I think its the US equivalent of DAB radio....but its $10 per month sub,$7 as an add on to my sons sub.
FM modulated to radio,however much better quality to wire in direct to radio-tough with SLK US radios-no aux input.

RE: XM SkyFi2 ...more

so,today I popped out the radio(nailfile) and found a switched 12v and an on all time wire.
I went for the switched supply,tapped in and ran it rthrough into the glovebox.Now both antenna and power are in the glovebox.I've got a nice looking install,very easy.Adrian
Note in picture how small the antenna is,on the dash (black bump)
