Visteon has unveiled its transportable HD Radio receiver, the “HD Jump.”
The product docks into a cradle in the car or at home. The cradle’s built-in aux jack allows users to plug in an MP3 player and hear its contents through the vehicle’s sound system.
The unit converts nearly any auto radio into an HD Radio. Visteon says the dockability feature is unique and differentiates the product from other HD-R car converters coming on the market.
Jump will be available at auto dealerships by late January-early February and list for $249, said Visteon executives.
