The Spring Hill, Calif. electronics integrator Dice Electronics announced the arrival of the 2011 Silverline Duo Integration Kits with Ferndale-based Livio Radio. iPhone users will now have full control over Livio Car Internet Radio app’s 45,000 plus radio stations through factory radio controls, with no monthly fees.
The Dice Silverline Duo is an automotive interface that enables iPod or iPhone connectivity and offers access to the Livio Car Internet Radio application through car stereo controls, steering wheel or console buttons.
“Working with Livio Radio allows us to offer users more music options with our automotive integration technology and we’re proud to be the first to market with OEM add on and upgrade kits for car Internet radio,” said Stephen Witt, Dice executive vice president.
“I quit listening to CDs when I purchased my satellite radio back in 2003,” said Livio Radio founder and CEO Jake Sigal. “I cancelled my satellite radio subscription when I installed the Dice Duo plus Livio into my car. I’m excited we can finally share our engineering development with the rest of the world.”
The Dice Duo featuring Livio Car Internet Radio requires the use of an iPhone running iOS 4.2 or higher, the Livio app Version 2.2.0 and an active wireless data connection.
The Silverline Duo product has Apple authentication onboard ensuring full iOS compatibility and firmware upgradable. Siverline Duo Integration with Livio kits for selected Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Honda, Acura, BMW, Mini, Nissan and Infiniti vehicles are available now at a suggested retail price of $189.99.
