Default What do I need to plug in to AUX??

I just got a Toyota Camry and it has AUX input and I would like to know what I need to hook my sirus up to it? Do I need SIRIUS FM Direct Audio Relay (FMDA25)?

Thanks for your help....

all you need is a stereo 3.5mm (1/8in) cable with that on both ends, headphone jacks basically, but be warned that you will probably need a ground loop isolator, toyotas are notorious for having the feedback caused ny bad grounds mine sure did

Thanks

Radio Shack. Try this link: http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=search

You may need some adapters or another cable to install, but not sure about that part (dependent on the car radio head unit or aux adapter you're interfacing with).

I just put this PAC ground loop isolator in my Toyota 4Runner. It had terrible noise with the factory aux in. The nice thing about this isolator is that it comes with 3.5 jacks so no need for adaptors.
