XM Ships CommanderMT

XM today officially launched the CommanderMT, a new receiver for its radio network which is designed for unintrusiveness. A universal connection ensures that the radio works with most existing first- and third-party car stereos with inputs, including integrated units that may not be removable from the vehicle itself. All relevant track info is visible through a four-line monochrome display, including signal strength and other channel-independent information. XM's device earns its MT name through use of the company's Mini-Tuner slot, which provides a SIM card-like ability to install and remove a subscription module without it being tied to any one radio.

The CommanderMT is bundled with a wireless remote, an XM Mini-Tuner, and a DIN car mounting kit to fit into dashes with free space. Units arrive later in the month and sell through XM's own store for $180.
