I just received an email from Sirius telling me I have to "optimize" the FM Transmitters on my Starmate receivers. One of the options is a professionally installed FM direct adapter. Is anyone familiar with or pursued this option?
This is the Sirius FMDA25 (Sirius FM Direct Wired Adapter)I bought a kit from Crutchfield.com to direct connect my Sirius tuner to my car radio. The antenna relay essentially has 2 inputs, one for the normal antenna and the second is from the Sirius tuner. It has one output that goes in the back of the radio where you remove the am/fm antenna. When you turn on the Sirius receiver it switches from the am/fm antenna to the Sirius tuner. I recommend it highly. It beats the heck out of the FM transmitter built into the unit.
