Got a new 2006 Honda Odyssey last week. This is the Ex-L model with DVD and navigation. It comes with XM preinstalled, and as far as I know, there is currently no way to convert this to Sirius. I was inspired by this guy's Odyssey install - http://www.siriusbackstage.com/forum...ad.php?t=76540
- and was determined that I was going to hook my sportster up the same way. I explained it to my wife and she insisted that she did not want me opening up the dash on her brand new car (I'm not at all experienced at these kind of things, and am very prone to messing up when I try). And, she didn't want any more clutter on the dash (the Odyssey already has a lot of buttons and controls on it).
So, I decided to to a very minimal, non-intrusive installation.
First, I attached the antenna above the windshield and tucked it under the molding (where the red line is in the pic below). There's a little groove in the body and I was able to tuck it in there, then squeeze it into the rubber molding around the mirror and through the door jam.
I then ran the antenna under the glove box and stuffed it under the console and ran it in through the back of the ashtray (I call it an ashtray, it's really just a small storage area at the bottom of the console). This storage area is right below the accessory outlets, so running the power to it was easy.
When the radio is removed, the docking station and power cable tuck neatly into the storage compartment
This is down pretty low and it is hard to change the stations while driving, so I brought the remote into the car, which makes things a lot easier. I realize this is not an ideal install, but my wife wanted it very simple and unobtrusive.
Also, as mentioned in the other Odyssey post, the Sirius using it's built in FM Transmitter (no wired FM modulator) sounds a lot better than the built in XM. I'm not sure if that has to do with Sirius having better sound quality than XM, of if it's just a crappy install from Honda.
