About the Boss 762BRGB
Boss' 762BRGB CD receiver gets you into the Bluetooth® wireless game along with lots of music options to keep you entertained on the road. Boss also includes a wireless remote and a variable-color display that enables you to pick the right look in your dash.
Boss sweetens the deal with built-in Bluetooth. You can answer a phone call with the push of a button, and talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. And the 762BRGB supports Bluetooth audio streaming, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, with basic control over functions like "play" or "pause." Android™ users can download the Boss Radio Control Stream™ app from the Google Play store and get control over the 762BRGB right from your Android's screen.
Lots of ways to play
Not everyone uses the same devices for music, so Boss provided several ways to get your music playing. They included a front auxiliary input for portable audio players, as well as a front USB port for playing MP3 files. You can always slide in your favorite CDs, including discs burned with MP3 and WMA files. And you'll also find an SD™ card slot behind the face too, so you can slip in a card loaded with MP3 files and enjoy the music whenever you want. Finding songs on your media is easy, thanks to an alphabetic directory search feature.
