I have a 2008 Honda Accord 4cyl Sedan EX-L-NAV. It has integrated XM. I want to switch to sirius. I Have decided yo get the HONSC1 and the doc unit to use my sportster as the tuner. I found the directions online on how to install this.

My question is regarding the Honda XM antenna. Can I use the GM XM antenna adapter 4 a Honda? It looks the same and it's $50 cheaper.

TSS radio has a HONXM1SIRIUS at the below URL for 89.99. They also have GM one which looks identical for 29.99. I do not think I need the extension cable that comes with it. Did they just repackage the GM adapter for Honda and mark it up $50. The GM one looks like it will fit, has anyone tried it? Please let me know.

The honda ones are totally different, far more expensive to make and require a 20 Foot Extension cable which is the reason for the price difference.

The GM one will NOT work at all on your vehicle. But the Jury is out whether you for sure need the 20 Foot Extension. Brian R. Webb who makes the Honda Adapters swears they do require it for proper signal but we've had some people say they did it without the 20 Foot Extension (which has pretty much been temp discontinued) and they have returned that portion for a refund.

So some have found that the adapter on it's own works good enough for them.

Of course feel free to email brianrwebb@ca.rr.com for clarification since he is more than an expert on all of these.
