Becker Mexico Car Stereo: a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Don’t let the decidedly old school design of this car radio fool you. Beneath its surface, the Becker Mexico 7948 radio is loaded with modern technology.

Becker Mexico 7948 Radio

While it might look like a radio from the 60’s or 70’s, the Becker Mexico has a plethora of tricks up its sleeve. The only clue of the beast that lurks within is the modern 13-color OLED screen, giving you an inkling that there’s more than meets the eye with this radio.

For starters, the Mexico has full voice-based GPS navigation capabilities in eight languages. It can play digital music files from CF, MMC, Microdrive and SD-Card formats or an iPod through an optional kit. Heck, it even has a built in voice-dial GSM-based mobile phone hands-free calling via Bluetooth. Oh yeah, it does still have an FM radio for you purists out there.

All those bells and whistles do have a hefty price tag however. The Becker Mexico retails for about 1500 (about $2000 USD) and is currently available only in European markets.
