Tech Day: Infotainment Systems

  • Jaguar of Tampa 320 East Fletcher Avenue Tampa, FL, 33613 United States (map)

Our first event! This Tech Day will be the first of a series covering various aspects of Gaydon-era Aston Martins. In this one, we'll be looking at infotainment systems. We're bringing in two of the most knowledgeable experts in the world to cover the factory systems, the upgrades and modifications available, and even how to install them.

Redpants, Aston Installations, and Jaguar of Tampa are sponsoring this event so it is free for attendees! James Hawkes-Reed and Lenny Knox are two of the best in the business for Aston Martin infotainment systems, and they'll be coming all the way from England to present at the Tech Day. They'll also be doing installations for those of us that want our cars upgraded.

Please email me at or through the Contact page to let us know you're coming. We need to know who is coming in advance in order to prepare for the event. Please send the following information:

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • City, State
  • Vehicle year and model
  • Current infotainment options
  • Desired infotainment upgrades/modifications
  • If you want installation done

NOTE: The information you provide will ONLY be used for this event. It will NOT be used for any other purpose. Your personal information will not be shared with anyone outside of Redpants (so, only me and Clare). Vehicle information will be given only to the experts we're bringing in so they can better prepare for the event to make sure the information they provide is relevant and meaningful to attendees.

The event will be held at Jaguar of Tampa on Saturday, April 28th. Please arrive around 9am. We'll begin at 930am and lunch will be provided.
