ryan from Fairfield, OH on 7/24/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not happy at all especially for the money. The vent mount is terrible.. And the stick on mount worked for literally 15 minutes.. I installed this in my work car which is a 2001 BMW 525. The power adapter doesn't fit the factory cigar lighter. Very unhappy with this for the money. Nothing of Crutchfield's doing, all on sirius xm and their garbage product

Pros: Cant find one honestly

Cons: mounts suck. as well as the power cord for a BMW

Easy set up, great unterupted reception

Kristi J. from MIdwest on 6/8/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to set up. Allows great uninterupted reception like some of the ones I used in the past. Buying another today for our pontoon. Like the that the docking station can be attached so the player is stabilized in your vehicle or boat.

Pros: Easy to set up. Great product.

Cons: Need a separate one for each vehicle if attach the docking station to your vehicle.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got of the search and sent section. Works perfect. Only reason I could see for it to be in that section was crushed corner of the box. Will buy again without reservation.

Pros: Works like new

Cons: None

Mobile tunes!

Matthew S from aurora, CO on 1/20/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Comes with multiple mounting options. I'm not sure how I will end up mounting it. For now I will try out multiple ways until I find one I really like. The vent mount is easiest but blocks the vent completely on a 2012 GMC 2500HD. The rest of the install is pretty straight forward.

Pros: Multiple ways to mount it.

Cons: Vent mount will completely block vent.

SiriusXM SXDV3 Car Kit

MaineFrank from Maine on 7/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For years, my wife had SiriusXM in her car and it was perfect for long trips. When we moved to Maine, we found it to be the answer to Maine's somewhat spotty radio reception problem. I recently sold her car and was looking for a replacement radio. I paired the car adapter kit with the XM Onyz EZ radio and had the perfect solution. The kit was easy to install...I did it under a tree with no tools other than a Phillips head screwdriver. My only complaint is that it does not include any cable routing guides which would have made the wiring a little neater. These are readily available in just about any hardware store.

Pros: Very easy to install

Cons: No cable routing guide rings

Good product

thedeter from Arizona on 5/8/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the exact product that I was needing. Thanks to Crutchfield for making it easy to find the right product.

Pros: Does what I needed it to

Cons: Cost is a bit high for a dock.


Hands-on research

SiriusXM Vehicle Kit (SXDV3): The XM Dock & Play PowerConnect Second Vehicle Kit (SXDV3) allows you to install select SiriusXM, XM, or Sirius Satellite Radio dock & play tuners in your vehicle.

Note: In addition to the dock & play tuner, a subscription to SiriusXM, XM, or Sirius Satellite Radio is also required.

Compatibility: The SXDV3 Vehicle Kit is compatible with SiriusXM, XM, and Sirius dock & play radios (all sold separately) working on either the XM or Sirius network. The SXDH3 includes two dock adapters to accommodate a variety SiriusXM, XM, and Sirius radios. Compatible dock & play radios include -

  • SiriusXM Radios: Onyx Plus, Edge
  • XM Radios: Onyz EZ, Onyx, ExpressRCi, XpressRC, XpressR
  • Sirius Radios: Stratus 7/6/5, Sportster 5, Starmate 8/5/4/3

Vehicle Dock: The SiriusXM Vehicle Kit includes a docking cradle to connect your compatible Satellite Radio tuner in the vehicle. The vehicle dock features color-coded connectors to assist you in connecting the cables to the correct connector. The vehicle dock provides three connection options to transfer Satellite Radio audio to your vehicle's audio system.

  • PowerConnect: The SiriusXM Vehicle Kit comes supplied with a PowerConnect FM transmitter/cigarette lighter adapter which allows your Satellite Radio receiver to wirelessly transmit audio to your vehicle's in-dash head unit over and FM frequency. You can choose from any FM frequency between: 88.1 and 107.9 MHz. You can store up to 5 FM stations so you can quickly access the stations which give you the best audio reception when using the PowerConnect. The PowerConnect FM transmitter/cigarette lighter adapter simply plugs into the power port of the included vehicle dock and the cigarette lighter or 12-volt accessory port of your vehicle.
  • Auxiliary: The vehicle dock has a minijack audio output (3.5mm) to connect the unit directly to your in-dash head unit's auxiliary input (if applicable), using the supplied stereo minijack cable. When using the line output jack, you can adjust the level to match your head unit's other sources.
  • FM Direct (optional): The FM Direct Adaptor (607FMDA25, sold separately) connects directly in-line with your vehicle's existing AM/FM antenna input (Motorola) and the SXDV3 vehicle dock's FM output (2.5mm). This optimizes the signal of the PowerConnect FM transmitter/cigarette lighter adapter's built-in FM modulator to your vehicle's radio, especially in regions with a high density of FM radio stations and few open FM channels.

Magnetic Antenna: The SiriusXM Vehicle Kit unit comes supplied with a magnetic antenna that is designed to be run outside of the vehicle and placed on the roof of your vehicle. The magnetic antenna will adhere to your vehicle's sheet metal.

Mounting: The mounting location of the SXDV3 should be easily accessible for controlling your docked XM receiver and provide good visibility of the unit's display, and should not be located where it will be in direct sunlight, which will affect the visibility of the display screen. The SiriusXM Vehicle Kit comes with two mounting options.

  • Self-Adhesive Dash Mount: The SXDV3 includes a self-adhesive plastic mount which allows you to place the unit on your vehicle's dash. The self-adhesive dash-mount allows you to swivel and adjust the unit for better visibility.
  • Vent Mount: The SXDV3 also includes a vent mount bracket, so the unit can be mounted to your air conditioning vent.
Note: When mounting the SXDV3 in your vehicle, choose a location where it will not block your vision, interfere with the controls, or obstruct the air bag.
