XM made several product announcements this week.

The navigation display for the 2009 Hyundai Sonata will have a color touch-screen, thus improving the XM listening experience, according to the satcaster.

Hyundai autos equipped with XM come with a three-month subscription.

Using the display, users can scan through XM’s channels. With updated graphics, users can glance at the XM channel name, song title, artist name and category to select music, sports, talk, news, comedy or traffic and weather.

XM has been standard on Sonata models since 2007, however this is the first time a navigation system has been incorporated into the Sonata.

The car was unveiled this week at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show.
