    UPDATE:
    Good News! Eugene Kaspin of VAIS Technology (vaistech.com) responded to my request for a custom Toyota/Lexus "square" satellite antenna connector cable (Female to Male). He quoted me $80 + 10 shipping with a 2 day turn-around time. Of course, I said LETS DO IT! [​IMG]

    So, just wanted to pass this info on for anyone else needing a custom cable solution. Here's his contact info:

    I'm looking for the cable(s) that connect an OEM satellite (XM) antenna to the back of an 09+ JBL radio w/built-in XM tuner.

    There are actually 2 cables: one that runs from the headliner (where it's connected to the roof-mounted antenna) to the left kick panel and another that runs from the left kick panel to the back of the JBL radio (blue connector).

    Also, if anyone has a "XM Fit Kit" (for non-JBL radios) I would be interested in the antenna cable provided as well.

    Thanks! :)

    The 1st pic depicts the "blue" connector on the back of the radio (Female).
    The 2nd pic (w/Quarter) is the connector on the OEM XM antenna (Male).
    So, a reasonably long (9'-12') Male-Female cable would do the trick!

    I'm interested in getting a HU with the XM installed in it. If I understand correctly, this would have the blue connector on the rear? Then, I would need a cable like the one you purchased from VAIS and an antenna and thats it, I'd have XM capability?.....correct?
    Any help you can provide is appreciated. THANKS!

    Correctamundo! However, only 09+ JBL HUs have a built-in XM receiver. If you have a 09+ NON-JBL HU, you can add an external XM receiver. Of course, in either case, you need a satellite antenna. I prefer the OEM "look" so I bought a color-matched OEM Antenna.

    If you have a pre-09 Taco, you can always replace yours with an 09+. Stick with your HU type (JBL/non-JBL) though, since the wiring/connectors are quite different.

    Refer to my post detailing how to install a 09+ HU in a 05-08 Taco:

    Feel free to ask questions...:)

    A "Shark Fin Adapter" cable allows the use of an OEM antenna with an AFTERMARKET HU. If you instead want to use an OEM HU, you need the cable I purchased from VAIS Tech.
