We finally hooked up the JVC KD-HDR1 in my husband’s car (okay, Tweeter hooked it up), and I filmed a quick Flip video showing the device’s add-on iPod module. Very few after-market car stereos include HD radio and an iPod connector that lets you not only listen to you iPod through through the car speakers, but also control the iPod through the dash. The JVC device is great, but unfortunately iPod navigation with a four-button interface still leaves much to be desired. My advice: get the KD-HDR1, then store some playlists and memorize the button clicks you need to get to those music tracks. I wouldn’t want to be fiddling with up, down, left, right while driving.
Still haven’t toyed much with the HD radio options, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover how much HD content there is on the radio dial. I’ll have to start tracking what new stations (not already broadcast in analog) are available in the Philly market in HD.
