XM Onyx EZ with car kit

The XM Onyx EZ has an easy-to-read blue display

Take SiriusXM on the road

XM's Onyx EZ Dock & Play satellite radio gives you everything SiriusXM has to offer in a compact, portable package that's ready for the road. The package includes a car kit with everything you need to enjoy SiriusXM in your vehicle.

The Onyx EZ features an easy-to-read blue display that lets you view artist name, song or program title, and channel information all at the same time. You can store up to 10 favorite channels for one-touch access. Plus, the handy One-Touch Jump™ button lets you switch back to the last channel you were listening to, or check out traffic and weather.

A complete kit for your car

For best performance, use the Aux In cable that's included with the Onyx EZ kit. If your car's radio doesn't have an aux input, you can also use the included SiriusXM PowerConnect™ system to deliver clear sound through your vehicle's FM radio. You'll also get the other accessories you'll need for installation in your car — a car cradle and antenna, plus dash and vent mounts. If you have an older car, the Onyx will also work with a cassette adapter (sold separately).

Note: A subscription is required and sold separately by SiriusXM. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories.

Product Highlights:

  • Dock & Play XM satellite radio
  • blue display shows artist, song or program, and channel information
  • 10 channel presets
  • PowerConnect system includes auxiliary output cable and power adapter/FM transmitter
  • includes car accessories: docking station and roof-mount antenna

Written By Joe A., New York on Monday, July 06, 2015

There is a defect that causes signal loss from the antenna giving you a broken or missing antenna error message. Also the reception is terrible. Don't wast your time with this garbage!

Pros: None

Cons: Defective item with bad reception

product looks appealing. have not yet installed but looks sturdy and fuctional.

Pros: convienient

great value

Written By savedbyrasm, Augusta maine on Friday, November 21, 2014

Got this radio to try out XM services. Service rep at Sirius suggested this radio for what I wanted, NHL games and Howard Stern. With the All Access plan, I get nearly every channel Sirius offers. It's a light weight radio and doesn't take up a lot of room. Installation is fairly easy and quick.

Pros: Small and light weight. Can be mounted virtually anywhere. Easy navigation of stations. Colors can be changed or dimmed for comfortable driving. Red works great for night time.

Cons: The adhesive that comes with this didn't work for me, and the stand made it top heavy and kept falling off my dash. I ended up not using the stand and buying plastic velcro strip to mount directly to the dash and radio. Much sturdier.

Written By Adam B, Baltimore, MD on Monday, October 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the Onyx EZ to replace a Roady II originally purchased in 2005 - it was easy to install in a 2006 Toyota Sienna, works extremely well through FM modulation and the black color matches the existing radio - for less than $100 I was able to quickly replace the old Roady which had developed problems (after 9 years of constant use - no complaints about that) - the "jump" button is great as it allows you to go right to traffic and weather for your city and then jump back to the station you were listening to - overall this is a great addition for a relatively low price.

After a full month of attempting to get this radio to play through my existing FM car radio, I give up,

Pros: Nicely packaged and designed, in appearance that is.

Cons: Can't get it to work. Pre-set buttons are rather small.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy installation, ample antenna wire length and works great! Nice unit and it arrived quickly!

Pros: Good display, easy to understand and operate.

Cons: Had to tape down antenna wire across roof as there was no place to tuck it in. Small presets are difficult to see but are a minor drawback considering unit size and overall features.

Not what I expected, I needed to do more research so my mistake

Pros: Nice radio, way more channels than you could ever need

Cons: Not as simple to install as stated. Go with in dash unit. Monthly fees have added taxes and some so called music fee. Will go back to iPod which has its issues but still FREE to download and listen.

Written By Anonymous, Grants Pass, Oregon on Saturday, March 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

New to satellite radio, so I can not compare to other units. However, this unit is easy to use and set up. Antenna placement is everything. I did expect more in terms of reception, but I have come to learn that SW Oregon trees and topography are not satellite friendly!

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Could be more functional with aftermarket head units

XM Onyx EZ

Written By CarleK, Beloit, KS on Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have had this unit for about a week and have had no problems with it. I have an older car with no Ipod input and the cassette player will not work with these units. This unit has an FM transmitter which allows the signal to come through the radio on FM 97.3. The only problem I have had with the radio is dealing with the radio provider.

Pros: Small and works with my existing radio.

Cons: Dealing with Sirius getting everything set up for the radio. I did not read the fine print on the rebate and lost out on the cash.

XM Onyx install

Written By Chris, Perrysburg, OH on Monday, January 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy install. I wanted to attach to vents on dash, but difficult to establish stability. I change out cars every other year and do not want to affix to dash. When installing on vent unit shakes and antenna wire loosens enough at times to lose signal. I have had radio 2 weeks, happy when not having to push antenna wire into unit.

Pros: E-Z install and works

Cons: Need to put screw in connections to limit loosening. Great Idea there.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ok, i was skeptical when this arrived. Could something so small and easy to set up actually work? Right out of the box i was convinced that the sticky pad attachment was going to be a problem. It wasnt, I stuck it on the dash below the factory radio and its held on like a champ. The setup was super easy, the reception is great, and ive yet to find a single thing about this thats a problem. Its a good unit, buy it and find out. My next purchase is going to be the home docking reciever for this!

Pros: Small but still finger friendly. Good display. Mounting options galore. Sounds very good!

Cons: None yet

Written By Karate Doc, Santa Barbara, CA on Friday, November 22, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Onyx EZ is a great radio. It is slim, sturdy, and easy to use. Installation in the home and car is very easy, if esthetics is not desired (unless you can hide the wires better than me). The sound is clear and I've had no problems with the antenna reception. I have been an XM subscriber for over 10 years. This unit is basic and solid.....no frills.

Pros: Solid unit. Works well.

Cons: The remote lags a little bit, even when placed right up to the unit. I had this problem with previous remotes for XM units. The auto docking station requires you to plug into your 6V cigarette lighter---not very esthetic. I had it professionally installed and they were able to tie into the car's 6V circuit and hide the wire.
