I have it, and I love it. After spending the initial $200, it only costs me $9.99 a month. Tons of channels, great quality, 95% commercial free. The music channels are commercial free. They just added a bunch of college sports channels, so I can listen to near any big league college game that's playing. I was listening to Game 7 of the Sox v. Yankees game last night while on the road. I stuck the pod right to the dash. I'll get a pic of it and post it in a little bit.

The arrow is where my SkyFi Delphi XM Tuner is mounted. I use the cassette player and cigarette lighter to get sound and power. I mounted the antenna in the center back area of the roof, just in front of the hatch and 3rd brake light. I ran the wire under the headlining across the passenger side, behind the A-pillar, behind the glovebox, and out through the fuse panel in the passenger side foot area. It took me a while to find a good mounting material to support the weight of the tuner. I use 3M Xtreme Velcro. It's like a plastic extra strength velcro. It works best.

As far as a picture of my exact system, I'll get that this weekend when I get my digital camera back (since apparently someone neglected to mention to me about borrowing it). Hope this helps you. PM me with any questions.

Another thing: I did try the piece that wires the tuner into the FM radio on the factory stereo. Didn't like it. Quality wasn't as good. When you use the cassette port, you get great quality sound. Just like listening to a CD!! thumbsup
