Default I got XM satelite radio

I installed XM today, my mother has it in her truck and I thought it was pretty good so I got it. Its got alot of good stations on there (music and talk) but I was wondering if anyone else has it to see if they like it or not. Also want to get an idea as to were youve got the antenna for it mounted?

I've got my antenna on the trunk. Wherever you put it make sure there'* slack so you dont scratch the paint...I learned that the hard way.

I'd listen to my XM more if it didnt have the annoying "buzzing while engine is on and VigCS can't figure out why" problem.

I have Sirius and I love it. I have a FM Modulator adapter that goes to the back of the radio. When the Sirius is on it cuts out the antenna lead, and the sound quality is between CD and FM.

Like i've said before in other posts. Use 1/2" trim tape and mount it to the back window

Like I've got it done in this pic...

I've got it, love it, and have my antenna on my rear deck (inside the car).
