Summary: I bought this for the base and antenna. If my receiver craps out I will have a spare. I use this unit in my truck, my camper and in the house. The music channels are great to switch to during commercials on the tv. The fm output is useless because the fm radio band is so crowded so if you use this setup you need direct coupling to a sound source. I changed the radio in my truck to one with an audio input.
Nice XM radio. Very nice Display and button arrangements

Summary: Used for a week and so far it has worked spot on. Went with the optional FM modulator and it is 100% better than finding a FM setting as you travel. The Con with this unit it has no AUX 3.5mm out to go to the Aux 3.5 mm in on your system. It has the 3.5 mm jacks out to the In RCA in jacks.Old system. Not for most newer decks. I like the way it's easy to change channels and you can see the display very easy without taking your eyes off the road for very long.
Summary: Great little unit if it would work properly ALL the time...it has a mind of its own. I am not referring to the satellite service itself..the actual unit screen itself will just black out. The display will be completely different of what is actually playing and then the pre-programmed channels will change and revert back on their own...it is really bizarre.
Audiovox XCS9 XM Car & Home Satellite Radio Receiver
10 December 2010
Summary: My husband and I love having the variety of so many different genres of songs. I like the 70's and 80's and he's into Outlaw Country. We take turns using the radio in our vehicles because it is detachable and interchangeable. We enjoy the all music service vs. all the sports and news events. To each his own which is why we really recommend an xm radio to all couples. The only thing I don't like is having to pay a fee each month for the satellite service.
Summary: Built-in FM modulator is the best feature of this radio. Big bright display, comes with dock and remote control. Use it anywhere you have access to an FM radio. Just wish it was a little smaller....
Summary: Satellite radio is great, and well worth the small monthly fee. I like it so much, I took the regular radio antennae off my truck. For the past 5 years, I have enjoyed this wonderful form of entertainment. When part of my old Audiovox suffered battle damage from being mounted in my dune buggy, of course I wanted another unit. Five years is a lifetime when it comes to consumer electronics. Don't think so, well, how old is the cell phone in your pocket? See what I mean?
Summary: I got this when it went for sale. It is very easy to start; the screen is pretty and I like the blue color. this unit also come with lots of function, like alarm, sleep timer, etc. serve me very well.
Pros: stylish and great screen; lots of functions;
