SiriusXM -- VX7020A & JWM6A

I am receiving SiriusXM on my VX7020A dash mounted radio, it works fine. How can play SiriusXM through the JWM6A entertainment system? I've tried using the Mode/Display button on the entertainment system to cycle through the input sources, but nothing seems to play SiriusXM. This is a 2017 Forest River, Forester MBS 2401W. Thank You.

I have the mobile app for Serius, and use the Bluetooth input on the JWM6A to listen to Serius in the back. The problem with this solution is that it uses some of my precious cellular data. Figuring out how to get the Bluetooth to work on that unit was a real chore for me... The instructions were pretty opaque. If you need help, I am near my "W" this weekend, and can probably do a memory recall exercise to figure out how I made it work 4 months ago.

I uspect there is a hard wire solution to output to the JWM6A. Has anyone done this?

I would like to avoid using the mobile app for the reason you mentioned. But, I appreciate your offer of assistance.

Unless anyone has another solution, I may have to remove both the radio and the entertainment system to look for jacks.

Thank You...

Huh...my 15 yr old had that bluetooth set up in 2 minutes...I should've watched

The coach audio does not have Sirius capability, so the only option is to bluetooth it or buy a separate Sirus unit to connect to it, something like this...and of course pay the extra radio monthly cost...

Yes on the Onyx unit,we had that in our RV,but "Witch Doctor" told us to also buy the "Docking Station" for it also! Best advice we ever had for a Sound system! That Little Onyx Docking system sounds 100% Better than our Bose$$ system! Youroo!!

similar challenge with Jensen in 3010DS

My Sunseeker 3010DS with Jensen in the dash does a fine job of sending SeriusXM audio throughout the vehicle speaker system. However, I am looking for a solution that would permit me late at night to listen in the back bedroom, through headphones with no sound bothering family in the front? Can a more tech-savvy Forum-member give me a tip? Thanks in advance!

purchased a Sirus radio kit (free if you take it for 2 years) Installed it in our car using the "AUX" option ...Purchased a auto kit and installed it in our truck(TV) Now we just move the radio between the two vehicles...Just one monthly fee....Will purchase a "home" kit or another auto kit and will install it in our 5er 29RE--CC......Camping all month at a CG--Fishing and clam digging here in Nova Scotia Canada J

I have struggled with that exact thing without success.
Pairing my phone with the JWM6A was easy but paying for data usage with the Sirius app can be painful doing it this way, especially when traveling internationally.
I'm still on the 3 month free trial with Sirius but doubt I will renew my subscription because of this issue.
I, too, hope a techie comes forward explaining how to pair the VX7020A head unit with the JWM6A in order to listen to Sirius broadcasts through the latter.

You could always do like I have done. load a few 4 gig flash drives with MP3's and have all the music your heart desires. You can put about 500 songs on a 4 gig flash drive.
