Default XM Radio

I have an 06 Accord LX and I want to put in a factory XM radio. The current stock radio does not have this option. If I purchase this radio, what else do I need to do to get it operational, or is it ready to go?

I'll move this to A/V Electronics. The "HAF Help" section is for questions about how to operate the website, as described by sticky postings.

you will need a factory XM antenna, factory antenna cabling, and the factory head unit. if the car doesn't have the XM antenna, you will need to drill a hole in the roof and seal the new antenna to the car.

it would be MUCH cheaper and easier to get an aftermarket unit that has an FM transmitter interface or antenna intercept.
