    Evening everyone, & Merry Christmas to you all!

    Here's my problem, after 7 years my XM antenna has gotten so bad that you can't hardly listen to it.
    I bought a "Terk by Audiovox XMICRO2 XM Mini Roof Mount Antenna" to replace the one in the shark fin. This seemed to be the antenna everyone on here has been getting. I decided this week would be a great one to pull in the Prius to the basement and fix a couple of on going issues while the world was quiet for the holidays.
    I mounted the antenna, ran the cable up to the front, dis-assembled the dash, and pulled the radio so I could get to the cable plug- the cable plugs don't match! The blue plug is the one from Toyota, the pink one is what came on my new antenna. Is there some type of adapter I can get to deal with this, or have I bought the wrong thing?

    I tried searching back through the old post, but any adapters mentioned don't look like what i need.
    Help me please!

    There are various adapters that will solve this. I suggest you call Crutchfield and see if they have the right adapter. I know they sell an adapter in the opposite direction: Stock OEM XM antenna to new radio.
