Total Traffic To Offer In-Dash News Crawl
April 14, 2010 at 6:47 AM (PT)
Using compatible car radios, CLEAR CHANNEL plans to introduce a news crawl to its TOTAL TRAFFIC NETWORK. The service already broadcasts traffic reports to 125 metropolitan areas, but this text-only service comes over an FM subchannel using the JOURNALINE service.
It will work with any car that gets HD RADIO broadcasts, but right now only JVC’s KW-NT3 HDT Navigation system is compatible, which has a sticker price of $1,200. CLEAR CHANNEL plans to launch the service later this year.
