HONDA TO OFFER XM RADIO ON KEY ACURA AND HONDA MODELS

Washington D.C., January 16, 2003 -- XM Satellite Radio, America's leading satellite radio service, will be available as an option on several key Acura and Honda models, Honda announced. Scheduled to be released in the spring of 2003, the 2004 Acura RL will be delivered with XM Satellite Radio hardware as standard equipment. This will be followed by the all-new 2004 TL sedan in the Fall. For Honda products, a dealer-installed option will be available in the spring on the 2003 Accord and Pilot. The Honda Division of American Honda expects to have XM Satellite Radio factory-installed beginning with the 2004 Accord. "We are delighted to see Honda's strong commitment to satellite radio factory-installed in key Acura and Honda models," said Hugh Panero, XM President and CEO. According to American Honda, it will expand the availability of XM-ready radios to additional Honda and Acura models during the 2005 model year and into the future.

I'm not a big fan of satellite radio, but hey, more power to the people, I guess.

Hmm, if I'm not mistaken TL/CL/RL models carry bose stereo systems correct? Will this next stereo be Bose/XM in one headunit?

Interesting...

If you want XM in your old HU. They make add ons.. Just plugs into your ant port.. Set to a certain channel. You just change the xm channel on a special unit you put on your dash or in Glove box..

I think the quality on the FM modulator versions would be less than the others though.
