Imagine driving around town without the benefits of music playing from your car’s speakers. Can’t do it? Yeah, neither can we, but who wants to listen to the same old radio stations looping the same top ten songs over and over again? Not us.
Essentially one of the most important items of a vehicle is in-car music, which can turn an otherwise boring day behind the wheel of your car into your very own karaoke session. And thanks to the wonder that is technology, listening to your music in your car can now be even more enjoyable courtesy of another new breakthrough in the Pandora and Pioneer alliance.
After giving us the Pandora Internet Radio, iPhone and Pandora users can now enjoy the feature even more with the PandoraLink app from Pioneer. Basically what this app can do is allow the driver or passenger to access their Pandora account right from their car using Pioneer’s new AVIC-Z120BT and AVIC-X920BT in-dash navigation systems. All you need to do is use your pre-existing Pandora account, connect it to your Pioneer in-dash navigation system, select your audio source, and just like that, you’ll gain instant touch screen access to your Pandora account where you can now enjoy all your favorite Internet radio stations.
With a market that’s dominated by the likes of Sirius XM, Pioneer is bent on becoming a major player in the world of Internet radio. Teaming up with Pandora was the first step to that goal and now the partnership is beginning to see the fruits of its labor with the new Pioneer PandoraLink feature that’s sure to become a staple in many vehicles in the near future.
