Default Anyone have Sirius Radio on the boat ?

I was looking to put a portable Sirius unit in the boat to be able to swap it back and forth from the truck. I see the units use the FM modulator that broadcasts to a certain radio channel and plub into the cigarette lighter. Problem is that the mounting brackets are kind of ugly and bulky looking, and only come in black.

Does anyone have one in their boat? Do you have a picture of how it is mounted? Do they make white mounts?

I'd go with the XM too. I have it in my truc and will be putting it in the boat once it sees the water this year. The sirius units are HUGE and have alot of overheating issues.

The portable xm unit with the built in fm mod. is cool, just throw it in the cabin go All you got to do is set the antenna out somewhere. xm programing sort of sux though.

I've got the Clarion CMD4 Sirius Head Unit with a deck mount antenna and love it. Great reception. Dave

I have a Sony System that is XM ready, but i want to go Sirius cause i'm a Howard fan. And i like my Sony, so i don't want to change out my head unit. So i'm forced to go with a portable.

Raddick..... Big, Black, and Bulky.... and Capo....Are you talking about this......

I have the Clarion unit also and it works great. The picture with all of the sat. ant. mounted on the deck "YUCK", The sat. ant. shoots right thru thre glass. I mounted mine right under the deck (almost touch underside of deck) behind the head unit. Made the bracket out of starboard and screwed it to the inside of cabin wall. Works great.
