Important Notice: Legacy Radio Server Shutting Down


Grace Digital Internet Radios manufactured between 2007 and 2017 will stop working

The internet radio station finding service used by our legacy internet radios is being discontinued by the 3rd party service provider, Qualcomm Inc.  This will affect Grace Digital internet radios manufactured between the years of 2007 and 2017 including the original Mondo.  (Please note; the Mondo Plus, Mondo Classic, and Mondo Elite are not affected).

 

The managed shut down will begin on November 4th, 2020 and will be completed by May 21st, 2021.  Anticipating the eventual shutdown, Grace Digital has already developed a faster and more feature rich internet radio platform. Radios developed after 2017 are on the new platform and will not be affected. The models that are not affected start with model number ‘GDI-WH’ otherwise known as:

 

• Mondo plus / Mondo plus classic /Mondo elite / Mondo elite Classic

• Encore plus

• Grace Link / Grace Link Amp

 

The new Grace Digital platform features quad core microprocessors, over double the available radio stations, NPR, FOX news, BBC,CBS radio, Chromecast audio built in, and music services such as Amazon Music, SiriusXM, Bluetooth streaming and Pandora coming in late January 2021. These new internet radios do not use a 3rd party server network to operate.

 

If you have a legacy internet radio, to help with the transition, Grace Digital will offer special one time discounts to effected customers. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please press the following button and provide key information to our customer service team.

 

Please note: When your radio is shut down by the third party provider the menus on your radio will change and many items will no longer be accessible. However, based on the current information provided to Grace Digital the presets will continue to function for basic internet radio stations.

 

If you would like to continue use of your legacy radio please program your favorite 10 stations to your presets.  However, please note this strategy will only work with standard radio stations. Pandora, and SiriusXM will NOT function on a saved preset as the 3rd party servers are required for those services to function properly.
