Just seeing if there is any interest here. I am probably going to switch over to the stiletto after christmas, so this will be up for sale. It is in great condition, only used for 5 months or so. I "think" the only accessory that will not be included is the OEM xm car antenna. I do have another antenna that I can throw in though.

Is that a direct connect cable? How does it hookup in the car?

The cable shown looks like an AUX cable.

correct. the car kit comes with a aux-in cable to use (if your car has aux-in), and I also have a XM direct connect. Just plug in your antenna, and FM antenna and it cuts out all radio signal on that frequency.



I think you can also use the car kit over FM transmitter, but I am not positive about that.

Is the XM direct connect the same as the Sirius direct connect? I already have the SIR version in my Jeep.

Slightly different. The sirius one connects into the dock in a FM spot, where the XM connects into the XM antenna spot on the dock. They function the same though

Oooh. I see. I can't see having both systems installed, then.

Thanks anyway dude.
