mailclerk I have the issue as well but I don't worry about it cuz as long as your out in the open you'll get it fine. Now if your signal fades in the best conditions then you do have an issue

Same problem with all XM's

I had an unattached XM that I moved from my camper van to my pickup to my wife's van and had the same problem that all here have had and that I have now with my Camaro. In fact, on the van the placement of the antenna made a big difference; going south it was fine on the dash, but going north I had to put it on the roof in order to get any reception. It is just a characteristic of the satellite position relative to the receivers position and whatever may be in the way. The frequency that the satellite transmits on is very readily absorbed by water, like in trees. I had a really bad problem when I would go from my home in NC up through the PA mountains to Watkins Glen. It is maddening and would not be quite so bad if XM would put up more satellites, but the problem will always exist to some extent due to the nature of the technology.

big-daddy I have XM in my other rides and it never goes out like it does on the Camaro, goes out anywhere near a tree. the signal level to the unit must be really low.

83Hokie My XM expires tomorrow and unless they come up with a deal it will be gone ... no issues with my regular radio that aren't the same in my other cars ... of course the one channel on XM I would like to have is in the premium package, so no real lure to re-up

Pumpkin I know it's an old thread, but does anybody know if you can add some kind of signal booster to make the signal stronger. Mine is losing the signal even with the regular fm channels, my Hhr I had xm and it only lost signal in tunnels or garage parking. This is the only thing making me mad about my camaro.
