    My apologies if this has been asked in the past. I have the standard plug-and-play (Starmate 4) Sirius receiver. I am curious how I can use the pre-installed satellite antenna for my receiver? Is it currently connected to the factory radio and just a matter of unconnecting it from the radio and re-routing it to my Sirius mount? I'm on a tight budget so the purchasing the least amount from Toyota or Sirius is the key.

    Can someone shed some light on this newb?

    Yes this is it. Thanks. Where is the cheapest place to get one? So far the cheapest I can find is $59.99.
