iBiquity brings HD radio to the iPhone/iPod Touch

Gigaware Navigation Control HD Radio Receiver and Gigaware HD Radio application

The developer of digital HD Radio Technology iBiquity Digital Corporation is bringing HD radio FM broadcasts to all the iPhone and iPod Touch users. The trick is in the hardware-software combo – Gigaware Navigation Control HD Radio Receiver and Gigaware HD Radio application.

iBiquity takes advantage of the iPhone OS 3.0 and newer, which allows applications to control external accessories. As a result, users can take their HD radio experience with them, tuning into HD2 and HD3 multicast channels while on the go.

Alternatively, for the majority of us who are not audiophiles and who don’t want to pay $79.99 for the Gigaware HD Radio accessory, there are “good enough” apps like Pandora and FlyCast
