HOW TO LISTEN TO oWOW IN A VEHICLE
SMARTPHONE TO VEHICLE RADIO
There are several methods to stream oWOW from mobile devices to your vehicle’s radio.
The most common is to stream oWOW from a smartphone or other mobile device by using Bluetooth technology. Your smartphone serves as a mini-transmitter by streaming to a Bluetooth receiver either integral or installed into your vehicle’s radio or dash.
oWOW streaming will not challenge your data plan. Streaming oWOW burns less data and battery power. Unlike Pandora, Spotify and radio station portals iHeart Radio (Clear Channel), and Radio.com (CBS Radio), oWOW does NOT retrieve personal data from your smartphone while your streaming. Streaming from Pandora, Spotify, and radio station chain-owned portals is the chief cause of excessive data and battery power burn.
Most automotive and big box stores carry in-vehicle radios and entertainment systems with built-in Bluetooth technology.
OLDER MODEL VEHICLES
If you have an older vehicle with a limited AM-FM radio, you may have an AUX input, which allows you to run an auxiliary cable with the appropriate size plug OUT of the earphone jack of your phone directly into the AUX IN.
INTERNET RADIO TRANSMITTER
If your vehicle has only a standard FM radio, universal wireless FM transmitters are available for $5 to $15 in most retail outlets and discount stores. Plug the device into your vehicle’s power source. The device receives the oWOW stream from your smartphone and transmits it to an vacant frequency on your FM car radio.
CASSETTE, CD DEVICE
If you have a vehicle that was manufactured when cassette or CD players were installed, for between $5 and $10 in retail outlets and discount stores you can purchase a transmitter that can be plugged into your smartphone and inserted in your cassette or CD player. When engaged, it routinely transmits from your smartphone.
