    What setup are you using?

    XM is satellite......

    Sounds like you'e using FM modulation for some reason. I'm confused....

    Need more info!

    I know your not gonna like this answer, but get it hard wired. It makes a HUGE difference. You can get a DF TOY and have your MP3 and Sat radio hooked up.

    Zonks is right. Get rid of the FM mod. Get a DF-Toy, Metra, or some other hard wired solution. They are easy to install and the sound quality is much better. There are threads devoted solely to these devices on this forum.
