    XM And GPS Problem?

    Yo guys,

    I am thinking of putting my XM receiver and my GPS receiver by the rear window? Will both interfere with each other?

    My Rikaline GPS Receiver and Xm Direct Antenna are 2 inches apart and I have no problem whatsoever.

    Hope this helps.......

    I've had no problems with my antennas touching each other on my trunk. I found my GPS worked a lot better outside the car then it did under the front windshield.

    Unlikely, but possible depending on quality of the products. Both are receivers and not transmitters so they should not give off a lot of EMI.

    There is a problem with GPS and the Roady line of XM receivers....


    The original Roady 1 generates a literal ****load of EMI around the same frequency range as GPS. Any GPS receiver within 8 or so feet of a Roady will usually not be able to pick up a single satellite.

    The problem was solved in later revisions of the Roady, and does not exist in the Roady 2. If you have a Roady with this problem call Delphi and they will swap it with a newer, fixed Roady.
