Garmin 2820 and XM radio

I have the 2820. Really like it. Trying to set up for XM radio but I see the recommended antenna on the Garmin.com site is the GXM 30 which goes for like 250 dollars. Can this be right?

Oh ya that the price. I'm waiting until I see one on ebay cheaper. Until then I will use the mp3 player on board.

Antenna

What is so vexing is that one of the 27 series has an antenna built in. Also, I'm wondering if there are any other less expensive antennas that would do the job, especially on a bike where you have very little to block the signals.

Have not found one yet. They are smart they put the XM subscription with the antenna. You need to move the antenna around with you. If you want XM in your car you need to keep the gps and the antenna together.
