Sirius XM’s Snap gets FCC approval, but what is it?

screencap 2010-09-09 at 11.12.35 AM

A new device from Sirius XM has just gained approval from the FCC (link).

Based on the report the Sirius XM Snap, Model:XSN1, is a Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service receiver for Sirius XM Radio. The unit is a vehicle accessory with a transmitter operating in the 88-108MHz FM Band. The XM Snap supplies the incoming satellite digital audio signal to the vehicle’s radio via wired connection (Audio cable, FM Direct, or Cassette Adapter) or wireless FM transmission (Power Connect or FEA).

Unfortunately that is really all the information given about the new product, and the only image we have is the one above. Given the name Snap it’s possible this product was created to be paired with another device, perhaps a mobile phone or a new product not released yet?

Sirius XM has requested a 45 day confidentiality period on the user guide, test photos and other information, suggesting it’ll be here in time for the holiday season.

What do you think this new mystery product is? Leave your thoughts below.
