LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Connected
Vehicle Trade Association

technologies and partnerships that will offer an improved future music
experience in the connected vehicle. Requirements will be published in

“Customer experience goes hand in hand with connectivity in the
vehicle,” said Scott McCormick, President of CVTA, “and music is an
essential part of the driving experience. It is imperative that all the

to getting a 360-degree solution that is both desired and
implementable,” said Juliet Shavit, Executive Director of MusiComms.

As part of identifying these requirements, both organizations will
