Overview: The Delphi RoadyXT package
includes everything you need for in-car XM reception - the RoadyXT XM Satellite
Radio receiver, car cradle (with adhesive and vent mounts), a cassette adapter, a cigarette lighter power adapter, and a magnetic roof-mount
antenna. A subscription to XM Satellite Radio is also required. The unit also
has a built-in wireless FM adapter for easy connection to any car or home radio.
XM Satellite Radio: XM
Satellite Radio programming offers more than 150 digital radio channels
including 67 channels of commercial free music, plus news, sports, talk, comedy,
and other entertainment programming from coast to coast.
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 display features seven selectable colors: arctic, ocean, sunset,
spearmint, dusk, lime, and orchid. The contrast is also adjustable.
FM Frequency: RoadyXT's internal
FM modulator can be used to send the audio to your radio on an unused FM
station. You can choose from any frequency between: 88.1 and 107.9 MHz.
(In order to optimize the performance of this feature, the XM antenna should be
installed near your vehicle's FM antenna.)
Direct Entry: Using the numeric
buttons on the face of the receiver, you can directly access XM channels.
Channel Scanning: The RoadyXT
can scan through each channel, pausing long enough (approximately 5 seconds) to
allow you to hear programming, before moving on to the next channel.
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.
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 by beeping and flashing when a favorite song is played again on a channel other than the one you
are listening to. You can instantly switch to that channel by pressing the
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 RoadyXT is approximately 25 minutes delayed.
Info Extras: XM Satellite Radio
broadcasts information such as sports scores and other features at various
times. When activated, you can choose whether you want the display to scroll the
information from right to left continuously, or in pages one at a time.
Audio Level: You can adjust the
receiver's audio level output if it is too high, causing distortion, or too low
for your vehicle. The audio level has a range of 1-6, with the default setting
Auto-On: You have the option of
automatically turning on whenever it receives power (Auto-On), or turning the
unit on manually every time you want to listen to it.
Auto-Off: You can set the tuner
to automatically shut off 60, 120, or 180 minutes after it is turned on.
Car Mounts: The RoadyXT comes
with a docking cradle and two car mounts. One has a self-adhesive pad and two
screw holes and can be mounted to any flat surface by the adhesive or two
screws. The other mount features two clips that can be attached to an air vent.
Either car mount attaches to the docking cradle. Note: The antenna,
power, and audio output connections are made to the docking cradle.
Optional Home Kit: An optional home kit
(040SA10176) is available to enable you to listen to XM Radio in your home. The kit includes a docking station,
a remote, audio cables, an antenna and
