SiriusXM releases the second of the 2.0 radios called SiriusXM Lynx. It is compatible with Sirius XM basic, premium and 2.0 services (also known as +XTRA which includes 20 new channels including the Spanish line-up).


SiriusXM Lynx has “LOVE” button used for recording your favorite songs. It also has “Start Now” button that allows you to listen to scheduled programming. The pause, rewind and play function allows users to play previously played songs or programs. The multi-touch and full-color display provides easy control. You can also view album art and artist information. It comes with a rechargeable battery that works for 30 hours with one single full charge. It can record up to 200 hours of programming. The price is $249.98.

As Portable Radio

It can be used as a portable radio if within a WIFI network. That means you need to get the add-on internet radio subscription at $2.99 per month. If not within WIFI range, you may listen to the recorded songs and music saved (MP3) on a Micro SD card.

For Home and Vehicle

The device will receive Live XM service in your car using a compatible powerconnect vehicle kit (Model #SXiV1). Powerconnect is the term used by SiriusXM to refer to the technology of wireless FM modulation and color coded vehicle dock connections. For the first time in SiriusXM, the vehicle dock has a rotary knob for browsing channels. It also works at home using an optional home kit (Model# SXiBH1). Another first in SiriusXM is the Bluetooth home docking station. Both vehicle and car kit are sold separately at $69.98.
