    I've got Sirius Satelite radio in my truck and I have the little audiovox system. I glued it is with a L lever where I guess the cup holder would be, above the radio. The only reason why I glued it in was that it is impossible to screw it into that spot. Now the glue is not holding and I'm sick of trying to glue it back in again and again :mad:. I'm just wondering what everyone else's setup is like or if anyone has a solution (tried velcro, but not strong enough). Pics would be nice.

    - Thanks Sammy

    Sammy,
    Do a search with Kurt's (brainf@rt fixed) userid (landtoy80) He posted several pics.
    His mount is kewl and I think it would be perfect for you.

    I mounted mine to the right of the 4H/4L shifter -- I used the 3M adhesive that comes with on the base of the unit -- it sticks fine -- for now --

    :)

    I've got the small XM kit. I have it mounted with 3M tape on the included swivel mount to the dash just right of the antenna switch. Used a small torch to "curve" the plastic mount to conform to the dash.

    Kurt,
    2 things.
    1. The tags go around the text.
    2. Use IrfanView to rotate your images before posting unless you like seeing everyone c0ck their heads when viewing the above. I'm deducting my chiropractor's bill from the proceeds of the bet if you win.

    >> I still have no idea how to use the dam tags <<

    Quick lesson.

    The tags go on either side of the text. The "start" tag (bracket-tag-bracket) tells the YaBB application that you want to start some moving text (in your example above.) The "end" tag (bracket-slash-tag-bracket) tells the app where the end of the moving text will be.

    Now we will demonstrate:
    [ b ][ /b ][ move ][ /move ] XM RULES

    The above command done correctly would have the text "XM RULES" in a bold font and will have it moving from right to left across the message box. In order to do this correctly you'll need to tell YaBB where to start and where to end thusly....

    Start bold: [ b ] (no spaces)
    Start move: [ move ] (no spaces)

    Text to be moved: XM Rules

    End move: [ / move ] (no spaces)
    End bold: [ / b ] (no spaces)


    Resulting in this:

    [move] Please buy Red Cranberries. [/move]

    I installed my XM in the ashtray. With the Velcro (see pics) it is easy to get in and out. It is very stable even on rough roads with the large strip of velcro attaching it to the ashtray and smaller strip just below the channel LED. I pull out he ashtray until the XM is almost vertical for eaiser reading of the display(yeah you can see the display better than on the console also)

    The radio controls you lose easy access to, are the presets I seldom change anyway( bass, treble, equalizer, etc.) You can still have 6 FM and 3 AM presets and room for other stuff on the console.
