Drivers now have a dizzying array of music options to choose from. Gracenote MusicID® Radio brings order to the chaos by identifying music playing from every possible music source and delivering consistent metadata and Cover Art to the driver’s dashboard.

MusicID Radio Features

Automatic Identification

Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) technology built into the car’s audio system continuously identifies music playing from AM/FM, CDs, satellite radio and streaming services.

Music Data

After identifying a song on FM, digital or satellite radio, Gracenote delivers the relevant artist, album and track name to the dashboard, allowing drivers to recognize the music they are grooving to.
