I have had my 07 IS350 for 1 year now and just thought about activating the Sat radio. The Nav/ML system has a Sat button that is supposed to toggle between AM/Sat. When I tried to selecting it though I am unable to select Sat radio. Does anyone know if there is supposed to be something activated within the Radio/Nav system in order to select Sat radio so it can then be activated by XM?

Yes, you actually have to have a module installed. I believe the piece is in the neighborhood ofr $400 and installation is about $200 (I'm guessing because I got mine free).

Also you are not limited to XM. You can also get Sirius, although people at the dealership told me they had quality control issues with Sirius.

Thanks

I really appreciate the feedback. I kind of suspected their would be something that required a little extra money. That kind of makes me think I might not want Sat radio bad enough for $600 right now. Thanks again.

I may be wrong, but I don't think it costs nearly that much, nor does the price justify the amount of labor that is required (it seems semi-easy). I looked into this some time last month, and have still put it off, but it looks like something I want to do too.

Here's a real good guide I came across last month when researching this whole XM/Sirius satellite radio thing:

Hope that helps!
