You have to have XM-RADIO!
Well, you spent $200,000-$300,000 already, what is another 1/10th of 1% more($299.) My XM Radio is now installed and it is wonderful! Jazz, blues, classical, country, R&R, 40Â’s, 50Â’s, 60Â’s 70Â’s 80Â’s, 90Â’s and even CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC and BBC(The best news on the planet). At least 100 different channels so far, even Latin stations, and all crystal clear digital sound.
There are many different models, but I choose the SONY so I could move it between the Cirrus, car and home. My avionics guys shortened the antenna wire to about 5" and wired another 12V cigarette plug under the panel somewhere and tied the output sound into the back of the Garmin intercom. They tied into the same wire going to the socket in the glove box. The power and the sound wires protrude up through a new grommet hole in the sunshield a few inches. We just used Velcro to stick it to the top of the dash in the center. It is very low profile. The small satellite antenna is also Velcro mounted to the dash further out near the windshield.
What is really cool is setting it to your favorite station and listening to it all the way across the country. (IÂ’ve not flown out of the state yet, but assume it will work anywhere)
One more thing you will need is the “Sound Booster” by Mike&Max, just as required for most MP3 players.
Just get it, you will love it!
