This system allows players to identify any song currently playing on their car radio by dialing 948-555-0100; an automated Message from Lazlow will ask you to let him hear the song. You will then receive a text message providing the name of the song and the artist. If signed up to Rockstar Games Social Club, you'll also receive a (real) e-mail titled New Song From ZiT at Rockstar Games Social Club with the name of the song, artist, give you a link to iTunes and will save the song in a ZiT Player to give you a preview.
ZiT has an advertisement that can be heard in most radio stations in GTA IV.
