    My XM radio has quit working on my GPS. I'm not sure if the problem is with my antennae or the GPS unit itself. I was hoping there might be someone in the Madison area with an XM antennae that would be willing to meet up with me somewhere. Basically I'm just looking to hook another antennae up to my GPS or my antennae to another GPS so I can pinpoint where the problem is. Any afternoon after 5 pm is good for me.

    Thanks for the help.

    What type of connector does it use? I don't have XM on my GPS, but I have a XM SkiFi system that I no longer use (and was going to sell).:spam I don't know if the antennas might have the same connector or not. if so, I can meet up with you sometime and see...

    it looks about like this:

    I live in Madison and have a Zumo 550 with the XM antenna.
    If you think it will work or just want to look give me a shout

    BW, thanks for the reply, but I need a different model (GXM 30).

    Pappy the one on your Zumo should fit. I'll pm you my contact info.



    Thanks!!

    Have you been using your XM recently? Sometimes I don't use one of mine for several months and then have to call XM and have them "refresh" the signal.
