CommanderMT lets you take XM out of the car

XM CommanderMT dash

XM Radio has decided to upgrade its Commander in-car faceplate with the CommanderMT, now showing at CES. Whereas the previous Commander had the tuner hardwired inside, the MT replaces it with an XM Mini-Tuner, which can be taken out of the dash and used in any XM Ready audio system, such home stereos or other vehicles. Notably, though, the MT may still require a professional installation due to changes to the FM modulator, mandated by the FCC. Both Commanders add XM support to any car's pre-existing FM radio system. [Via Orbitcast]
