What are my options if the internal speakers are not loud enough?


You have the option of using the built in wireless FM transmitter to broadcast the audio from N.I.C.E. to your existing radio. There are 15 FM frequencies to choose from so you can get the best possible reception in your vehicle or area.You may also purchase the accessory audio output cable NAVAUDIO to connect to the AUX input of your existing source unit.
