Volvo puts TuneIn into digital dashboard.
Volvo announced in December it was working on a new digital dashboard system, with content partners to be announced in the coming months. The list is out and it includes the TuneIn app that will put most broadcast station streams into Volvo’s Sensus Connected Touch solution.
Like other systems, Volvo’s relies on a smartphone app to access the internet. The Android-based system also includes voice-activated integration with Spotify. Drivers will get a highly-visualized experience with Volvo’s system, which includes a 7-inch touch screen. The system will be sold as an upgrade to all new Volvos going on sale starting in May. Older car models dating back to 2011 can also be retrofitted to include the technology.
