I had Xm for a few years and really liked it. I switched over to Sirius for Howard Stern. Now I listen to Jay Thomas, Bubba various music as well(Outlaw Country) and many of the Rock stations!!!
Use the Starmate 4 in my little Ford Ranger work truck everyday!
ive had sirius for about 2 1/2 years now and dont know how i lived without it before. have a docking station in both my trucks and one in my dad's rig as well as the home setup, only thing i ever listen to anymore
Pics would be helpfull. I have a aftermarket jensen dvd player in my pickup right now and a pioneer in my car. They both say sat. ready, I guess I dont know what that means. So is the above link the lastest and greatest? And the 2nd link is the install kit?
Ive had my sirius sportser for prob 7-8yrs now... wouldnt get rid of it for anything. hardly ever listen to regular radio since i have it... you can see my reciever in the lower right of pic.. made my own mounting bracket, did want mine up on the windshield or on the dash..
Awesome. So the antenna isnt very big at all then. I will go talk to someone and see what I need. Always like to know about these kinds of things before I go talk to someone local and have them sell me crap. Be there done that.....
I can one up ya on that one mine is an Delpi Roady....old as the hills looks antique but works like freak'n champ.........I would die without XM I live so far out no radio after bout 30 miles outside town..
(Strange, when you link to Amazon, there is an icon at the beginning of the link.)
On a pick up truck, I mount the antenna on the roof just in front of the third brake light. I remove the brake light, run the wire, Dremel a small notch in the base for the wire and then seal the base of the light with RTV. It works well and is the recommended method for many pick ups without a factory satellite antenna installed. Some people have decent results with the antenna mounted on the front of the dash.
The SL2 also works like a DVR. You can pause and rewind live radio for up to an hour. You can also record live or by timer. You can also record individual songs that you like. This is saved to it's internal memory.
The SL2 has a slot for a Micro SDHC. I have a 16GB card in mine with thousands of MP3s on it. It works like an iPod but the navigation is not nearly as elegant as that of the iPod. It works though.
I strongly recommend using a head unit with an auxiliary input. This is the only way to get the best sound. An FM relay is the second best. I used these on vehicles that did not have an auxiliary input. I was not happy going through the FM tuner on the head unit and ended up replacing it. I often briefly switch over to AM to check local traffic and news. With the FM relay, you have to shut off the Sirius to be able listen to anything else. The FM relay disconnects the external AM/FM antenna from the HU when the Sirius is on. The FM modulator is a joke and not recommended. I am picky about sound quality.
I have a 1997 F-250 xlt, I’m replacing the factory tape deck with an aftermarket Pioneer CD player. So far I’ve bought 2 different harnesses with no luck. My truck has two connections, the wide one and the smaller square one. The CD player comes on but I don’t get any sound from the speakers, if...

I need to talk about ford sync. If this is not a loud just delete. I have a 2015 F3 50lariat FX4 with AN 8 INCH screen. M buddy totaled his 2018 and gave me the APIM or “brain” of the system. I should be able to use my screen and his brain and make a sync 3 for my truck. Any thoughts. If anyone...
Figured I would post my build for this here. This is something I'm doing on the side (not during work hours) while also renovating one of my bathrooms and being a father.
