US: Rosen aftermarket navi systems to get Internet Radio via smartphone

Rosen Entertainment Systems has announced plans to add an interface to its product line to support Clear Channel Radio’s iheartradio platform.

Note: Toyota is also using the iheartradio platform.

Being phased in during the first quarter of 2011, Rosen’s line of Factory-Look Multi-Media & Navigation systems (50 vehicle applications and counting) will include a built-in iheartradio interface for iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices that will wirelessly link to Rosen’s media systems via Bluetooth data and audio connections.

The iheartradio mobile application for iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices allows users to save their favorite stations to their iheartradio account, set a station to play automatically when the app launches, toggle between their favorite stations and songs, and travel anywhere in the U.S. while listening to their favorite iheartradio stations.

Functional controls and features, including album art images, are now native to the Rosen unit. This provides the user with an experience where functions are accessible through Rosen’s high-definition 6.2-inch 8-inch touch-screen LCD displays.

Rosen multi-media systems with navigation provide a number of features, including 6.2-inch – 8.0-inch high-definition touch-screen LCD displays; Nav-N-Go navigation software with 11 million-plus POI and five language options (English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin Chinese) and more.
