Chevrolet has brought “TuneIn” which is considered as the streaming audio power house at the CES to demonstrate its capability.
Based on the information obtained from Chevrolet, TuneIn will allow its consumers to gain access to a personalized and globally-functional infotainment system that could be controlled using the vehicle’s radio.

This is possible since TuneIn which is will be offered on the Chevrolet Sonic and the Chevrolet Spark is connected to a global radio network composed of about 70,000 radio stations.
