Here is the long and the short of it. In my last car, Sirius wasn't built-in, so I picked up a Sirius Sportster 5 unit. I purchased a vehicle kit for it at the time, and had it professionally installed at a local car radio shop. I have since gotten a new car, but forgot I had the receiver, and forgot to cancel my service. So, I was renewed, and rather than spend eons on the phone with high BP trying to cancel it, I figure I'd hook my parents up with a free year on this unit.
When I sold my car, I only took the receiver itself, and the cradle that attaches it to the window. I do not have the power cord (to hard wire into the vehicle), or the 1/8" jack (I think that's what it is) to wire from receiver to the AUX port, or the antenna.
After some brief Amazon and Crutchfield searching, it appears the Sportster 5 Vehicle kit is no longer available, but there are these odd "generic" kits that allegedly fit.
Not wanting to mess around too much in the interest of time, am I better off buying a compatible antenna, a long-enough cord to attach to the AUX port/receiver, and then let the car shop install whatever they need to power the unit via the car's electric?
Just looking for some suggestions, thanks.--
