Livio, which makes Internet car radio kits that have been sold through Hammacher Schlemmer, Amazon, Crutchfield and other retailers said it is exiting the car radio kit market.
Livio will phase out car kit products such as the Grooveshark Car Kit by Livio Radio, and the Bluetooth Car Internet Radio Kit that accesses 45,000 stations in an easy to use format while driving.
Livio has increasingly focused on back end Internet radio and apps services for car radio makers and car makers and says that this will now be its primary business.
The company recently announced its software is offered in the Chevy Spark.
It’s Livio Connect platform won a Frost & Sullivan award and the company announced in Las Vegas Monday, just prior to CES, a new platform that makes it easy for FM radio broadcasters to offer two-way communication with its users over a Bluetooth smartphone connection.
