Looking at the one they had last year, it seems to be about a $1200 unit and the Soundstream is under $200 on Amazon...

Jayco said they had to switch because of how generous their warranty is so they have to be mindful of warranty claims. I'm guessing dropping down to the Soundstream isn't going to go well for them.

Mine does the exact same thing with the GPS lag and I agree, unusable.

Is anyone else having trouble connecting their iPhone? The only thing I found online states that it isn't iPhone compatible. How can this be?!

Also it is supposed to have Sirius XM and ours says "check tuner". We got a card for a free 3 month trial and called Sirius and they said someone installed the tuner wrong, but the product info on Amazon shows that you have to buy a separate XM tuner for $40 -- if Jayco installed this unit and skimped on the $40 tuner to make it Sirius capable after already dropping down to such an inferior unit, I'm going to be even more disappointed in choosing a 2019.

Adding it to the list of other problems so we can hopefully just take it in for 1 big repair list since our nearest repair place is about a 3h roundtrip.

a1i50n …. as far as I know, Jayco does not include the SiriusXM module for the radio. My 2018 26x with the Garmin Fusion does not include it, but is compatible. Most aftermarket systems are SiriusXM compatible and do not include the tuner.

I am an SiriusXM subscriber and have the internet streaming option on my account. I just connect my iPhone to the radio via Bluetooth and stream SiriusXM while traveling & camping ……

The Garmin Fusion Jayco offered last year had the same issue when it was released. It was the initial release to the RV market for these two companies. Garmin and Fusion have worked together for years on products for the boating industry. My boss has it in his boat for GPS and entertainment and loves it.

The Garmin Fusion had issues with phone connections at first. They have released a bunch of updates to resolve issues along with map updates at no charge since the initial release last year. They still have more work to do. Hopefully Soundstream will provide the same support ……

There are a lot of posts here on the Garmin Fusion like this thread on the Soundstream, a lot of complaints. I wish Jayco would of stuck with them as Garmin is big in the GPS and Fusion is big in the boating industry. Think over time they will make a great RV system ……

I just bought the XM kit from Amazon and installed it. If you do buy it just take out the dog house. You can see behind the stereo. The XM plugs in on the right side of the stereo in the rear (right side when you are facing it from the front). The connector goes in upside down so you have to use some kung-fu ninja moves to get it to plug in, but it will go in after yelling at your RV a bit. For now I placed the antenna on the dash, but I will route it up to the top bunk later.

There is an iPhone app “Fusion Link” which you can pair by Bluetooth. You should try.

The Fusion Link app only works with the Garmin Fusion, not the Soundstream ……

So everything I was reading prior was that most people hated the Garmin. Now I'm reading this Soundstream won't even connect to my iPhone? Really?
