I was driving home last night and was listening to XM when I noticed the screen simply had a box up that said "Check Antenna". The radio was still working fine. No static, no hiccups in reception. If I changed the channel, it would show the channel for about a second before going back to telling me about the antenna. I powered the radio off and the box came up after I turned it back on. After about maybe 7-8 minutes it went away and didn't come back for the next half hour or so driving home. We'll see if it is back today as I have the OB for the weekend with my wife out of town.

Anyone else get this? Loose connection somewhere maybe? Like I said, the performance of the radio never suffered. The satellite antenna is the "shark fin" right? I did check it the best I could once I got home. Everything looks fine, I even tried to give it a shake to see if it was secure and it is secure.

Mine did this about 2 weeks after I got it. It wouldn't work for about 10 minutes. I shut the car off and came back 30mins later and it was fine. No problems since.

Had to drive two hours each way on Saturday and listened to XM nearly the whole time. No messages, so maybe it was just a weird glitch.
