Default Antenna Adapters Canada


So apparently nobody in Canada has ever used a wired FM modulator relay before. I managed to get one, from ebay, and I need the antenna adapters for my car (Focus). I've been to Best Buy and Future shop and CC and everyone, including the car audio install guys had no clue what I was talking about. I can get 1/2 of the adapter set but the reverse set is apparently not allowed to exist north of the 49th.... I know I could get it from the US but the shipping and customs fees are more than the price of the part. Anyone have a clue as to where in Canada one can obtain them?

I'm in Canada also and I found an fm modulator on ebay.

I am only interested in connecting the fm modulator from my Starmate to my stereo. I don't care if the car's fm antenna is connected.

when you say you got half of the adapter set which do you mean? The half that connects from the stereo to the fm modulator or the part that connects the external car antenna to the fm modulator?

Default adapters

I was able to get the adapter that would connect your car antenna to the Modulator. And that was the problem it just does not really help. Perhaps you'll have more luck than me in obtaining the parts locally. I finally relented and ordered them, paying more than the value of the part in shipping and customs fees really sucked......

I got the 2 adapters and an FM modulator for $35.00 CDN total from ebay. If I had found them here I would have spent $45.00 so ebay was the way to go.

Default Modulators

The guy at my Future Shop installed my Sirius Sportster with a XM FM Modulator.

And it works just fine.
