Sirius Satellite Radio unveiled their latest offerings in advanced satellite-based data services for in-vehicle GPS navigation systems.
Currently available for the Alpine SIR-ALP10T SiriusConnect tuner, these new Sirius Data services provide information such as weather, local fuel prices and movie time information direct to your vehicle. The SIRALP10T is compatible with all Alpine satellite-ready headunts, and can interface with the Alpine NVE-N872A navigation system to deliver traffic data for 79 markets nationwide (requires navigation software version NVD-A801 to receive data service features).
MSRP is $299.99 for the SIRALPT10T, and it's available at retail... now.

You can set search parameters to only show gas stations that are within a specific price range as well.
In addition to weather, you can receive local movie information based on your geo-location.
