Pioneer Delivers Dynamic Content to the Car with AppRadioLIVE App
LONG BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today continues to advance the connected
car experience with the development and launch of AppRadioLIVE.
Developed by Pioneer, AppRadioLIVE
is a proprietary new app for users of Pioneer's AppRadio
Mode in-dash receivers. This new app aggregates content from popular
music, events, traffic, weather and news sources through a new
interactive user interface to provide seamless access to personalized
information while in the vehicle. The AppRadioLIVE app is available for
the latest iPhone devices1 and is compatible with all current
and past Pioneer AppRadio products as well as 2013 and 2014 audio video
and navigation receiver models featuring AppRadio Mode2.
"The AppRadioLIVE app, developed with direct feedback from existing
AppRadio customers, delivers some of the best content and services that
drivers are already using today, but aggregated into a single, intuitive
new user interface," said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for
the Car Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.
"Developing an app like this gives us the ability to service and reach
loyal customers by simply refreshing their existing products. Best of
all, users get a seamless experience between the built-in aggregated
content for a safer, more fun user experience."
With the app running on a compatible iPhone connected to an AppRadio or
AppRadio Mode in-dash receiver, users have access to various third party
services directly on the Pioneer touchscreen. By combining these
services into a single app, AppRadioLIVE eliminates the need to open
different apps individually to access content from partners such as INRIX®,
Stitcher®, Yelp (News - Alert)® and more, greatly simplifying the
user's experience. The dynamic home screen of AppRadioLIVE provides an
interactive interface divided into quadrants consisting of maps, music,
news information, and calendar events. By selecting one of the
quadrants, the driver can bring the necessary information into focus
with a full screen view.
AppRadioLIVE's map feature provides access to a map with INRIX live
traffic data including traffic flow and incidents information.
AppRadioLIVE makes it esy to obtain an estimated time of arrival (ETA)
to various destinations such as home, work or a specified destination.
Within the same interface, users can quickly find popular points of
interest with reviews delivered from Yelp and receive information about
concerts and other nearby events delivered by Eventseeker®.
The AppRadioLIVE map feature also allows destinations to be exported
directly into any of the user's favorite AppRadio compatible navigations
apps, such as iGo Primo®, MotionX GPS Drive®,
Navfree® or Waze® to obtain route and voice
AppRadioLIVE provides access to a variety of audio content from music to
podcasts, and even Internet radio. Users have quick access and control
over the music stored on their iPhone devices and also have access to
streamed content through services like Stitcher, offering more than
25,000 on demand radio shows and podcasts, Rdio®, one of the
largest music streaming services in the world with over 25 million songs
available3, and Pioneer aggregated Internet Radio with access
to several hundred pure play stations, sorted by genre.
With Feedly®, AppRadioLIVE consumers can stay up-to-date on
the latest news topics that matter most to them. The service enables
customizable RSS (Really Simple Syndication) news feeds to be read back
using a high quality text-to-speech engine. Open Weather Map is also
built-in giving users access to up-to-date 5-day weather forecasts for
locations including their home, work, and destination when a route is
AppRadioLIVE keeps consumers organized and informed by accessing the
user's iPhone calendar and Facebook (News - Alert) events and delivering this
information through a single, simple interface. Eventseeker can also
