Hyundai Launches Bluetooth Audio With Wireless Music Streaming Capabilities - (Australia)
July 23rd, 2008
Hyundai has been known for its leadership in car audio systems. By early 2004, all Hyundai models sold in Australia had MP3 player capability and with the launch of the i30 hatch, Hyundai introduced iPod®, MP3 player and USB memory stick connectivity.
Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and Hyundai is leading the way once again. Hyundai is launching its integrated Bluetooth® audio system complete with hands-free phone operation and Bluetooth® wireless music streaming capabilities.
The system allows wireless streaming of music directly from a Bluetooth® compatible mobile phone or Bluetooth® compatible music player.
During phone conversations, the in-built microphone captures the driver’s voice and the car’s speakers transmit the other caller’s voice. There is also a phone-book that can store up to 78 phone numbers and names. All listed names and numbers appear on the audio’s display when an incoming call is received.
Other enhancements for the next generation audio platform include USB and Auxiliary inputs, allowing users to connect and play music from their iPod®, MP3 player or USB memory stick.
The first cars in the range to receive the system will be Getz and Tucson.
