    So lets say I am going on a trip in a Rental car with Sirius for 3 weeks, can I call up Sirius and have them switch my radio over to the rental.

    Could this work with a friend's care as well?

    Why would a rental car have an inactive Sirius sub in it? It its there it should be active.

    Sirius now charges $15 a shot so it would work with your friend's car but may be costly.

    Oh I can't WAIT to see the fall out of this.

    YES GO FOR IT for the fun of the forum....otherwise I'd half ass your sub into your rental...which is strange that the thing would have a cancelled sub.

    Enterprise doesnt pay for Sirius subs in their cars. I didnt know if I could transfer subs temporarily, i think you guys misunderstood my question

    Do Enterprise rental cars even have Sirius radios? (I notice that they mostly deal with GM and Toyota.. These companies are partnered with XM and if they do have satellite capable radios, they will be XM radios. You can't transfer your Sirius account over to an XM radio.

    Even if they have vehicles that partner with Sirius (ie Ford, Dodge), Satellite radio is an option. At the factory, they install a special receiver module behind the dash or under the seat that plugs into the car's dash mounted head unit. If the option is not ordered, the module won't be there and you won't be able to activate anything.

    I use my stiletto in the rentals. Some of them have AUX ports. I normally use my home dock antenna or spare dot micro up on the dash and it normally works fine.

    I've done this exact same thing with my S2 and it works fantastic. Just plop a spare (home or car) antenna up on the dash, set your home dock on the center console, plug into the aux in port and you're good to go.

    Then you can transfer the whole setup inside when you get to your destination to listen and/or record.

    My sub is attached to my car radio. I prefer the integrated approach, i wanted to know if I could transfer subs, or add on a 6.99 for 1 month.
