For music-loving drivers who want complete control of the soundtrack to their journeys over the Bank Holiday and beyond, Halfords has reduced the price of the Sony MEX-N4000BT to just £99.

The Sony in-car radio is the perfect passenger for road trips or commuting as it likes all the same music you do – connecting you seamlessly with your music library on the move with just one touch of your compatible smartphone thanks to the latest in NFC technology (near field communication).

Halfords Car Audio Buyer Leslie Davies says: “Lengthy or complicated procedures for syncing wireless devices like smartphones with in-car entertainment systems can be frustrating.

“This Sony unit enables drivers to stream their choice of music wirelessly, whether via downloading music, streaming services such as Spotify or internet radio, and allows hands-free calling in an easy-to -use package.”

Full iPod, iPhone and Android compatibility ensure motorists can pair the Sony with their favourite music player as well as charge their device while they cruise along with the in-built USB socket.

Listening to your favourite road tunes is made even better with the free Remote app, allowing you to adjust your sound settings for optimum sound using the touchscreen on your smartphone while it sits comfortably in your phone holder, whilst an Advanced Sound Engine provides sound quality that betters many more expensive units.

Leslie Davies added: “Despite the fact that streaming music from smartphones in the home is now common-place, even the most tech savvy customers often don’t realise they can easily and inexpensively upgrade their in-car audio to enjoy their personal playlists on the move.

“The N4000 offers all the attributes drivers need to make their life on the move more pleasant and convenient.”

The Sony MEX-N4000BT is available at £99.00 (usually £119.99) in store and online for a limited period. To find out more about the range of products that Halfords offers or place an order using our ‘click & collect’ service visit
