Satellite radio company XM Canada has unveiled two new devices, the XpressR and XpressEZ, both made by Audiovox, useable in both home and vehicle. They’ll drag in a wide range of programming on more than 120 channels.

The XpressR is said to be the industry’s first satellite radio with split-screen display and advanced features like
a 30-minute pause/replay. The split screen allows listeners the ability to view six different XM channels simultaneously. It shows the current channel on the left side and five additional channels on the right. All six can be viewed by channel name, artist or song title. It automatically adjusts the level of brightness from day to night.

The 30-minute buffer continuously and automatically saves the last 30 minutes of programming for users to replay even after they change the channel. XpressR users can also pause their active XM channel with the option to play back the program within 30 minutes.

The new XpressEZ is an entry-level radio that includes a large and bright three-line display for viewing channel,
artist and song title; the ability to program ten favorite channels; and a convenient tuner dial for simple and quick
