How much is all this costing you?  I have a Kenwood aftermarket radio in my cars and truck which is satellite-ready and has front-panel USB for playing music with flash drives or iPods.  It requires a satellite tuner, and also the Kenwood interface box.  Total of these and the satellite antenna was only about $70, and the radio was $139 including adapter harness.  The only thing my setup lacks is GPS; but I have a discrete unit for that.

I have NAV and Sirius in my 09. Let me repeat what Bob just said. The factory NAV is inferior and I keep a Garmin in the car. The radio is fine, but you can get an add on from Sirius for very little money, which is what we did with the wife's 92.

Thanks for the replies.Some things are not about the easy way out.Even if a car or upgrades could be a loser or more expensive trying to stick with the buliders installs is what some do.Remember the Pinto.What one now could be worth in good condition. ok I'm still waiting for some help still as I cannot get this to work. :facepalm:

 The 1st gen PT changed from PCI bus to 2nd gen CAN bus in 2006. Before and after likely will not work together. Is it the connector ends that are different or do they connect and won't communicate?
