    Sirius/XM Radio

    My Trophy SE Sirius/XM radio is terrible.  The stations are constantly in and out.  If I'm on a back road with trees forget about satellite radio.  I had my Zumo 665 onboard for a time and even though that radio was never great it worked way better than the Trophy stock radio.  Just wondering how it's worked for others.  I have a bunch of old XM antennas but can't imagine there is a way to use anything other than the Trophy stock antenna.

    I haven't had the chance to see any, so I can't say much about it.

    In Europe we don't have that system. At most we have the DAB system.

    If it is true, that I have read conversations of people of the United States that the same thing happens to them that you comment.

    Anyway, you could try an amplifier with about 18 dB of gain. I think the frequencies range from 2320 to 2345 Mhz. It is very common in Satellite receivers.

    Can't help with the base question, but i have a portable Sirius receiver in the car. Because i don't want to play for it in the truck also and also on the motorcycle that i can only ride a few months of the year, i beat it by utilizing the Sirius mobile app on my phone. Not as easy to change channels but, it's free!

    I can use my phone too but there are a couple disadvantages.  I'm not on an unlimited data plan so I have to be careful about audio and video streaming.  I like to ride back roads and cell phone signals can be iffy.

    Hello, can you explain how you enter with the keypad in mode for Sirius / XM satellite radio?

    Once inside and listening to satellite stations, what appears on the screen? The name of the station?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have my android phone paired to the Trophy SE bluetooth.   I have a Sirius XM app on the phone which I use to select stations.  Just streaming Sirius XM radio so using cell data.  I  leave the app on the favorite channel screen making it easy to change channels.  The bike display will show artist and song or whatever radio content is playing.  With my android phone I send media audio to the Trophy SE and phone calls to the Zumo XT.  When I post images on this site they always show up extra large even though it's a small jpg.

    Thank you, I understand perfectly and it will be of good help to me to carry out some tests when I have time.

    The antenna that you have installed is nothing other than a bulgar satellite antenna that is inserted in the anchor that we see installed in your motorcycles in the United States and Canada.

    I have installed a satellite antenna that I use for the two cameras that I have installed, one front and one rear.

    I really appreciate that information.
