OK,I am wondering if anyone out these has the definitive answer about changing the XM brains in the new Camaro to a Sirius brain. I have a Sirius lifetime subscription because of Howard Stern, but I ordered my 2SS despite the XM standard. You would think that since the merger they would make it optional which you wanted in your Camaro, but no. I'm not sure the antennas are cross-compatible... does anyone know the truth about this? Please help!

You can get Howard through the XM Receiver with the "Best of Sirius" Package.

Only $2 per month and no screwing with the radio! :thumbup:

Yeah, but he'd have to pay for a new XM base fee and not be able to add the XM unit as a reduced cost second unit on his Sirius account.

yeah i got this problem to. theres no way i am going to mount my sirius radio the way it is in my blazer right now velcroed to the dashboard. and i inquired about the subscription thing to and they said we are merged but we cant do anything with changing you over. i want to find a way to get my radio into my camaro when it arrives but i dont know how i will do it

joepitt 05-24-2009 07:17 PM

Have you called and asked if they can move the subscription now that they are the same company?

mbauer14085RS/SS2010 05-24-2009 07:40 PM

yeah tried that they said they are merged but still seperate entities if that makes any sense. it was bad enough i think i was talking to some guy in india and couldnt understand a word he said.

Xmicro_SS 05-24-2009 08:23 PM

Yea, unfortunately you need to pay for a base XM subscription, and add the $2 Best of Sirius. But at least you do not have to screw around with the radio. This is what I am going to do. :thumbsup:

mbauer14085RS/SS2010 05-24-2009 08:25 PM

yeah it just sucks that i already have a subscription and a radio.

I'll be happy if I can get Octane, Faction, Lithium and Alt Nation with XM.
I miss Hard Attack...

I questioned this a while ago and was told no because this radio uses a new system of some sort, and I don't believe sirius/XM is going to bother creating a convertor box.

Faction is amazing! Good music and the Jason Ellis show! RED DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!

Hemlawk 05-26-2009 03:34 PM

I had Sirius a few years ago but don't use it anymore. I was just driving my bros truck a few days ago with Sirius. I realised how much I miss it and I'll be reinstalling it again shortly.

At the Camaro event in Grapevine, I asked the XM rep if I could switch my Sirius account over to an XM radio and she told me that it wouldn't be a problem. Maybe she didn't have all the facts.

Not well-versed on car audio hookups and such, but would this little guy do the trick? http://shop.sirius.com/edealinv/serv...70&cid=SIR-GM1

Already asked a while ago and was told no....

I have 2 sirius radio subscriptions. I guess i'm going to have to go the other way and get a XM radio for my Truck, I really dont want to pay two base fees. I guess once my 3 Months is over ill be totally switching to XM.

I hate XM, but i guess its not so bad since they merged. My mother had XM in her 08 Tahoe (RIP) pre-merger and i couldnt stand it. I still dont like it, but at least XM has Octane and NHL Home Ice.
