Drivers can also check and manage their SiriusXM subscription right from their myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC or myCadillac mobile app. A three-month subscription to SiriusXM All Access is included for customers who purchase equipped 2020 vehicle models, meaning those customers can enjoy the benefits of SiriusXM in the vehicle, and also listen outside the vehicle on the SiriusXM app. Customers can also download the SiriusXM app through their myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC or myCadillac mobile app.

New SiriusXM Solutions for 2020 Vehicles and New Harley-Davidson Application Re-Released

ENGLEWOOD, CO (11.21.2019) – VAIS Technology has released new satellite radio integrated solutions specifically designed for 2020 vehicle models. This solution allows owners of these 2020 models to add SiriusXM satellite radio to their existing factory stereo, without compromising functionality.

GSR-HM51, Harley Davidson

The new 2020 integration kits provide coverage for 2020 Toyota, Honda, GM, Ford, Hyundai and Kia vehicles. Application guide available on VAIS Technology website. Also, all these models are compatible with the GSR-UV01 (universal unit) which can be flashed using online software. This allows dealers to only stock one unit to do almost all applications.

GSR-UV01, Universal

The re-released Harley Davidson, (GSR-HM51) application now includes a weather-proof enclosure as well as the SXV300 SiriusXM tuner, all in one unit, which now allows multiple source switching between the iPhone and SXM source via the factory radio.

This VAIS solution connects directly to the original factory radio and allows the vehicle owner to listen to satellite radio through the existing factory system. The VAIS integrated solution also allows for full control of satellite radio functions – changing stations, setting presets, steering wheel functions, etc. In the Harley Davidson, all controls are done thru the handlebars and factory buttons.

“Since 2003, VAIS Technology have been developing satellite radio adapters for vehicles that aren’t equipped from the factory with SiriusXM tuners,” Dennis Hopper, Vice President of Sales, says. “While satellite radio is more popular than ever, many new OEM vehicles still don’t come equipped from the factory with satellite tuners. Over the last few years many OEM’s are removing satellite tuners from their base model vehicles. VAIS Tech. develops simple, easy to install integrated solutions that add satellite radio, but preserve factory functions.”
