Default Poor Satellite Signal

Hi all, just curious if there is anything I can do with my weak Sat signal while listening to XM radio? My older ES as better signal in the same spots than my new car.

How new is new? If under warranty go complaint to the dealer. I think the height of the RX vs a lower car changes the angles at which the satellite signal gets cut off. Maybe it makes it more likely to have worse reception around buildings or trees. I am stretching a bit with this theory. You could compare another RX or SUV in the same areas. I never have much of an issue except on 2 lane rural roads in Summer where there are lots of big trees on each side. Then I sometimes have bad reception for a few seconds.
