Is there a way for Sat radio to play in coach?

Forester 3171... Has the Jensen touchscreen radio with Sirius and Nav. I have the Sirius subscription, but it only plays on the cab radio? Is there anyway I can have it play on the big coach radio and be able to use it with the outdoor speakers?

You would probably have to use the app in that situation or run an output from the radio to the aux input of the Jensen wall mount.

Ok, bummer. So essentially there is not a good way to use the radio in the cab for Sat radio in the coach. I don't like the idea of running the key in accessory for a while either. Thanks for the reply.

I got myself a sirius unit that plugs into the cab radio while driving. Then I bought additional docking station and move it to the coach radio when we're parked.

That's kinda what I'm leaning towards. Transfer the subscription to a portable device like your talking about.

Although a few hoops to get sirius in the coach area the separate coach radio simplifies and enhances everything and in my opinion is one of the better upgrades FR has made recently. Running the coach radio and TV and dvd etc through the cab radio was ridiculous

I use one portable Sirius radio with 3 separate mobile docking stations: my SUV for daily driving, my truck for towing, and my TT when camping. One subscription, three mobile applications. I can also plug it into a home docking station if I want to use it in the house or on the patio.

I bought a bluetooth adapter that plugs into the RV stereo. (If your stereo already has bluetooth, skip this step.) Then I use the mobile Sirius app on my phone to listen to any station I want. Works great!
