    Like the title, I read every review and noticed a problem in the antennae. If not for that, I would have given it 5 stars as my music plays flawlessly. The problem is the antenna jack, it's too loose and then the satellite error message comes on. It's not the outside black antennae but rather the wire must be jiggled until you get a clear sound. If you want, try placing a piece of tape where the antennae comes into the Onyx or what every you have. Now, my music plays and I do very minor tweaking of the antennae wire. Drove to Florida and lost reception about 10 times and jiggled the wire every time. That's about it, same service as your current model but now I can work the onyx between 2 different cars and never have a problem doing that

    Previous Sirius was shorted out while in use due to problem with car. Have come to really enjoy SiriusXM and wanted to continue my subscription. Did my research on what meets my needs and all of the new features. Chose this product and it's great. It's sleek looking, has a lot of extras I really don't need but has added significantly to it convience and easy use. Everything was compatible with previous model. Multiple adapters for docking port were included. Con: Previous model provided 1hour of loop recording (for one Chanel). This model only provides 30 min. Pro: This model provides 30min loop recording on all my designated favorite Chanel's even when not listening to that Chanel.

    a great way to use my portable Sirius radio

    I had Best Buy install the vehicle kit in my latest vehicle. This time, the installer was able to route the sound to a pair of RCA input jacks rather than use the FM modulator. That's a great improvement, in my opinion. Since I have a "lifetime" subscription (with 2 radio swaps left), I don't want to use the built-in Sirius radio because I'll have to pay for and use up one of my swaps. This kit lets me use the portable receiver in both vehicles plus in the house.

    It's what you need to hook Sirius up to your car.

    I believe most Sirius radios come with a car kit, but if you need another car kit, this is it. It works and you'll nee to install everything properly (tuck cables away, etc), however it isn't difficult. Caution though: if you're looking to replace parts on an older car kit, then the parts may not be a perfect match (particularly the power adapter). However, there is an appropriate power adapter that fits the included docking station so it may not be a big deal.

    Only "ok"

    It works, but not spectacularly well. The mounting options for the receiver dock are limited, and not well thought out (dock and receiver are too bulky and heavy for the vent mount...and actually broke my vent) The antenna, I suspect, is just not up to the job... lots of signal loss, even in clear air with no obstructions. On the whole, a good idea, badly implemented.

    We had received a free, older Sirius radio with lifetime access. The only issue was the cables for the antennae and power were frayed. Purchasing this kit not only upgraded the base, and cables, I now use the AUX cable so I don't have to deal with interference over picking an FM station. Very glad I made this purchase as it's great to have known stations during long road trips.

    I haven't had time to use the product yet (a Sirius radio antenna for my car) but I want to compliment Cameron in the Service Dept. who installed it. He was patient with my questions, courteous, professional, efficient, and hid all the wires beautifully. He's helped me before and has always provided service above & beyond the call of duty. Give this young man a RAISE!

    I've had several radios now with Sirius over the years and the antennas have all been pretty good. This one I am not impressed with. Mainly it seems that shape of it makes it tough to get signal sometimes. It works okay but not as well as the flatter disc shaped ones of the past. The rest of the kit is solid, as it comes with all the things you will need to mount it,etc.

    Functional radio in car, less in home.

    The radio setup is fairly clear and common sense. The antenna placement for best reception is easier in the car but more of a struggle in the apartment. There it will fade in and out which is highly frustrating for enjoyable listening. The excess wire in the car however needs to find a place for neatness.

    I needed a secondary car kit for my XM receiver. I bought this in-store and had it up and running within minutes. The only problem I encountered was that the power cord was too large for the charging port. I had to shave it down with a grinder to fit into the port. Otherwise, it works great.

    This has everything you need for a car installation. This should be obvious, but do keep in mind that to use Sirius XM in the car you will need to mount an antenna on the outside top of your vehicle. You will then need to run the wire from this antenna to the inside of your vehicle. This can be difficult.

    I purchased this to add an extra dock in my other car. They have made improvements to the original dock with the clips that hang onto your air vents. Set up was easy and they give you an ample amount of wires to be able to place your radiorder right where you want it.

    I have used this product on numerous occasions on various vehicles. It is solid and workable, and I haven't encountered problems with this installation on this or previous occasions. While it's not perfect, it does the job competently and well.

    junk

    I've had a lot of issues with the Sirius products. I've had to replace the radio itself, numerous power cords, antennas, docking stations etc. Get a radio made by someone else that is SiriusXm ready because all of their stuff is absolute JUNK!

    Bought this item to replace a broken antennae wire. Shorty after replacing the antennae wire, the power cord wire started fraying. I'm so glad I bought this item. You never know when something else will break. Good price for the item too.

    We bought this needing to replace the base due to the one we had was cutting out alot. We bought this one and it's doing same thing. We ended up just buying new radio, for the cost of this kit, we should have just bought new one.

    This is my third power adaptor for Serius radio, the wires break easily. This product is what I need to that's good. But you have to buy the entire kit for a bunch more money than if the power adaptor were sold separately.
