    Heck yeah it does. My dad's shop he used to work at selling custom motorcycles had XM that ran through the showroom and shop area and thats all they keep it on.

    I've been pondering making the switch once I get my stereo setup how I want. Keep us posted on how you like it.

    The Boneyard is all I want it on when I am with the wife. She's not such a fan of it though. Standing rule is if I have to ride with her that the first channel is 41. I also try the one above. Maybe one day I will get it in my truck.

    I don't think it's too bad though, it installs into your existing head unit on an auxillary RCA in on the back of the head unit I believe. Then how much is it per month?

    I just got the FM transmitter one, so I can use it in all my trucks, in the house, and the boats, and canoeing. If I get a snap on battery pack, ya can stick in yer pocket and listen on headphones.


    Lynda loves the BBC channel, of course. :wink1:

    cool, I have an FM transmitter for my mp3 player and it sucks in town but is great out on the road, is this like that or is it strong enough to overtake the frequencies floating through the air?

    Also they advertise prices at Circuit City, Best Buy, etc. for the monthly rate...is that really all it is or are there initial charges or other monthly things that pop up?
    That is if you don't mind me asking.

    I suppose they're all similar. $12.50 a month. It works better than my MP3 transmitters, I've got three of those.
    All battery powered is why I don't like those. Should have gotten 12VDC plug in for them. Anywho, the signal is very strong.

    This is the kit I want in a couple of weeks.................
