    I just upgraded my head unit from the JVC-NT1 to the Pioneer AVH-P8400BH and I'm loving every minute if it. I was just wanting to know if there is any way to utilize the stock XM radio antenna that came with my truck, or do I need to get an entirely new setup like the manual of the Pioneer says? It says I need to have the Pioneer GEX-P920XM XM Satellite Tuner for it to work. Here is where I would get it http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0009I96LC/ref=redir_mdp_mobile.

    If I do have to use it, could the antenna that is already on the roof of my truck work with the Pioneer tuner?

    generally speaking, any antenna will work with any unit, pioneer is just trying to get some more of your hard earned...

    unless they use a proprietary plug, you are good to go...

    What is a proprietary plug? And, will the stock Tacoma XM tuner "and" antenna not work with the Pioneer?

    Does your head unit require this:

    http://www.amazon.com/SiriusXM-SXV2...90280&sr=8-1&keywords=siriusxm+sxv200v1+tuner

    The new units can capture both Sirius and XM (they're one company but still have separate programming to prevent the govt from thinking of them as a monopoly). Since yours is an 09 I doubt it would work since the new unit you'd need probably isn't compatible with it. Your 09 probably only picked up either Sirius or XM, I don't know who Toyota partnered with.

    I could be entirely wrong but functionally thinking that's my guess. Only one way to find out right!
