I could do the same with my IPhone. Even save by dropping Sirius and use only Pandora.
But it is only good in areas with good Cell reception. It uses the cell towers to operate.
Traveling you may loose reception, or be set in the "Roaming" mode and cost extra money.
But if you never travel away from your Home area, it is great. I like to ride around and tour on my RG.

Smile Stratus 6

I mounted the unit with heavy duty velcro above my speedo also. I zip tied the antenna wire to my brake cable and mounted the antenna on the right side of my windshield with the velcro also. This allows me to remove both to clean the bike. It works great.

I put my Sirius radio in the left side pocket on velcro and ran the input wire to the aux through the fairing and put the antenna on the radio under the fairing as well. I dont change radio staions much but the remote works well in wifes hands lol. Im a bit cheap lol.

I just bought the Alpine 149BT which is Sirius XM ready, so I bought a Sirius XM kit, I have two amps mounted on my radio so I don't know if there will be any room left for the antenna, I guess I'll find out soon, I'm just wondering if anybody has mounted that little antenna anywhere else. I have seen a "motorcycle" kit, but I definetly don't plan to use that kind of antenna if I can avoid it.

2010 FLTRX, Custom paint, 107 CI, TS Bags, CM Fury 21" Wheel, too many other extra's to list.

Cool! I've been thinking about putting a Sirius Onyx in one of the gloveboxes. I don't recall seeing an AUX input hanging, how did you wire the Sirius to the head unit? Do you think it would work to mount the antenna above the headlights?
