-Hi, I'm Wayne Cunningham with CNET taking a close look Dodge's new Entertainment Center here in the 2011 charge. Now, the first thing you will notice about the system, it's got a massive screen. This is 8.4 inches and there's on plastic buttons around the outside. Dodge filled the function buttons in a menu across the bottom here. Now, if I push the navigation button, I get a really familiar screen. This is actually Garmin navigation software that Dodge integrated into the new Entertainment Center. Now, this is pretty good stuff. It's got really good guidance. If I switch to this plus button here, that gives me SIRIUS travel link. From the SIRIUS travel link, I get movie listings, sports scores, gas prices and weather, and that stuff is integrated with the navigation system. So, by finding the gas price that I like, I can actually just hit that button and will send me address to that gas station to the navigation system. Now, if I go to the stereo, I hit this player icon here and I get a lot of digital audio sources. I get Bluetooth streaming audio. I get USB drive. I got iPod integration and even SD card. Now I've got USB drive actually plugged into the car right now. And this system used the integrated Gracenote database [unk] the MP3 tracks that I go on there and now I can browse that tracks on that drive by album, genre, artist, all the normal things you find in an MP3 player. With the phone system there, I can get an on screen keypad and I can actually just manually enter a number or the system also copy the phone book from my third phone to the system and I can search through and find any name on there. I can also use voice command to call a number just by getting the steering wheel button and saying, call Wayne Cunningham. -Which phone for Wayne Cunningham would like to call? -So the system actually found 3 numbers associated with my name in the content [unk] and asked me which one of those I wanna call. So, this system brings the [unk] and includes all the modern features you'd expect in car entertainment center with a nice big screen. This has been a close look at Dodge's new Entertainment Center on here on the 2011 Charger. I'm Wayne Cunningham for CNET.s
