i dont have an external antenna on car but my main question is: do i need anything else to make sirius work thats all i really want for my car i have a portable unit now and it sucks going through the fm module
[/quote]Other than an antenna setup, nothing else as this HU is Sirius ready. I'm actually looking into what exactly one would need for a car without the antenna already present. I will ask around but this HU will work with your car.
You cannot buy an antenna for this HU as it's a Ford specific part and only Ford will sell it. You'll then need to contact Ford for the appropriate antenna setup for your car, other than that you should be good to go.
Here's a pic of a few cables, one of which I got from Dan (slaterracing
), the other came off the car when new HU was installed along with the new Sirius tuner...
Now with my new HU, the Kenwood DDX712, I had to add a whole new Sirius Tuner, link below:
the item in the middle is the antenna that mounted right on my dash in dead center, perfectly flush with the windshield.
