SiriusXM radio fills truck with music, news, sports

Updated Apr 7, 2019

You can listen to the radio with just a dial, a couple of knobs to change the channel and volume and a speaker to hear the music, talk or game.

But, why get along with that when you can have more. So much more.

That means you hear all of your favorite talk show, all of Howard Stern or the complete game without fear of it fading out as you drive.

Getting that abundance of programming is easy with the SiriusXM Onyx Plus radio.

Mounted on your truck’s dash (or taken into your home when you’re not driving), the Onyx Plus, which has a full-color display, delivers the full spectrum of SiriusXM’s programming. And, much more.

The Onyx Plus gives you the luxury or tailoring your listening to your specific tastes, no matter how diverse. You can create your own music channel by blending several favorite channels with TuneMix.

Another feature of the Onyx Plus is TuneStart. If you happen to come into the middle of your favorite song, click TuneStart and you hear that special bit of music from the beginning.

The Onyx Plus also lets you pause, rewind, and replay on your favorite channels for up to 30 minutes. Try doing that with the push buttons on your truck’s radio.

It also delivers game and score alerts and a sports news ticker for the hardcore fan.

Over-the-road drivers need to have important information as they drive. The Onyx Plus delivers local traffic and weather for your current location with one touch.

You can also store up to 20 of your favorite channels and then access them with one touch.

At just 4.5 inches wide and 2.4 inches deep, the SiriusXM Onyx Plus is a lot of listening in a modest package.

Available at travel centers and online. The SiriusXM Onyx Plus and other items are featured in the current issue of the Trucker Gear Guide.
