CNET likens Livio Radio’s new Internet Radio Kit to a poor man’s replacement for Sirius XM. The Livio Kit is due in July for $99.99. Once it pairs with your cellphone and you buy a $5 app, you get a nice user interface to handle 45,000 Internet Radio stations streamed to your car’s sound system. A key feature is preset buttons for favorite stations.
The Livio Kit sits on a stalk that plugs into the car’s cigarette lighter. There’s USB port for phone charging and a mic for hands free calling. When a call comes in, you press a button on the Kit to take the call. It was first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
The Kit works with iPhone and Android phones.
