Magnetic Mount

What is the simpliest XM car stereo to install?

I want to surprise my husband with a satellite stereo and want to go with XM...which stereo is the easiest to install in a car?

The simplest is probably the "Sportscaster" XM radio unit, simply because it has a very small size which makes it easier to find mounting locations. However, just about all of the portable XM radio tuners work the same way; there will be a magnetic-mount XM antenna which needs to be placed on the roof or trunk lid of the vehicle, and a power plug for the cigarette lighter.

To listen to the satellite radio through your vehicle's factory radio, you'll probably need to use either a cassette adapter (if your car is equipped with a cassette player) or the XM unit's built-in FM modulator (which is often very poor sound quality). If you don't have a cassette player or a radio with an auxiliary input, you'll want to purchase an "FM-direct adapter" for the satellite radio. This allows for better sound quality but makes the installation much more difficult in many vehicles.

You might want to consider buying at a store that offers professional installation for your satellite radio unit.
