SiriusXM already has an amazing array of great programs, and it's getting better all the time. With the Onyx EZR Dock & Play satellite radio, it's easier than ever to see what you're listening to and switch back and forth between all your favorites. This compact, portable tuner is easy to install, easy to read, and easy to enjoy, and this package includes a car kit with everything you need to get started.
Everything you need to mount the Onyx EZR in your car or truck
A bigger, better screen
The Onyx EZR's 3.2" display allows you to view artist name, song or program title, and channel information in just a glance. You can even choose your background — white-on-black or black-on-white — which can be a big help if glare is an issue in your vehicle. The bigger screen means more room for usable info, too – you can use the split-screen function to see what's playing at the moment and also see what's on your other favorite channels.
Find your favorites fast
You can store up to 10 favorite channels for one-touch access, and the face also includes a TuneMix key that lets you listen to selections from all your favorites. The handy One-Touch Jump™ button lets you switch back to the last channel you were listening to, or check out traffic and weather. The keypad is designed with comfort and ease of use in mind, so you can switch to a favorite channel or find the function you need in a hurry.
A complete kit for your car
For best performance, use the Aux In cable that's included with the Onyx kit. If your car's radio doesn't have an aux input, you can also use the included SiriusXM PowerConnect™ system to deliver clear sound through your vehicle's FM radio. You'll also get the other accessories you'll need for installation in your car — a car cradle and antenna, plus dash and vent mounts.
Note: A subscription is required and sold separately by SiriusXM. Some channels are not available in all packages. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Alaska, Hawaii or U.S. territories. You can, however, stream SiriusXM throughout the satellite service area, as well as Alaska and Hawaii.
