One of my biggest pet peeves is when I am listening to a program or song on the radio that I’m really enjoying and either get a phone call, stop for gas, or the like and have to miss a portion or all of what I’m listening to. For a few years, satellite radio providers have given customers that option with their devices they sell, but the option has yet to be introduced, built in to GM radios.
We don’t have to wait any longer. Certain GM vehicles offer a Pause and Play Radio feature, which saves up to 20-minutes of audio from a radio (including XM radio) on a vehicle’s hard drive. The best part – this radio save feature can even be activated when the vehicle is turned off!
Now in addition to the certain handful of GM vehicles that offer Pause and Play Radio, GM recently announced this radio feature would also become available on lower-end vehicles as well. This announcement we find interesting, considering they have higher-end vehicles such as the Corvette lacking the latest, greatest options.
After first debuting on the Cadillac CTS, the feature has been available on the Buick LaCrosse, Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX. And now, the Chevrolet Cruze and Buick Regal will begin to offer it too. Others suggest GM will continue to expand this feature onto other vehicles eventually.
Maybe next year’s Corvette will make the cut! If not then, maybe with the release of the Corvette C7 – that is if it doesn’t already come with better radio features!
Stay tuned as we update you on the next batch of GM vehicles that will offer Pause and Play Radio.
