Washington D.C., November 01, 2005/xmradio.com/ -- XM Satellite Radio (NASDAQ: XMSR) today announced that, based on the latest satellite radio industry subscriber results, XM increased its retail market leadership with a 59 percent market share in the 3rd quarter compared to 56 percent in the 2nd quarter.

"XM subscribers represent two out of every three satellite radio customers. Satellite radio is one of the fastest-growing entertainment services ever and is expected to exceed more than nine million total subscribers by the end of this year," said Hugh Panero, XM's President and CEO. "XM continues to expand its leadership position while adding subscribers at about one-third the cost of our competitor."

NISSAN NORTH AMERICA SELECTS XM SATELLITE RADIO AS ITS FACTORY-INSTALLED SATELLITE RADIO PROVIDER FOR INFINITI AND NISSAN VEHICLES BEGINNING WITH 2008

Washington D.C., November 02, 2005/xmradio.com/ -- Nissan North America, Inc. and XM Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: XMSR) today announced that Nissan North America has selected XM Satellite Radio as its factory-installed satellite radio solution for Infiniti and Nissan vehicles beginning with the 2008 model year.

More than five hundred thousand Nissan and Infiniti vehicles with factory-installed XM Satellite Radio are projected to be produced for the 2008 model year with more than one million projected annually by the 2010 model year.

In January 2005, Nissan chose XM to be its supplier of satellite-delivered data and telematics services, such as in-vehicle messaging and XM NavTraffic, which delivers current traffic information to vehicle navigation systems. Nissan and XM are now expanding that relationship.

Nissan currently offers XM Satellite Radio as a feature on a variety of Nissan models including the Nissan Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Quest, 350Z Coupe, Murano, Armada, Pathfinder, Frontier, Xterra, and Titan, as well as the Infiniti FX45, G35, M45, Q45, and QX56.

"XM Satellite Radio delivers the entertainment and information content that our customers want," said Jack Collins, Vice President of Product Planning at Nissan North America. "We look forward to expanding our relationship with XM as a means to make our products more attractive to our customers."

"Nissan North America's selection of XM Satellite Radio as its satellite radio provider underscores the commitment of Nissan and XM to provide consumers with the best possible driving experience," said Hugh Panero, President and CEO of XM Satellite Radio.

Audiovox's Terk Smart Digital Adaptor makes it Possible for Every Car Radio

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Audiovox Corporation
(Nasdaq: VOXX) and XM Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: XMSR), announced a new smart
digital adaptor that delivers XM to any new or used vehicle having a stereo
system equipped with Radio Data Service (RDS). The announcement was made by
Tom Malone, Senior VP, Sales, Audiovox Electronics Corporation.

RDS is available in a variety of vehicle models offered by leading
automakers, including Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar,
Jeep, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln-Mercury, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan,
Porsche, Range Rover, Scion, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo. The RDS system was
introduced in the U.S. in 1998, and is designed to send digital display
information to FM radios.

Audiovox's Smart Digital Adaptor, marketed under its Terk brand, connects
the in-dash radio to a hideaway XM Direct tuner box. The driver can access all
XM functions using a full-feature remote control. The Adaptor offers consumers
a universal solution for new and used vehicles that do not have
factory-installed XM radios. The patent-pending technology provides a
"factory-like" XM installation, leaving the dash and existing car stereo head
unit intact.

"With the introduction of this new RDS product, Audiovox covers another
segment of the satellite radio market. Consumers who want satellite radio, but
who don't want the extra hardware on their dashboards that a plug-and-play
solution requires, will now be able to purchase this new car stereo solution
starting November," said Malone.

Consumers can simply use the Terk Smart Digital Adapter (MSRP $69.99) to
connect the RDS radio to an XM Direct tuner (MSRP $49.99). The XM Direct tuner
is placed behind the dash for a clean, seamless installation. The tuner is
available at retailers nationwide.

RDS-capable car stereos connected to the XM Direct tuner will display the
XM channel names, artist's name, song title, channel number, and music genre
on the existing car stereo's display, similar to factory-installed satellite
radio receivers. The user will be able to continue to listen to AM and FM
radio stations on the in-dash radio.

Garmin(R) StreetPilot(R) Series Gets an XM Upgrade

OLATHE, Kan., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Garmin International Inc.,
a unit of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN), today announced the StreetPilot 2730, a
feature-packed GPS automotive navigator that is the first to offer real-time
XM NavTraffic, XM Weather, and XM Radio capabilities in a portable product.

"XM gives our customers even more reason to love the new StreetPilot
2730," said Gary Kelley, Garmin's vice president of marketing. "With its
integrated traffic, weather, and audio capabilities, drivers can make even
smarter navigational decisions -- and enjoy their time on the road more."

"Garmin is the leader in portable navigation and XM is the leader in
satellite-delivered entertainment and data services," said Roderick MacKenzie,
XM's vice president of Advanced Applications and Services. "The unmatched
partnership between Garmin and XM has made the newest StreetPilot models the
most advanced portable navigation products ever."

The XM Traffic, Weather and Audio capabilities give the StreetPilot 2730
great utility, even when drivers know exactly where they are. XM NavTraffic
is the first nationwide satellite-based data traffic information service that
enables an overlay of current traffic conditions. Aggregated by NAVTEQ
Traffic from multiple sources, the StreetPilot 2730 uses this data to
automatically calculate and suggest faster alternative routes -- long before
traffic starts backing up.

Accidents, road construction or other incidents affecting traffic are
graphically represented as icons on the navigation map. Information relating
to a traffic incident is also available including the precise location, lanes
affected, and the predicted duration. Roadways are color-coded to indicate
directional traffic flow speed.

Additionally, the StreetPilot 2730 can also receive XM Weather data.
Current weather conditions for over 2000 locations and weather forecasts for
162 cities are easily displayed for locations throughout the continental U.S.
County storm and flood warnings are also highlighted, so motorists can make
prudent driving decisions.

The StreetPilot 2730 also offers more than 150 channels of XM Satellite
Radio, featuring 100% commercial-free music as well as more than 30 channels
of news, sports, talk and entertainment. Users can send XM and navigation
audio to their car stereo through the StreetPilot's integrated FM wireless
transmitter or 3.5mm stereo output jack.

The StreetPilot 2730 also comes equipped with an MP3 player that lets
users take their personal music collection on the road and browse music by
artist, album, song, or genre. Loading music is "drag-and-drop" easy -- no
special software is required. The StreetPilot 2730 also works as an audio
book player, with content available for purchase from Audible.com -- featuring
more than 70,000 hours of audio programs from more than 200 content partners.

In addition to the turn-by-turn voice prompted navigation available in
earlier StreetPilot models, the 2730 actually announces the name of upcoming
streets and points of interest -- letting drivers keep their eyes on the road
while navigating through busy traffic and convoluted roadways. Highly-
detailed maps featuring nearly six million points of interest (POIs)
throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico (destinations like
hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and attractions) come pre-loaded on the
unit's solid-state memory. If a driver strays off-course, the StreetPilot
2730 automatically recalculates a new route.

Users can also augment the pre-loaded maps with Custom POIs from industry
standard CSV files, such as school zones and safety cameras. In addition, a
proximity alert option can warn the driver of upcoming Custom POIs. This
safety feature is designed to help reinforce the importance of traveling at
appropriate and legal speeds.

In addition to point-to-point navigation, the StreetPilot 2730 can
calculate the most efficient route between multiple destinations -- a real
timesaver for realtors, sales forces, and errand-runners. Drivers can also
tell the unit to avoid specific areas or road segments when calculating a
route.

Garmin's GXM 30(TM) antenna, which is included with the StreetPilot 2730,
receives and processes all XM Traffic, Weather and Audio data. For maximum
portability, the magnetic, waterproof, puck-sized GXM 30 can be placed on the
dashboard or the roof of the vehicle.

The StreetPilot 2730 boasts a 3.8-inch (diagonal) WQVGA automotive-grade
color TFT display with touchscreen that automatically adjusts the unit's
backlight for optimum viewability in any amount of light. Drivers can view
the map in either a three-dimensional perspective or a top-down track-up or
north-up view.

With expected availability in the fourth quarter of 2005, the expected
retail price of the StreetPilot 2730 is $1199.00. The unit ships standard
with the GXM 30 antenna, integrated FM wireless transmitter, City
Navigator(TM) North America NT maps pre-loaded, a 12-volt power cable with
external speaker, alphanumeric remote control, PC/USB interface cable, AC
power adapter, beanbag mount, dash mount, owner's manual and quick reference
setup guide.

Garmin Taps XM NavTraffic Powered by NAVTEQ Traffic for Real-Time Data

CHICAGO, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NAVTEQ (NYSE: NVT), a leading
global provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation and location-based
solutions, and Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd.
(Nasdaq: GRMN), today announced the StreetPilot 7200, StreetPilot 7500 and
Streetpilot 2730, will offer XM NavTraffic powered by NAVTEQ Traffic(TM), the
first satellite-based data traffic information service that enables an overlay
of current traffic conditions.

The latest StreetPilot automotive GPS navigation devices offer optional
traffic management systems that make driving with GPS essential, even if the
driver is familiar with the route. The unit notifies the driver of accidents,
road construction, and weather-related traffic delays before they are
encountered, and then offers an alternative route to avoid the traffic or road
hazard.

The StreetPilot 2730, 7200, and 7500 graphically represent accidents, road
construction or other incidents affecting traffic as icons on the navigation
map. Information relating to a traffic incident is also available including
the precise location, lanes affected, and the predicted duration. Roadways
are color-coded to indicate directional traffic flow speed.

NAVTEQ Traffic combines data from multiple sources, including the leading
commercial traffic data providers, government departments of transportation,
police and emergency services, road sensors, cameras and airborne reports.
NAVTEQ Traffic data includes planned incidents (such as construction),
unplanned incidents (such as accidents and disabled vehicles) and flow (speed
and movement of traffic). Once received, traffic data is linked to the map
for wireless delivery to the navigation system via XM NavTraffic.

NAVTEQ Traffic is currently available in 22 markets including: Atlanta,
Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles,
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Orlando,
Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco/Oakland, San Diego, San Jose,
Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and Washington D.C.

All three StreetPilot models offer turn-by-turn voice prompted navigation
and announce the name of upcoming streets and points of interest -- letting
drivers keep their eyes on the road while navigating to addresses or nearly
six million points of interest throughout North America. Motorists can also
receive XM Weather data (information like current conditions, forecasts, and
storm warnings) as well as over 150 channels of XM Satellite Radio. The
StreetPilot 2730 features a 3.8" diagonal display, while the StreetPilot 7200
and 7500 feature seven-inch displays.

The StreetPilot 7200 will have an estimated retail price of $1499; the
StreetPilot 7500 will have an estimated retail price of $1800; the StreetPilot
2370 is expected to retail for $1199.00. All units are expected to be
available in the fourth quarter of 2005.
