Nothing special, except most car setups aren't waterproof. The Garmin Zumo 550 is an XM receiver as well a gps.

I had a Delphi SkyFiII setup with a waterproof case before I got the Zumo.

I have the set up in my ford truck and if i can use the same docking station and antenna, i can swap out the receiver ad only pay one premium. The car mounts will work cause i investigated it.
I just wanted to ask someone more knowledgeable before i acted.
Thank you very much for your input.

Yeah, just buy another docking station and antenna and you'll be in business. 1800 already has the AUX input, so should be an easy hook up.

Get it hooked up and you'll have some TRAVELING music!

Daniel, I use the same reciever in my car, motorhome, and my Wing. Just bought a Ram mount for the bike and carry a sandwich baggie in the left faring pocket that I can slide over the radio if I'm caught in the rain. Works very well.

No more "maybe tomorrow" Do It!

I have XM with docking station on left side connected thru the axillary plug. I have a one gallon plastic bag in the left fairing pocket and a good strong elastic to slide over the bag when I need it.The gallon bag is a bit large but when it starts to rain the size of the bag makes it easy to slip over the radio and the mount. As KC604 stater, it works very well.

I have a 1500, but the FREE radio from XM workd well. If you don't have the aux port you can either run on and empty FM station or use the cassette player adapter. Works well and can be easly transported to another vehicle.

Same setup here,mounted the antenna with velcro on dash of the bikeinside the windshield so it stays dry out of harms way,plastic ziplock bag for rainy days,same receiver in Truck,Bike,and two boats each one having there own permanent antennas and 12v power cables...plug and play the receiver one activation bill.

what's this about a FREE radio channel on XM ??

I have never signed up for XM even though my Garmin 2730 has that capability.
