I was not able to get radio apart. The instructions were very vague. I will have to pay someone to install

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I needed this adapter for Sirius XM fm direct connect. [ JACOB  Apr 19, 2017 ]
Because it was recommended to use, so I assume I need it [ Michael  Oct 09, 2016 ]
I need to test the antenna on my 07 Porsche Cayman. I think the current design (booster, windshield antenna) isn't working so I'm going to connect a normal vehicle antenna directly to the radio and if the radio gets reception (which it barely does now), I'll keep it. If not, then I'll purchase a new head unit. The Porsche unit is terrible, including the CD player. [ marc  May 22, 2016 ]
New truck, needed adapter to install my Sirius radio. [ Christopher  Apr 16, 2016 ]
To add isimple to my factory system. 40-EU10 required also. [ Theodore  Dec 13, 2015 ]
