CAN'T USE MY SATELLITE RADIO - ACK

I have a portable Delphi XM car radio that I have used in my truck with no problems. You simply dial the vehicle FM radio to one of a dozen frequencies to find one that doesn't have a local station broadcasting at that frequency, select that frequency on the XM radio, and ta-ta. You're all set. The XM radio sends out the radio signals to your vehicle's radio on the locally unused frequency. It's worked great for years in the truck.

The new Jag radio, however, doesn't have any option to tune in specific frequencies. All you can do is scan for stations that are actually broadcasting good, strong signals - which is exactly the opposite of what I need.

How can I use the Xm in the Jag?

Use the seek to get a weak station? Not scan, but seek. I would have figured Jag to have a factory Sat radio option? If your sat radio has USB cable hook into the auxiliary center.
The iPod and USB connectivity allows audio files on portable media players and mass storage devices (i.e. portable audio devices) to be played through the speakers of the audio system. The audio system supports portable audio devices with a storage capacity up to 256 GB (approximately 65,000 music tracks). The iPod and USB connectivity is provided by:  An auxiliary input panel, installed in the cubby box of the floor console.  An auxiliary USB unit, attached to the RH rear quarter panel, behind the trim of the luggage compartment. The auxiliary input panel provides the interface between the portable audio device and the vehicle's audio system. An iPod port and a USB port are located in the top of the auxiliary input panel, underneath a protective rubber cover. An iPod connector lead is supplied with the vehicle. Portable audio devices can be connected to both ports at the same time. The iPod and USB ports both incorporate a charging function. The maximum charging current supplied is 500 ma.
