    Question what radio component do you recommend for RR?

    i'm excited about my MIC -mobile info center. i purchased the harness to connect the MIC directly to my car factory audio but now i'm gonna need a tuner to intergrate into RR.

    i have been considering Radiator since it's gotten great reviews. but i do welcome other suggestions especially if there is a unit out there that marries well with RR.

    so you know, i'm using blue-devil skin provided by JohnWPB.

    Currently, the only real viable solution is the HQCT. Radiator sucks, USB Radios suck.

    Radio Alternatives

    I am using a Radio Shark, that is now natively supported in Road Runner. I got it as it was cheap ($29 on sale at Best Buy) and easy to get working, as I do not use the radio that often, but wanted it for occasional use. I have an external antennae connected to it, and it picks up as well as my head unit does. With the time shifting and recording abilities, that is a really nice add on

    NOW the BAD news that will cinch the deal for most people. NO RDS support. But for me this is fine, as I mentioned I seldom use the radio. I use XM most of the time when not listening to MP3's.

    AfterDigital, wow that looks nice! What skin did you say that was again?

    really if you want good radio in the US, go with SIRIUS or XM. FM blows.. in any case, if you want to have a "complete" setup, then I'd recommend the HQCT as my favorite one (Cinergy 600) is no longer available.
