Default XM App

Get a Bluetooth speaker (home goods $20) and connect your cell phone to it. Use the xm app. Have not had any problems in 8 months of using it.

Hello.We have SiriusXM in our cars. Because we are subscribers, we were able to download the app on our phones.
Now, I just bluetooth SiriusXM through the radio, on my cart. It works great.
Also, we use Pandora and bluetooth that, through the radio.

Waterproof bluetooth speaker from Amazon for $30. App on the iphone from SiriusXM for free as I have a subscription for the car, charger for iphone already in cart and I just velcro the speaker to the top front so I can remove it to charge the speaker battery once in a while and it works great. $30 solution. Battery in speaker lasts 24 hours of use and speaker is only 5 inches long but the sound is excellent.

Does playing the radio kill the smart phone battery that much quicker? Can you can still make and receive calls while playing music? I don't have a smart phone, so I don't know anything about them.

Playing Sirius, Pandora or any other app that plays music has no noticeable extra usage on the Smart Phone Battery.

I do like the clean looking installation of the radio rapped in carpeting but think I'll stick with One of the Bose Speakers we have. Makes your Cart possibly less of a target not having a stereo exposed. Haven't really heard of a rash of stereo thefts but just thinking ahead.

The biggest thing is there is almost no interruption of the signal when you are streaming and you can't beat the sound.
