Well I think I am going to get sat radio, finally. I know there are a ton of post on this but I am going for the latest and greatest.

I am looking for:

  • Portable unit I can use in the truck and on the bike
  • Would prefer ant on the unit (see above)
  • Want to hardwire the output for better sound
  • Thinking internal rechargeable batteries
  • Don't care about MP3
  • Won't be using it walking (i.e. headphones)
Any suggestions? The inno always caught my eye but it may be dated now.

Thanks again,
Danny

I have the inno and like its small size, but not its controls. The MyFi I got a few years ago was the best for that [and they're still around in refurbished mode]. My biggest concern is that no XM/Sirius radio is water resistant or water tolerable. That means carrying plastic bags to put over the unit before the rain gets to the unit.

I run the GXM 30 to my Zumo and find the water resistance a nice feature.

Greetings!

Here's a simple little setup:







The radio is a Delphi Sportscaster which I got for the princely sum of $9.95 by adding it to an existing subscription. it is attached to the bike with Velcro and wired in to a Kennedy AuxInput module.

Danny didn't ask about this, but as far as I know there is only one purpose built XM Radio for motorcycles. The price they want for it reflects that well.... And it doesn't need a plastic bag over it... :)

The Road Tech AL20 XM Satellite Radio is waterproof, touts a crystal clear LCD screen with adjustable backlighting and the PAD data is meant to be very easy to read. The large backlit buttons also ensure that riding gloves don't become an obstacle to changing channels. As a special benefit to seasonal riders, the radio kit comes with an automobile mounting bracket. With the additional purchase of an automobile kit from XM, the Radio Tech AL20 can easily be transferred to a four-wheel "ride" during winter.

Each Road Tech AL20 XM Satellite Radio will include three months of complimentary XM service and is available through Harley-Davidson Parts and Accessories for an MSRP of $249.95

The Radio Tech AL20 looks interesting but I can't fin much info on it. Does it take batteries or require an external source? (plug in) and does it have its own ant or require that as well.

Thanks for the info,
Danny
