Clear Channel Media and Entertainment is riding high with iHeartRadio, its all-in-one digital radio service. The company has announced integrations in new Jaguar Land Rover, Volvo and Kia vehicles.
In addition to these original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), iHeartRadio will also be available via platform solution provider Bosch.
Why is this important?
Well, besides what's better than radio on a road trip or while driving around?
iHeartRadio ensures that listeners will never drive out of range of their favorite stations and radio personalities. Its auto integrations are designed to utilize simple, made-for-driving features that safely communicate only the most essential information for the best possible iHeartRadio experience. The application includes large text and touch targets, intuitive menu functions that incorporate the current habits of car radio users, and an interface designed to reduce distracting light during nighttime driving.
iHeartRadio's auto applications offer simple and seamless access to iHeartRadio's all-in-one digital service.
In 2014, Jaguar Land Rover vehicles equipped with Bosch SoftTec's innovative InControl Apps platform, Volvo vehicles equipped with the Sensus Connect infotainment solution and Kia vehicles with UVO will have access to more than 1,500 live radio stations and user-created custom stations inspired by listeners' favorite artists and songs anywhere they are.
Drivers will also be able to access iHeartRadio's newest feature, iHeartRadio Talk, which offers the best on-demand news, talk and entertainment content available today right from the vehicle's dashboard. Plus, a variety of other iHeartRadio features will be accessible in-dash, including thumbs up/thumbs down, station scan and its signature music discovery tuner.
There ya go! Lots of noise to make your drive that much more pleasant.
