Ford first to offer HD radio with iTunes Tagging

12/28/2009, 9:53 PMBY MARK KLEIS

While the technology itself has been around since 2008 in aftermarket radios, the ability to get HD radio with built-in iTunes tagging from the factory was not possible until now. Ford will now be offering factory-installed radios that are capable of tuning to HD radio stations and offering factory integrated iTunes Tagging with the push of a button – thanks to the latest version of Sync.

Ford’s interpretation of iTunes Tagging with HD radio is made possible through the factory installed Sync interface system, which will enable users to push the “tag” button on the radio when a song is playing that the user wishes to later download.

Sync will keep track of up to 100 songs without having an iPod, Zune or other external mp3 player or hard drive connected. When the user is ready to take the list of tagged songs to the iTunes store the user simply plugs in the iPod and the list will automatically sync and download to the iPod. When the iPod is later connected to a computer and synced to iTunes the playlist of tagged songs will appear and users can preview and download songs directly to iTunes from there.

Ford has not yet clarified when exactly this new feature will be available, but expect it to start arriving standard with Sync in 2010.
