SiriusXM introduces SiriusXM commander touch

Tuesday, Jan 05, 2016

SiriusXM today announced the introduction of the new SiriusXM Commander Touch, its latest aftermarket satellite radio that lets listeners enjoy SiriusXM through the in-dash audio system of their vehicles.

"SiriusXM Commander Touch gives drivers who want SiriusXM in their vehicle an innovative solution for installation without replacing their vehicle's factory-installed radio," said Joe Verbrugge, Executive Vice President, Sales and Development, SiriusXM.  "The Commander Touch integrates seamlessly into the vehicle, giving drivers and their passengers access to the best entertainment available on the road."

The easy to operate SiriusXM Commander Touch is designed to deliver the best SiriusXM listening experience to customers, including commercial-free music; plus, premier sports talk and live events; comedy; news; exclusive talk and entertainment, and a wide-range of Latin music, sports and talk programming.

The Commander Touch includes everything needed for a professional installation.  The compact touchscreen color display can mount safely just about anywhere in the vehicle for the driver's convenience, and the hideaway tuner can be installed behind the vehicle's dashboard with concealed wiring.  For a more custom look, a professional installer can use the included flush mounting kit to integrate into the vehicle's dash.

SiriusXM Commander Touch was selected as a CES Innovation Honoree reflecting its innovative design and engineering and offers listeners an impressive list of features and capabilities, including:

  • •    Compact touchscreen controller is only 4.1"W x 1.7" H x 0.5" D and mounts directly to the vehicle dash. The tuner module hides discreetly behind the dash for a fully integrated look.
