    Buy the cord from radio shack and splice into the XM...very easy and sounds GREAT.

    Here's a pic before I tied the wires all up and was testing it out.....

    X3 although I was one of the guys who never could get all four speakers working with it. Oh well the fronts are plenty loud for what I use it for anyhow.

    or you could install a Neo Prolink or USASpec device that would give you a 3.5mm (1/8") aux in, as well as an iPod interface

    You can go stupid-easy by getting an FM-transmitter with RDS. I use the Soundfly-i Ultimate. It's not as bad as FM transmitters typically have been in the past. Also, this unit displays the song and artist name on the first line (white text) of the V Navi screen. Too bad it doesn't use the longer line that displays the green text.

    I use the USA SPEC interface. I like it because the sound quality is great, it has an aux input and an iphone/ipod input as well. The iphone/ipod connection is nice because it charges the device and also lets you control the unit directly or via the car's controls. Direct control is nice because I can run pandora while driving but with better quality than an FM modulator.

    I just put the USA Spec Ipod connector on my gf's SRX last week ,and although it was a pita to install, it's pretty slick. It goes through the stock head unit.

    The splicing into the DIC on our cars is super easy, and if you get the correct connections, it sounds perfect.
