▀▄ eas | XM Satellite Radio now available for your BMW!

Satellite Radio fans rejoice - you now have a choice of Satellite providers!

Satellite Radio is the radio of the future. In the past, BMW has restricted owners to only Sirius in their vehicle - this is not the case any longer. XM features over 160 digital channels - The Most Commercial-Free Music in Satellite Radio, over 30 channels of news, sports, talk and entertainment, over 20 dedicated channels of XM Instant Traffic & Weather, and the deepest playlist in the industry with access to over 2 million titles!



mObridge is proud to bring you the first ever after-market XM Radio kit for seamless XM integration with your BMW or MINI factory radio.

Combined with our popular iPod functionality (sold seperately), mObridge XM is the most advanced audio addition for your vehicle.



Our XM Direct lets you use your factory radio display and controls to listen to XM with no need for a separate receiver mounted on your dash. The hide-away tuner box integrates seamlessly with your factory BMW audio system and can be hidden out of sight for a factory-like appearance. Kit includes XMDirect receiver, low-profile roof antenna and our BMW-specific interface that makes the kit plug and play.

XM Direct Features
- Full XM Channel Browsing

We prefer to use the OEM-installed sharkfin instead. Makes for a clean OEM like appearance and plugs in directly to the XM module.

Does the sharkfin have an extra module for xm antenna or do they use the same one? Sorry for asking a silly question.

Both Sirius and XM connectors are the same, you would use this connector for XM.

You will be prewired, it's essentially Plug and Play (stock sharkfin antenna can be used).

The system emulates a working Sirius receiver in the background, with XM features to the end user.

You will need a subscription from XM once the receiver is activated from BMW or your local independent with an autologic programmer.

So can you have XM and Sirius working the same time? Full integration. Can you opt for one account or do you have 2 separate accounts
