Why did you decide to put satellite radio in your car?
Sick of traditional radio's lack of variety and over-commercialization.
Why did you choose these products?
Actually, I won the Roady from XM! The Sony radio sounds great and can be mounted at the unique angle of my car's dash.
What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Concealing the antenna wire for a clean look.
What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
Possibly add Terk's XMD1000 and adapter to control XM directly from the Sony radio.
