I purchased this to install alongside a compatible Kenwood receiver and an adapter cable. I have installed car stereos before, and am good at following directions.

1) Build quality - Bad (1/5): The PIA is made out of cheap, fragile plastic. The kind of plastic that gets light-colored markings on it from fingernails. It weighs only a couple ounces and feels like it will fall apart. I was terrified to carry it around as a drop would probably shatter it. Once the protective cable cover is snapped on (useless part, see "design" below) it is almost impossible to remove, especially without damaging the crappy housing. This is bad because according to other reviews online, the PIA is going to have to be reprogrammed regularly.

2) Design quality - Terrible (0/5):
- Neither of the little boxes have indicator lights, beeps, screens, or anything. There's no way to tell if they're hooked up properly, if the PIA is flashed properly, if either are powered, if either has power, or what part isn't working (and believe me, something will not be working).
- The 34-pin connector into the PIA is the strangest design I think I have seen. Wiring harnesses are everywhere in cars, I am unsure why Audiovox chose not to trust a standard harness clip on this unit and instead opted for a loose-wires-with-secondary-outer-seal design. It doesn't make sense reading it here, but it's no better after seeing it. Basically you plug in the 34-pin adapter cable, plug in the tuner module, then snap a plastic cover in place over the whole thing. It's a terrible design, barely clips on, and is a bear to take off. Total head-scratcher.
- The USB hookup (which is also recessed with the 34-pin connector, but not sealed like the 34-pin connector is) is straight into a port soldered onto a circuit board.

Works fine with the Jensen VM9424 with the required adapter cable. The adapter cable makes the installation a plug and chug operation. No need to splice wires or anything such.

I was able to mount the antenna ontop the unit right next to the GPS and there's no interferrance whatsoever.

As for flashing, running windows7 64bit and had no trouble getting the firmware to run and do its thing.

Quality wise - what can I say ? This is going to be tucked away from site so who cares what it looks like? I made sure to electrical tape all the connectors to give it added grip. I placed the system box and receive in the footwell of the vehicle and have the antenna ontop the receive unit. Cords are plenty long enough for this.

Yes, this would've been very nice if it were integrated with the receiver unit. But get over it - it's not, and you can only make do with what you got. In this case, the XM now has the appearance of being fully integrated and I'm quite happy with it.

Edit: Unit has been working great for almost a year. I love this thing. No problems whatsoever with XM. Appears those who have had trouble with the unit either got a bad one or wouldn't be able to put together a two piece jigsaw puzzle.

This product works when it is installed BUT it is made very cheaply, and must be placed in a location where it will absolutely not be bumped jarred or rattled, as the mini usb style connector which connects the large protocol box to the xm radio portion and antenna, will become dislodged and you will get a "check xm tuner" report on your head unit. This happened to me sometimes when it worked fine upon stopping vehicle but on re-start I had to disconnect and reconnect the thing. I wish there were other options for my particular radio unit but there is not. I had to order yet another one of these in less than a year due to the plug in receptacle breaking off of the main board and being unable to even solder it back. It is cheaply made but not cheaply priced and those two things make it suck. I have to give it a three star rating based on the limited availability of other options, but trust me, if there were any I would jump on them. My wife's Sirius tuner is solid metal and durable plastic and has never had an issue, I wish I could say the same for mine and I should just order a third one now for when this second one breaks. I downgraded this to a two star. It sucks. The connectors constantly work their way loose and I get the "Check XM Tuner" thing way way too often. Boo on you for making something that feels like a lead painted chinese exported baby toy from the Family Dollar. Boo.

As far as I was able to tell, the firmware/driver required to program this product for a particular head end is not compatible with Windows 7 (64 bit). The programming _tool_ downloaded and installed just fine, but the hardware itself was not recognized when plugged into a USB port.

No idea how this works once it's installed, but I couldn't get past step one with the operating system I'm using.

I would have given this a five star rating had they included the usb programming cable with the brown box of parts that were supposed to make up this kit. Because of the missing cable, I had the choice of returning it or heading to Fry's and paying $12 for a usb cable kit that included the hard to find mini usb b type plug. I opted for Fry's because I wanted it installed today.

With the cable taken care of, the rest of the programming / install went smoothly. Note, the programming software will work fine with Windows 8, in either x86 or x64 flavors. I actually did the programming on an x64 Windows 8.1 box. No issues whatsoever.

As to the antenna, I pulled the third brake light out and ran the antenna wire down through there, into the headliner, and then down the rear passenger door weather stripping. From there I ran it through the foot well forwards and then up the side of the fuse panel on the front passenger side. When reinstalling the brake light, I did add some black silicone caulking (I have a black truck) around the wire to ensure that I wouldn't experience any water leakage.

The rest of the parts just plugged in, and I used some 3M tape (3M VHB Heavy Duty Mounting Tape) to tape both the PIA and tuner behind the glove box. Registration was quick, and 5 minutes later the system was activated and receiving the full channel lineup.
