Default 06 Nissan OEM pricing I found

I have been searching for some reasonable pricing for a Sirius tuner for my 2006 Nissan Frontier w/6 CD Rockford Fosgate sat ready package. I found this: 999U9-AS004 tuner kit $194.14 + Bracket $6.30 + window antenna kit $62.16 = $262.60. Has anyone out there found a better deal or any better options than the OEM system? I would like to keep my head unit since it is SAT ready.

Thanks for your input!!

That's a really good price. I also have a 06 Fronty with the fosgate package. One thing I was wondering is if a normal sirius antenna will plug into the sat rad tuner kit? Or do you have to buy their antenna? I'm using a starmate replay playing throught the pac aai-nis. I don't like the fact of having to give up artist alert and the replay function. Not to mention the one line display of the factory radio. I too would love to be able to contol everything from the radio or steering wheel, but I'm kinda on the fence.

yes a normal sirius anteena will work (i have a micro dot antenna with my 06 Titan tuner)


it is not a perfect fit as the tuner is made to accept the green plastic locking fakra connector, but the more common 90 degree plug will work, but you have to push it in kinda hard.....it will go in (the rubbery plastic covering over the new plug is ever-so-slightly larger than the tuners plastic tab) so a little push and it'll slip in...

mine has worked flawless for 6 months....

I think courtesy nissan has the sigma with the plastic thing on it. I got their sigma and had to break it off. I has a site that had a regular to that plastic adapter but I deleted it. I forget what they call it but I just did a search on google and the place came right up

Default Nissan OEM

So I installed my OEN Tuner in my 06 Frontier but I am getting NO SIGNAl a lot. It is really not good considering what I paid for the OEM tuner and antenna. Is there issues with the OEM atenna that anyone knows of. I can be sitting in my driveway, one minute getting a signal the next not. All the wile my home set up gets a good signal. The OEM antenna I installed is the glue to the window above the rear view.

Any advice out there? I did not pay this money for spotty service.

Thanks

which oem antenna do you have? the sigma windshield one? if so, than most likely that is the problem as the dot micro or the terk micro work just fine for me, i have only lost signal 2 or 3 times in a year when under overpasses, never just simply dropped out.

Yes I have the inside the windshield antenna, it sits right above the rearview mirror, I was wondering if that was the best choice of antenna. Now it is glued there, how in the heck will I get that off?!?!?!?! Why sell a product that doesn't work... sheeesh.... What is the best choice of antenna to work with the OEM tuner? Where do I find it?

yeah, if you see on various nissan forum websites you see not a lot of interest in the sigma antenna, just doesn't seem to work all that well. more dropouts etc. i would get the sirius micro dot antenna.
the oem tuners have been rock solid overall (but as with anything there is a small chance you issue is the tuner, but very very very very few complaints about the tuner, tons more issues with the sigma)

the antenna i use has the 90 degree connector while the oem tuner need a straight connector. TSS sells a terk antenna with the green farka connector which i used for about 6 months but than started to get the same problem you have, the antenna would not connect and i got a no signal message. i looked at my antenna and rust was actually strting to come out from the seem of the antenna, i knew that water got into it and basicli fried it. so i bought the dot micro from tss and it works even better than the previous antenna. although with the 90 degree plug, you do have to sorta "force" it into the tuner. the protective rubber boot over the antenna connector is ever so slightly larger than the connector on the tuner, but with a little extra push it will go in and work fine, mine has been that way for a bout 4 or 5 months now. you might also be able to file or sand the rubber boot down a little to get it to fit better, but in my opinion, it's fine the way i got it to go in.
