Question about XM Radio Audio Players & Recorders

XM radio reception issues

I have a 2008 Toyota Tundra with a JBL radio.  I recently had a soundlinq2 (SL2xmt) radio interface installed so I could receive XM radio.
My problem is during a rain storm I have zero reception on XM, the text reads NO SIGNAL.
My wife has a 2004 Buick Rainier with a factory installed radio with XM radio.  She has NO reception issues.
Any ideas.
Thanks

If you have the magnetic antenna, check it for a little nick on the cable on the outside of the car where water might get in to it. A little water can short the ground and the antenna wire. You also can wash (with lots of water around where the antenna cable is) and see if it happens again, then you will know it not just the weather

Recently I noticed that it loses reception much more often in my car and it shows ?no signal? in my home which has never happened before.


You may have HAD a terrestrial repeater in your city and they may have closed it down due to overpowered per FCC rules or for maintenace. Call XM and report the signal issues and ask them if there is a repeater in your town.

XM Radio in 2008 Hyundai Sonata sounds bad


Same problem here. I repeatedly complained to XM but got no reply. I listen to XM in 2009 Sonata and it was just as bad.

XM is better than AM. Much worse than FM.

How to hook up the sirius stratus 5 radio in my 2008 rav4?


I have sirius installed in my 2008 RAV4 JBL system.
There is an adapter made by VAIS technologies http://www.vaistech.com/ that is called a soundlink. It comes with instructions for the connection. The Sirius radio is hidden in this installation, and is controlled by your JBL system. The antenna runs up the side of the windshield (hidden behind the plastic moulding) and mounts to the top right corner of the roof.

HOWEVER- you will not have the full funcionality of the Stratus 5 radio- which has more funtionality that the JBL system can control. Also, the Scrolling feature on the Stratus 5 screen does not work on the JBL display. . . you get the first 15 or so characters, with no scrolling.

I love having an integrated satelite radio in my car, but I do miss the better screen, and the pause feature I had on my sportster (in my old car). Good Luck.
