Does anyone know where they mounted the Sirius module for the 6 disc "premium" radio? I imagine it's separate from the radio because I don't think Canada gets the option and I doubt MMNA would make completely separate radios. I would like to disconnect and hopefully remove the sirius station selections from my radio display. The new FUSE system is Fantastic IMO and I use the bluetooth audio streaming to stream Pandora and Sprint Radio right from my phone. Playing music on my phone, getting in and turning the key, my music is piped through the stereo. I can even change the song selection from the radio buttons. But those 4 sirius station menus are annoying to thumb past. Is there any way to disable Sirius?

Just purchased a 2010 Outlander, so far so good with one exception. The radio reception is HORRBLE, we are only able to get 3- 4 FM stations in any location. I'd be interested to know if anyone else is experiencing this.
I did check the owners manual and made a small adjustment to the roof antenna but I don' think it's going to help.
Thanks in advance !

Are you wanting the nav system that Mitsu sold in the 2008 Outlander or are you wanting a 3rd party unit? For a 3rd party unit, start at Crutchfield.com.
I don't know the '08 Outlander as I have a 2010. But in th e'10 the nav unit has a different instrument panel since most controls were consolidated into the screen. I'm not sure what implications that would have for going from a non-nav setup to one with nav.

AM & FM reception in my '10 GT has been fine. Not particularly different than the car it replaced. I'm in the Chicago suburbs and I get the powerful city radio stations with no problems. The suburban station I listen to most often can be received just fine most of the way into the city, which is basically how the old car was.
That said, most often I'm using satellite or the music server.
My suggestions would be to keep fiddling with the antenna (try cleaning the contacts where it screws in as well) and to, if they're close by, try to do a side-by-side with another Outlander on the dealer's lot to see if it's unique to your stereo or not. If your stereo won't receive a station when the car next to it does, you'd have the beginnings of a case to get the head unit and/or antenna replaced should it prove necessary.

Good advice, thanks. I'll start with the antenna.

The FM reception in our '07 Outlander isn't very good, either. Haven't tried to do anything about it, we use the Sirius or listen to CD's.

For whatever reason, the dealer didn't install the antenna, the "plug" was left from the factory. Needless to say, it is working fine now.
Many thanks, fushigi, for your advice. It pointed me in the right direction.
