I received a 545s, G2 Vision Card along with the GXM31 antenna as a gift. I have a question regarding the GXM31 antenna. It seems the adapter cable for the antenna also has the red and white RCA style plugs for the audio output.

What would I need to be able to listen to XM radio on the boat other than speakers?

Would I need some type of amp?

Anyone else have this setup?

You need a marine stereo with aux input for this to work. And after much trial and error I can tell you the one of the front than an standard Ipod works on will not work with this particular setup. Only the ones with the aux input with the red and white RCA jacks.

The GDL 30/30A for the larger Garmins work on both types of input. Not the GXM31.

I went round and round with Garmin on this and finally found the correct combination. It also didn't help that the 1st Garmin 540 had a defective XM audio port.

Now with the correct setup the system works great and my very patient client loves it.
