****SOLD*****


An XM car kit and SkyFi2 receiver, works great, installation is pretty easy.
Includes the surface mount which has two small holes where I used a pair of
screws to hold it onto my dash or you can just apply some strong adhesive
and stick it to your location of choice. Also includes a mount that will
attach nicely to air vents in the dash (not shown, never used).

The SkyFi2 includes the radio transmitter in the receiver itself so you can
tune your XM station through a single station on your existing car radio.
Also included is the cassette adapter (not shown, never used) for optimal
sound if you have a cassette player in your vehicle.

XM plan not included (contact XM to activate your account).

$30 obo
I have two sets of these, both for $40.
Shipping at cost and NOT included.

EDIT: <blah><blah><blah>snake :Þ

Many car radios come XM-ready nowadays. The reason you'd pick up a receiver like I have is if you want to port it around without paying for more receivers. For instance, you have two cars with XM-ready radios in them and you'd like to listen at home. If you use the in-car radios you'll have to fork out for 3 separate subscriptions (each car separately plus one for the house). With the SkyFi receivers you just pay for one subscription and easily port the receiver from car cradle to car cradle or to a home theater receiver cradle (called a home kit IIRC) or boombox.

The downside is that I don't think you can setup the SkyFi receivers with your steering wheel controls.

So the XM-ready radio in your car(s) is not directly compatible with the ones I'm selling here. They are two distinct, separate ways of pulling down XM. The rm is built into the SkyFi2 so its not separable, though you can turn it off using the unit's menus.

I had picked up two through a friend who worked for XM so that I had a spare backup in case one broke; never happened obviously.

Having said all that, a close friend has expressed interest in taking them from us already so these may not be available anymore. I'll update probably after this weekend on their status.
