The GM SIRIUS Connect unit will provide factory functionality to all XM-Ready GM vehicles. It includes the tuner, harness and antenna. All you have to do is swap the XM-tuner for the SIRIUS Connect unit and install the new SIRIUS antenna.

It should be in retail some time in November.

Thanks, that's good news! The current adapter I have has a few, ummm, issues. When I switch between XM1 and XM2 it often (but not always!) forgets what station the other band was on. For example, if I'm on Octane on XM1 and switch to XM2 and select New Country, then later switch back to XM1, it does not re-tune to Octane (stays on New Country). The frustrating part is that is works as expected every so often. Other probs I've had include the system searching for XM and not finding the tuner, and the screen graphics have never changed to say Sirius instead of XM.

I've trouble-shot the installation and all is sat (no pun intended). I've also spoken to tech support and gotten dubious/conflicting advice. At least it mostly works most of the time!

Here's hoping the GM SIRIUS Connect is more seamless.

I would love to get a Minivan and one of thing that is holding me up is that I can't get Sirius thtough the Navigation in a Toyota or Honda.

Wasn't there supposed to be a Sportster/iPod executive docking station coming out?

Sirius Executive Docking Station

The Sirius Docking Station works with the Sirius Sportster, and folds flat for easy carrying. It will be available in October for $149.99 (list).

Yes, thanks. I was aware of this, but is it also iPod compatible?

You welcome, yes it is iPod compatible, you hook your ipod to it somehow, but I don't know how that will work?

Articles I've read say it will work with 50 2003+ GM vehicles. The wording on one article in particular (sorry, can't remember which) sounded like it might not work with ALL 2004+ or 2005+ GM vehicles. If that's the case, do we have a complete list of all compatible vehicles and years? Or if it REQUIRES that you have the XM option installed already...or just have the XM-Ready radio?

Ideas?

I believe that CMA has this for pre-order- not sure though- if they do order from them they are awesome!
