Nope, you don't have XM

Big diff between XM and XM ready. You have to buy the missing part. Contact your dealer (good luck!) or better still, Georgetown directly. They should have that part in stock. Or you can get a better price online via eBay by searching for your particular radio brand/model. Usually about $200 or so. Maybe less!

Then you have to add a good antenna. The one the factory puts in is useless. Once again, find an antenna online that goes with the XM unit you buy, then find a good RV guy who does electronics and have him snake that antenna up along your windshield to the roof. Easy fix and you will get XM everywhere.

I found the tuner for $50 or less, and I bet if I call XM they will probably give me one. I will most likely try my antenna first, provided there is one.

Can't be sure about the GT'sbut the Legacy is XMReady, meaning you provide the receiver and antenna. Simple install but no good location for the antenna so reception stinks when driving north. Receiver is like $45 at Best Buy.

The xm or sirius ready radio will not open the xm or sirius channels unless the antenna/control box has been installed. It senses the signal, so if your radio does not identify the xm/sirius stations, you need to add the control box/antenna, whichever is missing.

Our GT XL came with the XM box installed. Unfortunately the antenna was stuffed up under the dashboard which prevented the XM unit from activating properly. Had to run the antenna wire up to the roof and mount the antenna near the right front of the roof. Then everything worked great.

XM Radio

I was told that there is a slot for the XM ant. in the roof but there is not, So to run the wire ..take the panel off the side of the windshield, run the wire up into the cabinet and the through the roof. You may have cut a hole for the wire if you can't find a hole for the wire. It does require a metal plate for the ant. to sit on.

Well we had a similar issue with our 2014 377xl. The ant was stuffed up behind the dash unit tie wrapped in a neat ball. I returned the unit to the dealer and they installed it correctly. Our ant sits on the dash center. Hope this helps. Good luck!
