XM Skydock with FM Direct Connection Has MORE Static, Not Less

I live in Atlanta, GA, drive an 1999 Chevrolet pickup and have my XM Skydock connected directly to my FM Modulator in my dash. However, the static is actually WORSE when I am connected directly than it was when using PowerConnect. I am using the recommend FM stations for my area & ZIP Code, but I was told a direct FM connection would make for clearer sound instead of worse.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to remedy this?
Thanks.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a portable XM and want to run the antenna

Yes, go to "Radio-Locator.com" - they have a selection for finding unused FM frequencies in your area. Actually, your radio will sound better using an "AUX" input or a cassette tape adapter.

Xm check atenna connection


If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

Skydock won't play iTunes through the radio like it does for the satellite radio. The song plays but no sound comes from anything other than the XM Skydock App.

Delphi skyfi2 Xm Radio Receiver car connection


Yes, you can buy an FM Direct adapter that will allow you to transmit directly to your car FM tuner, but if you have an older SkyFi2, the Fm transmitter is so strong, you can sit the radio on the floor and tune your car radio to your preset XM channel, like 107.1 FM and it will work great. Go into "Menu" and pick a channel that's not used locally.

Static sound or no sound with FM Trans and with Audio Plug


I agree with you. It sounds like an internal audio circuit problem, especially if the tape adapter does the same thing. Have you tries headphones on the unit? If they work, then get the sure connect as it plugs into the headphone jack (Aux out jack)

By the way, you as an XM customer for years, usually XM will just give you another unit to keep you as a customer. I've seen it many times. Couldn't hurt to ask!

FM Modulator


I haven't found any ways that work. A better option is to use this device http://www.xm-sirius-satellite-radio.com/SIRIUS_FM_Direct_Adapter_p/fmda25.htm to make a direct connection into your radio's antenna plug. This adapter allows your satellite radio to provide clear, static-free sound. It can be difficult to install, however, depending on how hard it is to get to the back of your vehicle's radio.
