Aha by Harman and Honda are working together to bring audio content to 2013 Honda Accords for the HondaLink infotainment system that debuts this fall.
Aha is an interactive web platform that organizes web audio content into personalized, live, on-demand radio stations that consumers can listen to on the go. The web streams of some traditional radio content, like CBS Radio and NPR, are included on the Aha platform.
After downloading the free HondaLink app for iPhone or Android, users can use their smartphones to select their preset stations from 30,000 choices like audiobooks, Internet radio, on-demand music, news, personalized points of interest information, Facebook and Twitter audio newsfeeds.
When their smart phone is connected to a compatible Honda entertainment system, the users’ Aha presets become radio preset buttons, so drivers can put down the phone and switch between stations just like traditional radio, says Aha. When they arrive at their destination and exit the car, users can continue to listen to their content with their smartphone.
