    I just bought a 2012 Tacoma SR5 Access Cab 4X4 V-6. The sticker indicates the truck is "XM Ready" and the single CD radio has a AM-SAT button on the face.

    Question: Is there an XM fit kit that will allow me to connect the XM receiver to the OEM radio behind the driver's side kick panel and not require the radio to be removed from the dash?

    I find the XM fit kit (PT546-35090) and the XM receiver (PT545-00080) for the 2009-2011 Tacomas that "appears" to allow this, but I do not find anything for the 2012's.

    Also, are all 2012's prewired for an XM antenna? Mine does not have an XM antenna, but I do not know if the wiring harness is there.

    I just bought the XM radio Mounting Kit PT546-35090 and Tuner Assembly 86180-0W032 assuming the connections were going to be in the left side cowl side trim board.Sorry to say there aren't any connections present.I knew there wouldn't be one for the antenna as there is not one attached to the truck but was sure from what research I did there would be one for the radio.At this time I am waiting for a reply back from the Toyota Dealership as to what I can do.

    (Just found this out)If it does not have the satellite roof antenna,it does not have satellite,nor will these two kits connect to it to the stock radio:Mounting Kit PT546-35090 Tuner Assembly 86180-0W031.I ordered this equipment and just finished taking it back as my 2012 Tacoma doesn't have the radio or antenna connection in the left side cowl side trim board.If your truck had a sat antenna on the cab but no sat radio when pushing the button(sat/am)then these two kits would work as long as you could see the connections present.(I found all this out the hard way.)

    I'd like to find out about this as well, the truck I test drove had satellite radio, and I was assuming the one I was buying had it as well, but it doesn't. Not a deal breaker, but something I'd potentially like to have, so if anyone knows exactly what we need to buy to make this happen, I'd love to hear it!

    After taking the equipment back (see above posts) to the dealership I ordered this: Isty11 Satellite Radio Kit With Auxiliary Input (toyota/scion/lexus) and this :SiriusXM SCC1 SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner from Sears.com but the orders are coming from two different online stores.The first order that I ended up taking back to the Toyota Dealership was $328.This order was $180.35.I will post results after it arrives and is installed.

    My '12 Access Cab V-6 4X4 has the harness behind the driver's kick panel to plug in the antenna and the radio. I don't know that they are hooked into anything, however. I do not have an XM antenna, so I assume that connection goes nowhere ....

    Installed all the equipment and got the SCC1 activated for $94 and some change.The display will not show over 9 characters and there is no way I can find to make this scroll.The sound is just fine and the units are installed behind the factory radio on the left and right sides behind the vents.I am disappointed in the lack of a scrolling as I thought it would show all the text.

    Is that a limitation of the head unit, or is it a dip switch on the interface unit? I installed one in my girlfriend's Honda, and the scrolling was a setting on the HON-SC1 interface there.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I saw in your post above which was the interface.
