GROM VLine for Google Maps in your car and Sirius XM - FAQ

We often get the question - is it possible to use VLine for Google Maps, and listen to the Sirius XM at the same time?

The answer is no - you need to be in the GROM VLine mode in order to have Google Maps displayed on your factory stereo screen. Your stereo cannot be in two modes at the same time - GROM VLine and XM Mode.

However there is the good news - instead of using Sirius XM you can listen to the internet radio using VLine's own Web Radio plugin. Or alternatively you can download Sirius XM app from Google Play market and use it instead.
