Sirius XM unveils XM Snap

Posted in XM by Conner Flynn on September 30th, 2010

The XM Snap accessory has endured FCC testing and has now been officially revealed, no worse for wear. Sadly, it will not support Android devices but simply be an in-car satellite radio receiver that’s much easier to install than a head end unit. The device plugs into your vehicle’s power outlet and includes a stem that will hold up the control panel.

The panel includes a rotary knob for changing channels, some preset keys and arrows and a high-contrast display. The bundle also includes a magnetic mount antenna for attaching to your roof, hood or trunk, though it is wired. There’s also an auxiliary input cable for plugging into a vehicle’s aux-in jack.

Sirius XM SkyDock converts your iPhone into a Satellite RadioSirius XM’s SkyDock isn’t super sexy. It isn’t elegant. It is what it is, a standalone satellite radio receiver with an iPod connector that will let you listen to space radio on your iPhone or iPod Touch. And that’s fine with us because it’s the only way to do so.

The dock uses iPhone OS 3.0′s new hardware support and plugs into your car’s DC jack for power and support. This dock will cost you $120, plus the required subscription to Sirius XM radio. A free companion app sets your iPhone up as a radio controller. Pretty cool.

Liberty Media rescues Sirius XMSirius XM recently just barely avoided bankruptcy and so they are on the hunt for profits once more and hoping to regain interest from consumers. CFO David Frear has confirmed that the company is developing an iPhone and iPod touch app.

This could get interesting. We will have to see how pricing works with this app. Perhaps users can get an iPhone subscription only. Or maybe it will be a part of standard subscriptions. The app should launch in the second quarter of the year.

The article speculates that the move might be designed to pressure Dish Network and EchoStar owner Charles Ergen into making an offer. According to the Wall Street Journal, he offered to purchase the satellite radio group last year, but was brushed off. Anyway, he apparently wants to try again.

You’ll even be able to pause and rewind up to 60 minutes of live programming. XM Sirius has also rolled out a new “Sirius Everything plus XM Everything” package for the radio, which will cost you $19.99 a month. Apparently it gives you everything you’d get when you subscribe to the two separate services.
