Hiss on the background while playing XM

I have just bought an 08 LT. It has a COM system. I am using AUX input with my XM radio. But I hear a slight hiss in the background. (Sounds like noise picked up from battery) Is there way to get rid of this hiss? Thanks in advance :-)

You might want to try a Ground Loop Isolator. I too get a slight hum from my Garmin 2820 running the stereo audio thorough the aux input on the comm system. You can get one here: http://www.PitStop4u.com.
