I've been thinking about adding this to my truck as a 2nd subscription (I have an Alpine head unit in my car), and was wondering how people's experience w/these has been? I don't want to go the install route w/this vehicle, so I'm looking at the Roady2. Any idea if the antenna would work if placed on the dashboard, instead of mounted on the roof? My GPS PDA has a sat antenna (that looks similar to an XM antenna) and works fine on the dashboard -- so I was wondering if the XM antenna would work similarly. How does the FM Modulator work? Any complaints/problems? Thanks, Mike

The antenna works fine on the dash. The FM modulator works but does not sound anywhere near as good as the direction connection. I use a direct connection into my Alpine 9815, but for a 1/2 hour trip I tried the modulator. The bass was much weaker as was the treble.
