    I have a 2012 Jeep Compass with the standard radio.I want to swap in a radio with SIRIUS.
    What steps would I have to take to do this?

    Does your Jeep have a satellite radio antenna? If not, you'd also have to buy one and route it through from the outside, behind interior panels and up behind the dash to the radio.
    Subscription for the "Mostly Music" package, which is one of the cheapest, is about $148 per year now.

    It does not have factory SIRIUS. I do have Sirius through my aux plugs .Antenna kits are available on EBAY at reasonable prices.
    My concern is will the radio work plug and play or will it require a flash.

    If you have the security code (if one exists) to activate the radio in general, then you need to register the serial number of the radio with Sirius when you subscribe. I don't think any flash is necessary.

    Swap the radio, record the Sirius serial number, call Sirius, give them that number, subscribe and enjoy.

    I think you need to add install Sirius antenna to Norm's list.

    If he bought the complete package, it's included....but yes. Good catch.
