CCM+E Teams With Nissan To Bring iHeartRadio To The Dashboard
September 11, 2013
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment announces that its digital iHeartRadio service will be available in-dash of select 2014 Nissan vehicles via its made-for-driving application iHeartRadio for Auto (iHeartAuto).
Beginning this fall, iHeartRadio will be available in select Nissan vehicles equipped with NissanConnect, an in-vehicle global smartphone integration platform for Android and iPhone operating systems. Once a user connects their compatible smartphone with the NissanConnect App, drivers can control their iHeartRadio listening directly through the dashboard or via steering wheel controls.
The iHeartAuto app "offers a simple, safety-minded user-interface designed to provide seamless access to the most popular live radio stations from across the country right from their dashboard.: The iHeartRadio for Auto app also allows users to create Custom Stations inspired by their favorite artists or songs and provides in-dash access to a variety of other iHeartRadio features.
"Working with Nissan to integrate iHeartRadio into the NissanConnect platform allows our listeners to seamlessly access the stations they love in a way designed to minimize distraction," said Brian Lakamp, President of Digital for CCM+E. "Now, Nissan drivers will be able to tune into radio stations from anywhere in the country and keep connected to their favorite on-air personalities without having to worry about driving out of range."
