Enjoy the drive with SiriusXM
With the SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner, you can liven up your daily drive with your favorite satellite radio programming. Small enough to fit neatly behind your car's dash, this tuner plugs into your compatible car stereo without the need for any additional cables or interfaces. This complete package includes the hideaway satellite radio tuner, plus an installation guide and an exterior antenna that attaches with a powerful magnetic base.
New features with select car stereos
With newer car stereos, you can access great SiriusXM features like TuneMix™, which plays a unique blend of songs chosen from your favorite music channels on the SiriusXM Preset Band. You can even skip songs you don't want to hear.
If you have an older SiriusXM-compatible receiver, you won't get all the new features, but you'll still get all the SiriusXM music, entertainment, news, and sports programming you love, plus familiar features like Replay and iTunes® song tagging. You can even set Song/Artist/Game alerts, so you'll always know when your favorite tunes or teams are playing on another channel. And you'll be able to enjoy those new features when you upgrade your receiver. Either way, SiriusXM's vast lineup of music, sports, news, and more will make your daily drive a whole lot more entertaining.
Important Note: Your receiver MUST have the "SiriusXM-Ready" logo — this tuner is not compatible with receivers that have "SAT Radio Ready", "Sirius Ready DC", or "XM Ready" logos.
Installation Note: If your car has a FAKRA-style satellite radio antenna connection at the radio location, we offer an adapter that will connect this tuner to your car's factory satellite radio antenna.
