HD Radio Adds Real-Time Traffic
CES Las Vegas - Jan 6, 2009 - HD Radio enters the real-time traffic consumer market through its advanced data services. At CES, two in-dash head units and three personal navigation devices (PND) are being shown. Five prototypes are being shown, including a built-in receiver, cigarette lighter adapter, a cradle product, a Dual in-dash unit and a Visteon advanced OEM platform.
Real-time navigation devices using HD Radio technology deliver traffic and concierge services such as gas station prices, movie listings, sports scores, stock quotes, school closings and emergency alerts.
Two broadcast groups have announced that they will offer HD Radio real-time traffic data in the near future: Clear Channel is currently offering a real-time traffic service nationally. In 2008, a group of leading radio companies formed the Broadcaster Traffic Consortium, which is working with Navteq to build a nationwide broadcasting network to distribute local traffic and other concierge data services via radio.
