XM Satellite Radio, with more than 6.5 million subscribers announced on April 13th that XM NavTraffic - the first nationwide satellite traffic information service for GPS navigation systems - will be available in the Acura RDX beginning with the 2007 model year vehicles, which were on display at the 2006 New York International Automobile Show.

The Acura RL and many Cadillac models are already equipped with on-board XM NavTraffic.

XM Nav Traffic service began with 20 markets, increased to 22 in June 2005, and yet again increased by an additional 9 new markets to cover 31 major metropolitan markets. All markets in the XM NavTraffic service are supported 24/7 for round the clock information - the only satellite delivered traffic data service that can make that claim. The XM NavTraffic service will continue to expand in the future through joint development with our data partner, NAVTEQ Traffic, as new markets are launched and new technology enables enhanced data collection capability.

Other vehicles that debuted at the New York Auto Show that will also feature XM Nav Traffic are the Infiniti G35 sedan, and the Lexus LS sedans beginning with the 2007 model year vehicles.

Using XM's coast-to-coast satellite signal, the XM NavTraffic service continuously delivers traffic data directly to GPS navigation systems. XM NavTraffic data enables an overlay of color-coded traffic flow information on the navigation map, indicating how fast the traffic is currently moving on the driver's personal route. Accidents and road construction are identified on the map by icons.

XM NavTraffic can show at-a-glance traffic conditions between driver and destination, allowing the driver to avoid a jam before getting caught in traffic. The traffic data is aggregated for XM by NAVTEQ Traffic from multiple data sources, including police and emergency services, commercial traffic data providers, road sensors, traffic cameras, eyewitness reports, and real-time aircraft surveillance reports.

"XM's strategic automotive partners are rapidly embracing XM NavTraffic," said Roderick MacKenzie, XM's vice president of advanced applications and services. "XM expects to expand the availability of XM NavTraffic in more new vehicles in the months ahead."
