Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Simple to set up, the indoor/outdoor antenna pulls great signal sitting just inside the window. The only thing it could come with is a better RCA to Headphone jack cord

Pros: Easy to setup, Good Antenna Signal

Cons: None yet found

XM home docking station

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very simple to use. It is important to follow the guidelines for compatability. Someone at a different store tried to sell me a station for a Sirius radio, it wasn't compatable.

Pros: Low profile does not take up a lot of space in my setup.

Cons: Does not let the FM transmitter send a signal to my receiver. Must use the audio cable to connect.

Great Reception

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The new antenna included in this kit gives excellent reception. I replaced an older molel
and the reception with the old antenna was always very spotty at best. I would
recommend this to anyone who wants the XM radio.
