Re: Sirius Radio

Seems that it doesn't buffer enough to last more than a few seconds. My Challenger radio is even worse.

Re: Sirius Radio

I've been using Sirius for a long long time. On many vehicles, some with aftermarket receivers and some with OEM receivers.

Out here where I live and drive, terrestrial repeaters pretty much don't enter into the equation. There ain't none. (well, I think there are some near the cities, but that isn't where most of my driving is)

Short version: S-band and foliage do not get along well.

One thing that I've gotten used to is that, when Spring rolls around and the trees start getting their foliage on, Sirius gets dicey. Not usually unusable, but kinda annoying. The WK2/RA4/Sirius seems to be a bit more affected than the WK Sirius.. but it isn't night and day.

The silver lining is when the Fall arrives.. I get to take drives with stunning color, then the leaves fall, and Sirius becomes rock solid!

Re: Sirius Radio

I have had Sirius radio in my last 2 cars, and have installed the system also in the last two cars. I found out the position of the antenna is extreemly critical, but some moving it around can make all the difference in the world. I also installed it in my wifes 2004 VW beatle convertible. That was a challenge. I wound up putting it on the engine hood near the wipers. The bug has no surfaces that are flat except that place. It works perfectly with no drop outs. Also on my last SUV I installed it on the rear roof. Had a problem at first due to the luggage rack which was too close to the antenna. Once I moved the rack...problem solved no drop out. My 2013 JGC Ltd. has Sirius and their are no drop outs at all with exception of parking ramps and big city buildings.
