Visteon launches HD Jump receiver for digital radio

Visteon HD Jump

Visteon at CES officially launched its HD Jump receiver. The adapter tunes the HD2 digital radio broadcasts now in place alongside many terrestrial stations and even raises the quality of existing analog stations: FM stations achieve CD-quality sound while AM stations reach FM levels, according to the company's claims. The receiver gains a large LCD to help with navigating and viewing the text information only available with HD radio. Described as the first "transportable" radio of its kind by Visteon, the Jump needs a separate power source but includes a windshield mounting kit to link with any car and can alternately link with an optional cradle to play radio inside the home; the car mount also sports an auxiliary input jack to play music from an iPod or other pocket player through the vehicle's sound system. Neither a price nor a ship date have yet to be released.
