I took my car to Best Buy to have my new Sportster replay installed. The tech called me after 2 hours to say he would be unable to install it because I needed some antenna adapters that he had no idea really what they were or how to get them? Now I'm at a loss. Does this kid really know what he is talking about. Why couldn't he just use the AUX jack in the console and use the sirius antenna that came with it? Any help would be appreciated.

sounds like your trying to have it hardwired in?

I am using the frequency tuner, no wires.. haven't had any sound issues/static at all.. just tune the unit to a channel and set your radio to the channel and voila your listenin to satelite.

plus driving a demo i dont want the wiring etc.. and really all I listen to is Howard...

Probally lose sound quality on the music stations I think this way, but I haven't noticed any for what I use it for.

He probably didn't know it was there.

As far as the antenna adapters, apprently they are the same as what other European cars use...a FAKRA connector.

This one is made by METRA:

You'd need both if you wanted to hook it up that way, which I don't really recommend because FM modulation doesn't sound as good as using the AUX input.

These adaptors will be useful if you ever want to add an HD Radio tuner to your car, however.

Bottom line, the kid could've used the AUX input but I bet he didn't even know it was there.
