    Hi am getting ready to replace the antenna base for the second time and am wondering if there is a better alternative. These devices are not well documented.

    I have been told the number is 86960-47011. Today toyota refused to give me the part number over the phone. But-heads!. When I look it up, I get different looking parts and it is annoying.

    I have a 2010 third gen Prius with the JVC Satellite system. Any help? Any new developments since hte last posts 33 years ago?

    Just a work-around suggestion till you get it figured out: use XM's streaming app.

    And foot the data charge to Toyota because they’re nice like that.

    I didn't mention this option specifically because stock OEM headunits use different connectors from the traditional push together style like in your link so those aren't a plug-n-play solution for the OP.
