Enjoy the drive with SiriusXM

With SiriusXM's compact SXV300V1 tuner, you can liven up your daily drive with your favorite satellite radio programming. Small enough to fit neatly behind your car's dash, the SXV300V1 plugs into your SiriusXM-Ready™ car stereo without the need for any additional cables or interfaces. This complete package includes the hideaway satellite radio tuner, plus an installation guide and an exterior antenna that attaches with a powerful magnetic base.

This latest and greatest (so far) SiriusXM tuner gives you all the features you're used to, plus some very cool new ones. With the SXV300V1 and a growing list of new SiriusXM-Ready car stereos, you can create a daily programming package that's uniquely yours.

The SXV300V1 works exclusively with aftermarket in-dash receivers that have a "SiriusXM-Ready" logo — it won't work with factory radios. You'll also need an XM or SiriusXM subscription. Satellite radio service is available only within the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service is available in Alaska.

New features with select car stereos

With select car stereos (see note below), you can access some great new SiriusXM features. Want to take some of the hassle out of your commute? The Traffic & Weather Now feature can access the latest info whenever you want to hear it. If you're a sports fan, SportsFlash™ will notify you when a big play happens during a game involving one of your favorite sports teams. And if you're a music lover, TuneMix™ plays a unique blend of songs chosen from your favorite music channels on the SiriusXM Preset Band. You can even skip songs you don't want to hear.

If you have an older SiriusXM-compatible receiver, you won't get the features above, but you'll still get all the SiriusXM music, entertainment, news, and sports programming you love, plus familiar features like Replay and iTunes® song tagging. With the SXV300V1, you can even set Song/Artist/Game alerts, so you'll always know when your favorite tunes or teams are playing on another channel. And you'll be able to enjoy those new features when you upgrade your receiver. Either way, SiriusXM's vast lineup of music, sports, news, and more will make your daily drive a whole lot more entertaining.

More channels for more choices

Depending on your subscription package, you'll also be able to enjoy SiriusXM's Xtra Channels with the SXV300V1, giving you access to over 20 new music, sports, entertainment, plus SiriusXM Latino, a collection of dedicated Spanish-language channels.

Important Note: Your receiver MUST have the "SiriusXM-Ready" logo — this adapter is not compatible with receivers that have "SAT Radio Ready", "Sirius Ready DC", or "XM Ready" logos. To access Traffic and Weather Now, SportsFlash, and TuneMix, your receiver must be a new model that supports the latest SiriusXM features.

Installation Note: If your car has a FAKRA-style satellite radio antenna connection at the radio location, we offer an adapter that will connect this tuner to your car's factory satellite radio antenna.

Product Highlights:

  • SiriusXM vehicle connection package includes hideaway tuner and magnetic antenna
  • works only with in-dash receivers with the SiriusXM-Ready logo
  • enjoy SiriusXM advanced features like TuneMix and SportsFlash with select new compatible car stereos
  • pause, rewind, and replay up to 60 minutes of live satellite radio broadcasts
  • get game, song, and artist alerts
  • iTunes tagging with iPod connected

Ever get tired of channel surfing the regular old AM and/or FM stations just to find something worth listening to instead of ad after ad? Then SiriusXM is the answer! SiriusXM makes any trip in the car way better than it was before. How did I live before it? was that even living? not compared to the great stations available with Sirius XM!

Pros: Great content ALL the time.

Cons: A small subscription fee.

Am having second thoughts about this. I mostly listen to music and wanted to have the option of commercial free music. I find that the monthly subscription for this facility is high considering when one can get Pandora One and Spotify etc. Through a smart phone or iPad Does not appeal as a viable option anymore.

Pros: Numerous stations

Cons: Not competitive anymore considering the choices available

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this turner along with Kenwood KDC-BT562U deck after my much older Kenwood deck died after 10 years. Works well and was simple to install in my 2001 GMC Sierra truck.

Pros: Works and is simple to install. Like how the Sirius turner is small so it was easy to hide behind my deck when installing.

Cons: Was on the phone with Sirius support longer that I liked trying to active the tuner but that was just typical Sirius support.

Wish they had them for factory stereos. Love it!

The Best Thing Ever!

Written By tw5, New Jersey on Sunday, November 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was worried about running the antenna wire so I watched a few videos on YouTube. It turned out to be much easier than I thought. I attached the antenna above the rear hatch and ran the wire under the weather stripping and into the trim over the hatch opening. From there, I ran the wire inside the molding over the windows and down the driver side of the dash. Once there, I made sure that it was secured under the dash and strung it over to behind the radio. The only tool that I used was a plastic pot scraper thingy that I found in the back of a kitchen drawer. It came in handy for tucking the wiring into the various moldings. However, like Sirius says, an old credit card should suffice.

Pros: Great reception and sound. Installing antenna was easier than I thought. It has already survived the car wash using the magnet alone. Tons of content. Easy to subscribe online and three months of free service. Connecting to the Sirius-ready stereo was stone simple.

Cons: It takes a while to tailor your content. I found that the Android app on my tablet made it much easier for me than a channel guide to thoroughly explore the content, and then customize my presets in the vehicle.

Caveat emptor on the deals/discounts

Written By miken, Illinois on Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unit was simple to install and registration process would've been easy if we'd taken all the defaults. Activating the actual subscription the only option available online was their highest priced package. Calling or online chat are required to activate a subscription at a lower price point. Also, be sure to read the fine print of the discount/rebate - it requires a subscription at their highest price point.

Pros: Simple install.

Cons: None for the unit itself but caveat emptor on any rebates.

Rebate is misleading

Written By Jason123, York, pa on Sunday, October 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gave it a 3 for the price. There is no rebate. If you are a new customer, you get three months free. That is it. If you are already a customer, it will cost you more to swap devices. These are half the price elsewhere.

Pros: Works well. Comes with everything it needs.

Cons: Almost twice the price of other sellers.

SiriusXM SXV300V1

Written By SC, California on Sunday, October 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Install was easy. I like the antenna cable is super thin; unlike the antenna cable for my 7100NEX it's thicker so not as easy to tuck under weather stripping. Stations come in clearly 90% of time but still getting used the extra features and how to fully take advantage of downloading episodes etc. I was hoping with their highest service plan you get weather app info but I think this is an add-on.

Pros: Reliable Clear audio

Cons: Of course still need line of sight even when mounted on roof there will be audio cut out during some gas station stops, car washes etc.

Open box

Cons: Activation process to get rebate is VERY cumbersome.

I Love SiriusXM!

Written By Vincent D, Maryland on Sunday, October 04, 2015

What can I say? SiriusXM is great! This installed easily on my Kenwood KDC-BT758HD, and I love it! The only con I have is that it takes a bit of time to figure out where you're going to route the antenna cable to get it through the dash and into the back of your head unit. Also, even when mounted on the front of the roof of your vehicle where the manual recommends, you still can't get a signal on cloudy or overcast days. But once installed, it's great!

Pros: What can I say it's great

Cons: Can't get signal on cloudy or overcast days

Written By Joe M, Alabama on Wednesday, September 09, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this unit in a 2001 Winnebago motorhome. The unit works very well with the receiver that I also bought from Crutchfield. However, there is a known defect with the antenna connection on this receiver that may cause an intermittent loss of XM signal, especially if the vehicle experiences vibration. (And, wow, did we ever have some vibration on the roads in the northeast). Crutchfield had already alerted me to this fact before I bought the receiver, and had sent me the fix- which is to secure the antenna connector at a slight angle by using wire ties, just in case. I needed the fix while traveling, but also had to un-mount the unit and hang it in an odd way for the antenna connector to work consistently well. If there is a newer XM receiver design, I would suggest getting that one instead. Otherwise, mount this one with the antenna connector angled as suggested by Crutchfield.

Pros: Works well with the stereo receiver.

Cons: Antenna connector may experience intermittent connection, especially on rough roads.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy install--connected to my Pioneer receiver (also bought from Crutchfield a while back) in my 2001 Pathfinder. The magnetic antenna mount is very powerful, shouldn't ever fall off. Reception is excellent--I get no fading or loss even when under freeway overpasses. The installation instructions are simple to follow, too. I had a problem trying to add this receiver to my Sirius account online, so I called and spoke to a rep. who gave me the number for the activation group. I'm glad it worked out that way because it turns out it is $5.00/mo. less and I get all the channels--I was only going to get "mostly music" initially. The activation rep. was excellent--walked me through the whole process. It took a little longer to download all the channels and complete than I though it would and on my radio, at least, it didn't give me much indication as to progress--I thought the process had stalled. However, after a while a message came up that it was done and I had all my channels. A plus, of course is that the receiver is free after rebate. Very happy overall.

Pros: Easy install, great reception

Cons: Had to call to activate--had trouble trying to activate via website.

Not sure yet...

I had this installed with a sony MEXN5100BT, and it didn't work. Called Sirius, and they suggested that the install wasn't done right. Took it back to the installer, and he told me that the antenna connector is damaged, but that he used zip ties and tape to hold it in place. Now I have to get a new one...

Pros: Probably good, if not damaged

Cons: Damaged

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Hooked it up and it works great! Enough antenna wire to go the length of my SUV, but installed antenna up front. Rebate basically made this receiver free.

CONS: (I give this five stars, but here are a few design ideas I would like) Put everything together and checked operation, worked good. Put trim back and got check antenna connection. Removed trim, antenna connected but connection a little temperamental. Used wire ties to keep a firm connection, works fine. I would have like the option to run the lead through the roof (drill hole and seal). This could be done if the antenna wire came out of the bottom of the antenna and there was a recess slot to run it to the back. Unfortunately, the antenna wire exits the back of the antenna which hinders a roof punch through. I ran the wire under the windshield trim and through a door feed through. Much rather would have run inside, down pillar. Simple design change would facilitate.

Pros: Basically Free Like feature to wire tie receiver to wire bundle. Good idea.

Cons: Antenna connect a little touchy.

Sirius XM for Marine Stereo

Written By MitchN, Minnesota on Thursday, July 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So far this tuner has been awesome. Install very easy onto my Kenwood marine stereo. Simple plug and play. In regards to reception, I got very good reception 99% of the time. I say 99% because every once in while the station would cut out. I determined that it was most likely due to the skies being heavily overcast which caused me to lose signal momentarily. The station would only cut out for half a second and would then come back on immediately. I did lose signal right away when I parked my boat back in my garage. Was to be expected but was somewhat disappointed. Had hoped that I would have received signal but being in a building with several layers of tin for ceiling and roof prevented the signal. Have had experience with regular XM radios and the cutting out momentarily happened as well while I was at my cabin in the mountains and the clouds or storms would roll through and block out the satellite signal. Overall, very satisfied.

Cons: N/A

Great tuner- SiriusXM customer service is awful!

Written By Twistwrench, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A very easy plug-in unit. Fit perfectly with my new receiver (as it should). Subscribing was a nightmare. The first rep I spoke with seriously had no grasp of communication skills. All said and done, once I subscribed, I checked my channels and did not receive all of them. A second call connected me with a rep who informed me this unit was XM-based and therefore I needed to buy another radio to add onto to this one to get all of the channels I wanted. After a few frustrating minutes I finally asked if I could simply upgrade my subscription? "Oh yes, we can do that too" was his response. Good grief SiriusXM! Crutchfield rules, by the way!

Finally got Satellite Radio! Can't believe I've waited this long. The SiriusXM SXV300V1 Tuner was a breeze to install on my Kenwood KDC-X998 - just a couple of plugs in the back and ran the antenna wires out behind the dash and up through the door weather sealing and mounted the magnetic antenna on the roof above the passenger windshield on my 4Runner. Reception is great and so nice to have when traveling in the remote back country. Only reception issues were when we were under a dense set of trees or in a tunnel. Nice to have my music doing offroad trails. I've washed the truck several times and the magnetic antenna hasn't moved. Recommend this unit!

Antenna was defective

Written By jayc, Baltimore Maryland on Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Unfortunately for me, after paying to have a new head unit, steering wheel control interface and the XM Radio adaptor, I found that the radio was not receiving a satellite signal. Troubleshooting the components I narrowed it down to the antenna. I substituted an old antenna that I had, and then everything worked fine. Now I have to pay $85 to get the defective antenna pulled out and replaced with my old one. I am NOT happy with the experience.

Pros: It worked fine after replacing the antenna. I've been an XM Radio customer since the beginning and I love the service.

Cons: I am stuck with a bad antenna, wasted time to have it reinstalled, and I am out $85.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Totally works. Easy to install. More for auto than boat because of the magnetic attachment system

Pros: Cinch to connect.

Cons: Will not work with older (5 yr) Clarion CMD8 because connector has changed. Had to buy new CMD8. The antenna itself has a magnet to attach it. This is not a good solution for fiberglass boats. Also the magnet will rust in the marine environment. I mounted mine inside a deck hatch.
