I know there have been multiple posts on satellite radio and the FJammer but I can't seem to find a simple direct answer (if there has been one, then I apologize for the redundancy).
Does Sirius work with the Sat capable FJammer? I bought the Sirius Interface and Tuner from Crutchfield to install on my existing OEM HU (haven't received it yet). They said it would work without any problems. But I've read some differing opinions on this forum. I've got a new '08 model so maybe any problems have been fixed?
And, have there been any postings on how to remove the OEM HU with pics?
Haven't been able to find any so far (I'm sure it's not too difficult).

Thanks for the help.

P.S. I've seen all the postings on installing sat radio with an external controller. I'm not looking to do that. I want to control it through my OEM HU.

Search the threads for the TOY-SCC1 adapter for more info. I have the FJammer, Sirius Sportster4 and the adapter, and yes it does work w/ the SAT button on the FJammer.
It toggles through AM/SAT1/SAT2/SAT3. Sounds as good as it did when I had it plugged into the AUX port. My iPod adapter taps into the Sirius adapter, which then plugs into the CD changer port on the back of the FJammer.

I have the sirius kit that is the factory one. If yours plugs up into the back and that is it, then yes it works fine.

I just had the Sirius installed utilizing the factory head unit in my 'o8 FJ and the volume is significantly less than the radio. Sirius and Toyota says there is nothing they can do to correct it. So it looks like I get to add an amp also.

What do you mean by the volume is significantly less (numbers). On average, I have my volume set to 35 for CDs, iPod and Sirius. With all that, I rarely listen to Radio frequencies, but I'll check for comparison (since I do have some set channels).

If you go through the menus in the Sirius receiver there is a control for audio output level. I found mine was at the center of the scale (default I guess) I cranked it to the max output with a noticeable increase in the volume.
