Can anyone tell me what radio this is? It has an aux jack on the lower left. The pic is from a 2006 limited and if it has Satellite radio?

thanks

There are three letters (they are very small) near the bottom of the right hand knob. What do they say ?

Oh, yeah, you don't have it yet. I thought you could go out and look at it. Anyway, those three letters are the model code for the unit. Not sure if all Limited's had sirius, but I would think so.

:weed:Sales code REF - AM/FM/CD (SINGLE DISC) Radio with optional satellite and hands free calling. Easiest away to tell if it has satellite radio factory installed is look for the antenna.

After doing some research on the internet I believe that is the REF unit.

Is the REF the bottom of the barrel? Single disk? i'm shocked that it has an aux input from 06, thats pretty progressive for that time period...

I made a picture of the REF radio in my dad's 2007 WK. This is the single disk radio with AUX. I beleive this is the exact same model installed in all 2006 & 2007 WK's and XK's.
As is, it only has CD, normal Radio and AUX. I think you can buy a Sirius radio package (http://www.justforjeeps.com/ausisarasy2.html).

For some reason not all of the REF radios had the AUX input.

No, the only difference is the Aux jack. It was still called the REF.

Ok, it is an REF with aux jack, it has uconnect in the rear view and sirius puck antenna on roof and Sat box under rear seat. The Sat radio is stuck on channel 184 and no sound. AM/FM work fine, Do i just need to activate the radio or do you guys think there is something wrong with the head unit?

Yes, I believe you need to activate the service. See this thread---> http://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/showthread.php?p=162573
