Mounting the SkyFi receiver on vent in my truck?

    I have the SkyFi receiver on one of my vents in my Truck. The vent is closed. Will running the AC inmy truck harm the receiver? I will leave the vent closed that the receiver is mounted to. I can't find a specific area to use the adhesive mount.

    When I had an early model Sirius receiver, the thing ran hot, really hot. So I considered using the AC vent install for my new XM just to keep it cool. Unless you're going below 32 degrees, the temperature won't affect the unit. (Unless you let it cycle between hot, cold, hot, cold, etc. In the end I didn't want to block my AC vent.

    The other aspect is dust. But I didn't see any openings in my XM receiver.

    But if you're going to leave the vent closed, I can't believe you'll have any problem.

    Thanks. Looks like I'll leave it there for now.
