Columbia, MD - Jan 6, 2014 - iBiquity Digital has announced further growth in the use of the HD Radio data services Artist Experience and digital traffic/weather telematics.

Artist Experience is now available in new HD Radio car receivers from BMW, Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, Lexus, Mazda, Toyota and Volkswagen as well as CE manufacturers Alpine, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, Sony and Insignia.
HD Radio Digital Traffic Services enable stations to transmit up-to-the-minute traffic, weather and other information directly to cars, where it is seen by the driver on navigation screens.
