For the best deals on XM radios, check
www.XMFanStore.com
I use a Roady2, with direct wire to the AUX port on my
AM/FM/CD radio. My Roady2 stays in the glove box
in a zip-lock sandwich baggie..it stays tuned to 60's oldies,
so I don't need to worry about having to change channels.

Duster,
May I ask you a few more questions?
Do you use an external antennae with your radio? Where do you mount it? eBay sells your type of radio for $59 ...does that seem right to you? Your radio has a built in fm transmitter! Are you using that or do you use a jack plug into your other radio exclusively?

Many thanks

The Roady2 had the best FM transmitter...I presently own 4.
2 are active...1 on the scooter, 1 in the pickup.
In the pickup, I have the XM antenna right next to the
standard AM/FM antenna, & use the 'wireless' feature.
On the scooter, my XM antenna is mounted on the right
corner of the dashboard hood, in the flat spot right next
to the edge of the windshield..the wire is routed down
into the glovebox...coming through the openings for
the battery cables. The XM receiver lays in front of
the battery, & I have it wired to the AUX RCA inputs
on the back of my AM/FM/CD radio. On my previous
AM/FM/CD radio, I used the 'wireless' feature here also.
When I replaced the AM/FM radio last July, I chose a
radio with the AUX input in the back..RCA plugs.
The speakers mounted with the radio package are
the 'fronts', & my helmet speakers are the 'rears'.
The radio package is from Jac Vinson at
http://www.RVToys.net
I had him install it at the scooter rally in Eureka
Springs, Ark. in Aug. 2005. Had him leave the wires
for the rear speakers dangle loose..I installed the
the 1/4 inch speaker jack for the helmet speakers
myself at a later time, after I got the helmet speakers.
This radio/XM receiver setup seems to work best for me...
carefully consider your options..something completely
different may work better for you. Many XM receivers
need to feed through an AM/FM radio...some do not.

Thank you Duster. I ordered the Roady 2 for three reasons, the FM transmitter, it's price and the fact that you use it and it works well on the Burg. Thank you for your useful information. Can't wait to get moving on this.

Regards


Rick

For people that have SiriusXM receivers, & don't want to deal with
20 foot long antenna wires, the XM FanStore I posted above has
antennas with a 4 foot wire...& they also have extension wires
for folks that need more than 20 feet.
Sirius receivers & XM receivers use the same antenna. SMB connector.
The http://www.XMFan.com website is a good place to get answers about
all things XM.
