Radio Station ID Transforms the Dial

Today, radio station discovery relies on drivers memorizing station frequencies and scanning the dial. Gracenote Radio Station ID transforms how drivers search for and find radio stations by delivering rich data and imagery, such as station logos, names and formats, that allow automakers to create visually rich, consistent smart guides for radio.

Improved Search & Navigation

Rich imagery and normalized radio station metadata, including station logos, names, frequencies and categories, enables the creation of Smart Guides for Radio that let drivers browse their favorite stations and music.

Station Categories

Gracenote editorial teams have organized and normalized radio music categories to simplify how drivers navigate and find stations that match their musical tastes. By leveraging a team of music experts, Gracenote has fine-tuned station categories to be more relevant and intuitive to listeners.

Location-Based Discovery

Location-based discovery eliminates the need for driver’s to ‘scan the dial’ as they move outside of signal range. Radio Station ID delivers stations based on the driver’s location, while also providing data-driven recommendations to enable drivers to discover more of the radios stations they love as they drive between regions.

Hybrid Radio Solution

Delivers radio station IP URLs to enable the ability to switch from terrestrial to streaming radio broadcasts when the driver moves beyond terrestrial range. With flexible integration options, automakers can provide drivers the option to manually initiate the switch to streaming, or switch automatically based on the strength and reliability of the broadcast signal.
