Portable XM receiver and MP3 player

 

Reviewers say the Pioneer Inno2BK is the best portable player yet for XM. Its integrated antenna makes it truly portable, letting you listen to live XM satellite radio through headphones while you're outdoors. Reviewers point out the good sound quality...

Excellent Satellite Radio

 

I have owed XM radio's since the inception. This has been by far the best one yet. With the option to use as portable to car to home makes the possibilities endless. The good far out weighs the bad.

This is a quality XM radio with the added bonus for MP3. Really nice to be able to record and listen to xm music anywhere. Nice color screen easy to use interface. Can fit about 200 xm songs when I use 512mb for xm and the other for mp3. Napster...

when searching through line-up, cant just record a song mid way. Must be listening to the station from the beginning. would be nice to have expandable memory slot. Gets reception outside if open area, the headphones with antenna is recommended if used...

Pioneer GEXINNO2BK Portable XM Satellite Radio with MP3

 

Like I said before it's great for road trips. I just want someone to develop the first portable satellite radio with about 80GB that I can load with MY OWN music.

Worth having when your on long road trips or when you get tired of listening to the same cd's or radio stations. There's a great selection of music,sports,and news to choose from.

There are more cons then pros for starters. I got mine when they were $400. It has 1GB of space for your personal music but your can only get about 40 songs on it. The space is mainly for saving songs/radio shows off of the satellite radio but you have...

Pioneer inno

 

very nice, i got it back when it was expensive. you can get access to sports via the xm radio or a sports ticker, as well as stocks, traffic in some cities and weather as well.

this thing is amazing, its an portable XM radio and an mp3 player with a push of a button. you can search and record for entire songs right off the xm radio. unlike the ipod, the thing is made of some metal so its durable. comes with the home...

when you run it for awhile, the metal disipates the heat and gets warm. the mp3 player cannot hold as many mp3s as the ipod, but can hold more songs. songs off XM cannot be played on PC i guess because of copyrights. and you need to pay 80$ for the...

Inno2 - Worth the cash? Is it Really Portable or Good For Sports?

 

So I was up in Colorado Snowboarding when I saw someone using an Inno2. I asked about it and thought wow.. I could have techno, trance, rap, pop all while snowboarding. I had an ipod at the time, and still do, but figured maybe the Inno2 was the way to...

Color Screen, Recording Option, Portable Function, Channel Genre Highlighting

Just okay

 

The earbuds sounds are mediocre; reception with the car kit is laced with static.

Easy to tune to XM stations ; portable ; comfortable clip-on-belt attachment

Signal quality highly variable in car (With car kit) or bus (no extra aerial) ; no signal in steel buildings ; included earbuds fall out ; included earbuds sound quality not very good

I Love It !!!!!

 

I got this to wear at work.

The Inno has great storage capacity and is easy to use. You can record XM programming and listen to it whenever you want.

As yet I haven't found any

Very Functional and Useful XM Portable Unit!

 

Overall, I was quite pleased by my choice of upgrading ot a high quality XM unit for my XM Subscription.

Portable, good reception, light and durable

Cost, setup complicated (car kit ugly to look at!)

Record from the dock, car window, or even record and/or listen from the window seat in a jet! Be sure to check for new software updates... I got mine on the XM website. Used daily for 2+ years... a rare consumer product that lasts. Only regret is...

Product Specifications

Take a listen to Pioneer's latest innovation, the Pioneer inno. Small in size, big on features, it's the first satellite radio that plays MP3s and WMAs. You heard right; now you can select and record from over 170 crystal-clear channels of live XM radio or play your own MP3/WMA mix. Anytime you want, at home or on the road, hear talk radio, college sports, Major League Baseball, NASCAR and any kind of music you choose. That's unheard of variety and options.
