Both units integrate with the MFD on the 2G Prius. Dunno about the
classic. I haven't tried either one yet, but I'm planning on getting the
Sirius unit before the end of the year.

Thanks for those links.

Any idea on whether installation of one of these units impacts Toyota's
overall warranty on the car?

I would be really surprised if they did. 1) they're the same units that
Toyota uses in their cars (Prius or otherwise) and 2) car stereo
installers wouldn't be in business for very long if installing a new
stereo voided the warranty.

 Sorry if this is a dupe post, my browser crashed on me.

As a factory option, satelite radio is not listed for the 2004-? Prius.
 However, you can buy the parts for the Solara, and they will work fine
in your Prius and will integrate with the Prius' touch screen.

The 3rd party sellers will include Prius-specific installation
instructions (paper or video) to help you with a DIY install.  But, you
could also use your dealer or your favorite audio installer to do the
work for you.  If you buy the part directly from your Toyota parts
department, call around to different dealers for pricing and check
their websites for discount coupons.

for XM:



your favorite Toyota parts department:  ask for the Solara XM radio
kit, part number PT546-06040

one known Prius-friendly Toyota dealer has posted the installation
instructions for the Toyota XM kit, and is offering it for sale here:

for Sirius:

According to the thread at:

The Toyota Sirius kit for the Solara also works with the Prius.  Part
numbers:  PTS31-00051 (cable), and PTS31-00050 (Receiver)
