    XM Sat Radio for your carputer

    Hey everyone, I just found this link in a press release and thought it might be of some value for people looking to integrate XM in their carputer design.

    I have used XM in my brother-in-law's car and it really is great. The computer interface makes it better. Down in that link I posted is a link to the xm page with a demo. Here's the link:

    It looks pretty good.

    I saw this today too, I was just about to post but Jeff beat me to it. This would be a great thing to integrate with a car computer and it also makes it easier to do away with head units completely.

    I've had XM in my car for over a year now and it's a pretty nice service.

    I sent them an email asking for a programmer's interface.

    Let's you play games and surf the web without restriction, while listening to 100 channels of digital radio

    Only 9.99 a month, I wonder how fast it is.

    it doesnt use ANY bandwidth, it doesnt connect to the internet.
    This device doesnt let you surf the web, it is simply a PC satellite radio tuner.
    I assume they were talking about surfing the web without slowing your existing connection or cluttering up your screen. (Referring to PC users)
