need help installing XM radio

Help! I just bought an XM Commander to put in my '04 GTO and am having problems finding out how to install it. Has anyone added satellite radio with XM modulator? What I'm looking for is the antenna connection where you put the XM modulator in the antenna loop.

There was a post at http://www.newagegto.com documenting a very slick install using the small compartment under the radio. Sorry, though-- don't recall if it was XM or Sirius.

Might be worth a search over there.

I've already bought the XM Commander and was going to install it like I did on the previous car. I never figured it would be this difficult.

Take it back and get one that fits.

I bought a Kenwood unit for my BMW...when it looked like to much of a clusterf*ck to install, I took it back for credit...

This one will fit in the car. I'm just needing a wiring diagram for the stereo (mainly the antenna). I'm needing to know where to install the FM modulator. I've been told that there is a connection in the driver footwell, but that didn't tell me where it is.
