    I have a 2007 Saturn ION that I have been very happy with and I now
    wish I included the XM Radio with its purchase. My questions and
    dilemmas are as follows;

    1) As my 2007 Saturn did not have XM Radio when I bought it, is there
    a way to activate/install/buy a XM Radio that I can use the Factory
    Installed Radio.

    I would even consider replacing the current Factory Installed Stereo
    to another Factory Installed Saturn ION XM Radio Unit if that is
    possibility. Does anyone know where the XM receiver is located in the
    car? Is it part of the Stereo or is it a seperate receiver somewhere
    in the car?

    2) I would also like to have XM radio in my house to listen through my
    home stereo and would like, if possible, to have a portable unit for
    hikes etc.

    The big issue is cost of the different receivers and subscriptions for
    each. What have others done? Has anyone used a portable unit and tied
    it in through the auxillary ports in the car stereo head unit?

    Just looking for ideas or suggestions.

    These guys specialize in wiring harnesses like that - http://www.autotoys.com

    You might alternately find a suitable XM Saturn factory unit at a
    wrecking yard, but don't forget that these radios are electronically
    paired to the BCM - you would need to get a dealer to reprogram the
    car to work with the new unit.
