Clarion users will soon have another have another choice for satellite radio providers. Clarion is releasing an XM Satellite Radio receiver unit for their satellite ready units. The roll out should start mid march..

Your kidding. I just got my shipment from you yesterday. You need a Clarion CMD5 w/Sirius back to trade for a Clarion CMD5 w/XM?

I have had Sirius and wanted the CMD5 head unit with xm, but XM was not an option. Getting the Garmin 4212 with XM weather so together they should make life easier.

Why don't they just make the head unit compatible with both?

The CMD5 will use either the Sirius unit or the XM unit. The info was faxed to us by Clarion late Friday afternoon, I had no prior knowledge of this change.

Mike,
I spoke to Clarion to inquire further. As you indicated the CMD5 is capable of receiving both XM and Sirius. If I understood them correctly, Clarion has a new XM receiver box just like the Sirius version to receive the signal and transmit data to the CMD5(song titles, stations, etc).

I inquired about using the Garmin 30A black box and the Clarion rep said I could use it, but that the CMD5 would not display the station, song, artist information, etc on the CMD5 display.

with all that said, I will just keep my separate XM weather and Sirius radio and have the Garmin XM as and "emergency" backup
