picked up the highlander yesterday only to find the antenna mounted behind the rearview mirror high up on the glass....looks a million times better than the dash mount. The service manager said he had never seen one before, it's just what came in the box.

That's awesome! I wish mine had been mounted there. Enjoy!

Also had dealer-installed Sirius in my new HL and found the antenna high up on the glass behind the mirror. You don't even know it's there! They pulled nav unit straight out...none of this remove the seat, dash, steering wheel stuff.
Apparently, there is a specific training module for the service techs on these installations. Ask to make sure your dealer has someone who's been through it. Mine (Brian Bemis, DeKalb IL) did, and I'm very pleased!

Received my Highlander with dash antenna. Not good.
Took back to dealer and they installed same roof mount antenna for me as process described for Toyota 4-Runner.
Date is June 18th and so far all is ok with roof mount antenna. Dealer made it right for me and removed dash antenna.
Hope you did ok with yours.
I have in-dash radion with XM. Prefer Sirius but time will tell with the merger of XM by Sirius. Prices are due to fall to better pricing structure.
#11 of 16 What hardware comes from the factory?

The highlander I just purchased came from the factory with XM, and I was told that I cannot change it. My wife and I both have Sirius, so this is a sticking point for me. I know that there is an adpater I can buy, but why can't I just get the right Sirius hardware installed from the factory? Any thoughts are appreciated.

Both XM and Sirius are available either from the factory, or as a dealer-installed option. Don't let them tell you differently. I had zero problems when I asked for Sirius. Brian Bemis Toyota in DeKalb, IL was my dealer...not sure if this is convenient for you or not, but they're up on their stuff.
I suppose a worst-case scenario would be to take the XM hardware and wait a few months until you can choose stations from either company now that the merger is complete, but you shouldn't have to settle for that.

Hello - My wife owns a 2007 Toyota 4Runner with a Kenwood installed TV/ DVD/CD/AM/FM/NAVIGATION SYSTEM. We can no longer receive TV reception because of the digital changes. Does anyone know where and how much would it cost to have the satellite receiver installed, and if I have to subscribe to Direct TV / AT&T or Dish TV?
#15 of 16 Sirius for 2006 Highlander Hybrid
Sep 07, 2009 (4:19 am)
Anyone try this solution to adding Sirius to the factory head unit of a 2006 Highlander Hybrid with nav? If so, can you post a picture of the nav screen tuning Sirius. If not, does it look like it would work?
