Radio of the future?
Volkswagen is working on the car radio of the future, combining present-day features with the internet in a so-called Hybrid Radio, the car maker has announced.
The motorist can use the system according to his or her individual needs and decide on how and when he or she listens to the radio.
Using an internet interface the motorist can create a personalised playlist which can range from local news through to diverse musical specials. The selections can then be chosen from the playlist in the car.
The project will pick up speed as early as 2011, when the first field tests will be carried out in the Lower Saxony area of northern Germany, according to VW. - Sapa-DPA
