Default Aftermarket XM radio options on 03 EX NAVI Accord??


I recently got bit by the bug to get XM radio. I have an
EX 4 cyl. 2003 Accord with the navigation system. (which, by the
way, rocks...)

What is the best solution for this model of car to get
XM radio? I hear that the 2004 models come with XM radio
as a factory-installed option.

Is there a way to get the type of radio that's in the 2004
installed in-dash on my 2003? This would be my preferred option
as I don't like the idea of having to remember to take the XM
facing out of my car to prevent theft.

I should mention that in addition to the navi I have a
6 cd changer in-dash as well.

Thanks for your help....

Mike

For 2003, as I recall, there was a factory-approved dealer-installed
add-on XM package. Ask your dealer parts department. Check some online
Honda accessory places as well.

Thanks guys for the help. I really appreciate it.

I have one more question. Would I be able to take
this to a Honda dealer and have them install it, or would
they insist on me purchasing it from them and then doing
the install?

Thanks again....looks like I can save a bunch of
money by getting it online and having the dealer install it.

The factory-approved dealer-installed XM package is the same Delphi "XM
Commander" unit you can purchase from aftermarket shops for a lot less than
Honda sells it for. It uses an FM transmitter to transmit the sound through
your system by having you tuning to an unused radio station. The sound
quality is less than stellar.

You're better off going to an aftermarket shop who can install a hard-wired
system using a SoundGate adapter. It will cost less and sound better.
