-Hi, I'm Wayne Cunningham with CNET taking a close look Dodge's new Entertainment Center here in the 2011 charge.
Now, the first thing you will notice about the system, it's got a massive screen.
This is 8.4 inches and there's on plastic buttons around the outside.
Dodge filled the function buttons in a menu across the bottom here.
Now, if I push the navigation button, I get a really familiar screen.
This is actually Garmin navigation software that Dodge integrated into the new
Now, this is pretty good stuff.
It's got really good guidance.
If I switch to this plus button here, that gives me SIRIUS travel link.
From the SIRIUS travel link, I get movie listings, sports scores, gas prices and weather, and that stuff is integrated with the navigation system.
So, by finding the gas price that I like, I can actually just hit that button and will send me address to that gas station to the navigation system.
Now, if I go to the stereo, I hit this player icon here and I get a lot of digital audio sources.
I get Bluetooth streaming audio.
I get USB drive.
I got iPod integration and even SD card.
Now I've got USB drive actually plugged into the car right now.
And this system used the integrated Gracenote database [unk] the MP3 tracks that I go on there and now I can browse that tracks on that drive by album, genre, artist, all the normal things you find in an MP3 player.
With the phone system there,
I can get an on screen keypad and I can actually just manually enter a number or the system also copy the phone book from my third phone to the system and I can search through and find any name on there.
I can also use voice command to call a number just by getting the steering wheel button and saying, call Wayne Cunningham.
-Which phone for Wayne Cunningham would like to call?
-So the system actually found 3 numbers
associated with my name in the content [unk] and asked me which one of those I wanna call.
So, this system brings the [unk] and includes all the modern features you'd expect in car entertainment center with a nice big screen.
This has been a close look at Dodge's new Entertainment Center on here on the 2011 Charger.
