Background on HD Digital Radio’s Relationship with Automakers
In 2006, BMW was the first automaker to sign on the dotted HD line with their announcement of including the technology as an option for their 2006/7 5, 6 and 7 series car models. Later, the automaker expanded its pioneering position in providing high-quality audio systems by becoming the first automotive firm to offer a factory-installed digital HD Radio receiver as an option across its entire product line. In addition to BMW, Hyundai and Jaguar will continue the momentum to stay on the leading edge of automotive technology by offering HD Radio in their premium sedans scheduled for introduction in 2008.
