Let me know how it works out. I think Im going to go with the hard wire version. I cost a few more bucks but now I know why. The reception has too much static. NYC has so many radio stations that the reciever cannot find a dead spot on the tuner for the XM to broadcast on.sonny1213 said:I'm having the Sirius put in the Stang Tuesday. I just had it put in the Trailblazer and you can pop it right the no holes driiled holder made for each type of car. I have the boom box at home to put it in also. It's an awesome unit.
Yes, they have fixed the problems with a new chip, I guess and everyone on here that has tried it says it now works great. Here is the link to the actual part. http://www.logjamelectronics.com/piefrd04aux.htmlFleg said:
Looks great Chris!! I have the antenna in the same place but thats an interesting place for the radio......Hmmmm....might have to try that...You have it on there permanently or just velcro?!?!?CelticCub said:I installed the XM Commander unit a month after buying my Mustang and it works awesome! I ride an empty FM frequency and the reception is great. Not as good as if it were hard-wired, but I've got no complaints. I affixed the control unit above the headlight switch and placed the antenna on the rear dash (package tray).
CelticCub said:Thanks, Leon. I used 1" 3M foam adhesive tape. The unit came with 1/2" tape, but I opted for using two 1" squares, one on each end to secure it to the dash. It hasn't budged since I put it there and I'm reasonably certain it won't leave any marks on the dash grain. If it does, that piece can be replaced since it's apart from the main section of the dash.
The reception is great. I seldomly lose the signal. It cuts out once in a while but comes back almost immediately. And that's only when I'm driving around a lot of tall buildings or around twisty mountain passes with trees. It's not so often that I would consider relocating the antenna!
