Truckers Can Rock and Roll Down the Road with Satellite Radio

Delphi has introduced a satellite radio system for commercial truck applications.
With the introduction of satellite radio broadcasts, Delphi is helping commercial vehicle manufacturers provide truck drivers with the ability to receive radio programming despite the tremendous mileage they log each day. these
Delphi is featuring the receivers at the 2002 American Trucking Association Management Conference and Exhibition, marking the introduction of Sirius receivers validated specifically for heavy-duty trucks.
“Truck drivers, more than anyone, know the constraints of traditional radio,” said Bob Schumacher, business line executive for Delphi’s Wireless and Mobile MultiMedia businesses.
“We wanted to not only offer the capability to receive Sirius’ high-quality programming, but we wanted to provide units specifically built for the harsher environment of commercial vehicles.” “We provide 100 channels of digital quality radio, including 60 stations of commercial-free music, to offer a high level of choice to help keep drivers informed and entertained while on the road,” said Walter Kerner, Sirius senior director, special markets.
“With choices in virtually every music genre plus sports, news and entertainment channels, drivers really appreciate the value of Sirius satellite radio.”
