Included accessories
The package includes a docking cradle for connecting to your home stereo, an antenna for picking up the XM signal, and a miniplug-to-RCA audio cable. XM also includes a handy remote for controlling the action.

Note: A subscription to XM is also required. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service available in Alaska and Puerto Rico.

The Onyx Rcvr was everything we expected it would be. Total satisfaction. Did not get 3 months free, though.
