On the newer models, Magnadyne put the update card in the front sd slot.

no idea...Magnadyne just started shipping them that way a few months back.

Same model number...it was just some sort of running change. If you contact them, maybe that's an option on existing radios too? It does take up your SD slot...but frankly I haven't used an SD slot for music since the first of never.

Pulling Radio from Dash for XM

Does anybody have any idea how the radio comes out of the dash? I have a 2014 Solera I want to install XM in and the two U shaped tools dont hold even by pressing outward per the instructions. Any help would be appreciated.

Mine was secured in place by tie wraps on the back. It requires careful disassembly of the dash and trim pieces around the radio.

That's what I thought the issue might be. Don't know why they would have done that as there is no way to get behing the dash. I was looking at Amazon and they had a reciever that I think you could plug into the audio in the front of the magandyne should play thru the speakers. It was only 39 dollars for everything so I might try that. Thanks so much for your help. Have a great week.

I've also seen Sirius/XM receivers that have Bluetooth capability. I know the Magnadyne works GREAT with the iPhone Bluetooth - works pretty seamlessly. You might shop around for a Sirius/XM with Bluetooth! But it's really no problem removing that radio from the dash - shouldn't take more than 10 minutes (if you don't misplace screws like I do!). Makes for a cleaner dash, etc., and the Sirius/XM receiver is much less expensive.

My radio was nearly impossible to remove but I ultimately solved the problem (not easy) and successfully installed the Sirius radio. Your unit may have the same cause as mine. You may contact me for details if you wish at 8024822933 or bcunning@gmavt.net.

BTW - the tie wraps on the back of mine were apparently added (jerry-rigged) to support the weight of the radio in the black plastic fixture surrounding the radio box. If correctly installed, the radio should have easily slid out of that plastic fixture using the removal tools.
