AVN5500 - Display stuck at "Updating" when using Sirius.
When I play sirius radio, the display is stuck with the message "updating" in the center of the screen and I can't do anything with it. I can't change the channels using the touch screen (I'd have to use channel up and down), I can't show the title of the song being played, etc.
When I first start the car, there is no problem with the display, however, after I go into reverse, or if I were to show the title, then the "updating" message will show. Any idea what's going on here? This message has been there for the past week, so I don't think it's really updating anything from Sirius.

Check fuse. Second if radio has any display and no functions are working it is likely a radio failure. To remove and replace this radio is very simple. The top of the dash around the radio will remove allowing for access to the screws retaining the unit.
Your best solution would be to look for a salvaged unit. If not than find a service center that provides an estimate on the repair cost.
The GPS Sirius radio with multi CD's is very expensive to buy new.
I have a Kenwood ddx6019 with XM satellite radio and sirius. i want to know how do i turn on the xm so i can get live traffic update and my garmin gps unit and weather. and were to i find the mx radio id for xm. i found it for sirius
You can try it, but I think you might need a media expander/controller. I see some going for around $100 on Ebay. It allows you to add and interface many component to your deck. But make sure the deck ready to control it. You can tell by the label on the deck(Ipod ready, XM ready, Sirius ready, Changer ready....ect). Goodluck.
The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.
