    Yes, the radios are the same. It's how you hook them up that matters.

    Yes, it depends on the connection and your setup.

    Assuming you are hooking it into a car, you need to connect it to your radio via an aux port. If your radio doesn't have aux input, you will need to buy a new radio.

    I just had my new radio with aux input installed yesterday and all I can say is that FINALLY after years of using an FM transmitter, the audio from satellite radio is very good.

    $220 Sony Xplod car stereo with aux input, usb input, blue tooth for wireless connection of cell phone through stereo and music streaming

    $10 for GM antenna adapter

    $60 for GM interface to keep your warning sounds e.g. low fuel, key still in ignition

    $15 for radio housing

    $75 for XM Skydock for your iPod Touch or iPhone

    $55 for installation at Best Buy if you can't do it yourself

    If you don't plan on buying a new car any time soon, absolutely worth upgrading, especially for the hands free phone.
