Using SiriusXM on Aria radio

We just ordered a 2019 Aria 3901 (ready mid June). Has anyone installed a Sirius receiver/antenna kit to link w/the touchscreen dash radio that the brochure says has "SiriusXM Radio Capability"? If so please list the model numbers of the kit and what Axerra radio you have. The radio company Axxera told me the current dash radio does NOT have Sirius capability but that the 2019s WILL.

I just downloaded the SiriusXM streaming app to my phone and then bluetooth it through the radio. Works great. No need for an adapter.

Sirius XM

Thanks, Outlander. Do you have unlimited data? Any idea how much data the app uses per hour?

I do have unlimited data and it worked great even on an LTE connection. The app is in the app store. Hope it works for you!

i do the same as far as the app and streaming via bluetooth. I don't have unlimited date but it doesn't use much for audio. It's video that is the data hog.

We use the portable ONYX receiver...

That way I use the ONYX at the office, in our boat, in our TOAD(Jeep) and in the RV.

Saves a ton on separate subscriptions, and I just have a built in docking station, direct power from the AXXERA radio, and a stationary antenna in the RV.

We do the same with our OnyxPlus receiver which I use in my garage too. Sat radio is great and spoils you but those subscriptions get expensive if you have too many radios to pay for.
