Blaupunkt Frankfurt RCM 82 DAB retro 90's car radio with DAB, Bluetooth, USB, AUX etc.
The classic 90s car radio returns! The relaunched cult car radio Blaupunkt Frankfurt RCM 82 DAB with many new features!
Over the years, some models have become true cult objects. Now Blaupunkt presents the new interpretation of the popular single DIN car radio and combines the unique selling points of the 90s model with new technologies and functions. The result is the Blaupunkt Frankfurt RCM 82 DAB.
Its operating concept, simple design and crystal-clear reception contributed significantly to the popularity of the original Frankfurt RCM 82. The original model was often installed in the VW Golf III, Ford Escort, BMW E30/E34/E36, Opel Kadett, MB W124/R129/W140, Porsche 911/944/928 and many more in the 90s. Now it returns as "Blaupunkt Frankfurt RCM 82 DAB" in the old guise, but with the latest technology. And with “Variocolour” (4,096 colours), the illuminated buttons and the display can be perfectly matched to the colour of the car model for a coherent overall picture.
Thanks to the Blaupunkt Codem IV FM RDS and DAB+ tuner, first-class reception also remains a strength of the new model. New are the numerous interfaces, including two USB ports, an Aux connection and a microSD slot.
Audio streaming via Bluetooth is also not a dream of the future for the returning legend. Moreover, the radio bears the "Made for iPhone/iPod" label and ensures appropriate compatibility.
The audio sources can all be selected directly via buttons, and many other settings can also be accessed directly at the touch of a button. Further functions are located in the clearly structured menu, which is presented in German or English. All settings are permanently stored even if the battery is disconnected. This means that the entertainer from the 90s has arrived in the present.
The new "Blaupunkt Frankfurt RCM 82 DAB" has a short installation depth – ideal for youngtimers with shortened installation slots. But it is not only the car radio itself that takes the user on a journey through time; the packaging of the device has also been elaborately designed and modelled on the original.
NOTE: This radio does not play CDs.
