XM Radio


Recommended Posts

I pick up my new R12RT tomorrow, and it has the radio prep kit. What do I need in order to install a Delphi SKYFi2 XM radio? I would like to get power via the bike without using the cigarette lighter attachment. Any suggestions?

Power becomes problematic - you have to use the 6v adaptor provided with the unit, so in short term you'd be better off going with the BMW/Cigarette adapter and then finding a good non-looped connection for a more permanent power source.


Several online vendors have 12/6v hardwire solutions out there, but I usually just pick up a project enclosure and pull the guts out of the cigarette adaptor. Have to solder in some feed wires, then off you go.


Advice: get a Hoon RoadyHolder and suitable RAM mount.
