    I've posted about this before but the actual product is out now. Does anyone here want to guess if this product (link below) will work on an 04 Prius? I think the overall cost of adding XM would be lower than the Toyota XM tuner. Plus you can add Sirius if that what you're looking for. Check it out here:

    I've called these people before but got no intelligent response. I'll try again on Monday...

    After checking their web site, I see I have an installer of their products near my home. I'll swing by tomorrow and see if they have any in stock, and see if they'd be willing to give it a try, or if they already know if it will work or not.

    So, I finally followed up with the local retailer of the SoundGate product.

    Basically, I'd have to be a test subject for the install to see if it works, as they are unsure if it would. With installation and such, it looks like a savings of only about $60 over what I would pay to coastaletech for the xm unit and then installation at a local car audio shop.

    Since I don't have the funds for either option right now, I'll have to wait for someone else to give it a try.

    I callled and was told that it should work in some fashion. But they were doubtful that artist and song info would be transfered. They too tald me I could "try" it. I did read in a stock report that Toyota may be adding SIRIUS to their line up later this year. That makes sense as both XM and SIRIUS are listed in the AVC-LAN system aboud the Prius.
