Pioneer Electronics (USA) has announced the availability of the PandoraLink for Pioneer App on the App Store.
Note: This feature was first announced at the 2010 CES show. See video here.
Through an iPhone, the free PandoraLink for Pioneer App provides complete control of Pandora’s internet radio music service on Pioneer’s new AVIC-Z120BT and AVIC-X920BT in-dash navigation systems.
The PandoraLink for Pioneer App is displayed as a dedicated source on the units and provides Pandora users with the familiar functions of the online service including onscreen display of track information such as title, artist and album art.
In addition to the capability of rating a track with “thumbs up” or “thumbs down,” the dedicated user interface provides easy navigation on a large 7-inch or 6.1-inch touch screen display while driving, which allows users to easily bookmark a song or artist, skip the currently playing track, change stations and select Quickmix playback.
