Tech Marches On: Hyundai to Drop CD Players

You know that long, thin and horizontal slot in your dashboard, near the radio?  Hyundai, via Telematics News says it’s going away….

Starting with new cars for 2016 in the United States, the old audio system will be replaced with a new infotainment unit, embracing smartphone connectivity, according to the automaker.


“In the United States, people no longer listen to music with CD players. Thus, USB and Bluetooth functions will be placed in the company’s future cars, enabling drivers to listen to music on smartphones,” said a Hyundai Motor official.


Some will say “nooooo”.  The rest of us will say “thank God”.

Best of all, the new platform will not make customers fight the platform wars between Android and Apple.  The system will be optimized for use with both systems, integrating functions and apps.
