Feb 17, 2012 - TPEG (Travel Protocol Expert Group) is a key feature of Toyota Touch Pro, the most advanced version of the new Toyota Touch multimedia system. It works with a DAB radio to provide more detailed, accurate and timely traffic information, coordinated with the vehicle's satellite navigation. This is all according to an article on 3d-car-shows.com.
Toyota Touch Pro makes its debut in the Toyota range as a standard feature of the 2012 Land Cruiser V8. It is also available as part of the Technology Pack option that is offered for the 2012 Prius T Spirit.
One advantage of DAB over analog FM is that there is more capability to transmit information such as traffic data.
The broadcaster plans to have two 1MW MW transmitters operational by March 2012 and an additional 72 DRM transmitters by March 2013....
The new vehicle also includes Bluetooth integration for smartphones and Internet streaming....
