    Anyone know if Toyota is ever planning to offer a satellite ready radio for the 2nd Gen Tacoma. Just purchased an 08 D-Cab, and was disappointed Toyota offers Satellite radio on most of their others models, why not the Taco?????

    I think I'd be interested in trying this thing out, as long as I hear positive reviews from anyone on this site who has it.

    I use an XM Roady 2 and it transmits to an unused station. Took 10 minutes to install.

    Thats way too expensive; $225. No need for that.

    You can get an XM receiver and transmit it to an unused radio station. I use 88.1fm. The Antenna is a magnet(carwash proof) on the passenger side of my roof. Ran the wire down the windshield under the weather stripping, inside the passenger door, under the dash to the center console. Used black electrical tape to hold the wire in place in the door jam & under the dash. Works flawlessly. Great when traveling, I never have to change stations. I've had XM for 3 years now.

    Many people, including myself, are not fans of the transmitter type due to lack of sound quality. Here in Dallas, it is hard to find a station that is free of interference. A hard wired option just tends to sound clearer to me rather than the transmitter option. If you don't notice the difference or don't have the option of hardwiring, then there is really no big deal.

    thanks for your input !, taking your input and the fact that directed electronics translator toy-sc1 is supposed? to work on any toyota head unit that is xm ready, coupled it with the sc-c1 universal tuner and wallaa! works like it came from the factory
