Toyota Rolling Out HD
iBiquity announced today the 2014 Tundra, Corolla, Sequoia, 4Runner, and Tacoma are the first Toyota vehicles to launch 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 has launched two new systems integrating HD Radio digital audio entertainment and TTN’s real-time traffic and weather information:
- For vehicles with navigation systems, Toyota will provide a digital audio and navigation system driven by the first of its kind hybrid technology capable of receiving digital traffic and weather information from both HD Radio stations and the cell phone network, using the driver’s smartphone connected with the Toyota Entune system.
- For vehicles without navigation, Toyota will offer a premium display audio system complete with free traffic maps and weather information, all delivered by HD Radio stations across the country.
Both systems will also offer the latest digital audio features including Artist Experience®, allowing listeners to view images such as album art on their radio screens as they enjoy their favorite HD Radio stations.
