XM radio cables

Recommended Posts

A while back I had my head unit stolen (AVIC-D3). I know it was pretty old, but I loved that thing. My situation is I purchased a refurbished Pioneer XM unit for it prior to getting broken into and I got every channel without paying for a subscription! Pretty sick, a little unethical, but honestly.... what would you do?!?!? I was using if for over a year until my unit got stolen and all my wires were cut and other half is missing. I still have the main unit but I need new wires. Anyone know where I can get only the wires for the unit so I can keep sticking it to "the man"? I think one wire is the standard IP-BUS that has been used for years, but I still think I need the power module.

Wow. I just checked it out and for the same money I could spend on the cables I could but a brand new unit w/cables and swap them out. Any other suggestions? No way in going to pay over $100 for the power cable and the IP BUS.

Don't buy the IP bus from Pioneer lol you should be able find one for less then $20.

You would have to buy the power cable from Pioneer though.

IF it's anything like the USB cable, you can find it for 1/5 the price.

 

$3 usb composite cables from ebay worked for me. $50 for pioneer? lol yeah right.

 

I also laughed at the guy at the car audio shop for trying to get me to pay $30+ for the 3.5mm cable IPBUS.

 

I made my own out of old USB connectors for a motherboard and it worked ALMOST perfectly.

 

It's amazing how much money these companies try to rip us off every chance they get.
