Add SiriusXM satellite radio to your Toyota

This clever adapter 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.

Installation is surprisingly simple. All you need to do is remove the factory radio, connect the adapter to your vehicle's USB port and a constant power source, then connect to your SiriusXM tuner.

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 LCD display or a double-DIN receiver with a big, touchscreen display. Use your touchscreen, radio controls, steering wheel controls, or tuning knob to browse through channels and search by category. To make things even easier, you can preset up to 36 of your favorite channels.

Retains Factory Features: The Vais Technology SL3sat-T allows you to keep all factory installed components (such as 6-disc CD changer, CD/DVD changer, Rear Seat Entertainment System, etc).

SAT & CD-Changer Modes: When you connect the SL3sat-T to the audio system, your Toyota factory radio recognizes it as an additional CD/MD changer or as a SAT radio receiver. Control & Text features depend on how your Toyota or Scion model vehicle and how the factory recognizes this interface.

  • Controls: The Vais Technology SL3sat-T allows you to search & select SiriusXM Satellite Radio stations for playback through your vehicle's factory radio. 
    • Tuning: You can use the tuning knob of your factory radio for quick browsing through SiriusXM's wide channel selection, or browse by category if you prefer (SAT-mode only).
    • Presets: You are able to preset 18 of your favorite SiriusXM Satellite Radio stations for easy and quick selection (SAT-mode only).
    • Steering Wheel Control: You can also control basic SiriusXM Satellite Radio functions through your vehicle's steering wheel controls.
  • Text Information: Channel and Song information will be displayed on your factory radio's LCD or Navigation screen (SAT-mode or CD/MD Changer mode).
Note: The SL3sat-T interface requires programming to set the proper emulation mode for your model vehicle and type of factory radio.

Level Adjustment: You can adjust the input sound level of the SL3sat-T and the SXV300 satellite receiver (sold separately). The sound level adjustment allows you to balance the volume control with other sources of your factory radio (such as CD player, FM radio, etc), and eliminates possible distortions caused by high-input levels.

Electronic Ground Noise Isolator: A built-in electronic ground noise isolator to eliminates unwanted car engine noise.

Y-Harness: The included 20-pin audio Y-harness plugs in between your vehicle's factory radio and the Vais Technology SL3sat-T interface.

Q
I bought this SL3sat-T along with a SXV300 tuner at Crutchfield. The sound is great, but I am not able to tune in all of my normal SiriusXM Channels. I can only tune up to channel 255, and one of my favorite channels is 311. What did I do wrong? I have tried refreshing the signal from SiriusXM to the radio, but still the same.

I have a different SiriusXM receiver in my truck, and 311 is one of my favorites too (Yacht Rock!). I don't have the internet option and I am able to get channel 311 and higher on that receiver, a Kenwood. I'm looking at this receiver for our van. I hope the channel availability is not limited.
[ raymond  Oct 26, 2017 ]

Mine works for my (narrow) purposes, which are channels 2 to 132, SiriusXM hits to Triumph talk, respectively. Being in what is considered rural area, I'm satellite dependent. There's nothing sat-radio-dedicated on the ground, and cell tower signals can fade behind a rock formation. Looking at SXM's lineup, some channels are online only, some sat & online, and some just sat. The farthest RH column in the listings shows the status of any given channel. Maybe you're up against some limitations in the delivery by SXM. Or so my research indicates.
[ DANIEL  Sep 17, 2017 ]
A
Satellite broadcast only includes up to channel 299. Higher channels are internet (online) only. I know this is a bummer.
