Mazda has joined the roster of car makers who have announced plans to integrate Pandora into their radios/dash. Mazda models that will feature Pandora are expected to be available at dealers beginning in the fall. The Mazda in-dash entertainment system will support Pandora functions such as thumbs-up, thumbs-down and track skip. In-car connectivity is made possible via a paired iPhone running the Pandora app.
To date, Pandora has announced partnerships with a total of 19 automotive brands and seven aftermarket manufacturers to offer personalized radio via the in-dash entertainment system using the connectivity of a smartphone. There are more than 50 models that feature Pandora currently available at dealerships with additional models expected this year.
