Car receivers with built-in satellite radio receiver?

This question is answered

In the satellite radio FAQ, it mentions that one route for putting satellite radio in you car is a receiver with a built-in satellite radio tuner.

My question: ARE there any receivers available with a BUILT-IN satellite radio tuner?

Verified Answer
  • Essentially, no - Alpine (and Kenwood) had a few models with that about 5 years ago - the FAQ probably needs to be updated.  The current methods are basically a brand specific (Pioneer, Sony, Alpine) tuner, a universal tuner (Sirius, Audiovox) with a manufacturer wiring connector, or a Plug-N-Play radio with a car adapter.

    Hope This Helps!!!
