    I'm looking to find a xm satellite radio antenna adapter. I want to use my shark fin antenna on my 2012 with my 2014 head unit. This is the plug for my stock 2012 antenna. It's the blue plugImageUploadedByTapatalk1438414097.686807.jpg
    The new unit uses the same style plug as the GPS antenna which looks like thisImageUploadedByTapatalk1438414136.016054.jpg
    Has anyone figured this out or am I alone? I cannot find a write up on this. Any help is appreciated

    Anyone? Is this some sort of top secret plug? No one knows where to find this connector?

    I hear you, not trying to be a pest but this is frustrating not being able to find these components. Seems they are only OEM

    I have never seen adapters that go between various OEM connectors. You may have to cut one off and replace it to match. Our more likely cut both of them off.

    I have the same issue.

    How will this work? The plug on that cable is the same as the plug on the 2012 antenna cable.

    --------------------------------------

    Edit: Figured it out. The one that is linked is the SFA12M (male). You need the SFA12F (female for your blue plug).
