    So i got my pioneer XM receiver hooked up to my AVIC 710 a little bit ago. I'm already loving it! I can't believe I've been settling for FM radio this long! Nothing special so no pics yet. Put the receiver under the drivers seat; gonna get some velcro on the bottom to keep it secure. i got the cable from TSS audio that lets you use the factory satellite antenna with the aftermarket unit, works great and keeps me from having to use the black one and having a cable exposed. For you guys with XM, i'm already getting a bunch of channels. The unit was used, could it be that its unlocked without having to go through XM??:headbang::headbang:

    sweet! I like my dad's Sirius. I hate riding in my mom's car listening to the regular radio with all those commercials, it's so annoying.

    Well hopefully you wont get tired of it. I cancelled mine about a year ago. They play the same songs over and over and over and over again...just like FM radio. I only listen to AM talk radio and my ipod now

    But they are usually NEW songs. Regular radio plays more older songs than newer. Plus, if you get bored of the music, you have comedy, sports radio, Howard Stern, talk show, and sports to listen to

    When I bought my 2010 Dbl cab TRD Offroad last August my factory radio came with a free 3 month subscription to XM/Sirius.It is now January and I still have the sat radio.They never shut it off.I don't really care though cause the sat radio is just as boring to me as regular FM radio.Free is always good though.

    well i've been listening to the lithium channel (90s ALT) a lot. Its been a great mix and I haven't heard the same song twice yet. Its definitely stuff I don't hear on the radio

    I realized when I had XM in my Accord and my Tacoma I still switched around to different stations quite frequently. I figured I could do that for free with regular FM broadcasts. Plus, I don't really listen to the radio that often anyway so it's not that important to me. In fact, I have had this truck since July and I don't think I have listened to an FM station on it.

    Big fan of satellite radio. I do like the sports coverage, when I'm not dialing up the classic rock.
