Streaming music in your car is about to get a whole lot smoother with SiriusXM’s new satellite streaming service.

Radio streaming service SiriusXM have announced their new satellite streaming car interface called ‘360L’. The service offers SiriusXM’s 200+ channels as well as an easy way to get recommendations and explore new music so that you don’t have to search through music while you’re driving.

The 360L will provide recommendations on the touch screen based on listening preferences and what you’re listening to at the time, making it simple to change your choice with the tap of a finger. It will even expand further on SiriusXM’s music service with on-demand programming that has never been seen before in the dash.

Executive Vice President of Products, Operations & Connected Vehicle Services at SiriusXM, Jim Cady said: “We think SiriusXM with 360L will revolutionise the way you listen to audio in the car, and we are excited to launch it in the all-new Ram 1500 (SiriusXM partnered with FCA US LLC for 360L’s launch), which once again is a leader in bringing the latest technological advancements to drivers. SiriusXM with 360L comes along at a time when embedded connectivity is enhancing the in-vehicle entertainment experience for more and more drivers and their passengers.

“We are using that connectivity to take a giant step forward with our platform, and SiriusXM with 360L improves both our consumer offering and our ability to understand and serve our subscribers. With a better, more adaptable user interface, it allows easy access to content on demand, more personalised programming and an improved display. It will also enable us to understand user behaviour, and so over time be better at recommendations and discovery across our wide bundle of content.”
