XM Radio

I have a 2007 Sky and have never activated XM Radio. I recieved a letter from XM Stating that my vehicle has XM Radio and that I could get it activated for $4.99 for 6 months plus taxes.

What exactly do the Taxes amount to? This would be for a pre Paid 6 months then revert to $12 something automatic renewal unless i cancelled.

Is this a good deal?

Try looking at this Solstice thread to get the $77 deal. Good luck!

Pay for Radio???

Just can't do it


Sure the 6 months free were kinda nice, but too many drop outs in the Burgh.

Shoot, I'm still plenty happy with the Std radio playing MP3's

Perhaps some day..

I only did it since I have some daily commutes that take an hour each way. The mp3 cds get old quickly and I hated having to change radio stations as they lose signal. Otherwise I completely agree with you on paying for radio.

Hey gang,
Did a search on this but didn't find a definitive answer...

My '07 wasn't equiped with the XM module (which I think I read is located in the truck area). My radio of course still has the CAT button and is supposed to be XM compatible. All I'm missing is the XM Receiver.

Does anyone know if a plug & play module was created for those of us who didn't get the option? I'm looking to use the OnStar antenna and hopefully keep the setup as stock as possible.

Thx!

*ss*

On Ebay from time to time there are XM Roady type receivers, and you can get the small magnet type antenna for each car PLUS put an antenna in your house THEN the Roady transmits the signal through any radio, you set the frequency on the Roady and match it on your radio dial, and you are good to go, easy to move from car to car with the cigarette lighter power cord....this way you only pay one monthly fee for XM and have flexibility to use in your total fleet and home as well....just my $.02

XM and online service

FYI:
I called up today (9/3/09) to cancel my XM as there was going to be NO WAY I would pay full price. They offered me the $77 deal again. I told them
"I STILL wanted to cancel" because they now want 2.99 extra for the online radio I used to get for free. They then said they would offer me a credit for my next years online service. So you can STILL get online for FREE!
Henry

Need some technical help...installing a new factory radio in my SKY...it has XM...I know about the harness on the left. That is for the regular stations and it goes to monsoon, speakers, etc...there is a second harness...it is for the XM..but where does that go to...I do have the metal box in the back and the wiring...another question, do I have to change the shark fin. I have 2 coax cables going into 1. I know it is for On Star...but do I need another harness going into the shark fin for XM also?

I know about the codes that have to be installed.

Anybody have a link to a new deal for XM/Sirius? I saw one for $25/six months, but it looks like it's expired.
