Geek Squad Autotechs help millions – yes, millions – of customers each year out of nearly every Best Buy store nationwide by installing mobile electronics to connect their favorite four wheels to the latest after-market tech.

But this past week in San Francisco, four Geek Squad standouts went above-and-beyond the call of duty, installing Apple CarPlay®-enabled Pioneer receivers into three demo vehicles for an industry media event.

Not only is it trendy, it’s trending.

Justin Ferroni, Brij Madaan and Todd Myers were among the chosen Geek Squad captains for the event, joined by Geek Squad Services Manager Chris Blanchette.

“With more Mobile Electronics Certified Professionals (MECP) than any other CE retailer, Best Buy is the go-to resource for people who choose after-market car electronics to help boost their connected lifestyles,” Blanchette said. “We were honored to lend our installation skills to the event and look forward to offering this solution to our customers.”

From a Honda Fit to a Subaru Forester, Apple’s sweet CarPlay technology and Pioneer receivers were on display thanks in part to the talents of Geek Squad.

Not a bad week on the job for the guys behind the badge and the Best Buy Autobay.
