      Ok. So. I didn't know this about the unit when I bought it. My escalade was haveing issues with the radio (head unit) receiving a audio signal from the factory DVD player in the second row seats. So I thought. Hay. I use to have a fm mogulator way back in the day for when xm was xm and it first came out. I could plug any standards 3.5mm in to it and it would work! I'll just buy this and do the same. Well. Turns out. You can't do that with this. I even bought 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapters to try and see if it would work. No go. Apparently. The new xm radios send out a didgital signal and not a analog signal. And that's what you need. An analog signal. So don't buy this. At least. Not if your going to try using it like I was planing on doing. It won't work. You will need a iSimple IS32 TranzIt USB Universal...fm modulator. That's what I got. And after finding the left and right and ground audio wires in the wire harness in the DVD player in back. And running a simple rca left and right all the way up to the dash and connecting it to a rca/3.5mm adapter. It worked great! I picked the one up with the USB charger for 50$. Oh. You will need two Atenna adapters too if your going to use your factory head unit. The factory has a weird plug. Not the normal antenna plug. I hope this helps anyone who looking to do what I wanted to do.

      I bought the Direct Relay because I regularly travel to both Indianapolis and Chicago for work, and in both cities even the "clear" channels have a lot of static when using the built in FM transmitter on the Sportster 5. I tried to make an appointment for professional installation at Best Buy, but after finding out it would be several days before my local store could get me an appointment, I decided to try it myself. At first I was a bit intimidated because I know nothing about car stereos, but installation turned out to be very simple and only took a few minutes. Simply remove your car's stereo from the dash (you can find instructions by doing a Google search) and attach the adapter into the antenna jack. Then plug the wire into your Sirius radio and put your car stereo back into place. Never have static again. On Friday I took my first trip to Chicago since installing it and was 100% static free. And I'd never realized how much static I was picking up even around home that I hadn't heard before. The one negative, even though it isn't a huge deal is the tenancy for channels to sound "quiet" which isn't a big problem to me, but might be a problem if you like listening to your music loud.

      Great product makes my Sirius sound seriously good

      I live in the Phoenix Metro area and around here you can't find an FM channel that's not receiving some sort of signal. If your car stereo doesn't have an AUX jack (like mine) then you only have three option. Rely on the built-in FM transmitter on your Sirius radio, install a whole new deck with an AUX jack or install this relay. I chose to install the relay because there's nothing wrong with my deck and the relay only costs $30 bucks. It made a world of difference. Now when I'm driving around town, I don't have to switch FM stations every few miles. The sound is perfect and clear in any area at any time of day. Installation was incredibly simple. Once I got my console taken apart and removed the deck, it only took me about 5 minutes to install the unit and replace my deck. If you've ever removed a car radio before, you should be able to install this yourself. It was truly a piece of cake. This is a great product which does exactly what is advertised. Thanks for the easy and cheap solution Sirius!

      Major Improvement!

      The Sirius Stratus 7 is definitely the low end of the Sirius Radio Lineup and I own one...after reading many different reviews and lamenting the decision to have ever purchased the Stratus 7 Radio, I remembered having installed an XM Commander Radio in a previous vehicle (...back in 2005). There was a Direct Connect kit that allowed you to more efficiently transmit your Satellite Radio signal to your FM Head unit. This FM Direct Adapter is the modern version of the same thing and it is actually improved over the one I installed back in 2005, with an even better and more direct signal! The inline connection via your antenna wire is ingenious and works flawlessly! It drastically decreased the risk of my Stratus 7 Radio being thrown out the window while travelling over a high bridge! Though I still suggest investing in a better Sirius/XM Radio Tuner than the Stratus 7, this accessory VASTLY improved my Satellite Radio listening experience!

      XM Direct Radio Automobile Adapter

      This product works beautifully! I am so very pleased with the efficiency and lack of loosing any radio signal no matter where or change in range. Best Buy Servicemen "Jessie & Andrew" installed this device with ease without causing any damage to car or dash in just a few minutes. We were so thankful the windshied did not have to be removed for installation. We wouldn't be without this device. Our neighbor purchased only the radio (to cut corners and save on expense) but looses signal when range changes during travel. We never loose our signal! Very pleased with the excellent service received at the Palmdale, CA location. We enjoy our XM Radio! 5 Stars and 2 Thumbs! Thanks Best Buy for your advice purchasing this item.

      I was getting poor reception using my satellite radio through a fm channel on the radio. I have the satellite antenna on the dashboard. The direction say it must be on the roof and not on the dashboard. The clerk at BestBuy recommenced this product. I plugged it into the antenna spot on the back of my radio and I left the satellite antenna on the dashboard. Problem solved. I am very pleased. Possible minor issues for some, but not for me. I need to turn off the satellite receiver if I want to listen to the other radio stations since it causes interference. Also, a wire runs out of the dashboard to the wireless receiver. I have the docking station on the windshield, so this is just one more wire. My car is old and beat up so this does not bother me.

      I was just about to give up on Sirius due to the lack of strength by the FM transmitter, then I discovered the direct audio relay. This thing is awesome. Before I would have to turn off my sirius and rely on either "traditional" radio, or CD's whenever I was within 30 miles of DC. Now my Sirius rocks wherever I go. The install was very easy, although my Sirius power plug broke when I disassembled the dash. But this just gave me a reason to revamp my entire install and make all of my wires hidden, just required a trip to the hardware store for some splicing material and an inline fuse holder. Now my reception is crystal clear and I've regained my power plug. One warning though, if you've got a Chrysler you're going to be on the hook for about another $30 for adapters.

      A MUST have for XM

      Posted

      My old XMFM1 died. So I upgraded to the XM Onyx. If your radio does not have an "AUX" input, you must have this adapter for your system to get the best sound. Installing the adapter was very simple. If your are not sure about taking your radio or dash area apart, Google it or check out You-Tube. I found step by step instructions and is was not too much of a hassle. Had my system all removed and installed in a hour or so. This adapter has a far better sound than the old one. No static problems at all. Make sure you locate a clear FM signal for your XM. It's the best 20 bucks you will spend for your system. Do not forget to tie up all the loose cables.
