RADIOTIME, INC. will integrate their web radio service into its BMW's MINI, bringing web radio and a unique USB interface for integration of the APPLE iPHONE in the car’s audio and infotainment system.
"Drivers love radio because it’s free and requires no registration or setup, but accessing Internet radio used to require patching a smartphone into a car’s existing sound system, and fiddling with a smartphone’s controls," said RADIOTIME CEO BILL MOORE. "Now, instead of looking at your smartphone screen, you can use the dash display and MINI Joystick to tune to web radio. Radio has always been an integral part of our cars, and we’re opening up the world of music, news, talk, sports and entertainment that only web radio can offer."
