European company Inrete has introduced a device that plugs into a car’s USB port to give drivers the latest audio files from a personal cloud storage service or podcasts from channels. Automatica creates a local cache of your content and stores 24 hours of audio within the internal flash memory.

It syncs with Dropbox, Google Drive, Box or Microsoft SkyDrive and wi-fi connectivity allows for automatic audio content updates, making the latest content always available to users. The device leverages the wi-fi available where you’re parked as well as your smartphone wi-fi tethering while driving. Automatica is available for pre-order now via the website for $99. Giorgio Bernardi, president of Inrete, said:

This plug and play device allows for users that have a USB port in their vehicle to enjoy instant audio content – without any further modifications to the vehicle. Our goal is to simplify this process by making it easy to use, yet make it personal for each user with our online interface.
