    I just switched my 2012 radio with XM for the 2014 touch screen/enTune/Nav unit sold here. My XM antenna won't plug into the back of the XM module. Does anyone know of an adapter that is available?

    antenna plug:
    xm%20plug_zpsyvy61rsx_a5c28c1da4b81c5fe7074baf34e08158a7be1496.jpg

    antenna slot:
    xm%20slot_zpskawqjg86_117fae44c191e0c35647cb5777bcdb5ede95fa88.jpg

    ... and my USB port below the AC controls no longer charges my phone.

    there is a good chance you might need a new satellite receiver to hook into the HU. there is a chance the new HU won't decode the signal from the factory system

    Not likely. The HU is an OEM 2014 and the XM module is an OEM 2014. The plugs between the two units interfaced perfectly.

    I think that I need a SFA12F adapter, but it is 12' of cable that I have to stash under my dash!

    I only need 3".

    That 1/4 round port you posted looks like GPS antenna port.

    Yup! I plugged that antenna into the HU and tucked the antenna under the dash.

    The black socket in my pics is on the XM module that bolts to the bottom of the HU. The blue plug comes from the shark fin on the roof of my truck, which is the XM antenna.

    Try an eBay search for a Toyota GPS antenna; although I did not see one for a Tacoma. The one pictured above with the number 125 is correct. I do not know if other part numbers will have the correct connection.

    Did you find the adapter for the antenna... I bought a Taco in Mexico (they dont come with the xm module)
    So I bought the XM module at ebay, and it fits the entune system perfectly, however, I need an adapter to plug in the antenna to the pioneer xm module.
