    CES 2009 - Miroamer makes first Internet Car radio? We think not.

    We think not. Our users have been doing internet radio in their cars for years (at least 2005) . We will most likely stop by their booth to “hear” how this compares to competing solutions like Panodora.
    It is hard to beat 160kb radio streams from stations like Radioparadise . In my opinion current miRoamer streams sound HORRIBLE!

    See the full release and Talk about this here:



    Full pre-release:

    "miRoamer (www.miroamer.com), a global innovator in the Internet radio industry, will announce a partnership with Blaupunkt, one of the world’s leading consumer electronics manufacturers and specialists in car multimedia, at CES 2009. The partnership will introduce the world’s first Internet car radio, giving drivers access the world’s largest and most diverse selection of Internet radio content through their car stereo.
    Today, users want to jump in their car and go – no pulling out third-party devices or plugging in cords to access their music and information. The world’s first Internet car radio enables drivers of vehicles fitted with new Blaupunkt stereos to tune into miRoamer’s tens of thousands of radio stations from around the world. Now, with the simple push of a button, users can access AM/FM stations or Internet radio’s thousands of music, entertainment, news and talk stations from around the world, all from the same car stereo.

    miRoamer will be giving live demonstrations at Booth #5418 in the North Hall at CES, as well as at Table # 43 at CES Unveiled. Any interest in being one of the first to see the world’s first Internet car radio? Thanks!

    Best,
    Ryan

    miRoamer IS NOT the first.They use the streams from the Digitally Imported - Electronic & Dance Music Radio 24/7 website (www.di.fm) and Sky.fm website (which is the same company from Long Island NY).miRoamer is just a bookmark website.When the first mobile phones were able to stream music I was able to listen to online radios, around 2004.Presently I use my Palm Treo with a cassette adapter and my Benz sounds better than before.Another website which supplies a player (software of course) for your portable is Munduradio (www.mundu.com) .I use it alot because I can bookmark my streams and not use the web browser to select them.Comes very handy.Any radio station which broadcast on the internet is at your finger tips.So we have to make here a distinction between content providers (DI.fm , Sky.fm , Shoutcast , etc) and "repackagers" (miRoamer, mundu, etc). The first internet radio car surfaced sometime in 2004 and was probably "brewed" in this forum. The evolutionary law say 'Form follow function' ... and mp3car.com was(and still is) a very "fertile ground" for well ahead of their time 'functions' and ideas. Happy New Year MP3car !

    Hi Gabev,

    Obviously you do not have a clue what miRoamer application does!
    It's always a great idea to download the app and run it a few times
    Yes there are a few good Global Internet Radio out there,
    but miRoamer has really a few big differences.(100% Free, AOD, Shout/icy Casts, Global FM/AM, any station, etc...)
    Also miMedia (miRoamer) provide a lot of background services (Station index (DB), Content, Ad engines, broadcast engines and more).
