Thanks to Delphi's MyFi XM2go receiver, you can roam where you want — and bring XM with you everywhere you go.

And you can even store up to five hours of your favorite programming so you can have access to it at any time. Best of all, this package includes everything you need to take advantage of MyFi's versatility.

Thanks to Delphi's MyFi XM2go receiver, you can roam where you want — and bring XM with you everywhere you go. MyFi works as both a portable player and a plug-and-play receiver, so whether you're driving down the freeway, lounging in your den, or jogging around the neighborhood, you won't have to go without XM — ever. And you can even store up to five hours of your favorite programming so you can have access to it at any time. Best of all, this package includes everything you need to take advantage of MyFi's versatility.

Right out of the box, you get the MyFi receiver, two kits that let you play the receiver through your home and car stereos, earphones, a belt clip, a rechargeable battery, and a remote control.

To use the MyFi as a portable XM player, just charge up the battery by plugging the receiver in at home, connect the headphones, slip the receiver in the belt clip, and you're ready to go. The MyFi features an integrated antenna to deliver the signal. For even better reception, you can clip on the included wearable external antenna. When you use the MyFi as a portable, you'll get the best reception outdoors, away from obstructions.

When you're inside, you'll want to connect the MyFi to your home stereo with the home kit, which includes an antenna, a desktop stand (where all connections are made), an AC power adapter, and a minijack-to-RCA audio patch cable. The antenna can be mounted indoors or out, and will maintain steady contact with XM's satellites for optimum reception.

The car kit includes a magnetic roof-mount antenna, a cradle (where all connections are made), three mounting brackets, a DC power adapter, and a cassette adapter. If your in-dash receiver has an auxiliary input, you can connect the MyFi's cradle directly to it with an optional minijack-to-RCA cable. If your receiver has neither a cassette player nor an auxiliary input, don't worry: the MyFi also features a built-in wireless FM transmitter. You can use it to "broadcast" the XM signal to any in-dash stereo via an unused FM frequency (there are 12 frequencies from which to choose).

And here's the most amazing part of all: with the mere press of a button, the MyFi can capture up to five hours' worth of your favorite shows and songs, which you can go back and listen to anytime you like. It's a great feature when you're in a limited reception area like the subway or a windowless office and your live XM service is interrupted. When it's sitting in the home stand, you can even set the MyFi to capture at a specific time, so you can store your favorite programming even if you're not around.

As if all that weren't enough, MyFi also offers other killer features, like TuneSelect, which alerts you when any of 20 songs you've saved is playing anywhere on XM. You can also save the song name and artist info for up to 20 other songs so that you won't forget them the next time you hit your local music store.

To keep your favorite channels within easy reach, you can save up to 30 channel presets. And the large, easy-to-read display not only shows you all channel, song, and artist info, it offers perks such as a clock, a customizable stock-quote ticker (you can select up to 20 stock symbols), and information extras like sports scores.

A subscription to XM Satellite Radio is also required. XM brings you digital-quality music, news, sports, and entertainment, anywhere in the lower 48 states. (Service not available in Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. Territories.)

Excellent programming and reception in my area.

Features

Overview: The Delphi MyFi XM2go receiver works as both a portable player and a plug-and-play receiver. This package includes everything you need for in-car, in-home, and on-the-go XM reception. The car kit includes a magnetic roof-mount antenna, a cradle (where all connections are made), three mounting brackets, a DC power adapter, and a cassette adapter. If your in-dash receiver has an auxiliary input, you can connect the MyFi's cradle directly to it with an optional minijack-to-RCA cable. For receivers that have neither a cassette player nor an auxiliary input, the MyFi features a built-in wireless FM transmitter. The home kit includes an indoor/outdoor antenna, a desktop stand (where all connections are made), an AC power adapter, and a minijack-to-RCA audio patch cable. The MyFi also features a built-in recording dock that can capture up to five hours of XM programming.

Note: In many areas, XM has a network of terrestrial or ground repeaters to help increase signal coverage. If you are not in range of a repeater, the antenna should have an unobstructed view of the XM satellites in the southern sky. If not, you will experience service interruption.

XM Satellite Radio: XM Satellite Radio programming offers more than 120 digital radio channels including 68 channels of commercial free music, plus news, sports, talk, comedy, and other entertainment programming from coast to coast.

Backlit Display: While tuned to an XM channel, the LCD screen contains the following information: listening mode, channel selection mode, channel number, channel name, song or program title, artist name, clock, alarm indicator, battery level and charging status, signal strength indicator, and additional info (volume/playback bars, Stock Ticker, and Info Extras).

Dial: The dial can be used to scroll through channel or menu options. Pressing the dial 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 dial so that it automatically selects a channel each time it is rolled, without having to press the dial 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 dial to preview the artists and songs currently playing on other channels without having to tune away from 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 20 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.

Stock Ticker: This feature lets you track up to 20 of your favorite stocks and indices. You can track any stock symbol and most indices listed on the NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX. The stock market index information on the MyFi is approximately 25 minutes delayed.

Info Extras: XM Satellite Radio will broadcast information such as sports scores and other features from time to time. This feature allows you to view the current Info Extras offerings.

Audio Level: You can adjust the receiver's audio level output if it is too high, causing distortion, or too low for your vehicle.

Sleep Timer: You can set the sleep timer to shut off your MyFi automatically after a period of time. The sleep timer can be set to 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes.

Alarm: The alarm turns on your MyFi at a certain time; you can choose to be alerted by a beep or by XM programming.

Delayed Power Off: You can set the tuner to automatically shut off 60, 90, 120, or 180 minutes after it is turned on.

2go: The MyFi features a built-in recording dock that can capture up to five hours of XM programming. You can store what's currently playing, or you can schedule up to two different recording sessions.

Using MyFi At Home: The package includes everything you need to connect the MyFi to your home audio system: an indoor/outdoor antenna, a desktop stand (where all connections are made), an AC power adapter, and a minijack-to-RCA audio patch cable.

Home Antenna: The home antenna gives you interior or exterior mounting options, and features a hinged base for flexible positioning. The antenna can be placed on any horizontal surface or mounted vertically to an interior or exterior wall.

Using MyFi In Your Vehicle: The package includes everything you need to connect the MyFi to your in-dash receiver: a magnetic roof-mount antenna, a cradle (where all connections are made), three mounting brackets, a DC power adapter, and a cassette adapter. If your in-dash receiver has an auxiliary input, you can connect the MyFi's cradle directly to it with an optional minijack-to-RCA cable. For receivers that have neither a cassette player nor an auxiliary input, the MyFi features a built-in wireless FM transmitter.

FM Frequency: MyFi's internal FM modulator can be used to send the audio to your radio on an unused FM station. You can choose from 12 different stations: 88.1, 88.3, 88.5, 88.7, 88.9, 106.7, 106.9, 107.1, 107.3, 107.5, 107.7, and 107.9 MHz.

Car Antenna: The car 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.

Mounting Vehicle Cradle: The vehicle cradle can be mounted in one of three different ways in your vehicle:

  • Flush Mount: Using the supplied self-adhesive pad, the vehicle cradle can be mounted onto any flat surface in your vehicle.
    • Note: Do not install the mount on a leather surface. Doing so could permanently damage the surface.
  • Vent Mount: Using the supplied vent mount, you can attach the MyFi and vehicle cradle to any horizontal air vent that can support their combined weight.
  • Swivel Mount: The swivel mount can be attached to any flat surface using the supplied self-adhesive pad.
    • Note: Do not install the mount on a leather surface. Doing so could permanently damage the surface.

Using MyFi On The Go: The MyFi contains a built-in antenna that works best when the MyFi receiver is upright. Use the belt clip to hold the MyFi in the proper position; laying the MyFi down flat may weaken reception.

Note: In many areas, XM has a network of terrestrial or ground repeaters to help increase signal coverage. If you are not in range of a repeater, the antenna should have an unobstructed view of the XM satellites in the southern sky. If not, you will experience service interruption.

Wearable Antenna: You can use the wearable antenna when you want to improve signal reception, or if you carry your MyFi in a bag or close to your body.

Belt Clip/Stand: The belt clip doubles as a table stand. The clip simply pulls out and locks into place, providing the "leg" section of the stand.

Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable battery provides up to 5 hours of playback.
