Chrysler to use new DVR-style stereos?

by David Zatz on

Chrysler was the first company to have a hard drive based music system in its cars, and may now be the first to provide an added capability — the ability to record off the air, as well as off a CD or DVD.

The new 430 and 730 radios for the 2011 model year vehicles can, according to our source, now record satellite radio and then allow you to replay it, similar to a television DVR/Tivo. Our source says it’s both easy and intuitive.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
