iHeartRadio in Chrysler Group and General Motors vehicles
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announced iHeartRadio integrations in Chrysler Group and General Motors (GM) vehicles and a new made-for-driving application, “iHeartRadio for Auto” (iHeartAuto) that will enable seamless and standardized access to the iHeartRadio digital music platform. iHeartAuto launches with support for select aftermarket auto entertainment products.
Beginning this year iHeartRadio will be available in-dash on select Chrysler Group vehicles equipped with Uconnect Access Via Mobile. Once a user connects their compatible Apple or Android smartphone with the Chrysler Uconnect Access App, drivers can control and personalize their iHeartRadio listening experience directly through the dashboard touch screen.
iHeartRadio will also expand their auto integrations to select 2014 GM infotainment systems.
Clear Channel describes iHeartRadio as a simple, safety-minded user-interface designed to provide seamless in-vehicle access to iHeartRadio’s more than 1,500 live radio stations across the country. The app will allow users to create Custom Stations inspired by their favorite artists or songs and provide in-vehicle access to a variety of other iHeartRadio features including its thumbs up/thumbs down and station scan features.
The app launched with support for Clarion Smart Access cloud server products; Pioneer’s AppRadio platform of products, including AppRadio 2, and Kenwood’s connected receiver DNN990HD. The app will also offer a developer protocol that provides manufacturers a standardized, easy-to-implement means to connect to the iHeartRadio platform.
