What is the best way to DIY add satellite to my 2006 997 C2? My wife's new '11 Cayenne has satellite and now I want it.

I have Bose and CD changer but no NAV.

Thanks!

I did the same install on my 2006 C2s which has Bose, Nav and CD-Changer. I had the dealer do it and had them put the unit on top of the changer.

Be advised that due to location of the sat antenna, it can get a bit spotty with coverage. More so when trees are over the road.

Still, sure beats FM.

Other than listening to the engine via sport exhaust, the Sirius was great to have on long drives.

If cost is no object any decent stereo installer can install the correct module to interface directly with the PCM. But for $ 50 bucks or so you can get the kit with the radio interface that works by running through an unused station on the FM radio. Not as fancy but the sound isn't any worse than a regular radio station if you experiment a bit to find the best respection on the PCM and the install is simple. Power cord just plugs into the extra 12 volt receptical in the passenger foot well and the antenna wil stick to any magnetic surface. Spend as much or as little time as you want hidding the wires but even that's not that challenging. A cost effective alternative to spending a grand or so just so you can read the channel lineup on the PCM.

Anyone having issue with thier XM units? I just bought a new to me 07 TT that has this installed. It does not work 100% of the time. Sometimes I get in the car, turn on the radio, switch to XM, and then I hear nothing or it will not switch stations. I have to turn the car off completely for it to start working again.

I alway shut the radio off before turning the car off too.

Thanks,

Eric
