Q: Can I listen in my car?
A: if you have a mobile device and a really great data package (Canada) and free data( USA) you can listen in your vehicle via bluetooth or through an AUX cord attached to phone. Concerned about Data Usage? Here are some facts to help you decide WHEN and HOW MUCH to listen on your data package if your in your vehicle. “320kbps rate translates to 2.40 MB per minute of audio or 115.2 MB per hour. So if you were to stream music for an entire eight hour work day, you’d burn nearly 1 GB” We broadcast at have that rate 192kbps which would be 57.6 MB/hour on HGB. For 1 GB of data use, on nothing but the radio station, that would give you 17.5 hrs of listening! This will give you a basic idea how much data you will use streaming using data. Its really not that bad! But choose wisely especially if you are using your data for other purposes such as streaming video. NOW YOU KNOW! No surprises.
