Hello!<p>I just bought my R last weekend and am getting it fixed up. I love the stereo system (non-navigation), but MUST get my satellite radio connected. Does anyone know where I can get a good auxillary input adapter -or- XM satellite radio interface?<p>Again, 2004 S60R - non navigation, 4-disc in dash changer.<p><br>Thanks a bunch!!!<p>Brad G<br>Atlanta, GA

Not gonna happen at least not easily, just get Volvo Sirius and be done with it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>FM modulated or a real PIA.<br>(Ask on the audio forum)

You can use the USA Spec ipod adapter from Crutchfield (and IPD too I think) to get a line-in aux port, that will do away with the FM modulator end of things. You will still need a Sat radio controller with this method. If it were me I would just get the factory Sirius installed: cleaner better integration, mo better....

Get it from IPD, as they provide a nice (from what I have heard) DVD of the install specific to your vehicle. <p>The adaptor if for the IPod, but has an RCA jack as an aux input build into the unit. If you are handy at Radio Shack, you should be able to rig an output from your radio's aux output into the RCA input on the USA Spec. <p>It's about $150 from IPD. <p>If you need help installing, IM me I may be of <B>some </B>help. It really should only take a couple of hours max. <p>And yes, the Audio Forum will have more info.

Don't think Volvo Sirius works for 2004 (see: <A HREF="http://vparts.autowebaccessories.com/store/volvo-s60-sirius-base-kit-prod126_12459.php" TARGET="_blank">http://vparts.autowebaccessori...9.php</A>. Plus its about $500 self-installed and uses a first gen. (big, ugly) antenna.<p>I'd go USA Spec (I did) or wait for mrg_Ed to market his project (see the top sticky post in this forum).

thanks for all your pointers. I actually have about 8 years installation experience, but Volvos were never my favorite to work on...so I certainly may have some install questions. I would not be too opposed to Sirius (I have it in my boat), but already have several XM radios - and I must have the Opie and Anthony show in the mornings. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!<p>
