Metra Electronics will host six mobile electronics installer training sessions at the 2019 KnowledgeFest event in Dallas next month.
The in-depth training sessions will outline upgraded vehicle safety systems, selling and installing lighting solutions, simplified installs with sound processors and the future of vehicle integration. Metra will also have product giveaways at each session. Installer Institute will also be at the show, promoting mobile electronics training programs and continuing education courses.
Both of the iBEAM training sessions, “Upgrading Vehicle Safety Systems with iBEAM,” will assist installers in identifying the essential selling points of safety and convenience, and will be held on Saturday, Aug. 10 at 4:45 pm and Sunday, Aug. 11th at 3:30 pm. Among other things, attendees will learn about iBEAM’s latest vehicle cameras, dashboard cameras with DVRs, replacement rearview mirrors, vehicle-specific solutions and commercial safety line
Heise’s two training sessions, “Selling and Installing Heise LED Lighting Solutions,” run on Friday, Aug. 9th at 1:45 pm and Sunday, Aug. 11th at 4:45 pm. This session will allow installers to learn about Heise’s unique features and selling points that have set this brand apart from the rest. The training will cover the new DRL lightbars, replacement LED headlights, RGB backlit lightbars, RGB accent lights and the new Municipality Series of safety lights for commercial equipment and fleet vehicles.
Axxess will be host two different training sessions. The first, “Simplify your Installs with Axxess Digital Sound Processors,” will cover the entire Axxess AX-DSP product line and will be on Friday, Aug. 9 at 3:00 pm. This training will explain how to use the different types of applications offered within the AX-DSP line, including CAN-based systems, new A2B systems, MOST25, and MOST50 vehicle technology. The second Axxess training session on Saturday, Aug. 10th at 6:00 pm, “The Future of Vehicles Integration with New Axxess Products,” explains how integration is the future of the aftermarket 12-volt industry. With the reduction in OE radio chassis sizes, the rising popularity of tablet-style screens, and many of the personalization features controlled through the OE radio, it is difficult for shops to offer simple aftermarket solutions. Among other topics addressed, attendees will learn about new products from Axxess that have been engineered specifically to address the complexity of today’s integrated vehicle technology systems and retain key convenience and safety features when upgrading a radio.
