I just purchased the x490bs car stereo with SiriusXM adapter.When I listen to my iPod it displays the images of album or song but when on SiriusXM it does not display any images. Just the SiriusXM logo.My question is can I change this. Why would this be. On my other SiriusXM product the images are displayed.Thanks

When listening to radio stations, the image information comes from the broadcaster.

Are you listening to the same radio station on both products?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No. My iPod has its own images related to the music. SiriusXM just must not be providing images to my stereo.
Car Electronics Technician: ElectronicsPete, Electronic Engineer replied 10 months ago

Not all radio stations will provide the images.
