On June 4th you received a question about connecting a portable satellite radio so that it could be readily hooked up and removed from the car radio.I have an XM Roady XT made by Delphi. It comes with a cradle that contains an FM transmitter and connections for power from the cigarette lighter socket and for a remote antenna. I had the CD storage try immediately below the car radio removed and the utility tray installed. The Roady lays in that tray very nicely, it is directly next to the lighter socket, and the antenna can be placed on the dashboard just above.Unlike my experience with iPod transmitters, the satellite radio transmitter does an excellent job of broadcasting to an "empty' FM frequency. Of course, I drive a cab and didn't buy the car to listen to the radio, but this solution is very simple and works well.
