Ever since Apple introduced the iPod in 2001, allowing 1,000 songs to be stored on a small player, it marked an acceleration in the development of portable digital gadgets. The iPod and MP3 players became accessories for car listening. Another new package of listening choices came with Sirius XM, a satellite radio company offering hundreds of channels that can be heard around the world.
Radios are now coming standard with USB/AUX connections which allow people to use portable music devices such as their cell phones and iPod/Zunes, as well as thumb drives. HD Radio has recently become very popular and is making its way to becoming standard equipment. Car radios are starting to be produced that don’t even come equipped with a CD player anymore. The day will come when CDs are no longer used.
In the last few years, we have also utilized Bluetooth technology to connect our mobile phones (smart phones) to our car audio system, making it not only useful for entertainment but for practical reasons too. The age of fumbling around with our phones while driving is a thing of the past. Simply pair your phone one time, and every time you enter the vehicle, your phone is connected and you can use your radio to make/receive phone calls.
Radio audio is constantly changing with new and exciting technologies. 2013 model radios are now coming with HDMI inputs to allow HD connections to multimedia radios. What’s next? Only time will tell!
