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.

Fantastic product

Crutchfield customer from Merrimack, NH on 12/25/2018

2012 Toyota Sienna

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

Great product for a Toyota: my wife wanted Sat radio in our 2012 Sienna and this box magically makes the Sirius tuner look like "SAT" on the Navigation unit display. It's easy to install and small enough to fit under the front dash. Hardest part (as always) is running the antenna wire. If you have a few extra bucks, consider getting an aftermarket "shark fin" antenna that combines GPS and Sat in one housing.

Pros: Easy installation; it just works!

Cons: Installation instructions say that unit beeps in programming mode: it doesn't beep but the red LED indicates programming mode

This was the perfect match to my Toyota. I e-mailed Crutchfield and asked what part do I need to add xm radio and this part needed. It was easy to install. Watched the videos provided and installed it in less than 20 minutes thanks to the detailed instructions provided. Thanks

2013 Toyota Avalon

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

It does allow me to connect the SiriusXM tuner to my existing factory radio, but it does not allow me to tune all of the siriusxm channels that I get with my subscription. This limitation is not mentioned anywhere on the device, and I double-checked the compatibility before buying. On my pioneer stereo in another vehicle I am able to tune in all the channels in my subscription. If I had known that I could only tune in to channels up to 255 on this unit, then I would have spent the money on replacing the stereo instead. Now I have spent this much on the ability to keep a factory stereo with limited channels. I could have spent $299.99 on a superior after-market pioneer stereo that would retain all the features of my factory stereo and give me all the channels of my siriusxm subscription!

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: has limitations on number of channels it receives.

The module is exactly what you need to add sat radio to your stock Toyota radio. It's super easy to install and setup is a breeze. Crutchfield provided excellent tech data for my car so there were no surprises during nor after the install. I should also mention that the install gives your dash a nice clean look. No wires plugged into you power plug or Aux jack. All connections are made behind the radio. You will also see text on screen and retain your steering wheel controls. I'm extremely happy with this purchase.

Pros: Easy to install and setup Text displays on screen All connections are made behind the radio

Cons: None so far

It's installed. Took a bit of trial-and-error to get the whole ensemble (stock radio, SiriusXM SXV300V1 Tuner, and existing antenna) working. I'm good now.

Vais Technology SL3SAT-T and Sirius tuner install

Robert from Cleveland, OH on 4/11/2017

2013 Toyota RAV4

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

Worked exactly as advertised, easy install. I promised my wife to add satellite radio to her new (used) 2013 RAV4 when she bought it. It turns out it doesn't have a "satellite ready" head unit. After some research, I found the Vais Technology SL3SAT-T, which makes a "non-sirius-ready" head unit into a "sirius-ready" one. I wasn't sure it would work, so I called product support before ordering, got WONDERFUL answers and assurances from the product person. She said, "it might take some doing, but we can definitely make it work with your head unit." So I bought it, and the Sirius tuner. Everything installed as per the MasterSheet. Nice, easy install - no soldering or wire nuts, everything was in a pre-made harness. Fired up the first try. Took me 30 minutes to install. Wife is happy. All controls and displays are integral to the head unit - you wouldn't know it wasn't a factory satellite system.

Pros: Easy install No soldering No wire nuts Pre-made wiring harness Good instructions on removing dash Easy install Crutchfield support was great.

Cons: None- did exactly what I expected it to do.

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.
[ JASON  Sep 17, 2017 ]

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 ]
A
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.
