: how do i know if i have xm radio? ipod compatible?

07-21-09, 06:45 PM
i searched but couldnt find what i was looking for.. probably laziness on my behalf.

i have a cts sport with nav and xm radio seems to be an option, but ive never used it, or even used the trial 3 months.
firstly, how do i know if i have xm, and secondly, even if xm isnt being paid for, can i still do an ipod hook up, or does xm need to be up and running for it to work.
any installers in new york?:2thumbs:
will pay cash/beer/photos of gf

also- those presets for the equalizer. how the f*** do you keep them? each time i adjust per station, and it goes back to an original setting with no bass, sounds like a church

hit source still SAT radio or XM pop up
if they dont you dont have XM
also check your roof for a small black antenna in the middle towards the rear

ok, so ive got xm, thanks!
so, my next question is, even if i dont have the xm subscription, these USA Spec PA11VETTE iPod Interface's will plug/play with my existing setup, correct?

Does your car have the memory buttons on the door panel?
If so, adjust the stereo to your liking and press the number 1 button untill it beeps, this should memorize your radio settings as well as the seats, hvac, etc., or at least it did on my car.

yeh i got that memory seat which remebers the station i like, but the bass, mid and treble settings change back to old settings which i never wanted, nor want
