In-car entertainment system
Listening to music aboard the 612 Scaglietti is a breathtaking experience. The sound system offers the same kind of audio quality of a top flight home entertainment centre. This 2DIN system, eight-channel digital unit features Surround Sound, was developed especially for the 612 Scaglietti cabin. As a result, the acoustics are flawless no matter what the driving conditions. The uMusicTM intelligent playback system automatically stores and organises your music on the internal hard disk, learning from your listening preferences and making successive selections for you based on tone and rhythm analysis, independent of genre, singer/composer or album.
That said, of course, you can also set the aforementioned as selection criteria. The system can also be controlled using voice recognition or from the steering wheel. The in-car entertainment system includes a CD-DVD player which can also read MP3 files, and features a USB port on its front which makes transferring your music (in MP3 format) to the internal hard disc very straightforward indeed.
Of the hard disc's 30 GB of memory, 20 GB are given over to audio storage (the equivalent of 4,000 songs) and the remainder to software and to navigation maps for the whole of Europe (or alternatively, the USA/Canada or Japan). There's also a special kit to allow you to connect your iPod® (with DOCK connector).
The 612 Scaglietti's sat-nav, which is linked to the sound system, is one of the most sophisticated available right now and includes a huge variety of accessory functions. In addition to Audio and Navigation functions, it offers TV and DVDs can be viewed (the latter of channels locally receivable via an optional analogue TV tuner).
The video screen also doubles as a very useful parking monitor when linked to an optional rearview parking camera. The system also features a Bluetooth® connection for cell phones. The system is integrated with the dash and all main radio, telephone and navigation information is relayed to the TFT display. Trip and car assistance information can also be displayed on the system monitor too.
