Default what sirius radio do you recommend

I am a taxi driver who drives Ford Crown Vics for a living and have just recently purchased the XACT Visor receiver. I have placed the antenna on both the roof and on the dash and still have a poor signal. I have no way of running a wire into the radio nor is there a tape deck. I can only use the FM wireless transmitter function and have tried every frequency. I like the set up of this model, but the signal is worse than AM! Is there a better model then the one that I purchased. Any help?

when you say poor signal, is the signal bad? or is it just the FM Transmission so bad, you can't hear it? Don't know much about the Xact, and it's various mounting abilities.....try moving the xact closer to the stereo. The FM Transmitters are bad.(Thanks to the FCC)

I like the Sportster Replay. Also, I got my dad the Sirius One. Very compact. I installed right underneath his stereo in his car. sounds nice and clear.

You could unscrew your FM antenna. Plus, I am wondering if your Dispatch Radio could be interferring.
