What are the go-to options?
Part of creating the perfect luxury van consists of integrating some of your favourite entertainment options into the vehicle. Ultimately, this is one of the main things that mark these kinds of specialised luxury vehicles apart from ‘normal’ luxury cars. If you’re looking for some inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place – read on for some advice on the top go-to options when it comes to in-car entertainment.
Apple has been at the forefront of the consumer tech industry for a couple of decades now. As a result, it’s no surprise that their specialised vehicle interface, CarPlay, is considered to be one of the best available.
When planning your luxury conversion with an upfitter like Senzati, it’s a good idea to integrate a CarPlay-compatible device. It means that you’ll be able to link your smartphone (preferably an iPhone) to the vehicle with ease, with none of the faffing around you’d need to do with lots of other clunky Bluetooth systems.
Apart from auditory entertainment, the majority of entertainment nowadays is consumed visually. As a result, it’s important that you get several high-quality screens integrated into your luxury van.
Choose something that’s big enough, without dominating the space, and ideally in a style that matches the rest of the aesthetic that you’re going for. You can then link those screens up to gaming consoles, streaming services, or simply bring up an ambient scene to help you relax.
A gaming console
If you or anyone you regularly travel with is a gaming enthusiast, then why not take the time to integrate a gaming console into your dream build? It provides a more interactive form of entertainment than you’d get just watching a film, and can be a great way to distract yourself from long journeys if you don’t tend to enjoy travelling.
Any entertainment device nowadays tends to require an internet connection to operate optimally. As a result, you’ll likely need some form of mobile Wi-Fi in your van. There are lots of options, from mobile hotspots to specialised forms of wifi that work through vast networks of satellite.
Smart home devices
While a luxury van obviously isn’t a house, you can often benefit from many of the latest smart home devices by integrating them into the vehicle. This could include things such as voice-activated lighting, smart temperature control, and a wide variety of other features. Being able to operate different things in your van with ease can make a big difference to how it feels to spend time in it, making it feel a lot more like your living room than a fancy car.
Ambience enhancing lighting
Finally, while it’s not quite entertainment, getting high-quality ambient lighting options in your luxury van will have a massive impact on how it feels to spend time in it. Get high-quality LEDs that can change between warm and cold lighting options, so that you can switch it up depending on whether you want to feel relaxed or energised at any given moment.
These are some of the go-to entertainment, but it’s important to remember that when creating a luxury van conversion, you can integrate pretty much any entertainment system you want. That’s ultimately the whole point – to end up with something that’s entirely personalised to your exact requirements.
