Blitz Safe plans to release at CES this January, SkyLink Direct, a docking station for the Delphi XM SkyFi radio that allows it to work anywhere in the car and to be controlled from an OEM or aftermarket radio.
According to Blitz Safe, the SkyLink retains all of the SkyFi's scan and access functions, permitting them to be accessed from the user's current radio controls. The SkyLink also allows the SkyFi to be removed and replaced for transportability.
"If you have a SkyFi, now you have this big thing sitting on your dash destroying the ergonomics of your car. People want the factory look and they don't want to have clutter in the car. And it's a much safer environment," said Blitz Safe president/CEO Ira Marlowe.
The SkyFi is a leading XM Satellite Radio component.
Blitz Safe's SkyLink can mount in the trunk, under the seat, glove compartment and other locations. It comes with a cradle, a micro antenna and specific interfaces for various cars and radios. Suggested retail price is expected to fall in the neighborhood of $129, including the interface and antenna.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
