PassAlong Networks has teamed with MP3Car.com and Gracenote to bring to market a service that will give music fans the ability to download music directly to their car stereos.

MP3Car.com manufacturers the StreetDeck in-car navigation and entertainment system, which already offers such music services as Yahoo LaunchCast Internet radio, podcast delivery and satellite radio support. It is adding a digital music download store powered by PassAlong's StoreBlocks technology, also used by TransWorld's f.y.e. online music service and Procter & Gamble's HomeMadeSimple.com site.

PassAlong has a catalog of about 2 million tracks, all in unprotected MP3 format.
