Question about Kenwood DNX7100 Car Video Player
I have installed XM radio on my Kenwood 7100 and the XM stations sound like crap. There is a faint static in the background, mostly noticeable when someone is speaking. There is also a sporatic cracking or skipping during play. This only happens with XM stations. I have Radio, DVD, and TV on this unit and those are crisp and clear. I have double checked all connections and there is no interference between the reciever and the SAT. I get all the stations and recieve the traffic updates and weather from XM with a max signal. I am using the GXM 30 XM (smart ant). I have checked with tech support at Kenwood, Garmin and XM and each blames one of the others products. None would provide a possible cause or own up to "their" product being possibly at fault.
I have my XM antenna on top of the cab immediately above my head and the Garmin inside the cab near the front speaker. So that would be another option in case you don't want to or don't have the cable to put one in the back. Have experienced no problems as of yet. Sound seems fine with my arrangement.

If the xm and gps antennas are close together this will happen. u will have to move one to the front and the other to the back of the vehicle.
