Internet radio content aggregator miRoamer and Blaupunkt showed two prototype in-dash Internet radios at the recently concluded CES show.
miRoamer says by pushing a button, users can switch from AM/FM to miRoamers “tens of thousands” of Internet radio stations — without third-party devices or plugging in cords.
“Integrating Blaupunkt stereos with miRoamer technology was a logical step in creating a truly multimedia driving experience,” stated Blaupunkt’s Dr. Gerhard Pitz. “Drivers will be able to use all the features they’re familiar with, such as phone, address book, Bluetooth and navigation, but with the Internet radio, driven by miRoamer, we are able to offer them the ability to tune into the world.”
miRoamer also offers the ability to browse genres or stations and customize preferences, providers and search options online at miroamer.com. The Internet portal also allows users to add media that is not currently offered on miRoamer, by providing the URL and adding it to their favorites.
