Delphi Introduces New Radio That Achieves Highest Functionality in a Small Package


January 3, 2006, LAS VEGAS -- Packing plenty of capability into a small package, Delphi Corp. introduced its new multimedia radio receiver here today at the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show.

“We are continuing to set the standards in integrating the features and functionality from consumer market products into vehicle radios,” said Ken Erickson, Delphi Electronics & Safety business line executive for , Integrated Media Systems. “Our extensive history of producing mobile electronics allows us to integrate these functions while maintaining the tremendous quality and reliability standards that are demanded by car buyers.”

The new Delphi radio head unit includes a host of new technologies, including MP3 playback with personalized settings using a secure digital card. The radio also features Bluetooth hands-free cellular telephone operation, streaming audio both in and out of the receiver and PDA connectivity.

By using next- generation hardware, Delphi is able to provide advantages for OEMs and consumers in reliability, mass, energy consumption, durability and the elimination of music playback skipping. The integrated Bluetooth, microphone and signal processor in the single DIN head unit allows easy standard installation in the instrument panel without additional cables, external boxes or reworking the wiring harness.

As the most experienced provider of mobile entertainment in the industry, Delphi has produced more than 270 million audio systems since being first to put an in-dash receiver in an instrument panel in 1936. In addition, the company has produced a long number of firsts in audio and pioneered many other electronic innovations.
