Just Tuned In

Default Antenna question

I just bought a Toyota FJ Cruiser and it came pre-installed with XM. I already have a Sirius S50 and I don't want to activate the XM. Is it possible to swap out just the pre-installed XM receiver for a Sirius one? Would I have to change everything or just the receiver? Can the antenna that was installed for XM be used on a Sirius tuner that I can buy? I am figuring that if I can use the antenna then all I would have to do is change the tuner which is in the back of the truck somewhere.

you can use the antenna that is not a problem
but the toyota radio was made to work with xm not sirius what you can do is get aux input plug and plug in the back of the radio and send the sat audio in to the toyota radio pie makes the aux input interface

you will want to visit TSS and take a look at the Vais Tech OEM Sirius integration adapter, expensive, but it is the only way that i know of currently a Toyota owner can convert his XM Ready, pre-wired vehicle into a Sirius one:

your current OEM roof-mount antenna can be adapted to the Sirius Direct Tuner.

Default Another antenna question

I installed the new 2006 OEM unit in my 2006 Frontier and used the supplied "on the windshield" antenna located in the cab above the rear view mirror. I keep getting "no signal", is there known problem with this antenna? I double and triple checked all my wiring and the signal keeps dropping out. I spent a lot of money for the OEM tuner and expect it to work correctly. I can get a clear signal with my Sportser and its antenna laid on the ground next to my truck but no signal from my truck system. I drive down the street with clear views of the sky and it just drops in and out.

Any ideas or help on this issue???
