"Great Product for those without an AUX port"4.5 starson by krc333
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Must have XM subscription
Screen somewhat touchy when scrolling
Summary: This is a great solution if you don?t have an AUX port like my wife?s 06 Pilot. The FM transmitter is different than most as the signal works through the dashboards electrical system instead of sending a signal to the car antenna. The antenna on my wife?s Pilot is on the back window so most FM Transmitters (like the Skyfi 3 I have) won?t send the signal that far. We get zero static in Denver, which surprised me, and drove to Des Moines and only had to change the FM setting once because of static.
The screen can be overly sensitive when scrolling which is my only issue, that and the fact you have to have an XM subscription.
The reason they did this is so you have to add the Best of Sirius to your XM subscription in order to hear Howard Stern and the NFL. It basically doubles the cost of your yearly subscription. My subscription went from $88 for the a year to $204 when I mentioned I wanted Stern and the NFL as well. Still worth the cost but leaves you feeling a bit bitter about the deal. For $85 you can?t beat it, because Cnet also forgot to mention you can play your iTunes and receive phone calls while it?s in the cradle as well.
