GROM Audio today announced the pre-sale for its soon to be released HD Radio® Dongle.

It plugs into these car audio integration kits and extends their features and quality with HD Radio® receiver capability.

The dongle will retail for a suggested $89.99.

The GROM-HDR1 Dongle is a high definition Radio Tuning Device. As market reviews of this product suggest, this device promises to deliver the ultimate listening experience by offering static-free, crystal-clear audio from FM stations.

Standard analog radios simply cannot match up to the unique features provided by this device.
