A lot of people want to hardwire their Plug and Play Radio. When they tell us that we need to clarify whether they want to hardwire the power (so that there is no need for a cigarette lighter plug) or if they simply want a direct audio connection providing crystal clear sound. We have options for both. But if you have the right vehicle we can provide an all in one solution that is perfect.
We are closing out what we call the “XM5” Aux Input Adapters from PIE. PIE made these years ago to initially support the newer 5 Volt Based XM Plug and Play Radios which is why they are called “XM5 Interfaces.” The XM5 Interfaces connect behind your factory car radio and provide a direct audio and power connection for 5 Volt Sirius and XM Radios. If your Sirius Xm Radio is a Power Connect Radio you will also need this additional plug.
Installation of the XM5 Interface is easy. The hardest part is simply getting behind the radio. If you are comfortable doing that it’s something you can install yourself. Otherwise look for a local car stereo shop. We suggest using Yelp reviews for that.
Here is the best thing about the XM5 Interfaces…they are on closeout for only $29.99. That’s less than half of their original retail price. So they are priced to move. You just have to check to see if your vehicle is compatible. Just look below for your vehicle and be sure to read the product description and compatibility notes.
If your vehicle isn’t compatible or the XM5 Interface is out of stock the next best option would be to hardwire the power with our Power Hardwire Kit and provide an audio connection with the FM Direct Adapter (just make sure your Plug and Play Car Cradle has an FM Output)
