Why is the antenna shown with the funky short adapter cable? Why not just terminate the cable with the appropriate connector?
Charles N on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am speaking as a user with a speculative answer. The antenna is a "standard" SXM antenna that is used with a number of their commercial car kits and receivers. The adapter cable then converts to the type of connector on the SXAR1 without creating a need for a "special" antenna. Why the receiver has a "different" connector may be a more appropriate question, but it may have been chosen to differentiate it from the external gps antenna connector.
Does anyone have experience using the Sirius aviation receiver with Foreflight on jet aircraft? Specifically the Citation Sovereign? I tried (with the receiver only, no external antenna), and could not get a good signal, and nothing would update, either in the air or on the ground. I tried placing the receiver on various parts of the glareshield with no luck, the best signal actually on the side window, likely having something to do with the forward windscreen heating elements, but not enough to update Foreflight and get any weather. Would the external antenna help? Any other experience or suggestions?

BEST ANSWER: I fly a Citation Excel. I had the same issue. I could get only a weak signal and even that was sometimes with just the receiver itself. So I bought the external antenna and as long as the external antenna was mounted to the side window. I could get a better signal, but again...not all the time. We have an external XM antenna mounted on the top of the airplane for a previous owner's purpose. So I took the jumper that comes with the external antenna kit to a cable shop and they made me a connector that would connect to the coax connection in the cockpit for the externally mounted XM antenna. The other end connects to this receiver (obviously) and it works like a charm. Without it I would not have continued to use it. It was too frustrating.
Does the SXAR1 Antenna Kit include both GPS and SXM antennas (two separate antennas)?

BEST ANSWER: No, it's just the SXM antenna. The GPS antenna is here: http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/garmin-ga-25mcx-external-antenna.html
Do you need to have the gps remote antenna if you don't plan to use this to supply firelight with gps (using stratus)? In other words, will this still work if not in line of sight using xm antenna but not gps?

BEST ANSWER: It should, but we have not tested that arrangement.
