Motor Show Nugget: Blaupunkt's first car mini-disc

Nuggets, twice a day, every day (well, we do our best!). Software, hardware and every gadget we can get our mitts on...

Live the digital experience sat in your motor

At the London Motor show Tuesday, Blaupunkt launched its first MiniDisc car radio. The Dallas RMD 169 is a good lookin' critter (Click for images ) and comes in a funky titanium housing -- silver -- complete with an LED panel that's more colourful than the mouth of a brazen hussy...

Playback functions include title and track display with running text, a Mix function, and Track Programme Memory, which buffers music data for ten seconds to stop track jogging. There's a two-band equaliser, and all the usual MD sound presets such as Classic, Disco, Jazz, Rock and Linear. A user option lets you set bass and treble settings.

The unit can also operate a separate CD changer, and has features for integrating a car navigation system. The Traffic Message Channel data output allows traffic information to be delivered via the unit to the navigation system.

The player will be available in December for £399.99.
