Sony is Zappin, but not for HD Radio

The newest in-dash receivers from Sony include connectivity for Ipods and other media players. Other radios can do this, but the Sony models (CDX-GT630UI, CDX-GT430IP, CDX-GT330, CDX-GT130) have a feature called Zappin, which allows the radio head unit to scan the media player like a radio’s station scan button. Users can scan their own media players to find music they like.

Oh, the radios are HD Radio ready, too. That seemed like an afterthought in the press release.

It’s getting easier and easier to use a radio to listen to everything except radio.
