Frequently Asked Questions Roady XT
What is the Delphi Roady XT?
The Roady XT is the third generation Roady product from Delphi. It is the smallest and lightest plug and play satellite radio receiver on the market. The Roady XT comes with everything needed to function in a vehicle.
How does it work?
The receiver accepts the 150 Channel, XM signal through the mini-micro antenna and plays in the vehicle with three different options. The tape adaptor comes with the unit and the built-in wireless FM transmitter makes any radio an XM radio. Simply turn the radio to the same station as the receivers' preset FM frequency and 100% digital music will be playing through the vehicle's speakers. The third option is the FM Direct Adaptor, which plugs into the head unit and cuts out all other FM frequencies so the receivers¿ transmitter works with no interference.
How does the wireless FM transmitter work?
Because many vehicles today have the FM antenna in the front or rear window, the internal FM Modulator also transmits the FM signal via the XM antenna as this is closer to the actual vehicle's FM antenna.
How many user-selected frequencies can the built-in FM Modulator on the Roady XT receiver transmit audio on, turning any FM radio into an XM radio?
