Ya, just my nick name.
2006 Saab 9-7x w/factory navigation and SIR-GM1 tuner (replaced factory XM tuner)
Here is my OLD setup in my Crown Victoria
I am now using an XpressRC mounted with a VSM mount. I will post updated pics soon.
Wow I don't think I've ever seen a tuner on the roof of a car before. That must kill your neck and you certainly must not car about looking at the display while driving! I hope! LOL
I never look up at the radio when I am driving. The remote works excellent when I need to change channels. My reason for placing it up there was because it was hidden from view. Believe it or not, I had 2 XM radios stolen. One from my wifes car (Roady XT) and the 1st gen Commander from my car. Like I mentioned before, I installed an XpressRC with a VSM mount that is to the right of the AC/heater controls. I will post pics as soon as I can. Its looks great.
Cool unique setup. I like it.
that is soooo cool ! Nobody will steal that radio !
Thanks! But that setup is no longer in there. Just a hole and the bezel. However I am LOVING me new Xpress RC setup. I will take some shots today and do a little showing off. I have had to get in the habit of pulling the radio off the cradle when I get out.
XpressRC Crown Victoria
As promised. New pics of the setup. The radio is mounted with a VSM mount which is WONDERFUL. I was thinking of using this method of mounting on my last 2 receivers and I am sorry I didnt do this earlier. It is PERFECT. I have the swivel mount screwed to the plate and the radio cradle attached to that. Enjoy. My car isnt normally this nasty so sorry about that. And I am currently using the cigaratte adaptor for power as I wait for the 5V hardwire. I cant wait.
And I noticed that the sound coming from my XpressRC is a lot louder than my ol CommanderMT (connected via FM direct). Odd. Seems more clearer.
Very nice Jason... I like the detailed pictures, you did a very clean job on this install. SWEET!
That BADGER portable setup has to be funniest, but best, idea ever.
Bring it to parties, and everyone has cookies and snacks in tupperware, and you lay out the Sirius on the serving table. Classy... I love it.
My 97 Taurus SHO install
Here are some pics of my 1997 Taurus SHO with SL2 install. It includes a color matched, painted antenna, and is connected with a soundgate dual input aux input. And is mounted on a pro-fit mount. SBS had an install thread organized by make and model. I'd like to see that here it was very helpful. Pics comming soon of an F-150 install I did. Click the pics to see full size. Let me know what you guys think.
no1hedberg, nice setup. It looks like the SL2 will not be in the way of passenger legs.
finally a pic of my car setup
That looks great. Is that a Saab?
How did you connect the audio?
Here is pics of my setup in my 2008 Ridgeline. Note these pics are before I added my "Carputer" which added another 7 inch touchscreen to the front of the car.

hey, someone who actually has backseat TV!
I've always been kind of curious as to what the interface on the backseat TV receiver looks like, as in how it's controlled, how many channels, what the channel numbers are listed as, if it has pad data, etc etc...
Any chance of pics of the actual controller unit in action? Pretty please, Scott
The control box is hidden in the dash behind my navigation system, also back there are the FM modulator for the sirius as well.
My truck has both Sirius and XM in it.
Backseat TV has only 3 channels, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network mobile.
There are no channel numbers, just press the up and down arrows on the remote. all the other buttons on the remote do nothing.
On the console I can control the TV or put it in radio mode and listen to Sirius while the kids watch TV in back listening to the TV on their wireless headphones.
A few more pics.
