Warning Against Aerospace Use
Overview: The Roady package
includes everything you need for in-car XM reception - the Roady XM Satellite
Radio receiver, a cassette adapter, a cigarette lighter power adapter, and a magnetic roof-mount antenna. A subscription to XM Satellite Radio is also required.
XM Satellite Radio: XM
Satellite Radio programming features up to 101 channels of digital-quality
music, news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming nationwide,
many of which are commercial free.
Display: While tuned to an XM
channel, the display contains the following information: artist name, channel
name and number, display mode indicator, category search indicator, signal
strength indicator, and keypad mode (Direct, Preset A, or Preset B). The
receiver features seven selectable display colors, plus three colored
faceplates, so you can totally personalize it.
Tuning Wheel: The Tuning Wheel
can be used to scroll through channel or menu options. Pressing the Tuning Wheel
allows you to select the current channel or menu option.
Direct Entry: Using the numeric
buttons on the face of the receiver, you can directly access XM channels.
Direct Tune: This feature
changes the functionality of the Tuning Wheel so that it automatically selects a
channel each time it is rolled, without having to press the Tuning Wheel in.
Channel Presets: The receiver
can store up to 30 preset channels. They are organized into three different
groups, or memory banks, Preset A, Preset B, and Preset C. Each memory bank can
store up to 10 channels.
Channel Preview: You can use
the Tuning Wheel to preview the artists and songs currently playing on other
channels before deciding whether or not to leave your current channel.
Artist Name and Song Title Memory:
You can save the artist's name and song title on the current channel for future
reference. Up to 15 different artist names/song titles can be saved at once,
after which any new information that is saved will replace the oldest
information in memory.
Tune Select: Using this
function, you can program the receiver to alert you with a tone and display
change when a favorite song is played again on a channel other than the one you
are listening to.
Audio Level: You can adjust the
receiver's audio level output if it is too high, causing distortion, or too low
for your vehicle.
Auto-off: You can set the tuner
to automatically shut off 60, 120, or 180 minutes after it is turned on.
Car Mount: Using the supplied
car mount with attached adhesive pad, the receiver can be mounted to any flat
surface in your vehicle. The car mount has a ball joint that allows you to
swivel the receiver for optimum viewing. Using the extra adhesive pad and car
mount bracket, you can mount the receiver directly to your vehicle's dashboard
without using the car mount.
Optional Home Kit: An optional home kit may be purchased directly from XM Radio, by calling 1-866-824-5340. The kit is
$19.99 plus tax, shipping & handling, and it includes a docking station, an antenna and
a power supply.
