Product Description

Product Description

The Delphi MyFi, the first personal, portable XM2GO satellite radio that delivers XM's Ultimate PlayList™ anytime, anywhere - at home, at work, in the car and now, on the go.

The MyFi's live mode enables users to listen live to all of XM's 68 commercial-free music channels, plus premier news, sports, talk, traffic and weather channels. MyFi's memory mode - called "My XM" -- allows users to store five hours or more of XM's outstanding content with the press of a button, even when the unit is not in use. The MyFi makes it possible to enjoy XM Satellite Radio anywhere, anytime, effortlessly. Large, illuminated six-line LCD display. Up to 30 channel presets. Built-in alarm clock.

Amazon.com Review The biggest boost yet for satellite radiohas to be Delphi's radiant MyFi XM2GO portable satellite radio receiver and digital music player. The MyFi can record and play back up to 5 hours of XM's digital programming whenever and wherever you choose. It requires a subscription to XM satellite radio ($12.95/month), but just


Compact and easy, to use the MyFi offers 150 XM satellite channels.
about everything else you could want for home, outdoor, or car listening comes in the box. XM's 150 channels include 67 commercial-free music channels as well as premier news, sports, talk, traffic, and weather listings.

The MyFi comes with a densely packed carton of accessories, including everything from headphones and antennas to a remote control, belt clips, and separate docking apparatus for integrating the receiver with your home and car stereos.



Smaller than a PDA, the receiver exudes greatness even before you hear it: it's just heavy enough to seem solidly built yet light enough to merit the term "portable." The receiver even comes with world-class manuals, from its tips sheet to the longer quick-start guide to the 42-page user's manual (separate English and Spanish editions of each are provided).

An illuminated six-line LCD is your gateway to browsing XM's programming. You can browse by station, by category, or (our favorite) by currently playing artist. Thirty channel presets simplify access to your favorites, and a handy memo button stores artist and song data for up to 20 performances you'd like to look into later (or find again on XM).

Any satellite radio system requires a fairly heavy-duty antenna. Accordingly, the MyFi comes with four: one for the home (place it in a south-facing window), one for the car (mount it on the roof or trunk), a clip-on antenna for when you're hoofing it, and a built-in antenna. Our home reception was perfect--we never experienced a single drop out. Car reception was spottier, though still excellent. You just have to get used to the fact that where analog radio gets noisier in areas with poor reception, satellite radio drops out altogether; it's either all there, crystal clear, or all absent. And that's where My XM, MyFi's recording feature, comes in handy.



The MyFi mounts easily in most vehicles.

My XM lets you record XM programming to MyFi's onboard memory--perfect for time shifting your listening (as with a news program or a scheduled performance on XM Live) or for tuning in when you'll be someplace lacking XM reception (in a canyon, on a subway, in a windowless cubicle, etc.). You can schedule a recording or start and stop recording at any time you wish, and new recordings pick up where you last stopped. But you can't erase anything unless you clear the memory--which means you can't whittle away songs you don't like to retain your favorites. It's also important to remember that when you've filled the unit's memory (128 MB, or 5+ hours of full bitrate XM radio), it'll record over earlier material, starting from the top. During playback, however, My XM lets you skip easily from track to track and even pick from a list of all tracks.

You can configure the MyFi's LCD to scroll stock and sports-score tickers, a great way to keep an eye on important stats. The receiver also features a built-in sleep timer (15 minutes to 1 hour) and an alarm clock (wake to a beep or to XM programming).

What's in the Box

For car use, you have a choice of mounting options for the vehicle cradle: flush mount, vent mount, or swivel mount. The cradle houses a power jack for a DC vehicle power adapter (included), an antenna input, and an audio output for use with the provided cassette-shell audio adapter. You can use the cassette adapter or the MyFi's built-in wireless FM transmitter, which turns any FM radio into an XM radio. (Audio quality is better using the supplied cassette audio adapter, however. You may also purchase a wired FM adapter, though XM asserts that the cassette adapter sounds better than that, too.)



The Delphi XM MyFi comes complete with all of the accessories needed to enjoy XM anywhere.

Positioning the car antenna can be inelegant, despite its heavy-duty magnet. You can have it professionally installed or live with an exposed antenna cord, though XM recommends using "existing holes, body grommets, and other wiring channels" rather than closing a door over the cord on a daily basis. The receiver's battery pack proved good for about five hours between charges. The included earbud headphones are neither comfortable nor particularly well made; a nicer set would represent XM's strong sound quality. --Michael Mikesell

Customer Reviews

It has now been over 2 months since I sent in the parts for exchange, and I have yet to get the replacements.

Overall, I'm impressed and very happy with my unit, and I recommend it to anyone wanting to get into satellite radio.
Tee
Even when you just carry around the device, there's a long clip-on antenna you need to use to get good reception.

I've had my MyFi for a week now and I must say that it has exceeded my expectations. I do live in an urban area where reception is great (DC) but I find that I rarely use the live programming when on the run and just rely on my recorded content.

First what's great about the MyFi:

1) I'm new to satellite radio and was very impressed with the variety of music available. I've discovered lots of artists that while I had my Ipod I never knew existed. Add to that the great live events, talk radio, and other content.

2) XM2Go works flawlessly. But for the limitations (below) it works flawlessly. Pop your MyFi in the cradle at night and in the morning you have 5+ hours of content. Note, the box says 5 hours but in reality if you record any of the more compressed channels (talk etc.) you will end up being able to record more than 5 hours! I believe when I record music channels I actually get closer to 6 hours of recorded content. Once you have your content you can easily scroll from song to song. Skip the ones you don't like. Replay the ones you do.

3) It is truly portable. I go from pocket (headphones), to car (FM transmitter), to home cradle (line-in to the stereo) without ever interrupting listening.

4) It comes with everything you need, including a remote control so you can easily switch channels as your MyFi sits in its cradle across the room (you can't say that about the Ipod). Further, what it comes with is great quality. I love the swivel car cradle - not only do you not have to worry about plugging wires into the MyFi everytime you bring it into the car (they are plugged into the cradle), it makes reading the display a breeze for both the driver and the passenger (just swivel it between the two).

5) Replaceable battery.

Verified Purchase
First let me say that I have only had the MyFi since Christmas (yes, my wife was one of
the people who actually got one). I waited until now to write a review so that I could
get a good feel for the product. Some other reviewers on this page have laid out some of
my pluses and minuses, so I may be reaffirming their comments. First, the great-

1) The programming. XM has tons of stations. I listen to a wide variety of music, and I
was able to fill up the 30 available presets rather quickly. One form of music I
particularily like is techno/trance, and there are 3 channels that play some form of it.
Also, there are 3 comedy channels, and on 2 of them they run segments of stand-up
routines from pretty much any comic out there. Very funny. Also, I paid extra for "High
Voltage", which is the "Opie and Anthony" show. In my opinion, well worth the money.
Plus, XM has all MLB teams, Big Ten Football, and many other extras. I love the
programming.

2) The actual MyFi package itself is wonderful. It comes with 2 holders - one for the
car, one for the home - which you can plug the antenna, power source, and audio connector
into so that all you have to do to switch from car to home is pull the MyFi out of one
holder and drop it into another. Very easy, very smart. Plus, you get 3 different
mounting options for your car, headphones, a personal antenna for when you are using it
like a walkman, RCA cable for connection to a home stereo, tape adapter for the car,
cigarette lighter adapter, home power adapter, and various cases and clips, plus a remote control. I was
honestly amazed at how much comes with this package.

3) Ease of use.

First things first. This is not intended to be a review of the XM service in general. I had that in my truck for a year before getting the Delphi MyFi, so obviously I was pretty gangbusters about the service. But I've now had the MyFi about 3 weeks, including a two-week trip to Atlanta including air travel, hotels and rental cars, so I've gotten some good mileage out of it so far.

Pros:

Battery: This little beauty has about a 5-hour battery life (conservative estimate, as far as I can tell). This means that even for car trips, taking the dog for a walk, and any normal use, it has enough battery life to last. During our long car ride on the trip, I didn't really need to use the car charger, which was one less wire to hook up. I hate having a gadget that needs lots of random junk hanging off, and the battery capacity really cuts down on that.

FM Modulator: This is one of the major plusses to this little unit. Again, like the above, this means that in the car, you don't have a cassette adapter or wired aux jack. It may cut down slightly on sound quality, but it's still higher than standard broadcast FM radio. In addition, this had a special added benefit in the hotel. Usually a hotel has a clock radio, but not much else. The FM transmitter gave me the ability to broadcast to the clock radio, which was the only way to get tunes in the room.

Accessories: If you've bought the SkyFi, which is the unit I have for the truck, it comes with nothing. You need to buy a car adapter kit, then perhaps a home adapter kit, then worry about installation, and when all is said and done, the $100 SkyFi costs closer to $300 or more. This unit comes with *everything*. Car kit, home kit, headphones, belt clip, protective case, it's all there.
