With the introduction of Apple CarPlay through many General Motors-branded vehicles, the possibilities have only just begun for car connectivity.
Thanks to OnStar 4G LTE wireless connectivity and Apple CarPlay, Buick has highlighted its Audiobooks.com integration for reading aficionados craving a good read (listen) behind the wheel.
With the announcement, Audiobooks.com has also offered two free downloads for a book of the customer’s choice through the end of the year.
Although the feature will be available for use across each brand, research shows Buick drivers are 30-percent more likely to read for pleasure than any other drivers across the industry.
“Whether you are a morning commuter listening to the latest business book, a family listening to a book while driving on vacation, or a couple listening to a best seller on a weekend getaway, streaming audiobooks are a great way for drivers to discover a new favorite book while keeping their eyes on the road ahead,” said Ian Small, Audiobooks.com president and COO. “Now Buick owners can enjoy fresh entertainment content in their vehicles and the first two books are on us.”
For Buick models awaiting Apple CarPlay integration, the service may still be utilized via Bluetooth streaming.
