So far so good
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I was worried after reading all of the negative reviews but this was the only option for my eclipse unit. Keeping the other reviews in mind installed the so that I could take laptop out and reprogram the unit if needed. So far I have no issues at all. I will say that the best install instructions are a review on another site. I am including 1. Down load the XM direct software from [...] 2. Plug in your CNP2000UC (the XM adapter thing), your computer should prompt you to install software. - Choose the second option that says "Install from a list or specific location (advanced)" and press Next - Click the box that says "Include this location in the search" and browse or type in the path "C:\Program Files\XM Direct 2" and press next - That should get you the the XM Universal Board v3 programing that you need. 3. Now the hard part DON'T use the instructions that pop up when you click on the short cut that gets installed on your desk top. Instead go to my computer > C: > Program Files > XM Direct 2 > usbprog Use the "usbprog" to program your unit. 4. You may have to use the Direct File Select option if the list of car stereo models is to long to show on the screen, if you do the path you will need is: my computer > C: > Program Files > XM Direct 2 > HEADUNITS > YourBrand > YourModel Once the blue bar runs across the bottom of the usbprog window then your unit is programed!
Pros: Quick and easy to connect to radio. Works well
Cons: The instructions that come in the box. That's why I included better ones above
