Delphi and XM Satellite Radio today brought forth the RoadyXT, which Delphi says is the thinnest satellite radio ever. Priced at $79.95, is it available now at consumer electronics retailers nationwide.
The RoadyXT is 2.25â€ x 3.7â€ x 0.7â€ and weighs 2.6 ounces. The product has a built-in FM transmitter, which will make any FM radio an XM radio by wirelessly transmitting XM Satellite Radio to any one of 100 FM radio frequencies with no cassette deck necessary. Optional accessories allow a plug and play installation at home or in a vehicle.
Other features of the RoadyXT include a high-contrast display screen with seven color displays, direct satellite radio channel entry with backlit keys, customizable sports and stock tickers which display in the player’s screen and a feature which alerts listeners when their favorite songs and artists are playing on any XM channel.
“The Delphi RoadyXT is one of the best bets for this year’s holiday gift,” said Joseph A. Damato, director, consumer electronics, Delphi Product & Service Solutions. “RoadyXT sets the standard for size, elegance and functionality. With its new features and extra-thin design, RoadyXT continues in the tradition of representing one of, if not, the best consumer values for satellite radio receivers in the market.”
