I recently bought my first Prius, a 2005. Only thing I'm not happy with is the lack of Satellite Radio. I have the regular non-JBL head unit and have been trying to research how to install XM using OEM components for a clean look.

While searching the forum I found a number of related threads but nothing that answered my question. I did find a thread that listed Toyota part number PT546-06040 a "Solara XM Kit" as being compatible with a Prius. Can anyone tell me what is included in this kit? Is the actual XM tuner box included or is this basically just a wiring/antenna kit? It's only $90 which isn't too bad if it's really all I need.

Thanks in advance for any info!

I just added an AUX port to the radio in my 2004 back in 2009 and just move my Delphi MyFi XM2GO radio between cars. I got the adapter from Grom Audio and, IIRC, it plugs into the CD player port on the back of the radio. The output is by way of RCA jacks and I found a 1/8" female Aux input that uses RCA plugs for connections. My XM radio has 3 ports: Antenna, Power (I use the pax power port), and Audio Out. So I connect a 1/8" male to male cable to the 1/8" Aux port which is connected via the RCA connections to the Grom adapter which is plugged into the back of the radio.

This is similar to the adapter I used: http://gromaudio.com/store/aux1_adapters/toyota_lexus_scion_02-2012_auxiliary_input_adapter_kit.html
