XM/Sirius Radio Antenna

Does anyone have any information regarding the use of the roof mounted antenna with the OEM SatRadio? I've got a '10 DC (non-JBL)

I've pulled the install instructions on Sirius and it shows an additional antenna. I've also pulled in the install instructions for XM and it shows an antenna cable. Obviously I would perfer the use of the roof mounted antenna and there is no difference to me on which service I use.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You can get an antenna adapter at tssradio.com, it plugs in down by the kick panel. You will also need a tuner to use the factory radio, the whole package with antenna tuner is about 150 IIRC. Look in the audio forum there is a sat install thread for an 09 I think, should be the same.

Sounds like the best way to go!

Where is the connection made with the SFA12M? Meaning, does the headliner need to come down or does it it plug in around the kickpanel?

I am well aware that the Radio is capable and I needed the kit, which I bought from Toyota. The only question I had was regarding the roof mounted antenna.

I was in the same boat as you and ended up buying the XM tuner and "fit kit" (wiring) from toyota as well . I installed it in less than a half hour, using the roof mounted antenna. You don't even need to remove the HU. Here is a pdf with the part numbers and install instructions for others who are interested.
