality, but it also incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto straight out of the box.

Smartphone connectivity aside, the Dakota BP800Play is compatible with the ABS-CBN TV Plus, allowing owners to watch their favorite TV stations on the go. For those who regularly ferry children, it can also connect to rear- or overhead-mounted monitors to keep the young ones entertained.

And good news to vehicles equipped with steering wheel controls: this Blaupunkt system doesn’t just offer a plug-and-play harness (no splicing), but it can also “learn” commands to keep all functionalities intact.

For those who plan on listening to plain music, the Dakota BP800Play accepts devices connected via its 3.5-mm jack or USB (including even portable HDDs). And with a 4x50-watt built-in amplifier, the Dakota BP800Play unlocks a fuller-range of sound even with the stock OE speakers.

Finally, the Linux-based OS makes it impervious to virus and malware compared to Android or Windows-based head units; and because it allows for user-installed software updates (via USB), it’s easy to keep it updated with the latest video or audio CODECS. It’s guaranteed to run smoothly for the long haul.

Celebrating the launch of the DakotaBP800Play, for a limited time, it comes bundled with a reverse camera.

The Blaupunkt Dakota BP800Play is now available at selected Blade outlets or online through PartsPro. For more information, contact Blaupunkt Philippines through its official Facebook page or through +63 917 575 4812.
