Default Compatability Question

Do most of the radio connections plug into the dock the same on all the PNP radios? I would like to add a newer radio and dock in my car. Do the wires plug into the dock the same. In other words, can I just remove my present dock and plug the wires into a newer dock. Thanks in advance.

It depends on your old PNP. The newer PNP's use 5.2 vdc not 12 vdc.
most of the antennas are compatable unless your antenna is really old.

You would have to do a little reaserch but.it may be possible.

Possibly, but I wouldn't count on it.

The antenna plug, probably, if your old tuner is fairly recent (not much more than a year and a half).

The FM Transmitter, probably, with the same caveats.

The power, probably not. Even if it was the same size, it might not deliver the same voltage, or might not be rated for the same current or power.

Still... two out of three ain't bad!

Thanks for the imput. It's an Audiovox PNP2 and uses a Terk antenna. I guess the antenna is really all that matters.

You can probably use that old Terk antenna. You might need to remove the FAKRA shell, but that's pretty easy. Here's some instructions.

The docks for non PNP2 radios are completely different.. Audiovox made docks specifically for the Audiovox PNP1 and PNP2, (There was an Audiovox PNP3 but the dock was different).

You can use the PNP2 antennas on all the newer Sirius receivers. The connector is the same. ( It doesn't have the FAKRA shell.. I'm using my PNP2 home antenna for my new generation Stratus)
