Post Alpine KCA-SC100

Does anybody have any information on this? On Alpine's website, there isn't allot about in other than it sound like some sort of interface between a PnP receiver and the head unit. I wonder if it will show all the letters broadcasted along with signal strength.

From Alpine's website:

Sirius Satellite Radio Plug and Play Interface

Home > Products > Accessories > KCA-SC100

Sirius Satellite Radio Plug and Play Interface

U.S. $80.00
CDN. $109.00

Release Date: Available in March

Plug and play in your car! If you haven’t heard yet, satellite radio is the new way to listen to your favorite music, sports, news, talk – commercial free, clear-digital quality, and wide range of programming. With your SIRIUS plug and play device, you can get access to all this and more on the road. Hook up your SIRIUS plug and play device to your Alpine system with the KCA-SC100.

SIRIUS stuff
Control your SIRIUS plug and play from your 2007 Ai-NET head unit. (CDA-9883, CDA-9885, CDA-9887, iDA-X001, IVA-D105, IVA-W205). All you need is your SIRIUS plug and play device, subscription to SIRIUS radio service, the SIRIUS portable dock, Alpine head unit, and KCA-SC100, for some SIRIUS entertainment. Visit SIRIUS Satellite Radio for more on SIRIUS products and subscription service information.

Control within Reach
Control your SIRIUS plug and play device right from your head unit. Use Quick Search to browse all artists and songs currently playing on all channels.
It’s Game Time
Want to know if your favorite team’s playing? Your head unit will display a text message if your favorite teams’ games are being broadcast. Jump to that broadcast with the push of a button so you can listen to your game play by play. You can also get the latest score updates while you listen to other broadcasts.

They’re Playing Our Song
Want to make sure you hear your favorite music? Like your plug and play SIRIUS device, you can get alerted when your favorite songs or artists are being broadcast. With the push of a button, you can jump right to that broadcast and catch the songs you want to listen to.

Instant Replay
This solution supports the SIRIUS Replay function, so you can pause, rewind, and replay live broadcasts – up to 44 minutes. Listen to your favorite programming again at your convenience.


Maybe Alpine is tired of Directed Electronics... ???

The KCA-SC100 is a new translator that Alpine created to connect to either the new SC-C1 tuner, or the SC-VDOC1 and a compatible Plug & Play.

It is backwards compatible with all SAT ready Alpine headunits, but when connected to the new 2007 models it will give the user the following features:
*GameAlert (game start o updated scoring)
*Song and Artist Search (alone with channel and Category)
*Song/Artist Alert
*Replay (when connected to the SC-VDOC1 + Sportster 4 and Starmate 4)

SC-C1 Tuner = $49.99 (available February)
SC-VDOC1 = $49.99 (available March/April)

KCA-SC100 = $59.99 (Available February/March)
