Wish I could, but we can barely make phone calls our cell service is a joke where we are.I did'n like any radio in my equipment for a long time , so I ordered without .
Instead I bought kenwood radio' for around $150 and installed them .
Lately I bought new kenwood without cdplayer for $-120 + $100 speakers and built my own "boombox"
Since I m online with phone anytime I use "spotify music" or "tuneln radio" or itunes .
Im with him. I have had satellite radio in the past (since its inception) but made the switch to using a data plan on my phone instead of payin 10/month for satellite. Sound quality is alot better and I get a better selection of programming minus a handful of channels that are satellite only. If you turn the GPS locator on in your phone you can pull in a better signal if you have not so good service. Just get you a 10$ fm modulator at walmart and a pair of AAA batteries plug it in to your headphone jack on the phone and you will be in bidness.Since I m online with phone anytime I use "spotify music" or "tuneln radio" or itunes .
Did you adjust yours, or does it work fine? It might just be my locationYeah, no way I could spends month after month streaming music while I harvest, I'd have like a gazillion $$$$ phone bill. Absolutely love the XM in the combine and 8R. No reception issues ever traveling from KS to ND this year. Perhaps if you are way north reception could be a problem. The antenna for the XM is actually quite large on the combine, more so that most portable units, and I would think is pretty strong. I had the roof off to add more HIDs, on the right front corner you can see the black XM antenna, and bellow the white antenna for JDLink. The built in unit is pretty sweat to use with the controls on the touch screen/arm rest and the auto-mute for phone calls, plus the sound quality is much better than an FM modulator. The sound system in this cab is one of my favorite parts, not many ag cabs have tweeters, midrange and a subwoofer in them.
In my case I believe the problem is when I am going in west and northwest directions the antennae looses contact with the satellite because the tank extensions block the line of sight. Moving it forward like the above pictures would certainly help, will look into that before moving it out onto mirror. I am quite certain I have no issues with failing electronics because as long as I go any other direction than the ones stated it works perfectly.Moving the antenna out of the roof is not the answer...clearly you have an issue with a failing component. How is one or two feet to the side going to be any different. And I can tell you now there is not enough extra wiring to move it, I looked closely at how it's wired up when I had my roof off (was curious). Besides, tons of people have no issues at all, even your tractor works. DTAC time....
