Just wanted to update anyone who is interested. Got the Sirius kit installed and it’s way different than having the radio. You can’t preset channels (well, you can but you have to go into different menus to locate your preset list and even then you can’t cycle through presets from your steering wheel controls) I’m so used to Sirius. I would have definitely opted for a higher trim had I known. I was told by my salesman my trim had XM. Didn’t find out until I was driving home. Then they told me it’d be months before a new palisade would come in. Then I found out trim kits were available. Now it’s too damn late to do anything. Trim kit sucks. Don’t waste your money. Huge pain in the ass.

I truly miss not having Sirius XM in the SEL trim. I checked the price of the Sirius Kit from 2 different Audio installers and they both quoted around $475 for the kit and installation. I may stick with using my iPhone.

Good afternoon,

I have some great news about how you can keep your sirrusXM radio, even though this vehicle doesn't offer it directly. Follow these instructions and you will gain access without even buying any equipment at all. Here we go, first download the sirrusXM app to your phone, I have an Android cell and hopefully this function works the same on a iPhone. Next, turn on your vehicle and press the setup button on your dashboard display, then press on (Phone Projection) next, click the (Android Auto) and make sure that the check mark is within the box, which enable this function. Next, download the (Android Auto app) to your cellphone. Make sure when downloading this app, that you accept this app access to all of the permissions it asks for in order to download the app properly. Next, after the download is completed use your USB cable that fits your cellphone and plug it into the USB output located in your cupholder storage area to the top left. You must always plug your phone into this exact USB port in order for your phone to work directly through your radio itself and allows you to use your vehicle display screen and controls on your vehicle to navigate through sirrusXM, without you using the phone itself while driving. Now you will have direct access on your vehicle display to control sirrusXM, as if it was satellite. Next, click on (Setup) and then press (Phone Projection), next click on (Enable Apple CarPlay), now re-plug your USB cable to your vehicle USB port. Bluetooth will disconnect automatically when you connect to Apple CarPlay. Next, (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto) icon will be enabled when an iPhone or Android phone is connected. Next, click on the (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto) and you will be connected. Finally, make sure that you are logged into your sirrusXM app and press on the (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto) and your sirrusXM radio will begin to play. Save your favorite sirrusXM radio stations to your sirrusXM app, this will allow your vehicle access to and display your favorite stations on your dashboard display and you can change it there, instead of using your phone. You dashboard will have the options for you to toggle up and down between channels. To go to your favorite on the dashboard, click on the arrow in the left top corner, then click (Favorites) and then click (Channels) and all of your favorites that you saved on your sirrusXM app will be displayed for your choice of desired preset station.

Pretty sure most people know this. The major difference is that, with your method, you're using your cell phone's data bucket. With a true XM satellite receiver, you don't use data. You'll also lose cell service before you lose line of sight to all satellites.

Also, did you have to post this in every single thread about Sirius/XM?

You would not lose cell service or line of site satellite. That statement is incorrect, unless you have a poor quality cell phone provider.

What he was saying is that you're more likely to not have cell service in certain areas vs loosing XM satellite signal.

Example from few weeks ago. I was driving through the Rocky Mountains. In some areas cell service was non existent so the app wouldn't work but the built in XM radio probably would have. I have Google Fi so it can get cell service from T-Mobile, Sprint or US Cellular towers

There are many areas in the country without cell service. Have you ever looked at a cell phone coverage map? Not to mention dead spots. Whereas with satellite, you have coverage almost everywhere because you’re pretty much always in line of sight (not ”site”) of a satellite.

Your method requires cell phone coverage and uses cellular data, which is not convenient for everyone.

Yes, that could occur in a situation like that. So, I guess it's best to have cell phone company that gives good reception. I'm only sharing this information to those it may benefit. I'm no expert on this and just purchased my 2020 Hyundai Palisade SE on Monday. I took it to a car radio specialist and he discovered this method for me. I'm content with it, versus getting some aftermarket device installed on my vehicle.
