Minneapolis, MN– Navarre announced an agreement with Livio Radio to distribute the Bluetooth Car Internet Radio Kit across the U.S. and Canada. “The Kit,” previewed at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, is a plug-and-play gadget that brings Internet radio and music from your iPod or iPhone to any FM car stereo. The Kit also offers Bluetooth hands-free calling, USB charging, and buttons to safely control the Livio Car Internet Radio application, with no monthly fees.
“The Kit is one of the best new items we’ve seen this season,” said Joyce Fleck, President of Navarre Distribution Services. “We anticipate our customers will be equally excited about Livio’s easy to use Internet radio solution. Just like a radio station can offer a lot of music choices, news updates and variety to listeners, our partnership will offer many channels of growth.”
Navarre will be distributing Livio Radio to the mass retail and club store channels as well as through online retailers just in time for the holidays.
“The Kit will change the way people enjoy radio in the car,” Livio Radio founder and CEO Jake Sigal said. “Navarre has been able to bring in significant orders from major customers, letting us focus on what we do best, product development”.
