iBIQUITY DIGITAL CORP. has pacted with TOYOTA to have the 2014 TUNDRA, COROLLA, SEQUOIA, 4RUNNER and TACOMA models installed with integrated audio and real-time traffic and weather services using CLEAR CHANNEL's Total Traffic HD Network (TTN) and HD Radio Technology. The 2014 TOYOTA COROLLA, TUNDRA and SEQUOIA are now available with the 4RUNNER and TACOMA arriving in dealerships later this month.
"TOYOTA is leading the automotive industry with their innovative HD RADIO offering," iBIQUITY DIGITAL COO JEFF JURY said, "By utilizing multiple delivery systems for traffic and weather information TOYOTA has built a very compelling service offering. We are very pleased that subscription-free audio entertainment and traffic and weather information over the HD RADIO system is an integral part of this offering. TOYOTA and the entire automotive industry is adopting the latest HD RADIO audio and data features very quickly driving the transition of over-the-air AM & FM broadcasting to a digital future."
"TOYOTA is proud of our partnership with iBIQUITY and CLEAR CHANNEL to provide consumers with subscription free traffic and weather information via HD Radio broadcast on our next generation Entune systems," TOYOTA VP/Connected Vehicle Technology and Product Planning SANDY LOBENSTEIN said, With Entune App Suite enabled systems, we are also the first to offer consumers 'hybrid data' technology that automatically switches to provide traffic and weather information over the internet via cell phone when a customer travels out of HD Radio broadcast range. We couldn't be more thrilled to be able to offer consumers these subscription free services along with our industry leading 'hybrid data' capability."
