Customers may be unsure if they can receive "the best of XM".
Basically, in the most simple terms, M-BUS vehicles will NOT get
Stations and CAN-BUS vehicles will. The reason is that the satellite
system hardware was upgraded to handle additional channels (i.e. best of
XM) at the same time as the upgrade to the CAN-BUS language. The
hardware upgraded was the satellite module (DLP), which changed from
Generation 1 (black module) to Generation 2 (light gray module).
Here is a summary of the upgrade timing vehicle by vehicle:
Mazda5 upgraded for 2008MY
Mazda3 upgraded for 2009MY
Mazda6, CX-9, RX-8 and MX-5 upgraded for 2009MY
CX-7 without NAV upgraded for 2009MY
CX-7 with NAV upgraded for 2010MY
