If I had it to do all over again, I would not have gone this route. This system is not plug and play. You need to hard wire to a power source, but the connection to the stereo is via USB and the connection from the XM antenna is a plug. Although you can control the volume and select channels via your factory radio, you cannot use your factory radio presets. The preset channel option does not allow you to see your preset channels on your screen and select one by touchscreen, but you have to long press your "next" button and can only cycle through the presets. Also, the hardware from Crutchfield was not installed with the most recent software update. This required a separate purchase of a micro USB to USB adapter to be able to download an update. You will not find this adapter at any local store as nobody carries anything micro USB anymore. I think next time I would have rather gone with a programmable XM radio from XM which would have had a better interface and would have been cheaper. Sure, you will have to deal with an external XM module and cords, but it's not like this interface is all tucked away. The adapter plugs into your USB, which you will see. Save the hassle and the $ and just get your vehicle with factory XM radio.
