You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Kenny Feb 17, 2017 ] Staff
MY BET IS THAT YOU WILL NEED TO CONNECT TO AN EXTERNAL WEATHERPROOF ANTENNA. THESE ARE FAIRLY INEXPENSIVE. THAT WILL CONNECT TO THE BOX VIA COAX CABLE. THE ANTENNA WILL NEED TO FACE A SOUTHERLY DIRECTION, AT LEAST IN MY AREA ON THE LEFT COAST. [ Douglas Aug 19, 2016 ]
Yes unless of course you can extend the antenna to an outside window or outside oriented to the proper compass direction for your srea. I believe you can find your proper direction from SiriusXm website [ Carmine Di Aug 19, 2016 ]
No, the output is either via 1/8" cable or FM channel, which then goes into an FM tuner. No Bluetooth out on mine, so not aware of that possibility. [ Tim Dec 09, 2015 ]

yes it plays all in my package 140 stations [ kenneth Jan 28, 2014 ]
THEY ARE THE SAME. YOU WILL HAVE TO SUBSCRIBE OF COURSE. YOU'LL GET A MULTI UNIT DISCOUNT. [ ANDREW Jan 28, 2014 ]
It depends on your SXM plan, because you will need to purchase a new plan for this new radio and its ID number. You can get an add-on radio plan, in which case, it will get the same channels you currently get in your car. You can also get a new separate plan for this radio, and get fewer, or more stations, depending on the plan you already have and the new plan. You can go to the SiriusXM web site, check out their channel list, and get any channel on that list, other than the ones marked as "Internet Only". It would depend on the new plan you get, because several stations require a premium subscription, and a couple of dozen are only available via the Internet Listening service. [ JAMES Jan 28, 2014 ]
Good Morning Phil As far as I can tell it plays all the channels my car radio plays. I love having this in the house. [ DAVID B Jan 28, 2014 ]
For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. They will also be able to give the run down of the radios that will be a good fit your vehicle. [ Jeff Dec 31, 2013 ] Staff
4 answers If I have a Sirius subscription in my vehicle, do I need another one for the home unit of does the vehicle subscription support both the car and my home? This apparently has an RCA jack or jacks to go into the back of my receiver or pre-amp. Will it work with any type of stereo system? Thank you, Larry [ Larry Dec 13, 2013 ]
NO. BOTH ARE COVERED WITH SAME APPLICCATIONFOR SERVICE. RON [ RONALD Dec 14, 2013 ]
Larry I bought The home kit including the portable speaker dock. Let me say it is a great speaker dock, been waiting for something like this for a while now. As far as a subscription goes, I paid 199.00 a year which averages out to 55 cents a day. It covers your car, computer, i phone and home. Not a bad deal. I remember going to a local store to purchase sirius xm from them, and was offered a puny little radio which wasn't even in stereo. Crutchfield really outdid themselves on this one. Well I hope this answered your ?. [ HECTOR M Dec 14, 2013 ]
I am pretty sure you need a separate subscription FOR EACH RADIO. If you had a portable unit in the car, you could disconnect it and take it into the house and that would be a single subscription, but with two separate units, it's two subscriptions. Your second subscription will cost less, however. I have 3 car units in 3 cars and one at my office. I will be buying another subsription for the home unit I bought. [ THOMAS L Dec 14, 2013 ]
yes, its flexable and adaptes well,i have a yamaha pre amp and the system sounds very good. ken [ KENNITH Dec 14, 2013 ]
