JVC and Kenwood produce visual AM/FM radio

INDIANAPOLIS — TagStation, owner of the NextRadio app, announced April 2 that its hybrid radio app is now available on new JVC and Kenwood head units, putting an interactive, visual AM/FM radio experience into the car dashboard.

The new head units come enabled with Abalta Technologies' WebLink software platform, so that when a driver connects a smartphone to a JVC or Kenwood WebLink-compatible head unit, the phone's Internet connection allows NextRadio for WebLink to download album art, station logos and other images to the head unit screen. Local AM/FM radio broadcast audio comes over-the-air via the head unit's tuner.
