I have a 2010 Titan Pro-4x with RF system. I am looking to install a new touch screen head unit. I would like to try and keep the OEM microphone and XM antenna. Is this possible to do?

I understand that I need to get a new XM tuner. However these come with an antenna. I would like to keep it as stock looking as possible. Can't I just use the antenna that is already on the truck?

Same goes with the microphone that is located in the headliner panel. If I can't use OEM mic, is there a way to wire the new mic where the old one was without running the wiring from the head unit all the way into the headliner?

I'm in the same situation. I have a 2014 Pro-4x CC with RF system. From what I know of audio/head units, you should be able to keep the antenna and the mic. They are simply inputs to the headunit. Worst case scenario, somehow the connectors are different (shouldn't be) and you would have to splice or solder the wires for the connectors on the headunit that you purchase. However, connectors for these components in automobile audio are standard across the industry and are plug and play. There are also adapters so that you can utilize your steering wheel controls.

I'm wanting all the same features that I have now in a new device. My stock headunit has been doing weird things. The features that I am wanting is not cheap though, so weighing options.

Best wishes,
Yeti

From what I have found in my research, the bluetooth system is separate from the head unit. Not sure that the wiring is there to have the mic connect up to the new HU. The couple of times that I used the bluetooth in the truck before shutting it off completely, people were having trouble hearing me, so either my mic is crap or the location isn't the best. If you have the time and patience, I would recommend running a new mic to the existing location if you're that set on keeping it looking stock.

Appreciate the feed back. Yes the mic on a bluetooth system now that you say that. I'll have to run the new mic wiring to where the old one is.
