I just purchase a factory touch screen nav out of a 2004 escalade for my 2003 Escalade. What do I need to do to get the XM hooked up and active? Just call XM and subscribe? What info do they need from me about the unit/escalade? Thanks!

Go to channel 0 and it will show your XM radio ID number. Give that to the XM radio people and they will hook you up.

Did your 2003 have XM on the regular Bose? If not, you'll need an XM Tuner unless it's built into the Nav.

If you have an XM Tuner, then follow post #2.

I'm not sure if I had XM on the regular Bose? How would I know? It was the stocdk radio with CD and tape. Does the touch screen nav have XM built in?

OK....are there two antennae on the roof of the vehicle, or just one? The small mast antenna above the driver is for OnStar. The flat round one over the passenger is for XM.

If you don't have one over the passenger, you don't have XM. If you do, then you do.
