Sirius adds gas prices, showtimes, and weather

Sirius Data Services

In a lower-key announcement than for its Stiletto 2, Sirius today added three new data services to its existing traffic option. Compatible tuners can now check multi-day weather forecasts for either the immediate area or a specific city. Owners can also now search for recently updated gas prices at nearby stations and receive notices when those stations' prices drop below a certain threshhold, Sirius says. Searches for movie showtimes are equally new and let owners of GPS units automatically add a theater to their current route.

Using the service currently requires equipment from stereo maker Alpine, including both its SIR-ALP10T SiriusConnect receiver ($300) and either one of the company's in-car entertainment head-ends or its NVE-N872A navigation system. The service is not expected to remain tied to Alpine hardware, though Sirius has not confirmed any future devices. [via Orbitcast]
