Routine, no, but several car companies do offer them as an option.  If you
go to a store that sells aftermarket car radios, you will see several radios
(JVC, Dual) that have HD built-in, and other radios (Kenwood, Alpine, Sony,
and possibly others) that will receive HD with a dedicated outboard module.
These stores would not be carrying these if they were not selling.
