Well - I found the answer to my question - at Crutchfield Electronics. All that is needed are two adapter pieces - Crutchfield parts # 541ISHD11 and 607SCC1 - only about $220.00 plus @ $80.00 installation at BestBuy. Maybe I can learn to like XM!! Or continue to use the JVC FM modulator we used in the old car.

I think I'm gonna pass on this conversion. We'll just use the older portable unit we used in our '04 Accord. I have been using a similar setup in my '05 Silverado, but it only cost @ $130.00 total when I did it. A conversion approaching $300 is too rich for my blood, at least until I win the Powerball Lottery!

It's what I'm gong to do with the portable out of my '06 Accord.
Converting to Sirius is too rich for me too. Pity they just don't come with a choice. Oh well.

I already have two Sirius subscriptions, one for my truck and one of the Accord we traded in (a portable unit), so second sub is discounted. I doubt if there is a discount for one Sirius and one XM subscription, The two don't seem to want to talk to each other - they get to charge more that way!! And Stern is the biggest waste of money in history. Who wants to listen to a bunch of New Yawkas talk about bowel movements, felching, etc. I just don't get it, I guess.

Ive already called sirius/xm and there no way possible of just using the xm unit to get Sirius. sucks when you have a lifetime subscription to Sirius.

If you have the lifetime subscription, it would make sense to convert the in-car unit to Sirius. Talk to the guys at Crutchfield, or maybe even a good tech at Best Buy???

Isn't a "lifetime" only 5 years?
No, it's for the lifetime of the radio, no matter how long it lasts. The catch is, you only get to replace your radio three times. After that, the lifetime subscription is dead.
