    2013 R1200RT Sirius radio questions

    First post here so please be gentle‘«™
    I purchased a 2013 R1200RT about 2 months ago, great bike!!!! I decided to also purchase the BMW helmet communication system. Everything is working well, AM/FM, IPOD but when listening to Sirius radio it is very distorted. It sounds over driven even at low volumes. Are there any adjustments for this?
    Also, I find when I first turn on the bike, Sirius is always in preview mode no matter what channel I am on. Change the channel and it starts working. I am still on the free 1 year subscription which may be the issue. Thoughts?
    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I'm not sure about the distortion problem, mine does always start in preview mode however.

    Thanks for the help!! Good to know that‘«÷s ‘«£normal‘«ō. Still trying to figure out the distortion. Thought I might have flipped on the loudness setting but nope. Will keep looking.
    Thanks again!

    Did you turn down the bass boost? I have found the bluetooth to be very bad when you don't have the bass turned down to -5 or so...

    I have not and will try that next. The odd thing is that Ipod and FM radio sound OK.
    Will give it a try. Thanks!

    BTW, if anyone is interested and given IDisposable‘«÷s name, I am using an Iphone5 with the Apple lightning to 30pin adaptor into the BMW apple adaptor. Seems like a pile of adaptors but it works fine. Also, I use Itunes match. The BMW audio system will only ‘«£see‘«ō music which has been physically downloaded to the Iphone. Make sense. It works well for me as I can add music on the fly while eating lunch or whatever.
