I am getting my ordered Limited Crewmax in a few weeks (hopefully). Will the male "RCA" jack for my SIRIUS work in the female aux of the tundra radio?

The aux in for the Tundra is a female headphone jack, the same type for example that is on an ipod. So if your satellite radio has rca outputs, you would need an rca to male headphone jack adapter.

You can buy that adapter at Radioshack for like $3...sorry, but I just wanted to make sure everyone knew where to get one. That stuff can be hard to find when you go to Best Buy and say "I need a male RCA to male 1/4"". I can imagine the response from the kid "We don't carry RCA -- we haven't had that in like, a year or something."

Also, if the 1/4" input is stereo compatible (which I'm pretty sure it is), you may need a special mono RCA to stereo 1/4".

Last question, then I'll shut up and mind my own business, but does your satelite radio have more than one RCA output? I would think you'd have two outputs, one for each channel, but maybe I'm missing something (I've never had one myself).

Hope that helps.

i didn't know our trucks have 1/4" jacks. i only see the 1/8" jack labeled AUX.

Thanx. I figured it out. You need a 1/8" stereo mini plug to 1/8" stereo mini plug. Found at Radio Shack. Works for Satellite Radios or MP3 players.

No, not all radios have the jack, but my aftermarket Pioneer stereo has one. The Radio Shack near me only had mono connectors. I found my cord at Verizon, it's a cord for handsfree usage.

Hey not to be a dick But I think your truck is satellite compatible I started read the Owner manual {on the crappier of course} to try to figure how to control the six disk in dash changer and read some thing about the satellite controller in the radio But I know nothing about the satellite set up call your dealer He should know
