Inputs and Outputs
Overview: When used with a compatible Eclipse
navigation head unit, this tuner allows you to
receive SIRIUS satellite radio and SIRIUS real-time traffic programming in your vehicle. In addition to this
tuner and antenna, you must have a separate subscription to both SIRIUS Radio
and SIRIUS Traffic to receive
SIRIUS digital satellite radio signals and real-time traffic information.
Note: It is possible to
activate only the SIRIUS radio or SIRIUS Traffic portion of the tuner. The
Tuner has two SID numbers located on the bottom of the unit used for
activation. One is labeled "Audio" which is used to activate SIRIUS's radio
service and the other is labeled "Data" which is used to activate SIRIUS's
SIRIUS Traffic: SIRIUS Traffic
provides navigational traffic information for 22 major metropolitan areas in the
continental USA. SIRIUS Traffic conveys navigations traffic information for
visual display on a compatible navigation system. Using a navigation system
(such as the Eclipse AVN6610), traffic data from SIRIUS is displayed either
superimposed on a navigation map or in a list type format displayed on the
headunit's navigation screen. The data provides traffic speed and flow
information as well as scheduled and unscheduled incidents, alerting you to
congestion, accident, road construction, detours, and other traffic related
information as you drive. The SIRIUS Traffic data is updated frequently enabling
you to be up-to-date regarding traffic situations. Based on the information from
SIRIUS Traffic, your navigation system can then plan alternate routes before you
get caught in traffic and if you make a wrong turn, the system can recalculate
your route and get you back on track in seconds without traffic delays.
Auto Avoid: When you select
Auto Avoid Traffic on your compatible headunit the system checks for the best
route every 5 minutes based on traffic congestion.
Traffic Flow Information: When
the system receives information about traffic flow (congestion), you can choose
whether to display the traffic flow information on your navigation unit's map
screen. You can choose to view or not to view the following - Free Flowing
Traffic, Traffic Jams or Stationary Traffic.
SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS
Satellite Radio features more than 120 streams of original programming beamed
coast-to-coast, including 65 streams of commercial-free, digital-quality music,
plus news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming.
Note: Satellite radio
service is available only within the contiguous United States. Service
is not available in Alaska and Hawaii.
Compatibility: This Sirius and
Traffic tuner is compatible with the Eclipse AVN6610 navigation headunit through
the unit's E-LAN and Data port connection.
CD Changer Pass-Thru:
The SIRIUS radio + Traffic tuner uses the CD changer and Data input on the Eclipse head unit. If
you also want to use a CD changer, there is a CD changer pass-through connection
on the SIRIUS radio tuner, so they can be daisy chained together.
SIRIUS Antenna: The SIRIUS
antenna has a powerful magnetic base that allows you to mount the antenna on the
roof or trunk lid of your vehicle. The antenna needs to be positioned in such a
way that it will be free of mechanical and line-of-sight obstructions.
