2015 Limited Starlink w Nav/XM question

Hello everyone. I recently purchased a 2015 Sport 2.0 Limited with the Nav Starlink system. It's been great so far. I previously had a 2012 Legacy w the H/K system w XM. One thing I've noticed with this new car is that I get a lot more XM dropouts or no signal messages than I ever received on the Legacy, and my daily route to/fro work has changed. I'm wondering is this something with the way the Starlink system handles the signal (i.e., no buffering whatsoever, so any blockage results in instaneous dropout), or could there be some extra interference from the roof rack on the Sport (highly unlikely), or could it just be that my antenna isn't great? I don't think it's a bad connection, because the dropouts only happen when going near hills or under thick trees. But it seems odd how quickly it will dropout where the legacy or my wife's Honda accord wouldn't.

Any thoughts?

Sounds signal related, dunno if you can get a signal booster fitted?

Would a signal booster work for receiving satellite radio? I would've expected to need a better antenna. Where could I look into signal boosters?
