Add SiriusXM satellite radio to your Ford

This clever adapter from Vais Technology lets you enjoy SiriusXM satellite radio directly through your vehicle's factory receiver. All you need is a subscription, a SiriusXM SXV300 tuner (not included), and a few minutes of installation time — you'll be ready to hit the road with all your favorite music, sports, news, and entertainment programming at your fingertips.

Simple installation

Installation is surprisingly simple, thanks to easy-to-use locking connectors. You won't need to dig into your dashboard and plug into your factory radio, and you won't have to worry about a clunky cassette adapter or FM transmitter. The GSR connects to your vehicle's USB port and a constant power source, then connects to your SiriusXM tuner. (Note: This adapter is not compatible with the Ford SYNC firmware CCPU version that starts with EE309.)

More functionality, same factory features

You won't lose any of your vehicle's factory functionality, either. You'll be able to control your satellite radio tuner through the factory receiver and steering wheel audio controls, plus retain use of any iPod/iPhone add-ons, the CD/DVD changer, the rear seat entertainment system, or most anything else that's part of your system.

You'll also be able to see channel and song information on your receiver, whether it's a single-DIN receiver with a multi-line display or a double-DIN receiver with a touchscreen. Use your touchscreen, radio controls, steering wheel controls, or tuning knob to browse through channels and search by category. You'll enjoy faster speed and user interface enhancements that'll make finding songs and stations a breeze. To make things even easier, you can preset up to 36 of your favorite channels.

Would not buy again

Victoria from Durango on 5/3/2019

2019 Ford F-250 XL

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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.
