My NBS didn't come with onstar/xm, but I am adding xm to my avic-d3. I'm trying to find a good spot to mount the xm tuner/receiver. I'd like to mount it where the factory receiver would be. Where was the factory receiver mounted? Any suggestions on a better place to mount it?

pull the glove box down, behind it is where the factory XM was mounted. I removed it on my 07 classic, and placed the pioneer receiver back there. There is like a plastic piece that sticks out, the pioneer receiver can sit in it. It's not the best, but it works without drilling holes.

Exactly, I have a thread around here somewhere showing with pics. Mine's a NNBS though, but the location is the same.

thanks litljay, I found your thread. I kinda thought that was where the factory box went, but the bracket is only there if you have factory xm, so I don't have that bracket

I wound up mounting it sideways where the factory tuner would go, with all the plugs facing toward the driver's side. I mounted the brackets that come with it & zip tied the top one to an existing wire harness. the bottom mount just sits inside the cover for the air conditioning box that is visible just under the glove box.

I put the antenna in the front corner of the passenger side dash. Anybody else done this? If so, did you mount it with some double sided tape or just let it sit there?
