    I have decided that I want to add satellite radio to my '07 DC. Can I just plug and play a unit from a later model Taco that is satellite ready? Is the wiring harness the same? Is a separate antenna involved?

    Just a thought, I will have a XM Onyx and mounting bracket like Zonks is talking about available in about 2 to 4 weeks. It is less than a year old and I would sell it for what I paid for it, $20 plus whatever shipping is (probably $10 or less through my work account). I just bought a new Pioneer and it will have XM Radio included.

    Another thing you might want to try is to call XM and see what kind of a deal they will make you on the different radios they have. Like I said, I only paid $20 for my XM Onyx but I had to sign up for two 2 years to get that deal.

    Hey O2,

    I had an 08 DC and I don't think it was sat ready either. Pretty sure the didn't introduce sat radio on the Tacoma as a factory option until 09.

    Check out our site, we have several options for plug and play tuners.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    I just added a plug-n-play Oynx to mine a couple weeks ago. Still want to "clean up" the wiring, but haven't had time. Works just fine with everything out of the box. Only additional item I'm thinking about is the converter to plug into the antenna spot in the back of the radio so I don't have to search for empty stations.

    Hey Deren, do you know if the optional antenna adapter is req'd for an '06 Tacoma? Any idea how difficult the FMDA is to install?

    Thanks.

    Darren,

    Just ordered the AVH-P1400DVD and GEX-P920XM from your fine tele-sales staff this morning. I have a 2009 regular cab tacoma, where's the best place for the GEX-P920XM? I'd prefer not to drill any holes behind the seats, what's your recommendation? The advice would be much appreciated!
