Is there a clean seamless solution to some sort of integrated Sirius for those of us without iPhones?
Will the Dynavin E46 work with an Integrated Universal Sirius Receiver?
like this one:
I'm asking because you work with other aftermarket units and I do know many Pioneer and Kenwood 2 DIN Nav Units come with their own Sirius Receiver attachment modules that either connect from under the seat or inside the trunk.
Did anyone hear if future units will be Sirius XM compatible or have Integrated Sirius Receivers?[/QUOTE]
I dont see any way that sirius could be integrated into the unit in any way without dynavin and sirus' support....and I really doubt that is going to happen, plus I dont really think that any of the dynavins hardware is configured for that kind of thing. I could be wrong but I doubt it, remember sat radio is a US product and dynavin isnt very .....knowlegable....about the US market. Your best bet is to just get a external tuner and do a nice clean ashtray install and run it into the aux in.
The SSC1 unit that you noted above is in fact the one that I now use with all the pioneer head units but it requires the use of a separate interface to adapt from the SSC1's plug to the pioneer Pbus system. Pioneer used to make their own tuners but a few years ago sirius pretty much stopped supporting any aftermarket tuners and "simplified" things by bringing it all "in house," making all the tuners the same, then it was up to the head unit manufactures to figure out how to make it work. I also am using the SSC1 in my lexus, it is connected through a OEM->sat radio interface as well and works very nicely with the factory nav system BUT the radio is already set up for it, it had XM stock so it is basicly a XM > Sirius translator. These type of systems require both an audio connection, a data connection, and a control connection. The dynavin does not have this so I dont think it is possible.
I had a "sirius one" before I canned it for the iphone streaming apps. It is very basic but it works, there are only a couple of sirius tuners these days. Check them out and see what you think.and what aabout those of us with Blackberry's or other phones? iPhone's just don't work in my area and I just want the basic Sirius feed... No luck for us?
Does anyone know of any slimline, good outboard Sirius or XM recievers that you could hide in the ashtray and just run thru an aux in?
Cant help you there, I seem to remember someone bringing this up in one of the other monster threads.....dont remember if anything came of it.Any chance you could get a hold of an external hard drive and see if itll detect it through the usb port?
A sirius usb link! Didnt know that existed. i stand corrected! Looks like it might be possible after all. Come on computer geniuses, make it happen.I could see sirius support through the Windows CE interface, basically you would need the wince patch from this guy: http://www.flydigital.ro/wince/
then you'd need some sort of USB like this: Link
Plug that into a S50 - Sirius Receiver and that might work.
or have a look at this page: http://www.rush2112.net/
So long as you can get Windows to see the device you can make it happen.
this is correct, im talking about the limitations of bluetooth not the dynavin.He's not saying the Dynavins bluetooth is not good....just bluetooth in general isn't good quality for music. Most will never tell but to an audiophile like Jeff, it makes all the difference.
Yeah, but jeff, do you think this will provide the ability to have all of the sirius channel, song, artist, etc information on the Dynavin screen? If not, why not just plug an S50 into an aux jack since you'll have to have the unit accessible anyway?A sirius usb link! Didnt know that existed. i stand corrected!

I still don't even have a unit yet anyway, I'm just trying to gather all of my facts beforehand... lol.
BTW, jeff, where did you get your unit? Did you mention in your original write up? w/o starting an entire new thread, I've just read some of the bad press on dabears? just wondering...
Yes, anti glare films have been discussed on other threads (the picture thread in particular), the jury is still out on their effectiveness....Very nice write up! :thumbsup:
Have you considered putting anti glare film on the display? Here are some that I found:
I hope this helps.
You can do this only if you have a windows interface to the tuner device. So if there's some windows app that lets you play satellite radio it will work on the Dynavin screen.Yeah, but jeff, do you think this will provide the ability to have all of the sirius channel, song, artist, etc information on the Dynavin screen?
You could hook up a hard disk to the usb port, but there might be some power issues. I don't think these ports put out the same power as a full PC would, enough to power the HD by itself. If you had an externally powered drive it would work just fine.Any chance you could get a hold of an external hard drive and see if itll detect it through the usb port?
