Ever heard a song on the radio and don't know what it's called…

All the new car radios and hi fi systems should come with a LCD display capable of picking up a text signal, displaying the current song playing, or what this current segment title is, they could even have advertising, or upcoming events etc. Obviously the radio station would be in charge of what is being displayed. I believe though displaying the song title would be the most useful use, for it will increase the music revenue.

great idea...and with the push of a button, store the song title to a tiny detachable dashboard computer...to purchase or download later at your leisure.

when i was in europe they did this in our VW van. The head unit displayed the song, album, and artist. when adds and stuff were on it displayed weather, traffic and the latest news. Good idea thoguh

I think this is a great idea. How about putting this idea on one or more forums on the internet that specialise in broadcasting matters and see what responses you get, and let us know the results. mtd28student - was your VW van playing broadcast music or taped music? Jim10 - "and with the push of a button, store the song title to a tiny detachable dashboard computer...to purchase or download later at your leisure" - agreed - good suggestion!

I believe this is already common via the satellite linked auto radios.
I’m just waiting for the price of the service to come down.

It's already available as standard equipment on many of the high end vehicles today. I have a year 2000 Land Rover and it has this feature. It automatically displays the title of the song and the artist's name without having to do anything to call it up. The only downside to this is that it is up to the radio station to decide whether or not they want to go to the extra bother and/or expense to send out this data to your radio. Very few radio stations in my area actually send out this information for the radio to pick up and display.
