The Delphi MyFi (MSRP: $350), honored with the 2005 "Best of Innovations" award in the portable audio category by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), comes complete with all accessories needed to enjoy XM at home, at work, in a vehicle or on the go. As the most advanced satellite radio available, MyFi offers a complete package of components and features including an integrated rechargeable battery, built-in antenna and wireless FM transmitter.

MyFi's revolutionary technology makes it possible to experience XM Satellite Radio effortlessly through a "live" listening mode or anywhere, anytime through a time-shifting "My XM" memory mode which allows users to store up to five hours of XM's outstanding content with the press of a button, even when the unit is not in use.

Delphi Corp. announced today that it is expanding its satellite radio product line-up with the introduction of the Delphi XM Signal Repeater -- the first system that wirelessly rebroadcasts the XM satellite signal throughout most homes and smaller offices.

Innovatively designed, the repeater system includes both a transmitter and receive module. The transmitter down-converts the XM signal through the XM home or audio system antenna and rebroadcasts it through interior walls and floors at an expected distance between 75 and 100 feet. While in range, one or more receive modules can acquire and up-convert the signal back to the natural XM frequency -- passing it through just like a typical XM antenna. The end result is continues XM programming wirelessly throughout an indoor environment.

The Delphi XM Signal Repeater will debut at major consumer electronics stores this spring, at an expected retail price of $169 for the complete system and $69 for each additional receive module.

Delphi and Comcast Corporation also announce an agreement today under which the two companies will work together to develop ways to allow users to select video content, transfer it to an in-vehicle entertainment system, and take it with them on the go.

Under the agreement, Delphi will work to develop an electronic consumer device for use in vehicles that enables the transfer and user selected playback of video, and Comcast will examine ways to allow users to access video content.
