OK, you’ve been able to pick inbuilt DAB+ as an option on certain high end vehicles for a while. But if you’d asked me what the first vehicle range to come with a DAB+ as absolutely standard was going to be, I would not have picked trucks.
Mumbrella reports on the move, which will see all Hino 300, 500, and 700 series trucks fitted with multimedia units that include DAB+ functionality. If you’re thinking that you’ve never heard of Hino, it’s a Toyota sub-brand.
DAB+ inclusion in Hino trucks won’t do anything to increase the footprint of DAB+, which is still markedly metro-centric, but may well be the first of many vehicles that just assume you’ll want DAB+ built in. [Mumbrella]
