Antenna Adapters: Fakra Z Female to Motorola DIN Socket Connector Cable 15cm 6 inch for Car Stereo Audio HD Radio Head Unit CD Media Player Receiver

I love pretty much everything about my Tesla Model 3, EXCEPT for the radio options. Streaming radio is great, but we live in a canyon here in southern California, and cell reception is spotty. I needed to figure out a way to get satellite radio installed – not only to resolve the reception issues around the house, but also to be able to listen to Howard Stern and MLB game play by play broadcasts.

I had been looking forever for a Model 3 antenna adapter so that I could hook up
the Sirius XM FM direct adapter to a portable satellite radio unit, and this Bingfu Universal Vehicle Car Stereo FM AM Radio Antenna Adapter Cable (along with its reverse gender counterpart) worked perfectly.

May be too big to fit standard antenna jack.

When using the connector in my car, the plug would not fit into a standard antenna jack. It’s too big; since the connector is built into the actual plug. The description does not mention this, so beware. I am returning mine and using the adapter that has a length of wire in between the Fakra connector and the antenna plug, as this will fit into the antenna jack as I need it to.

I’ve also created a detailed explanation of the process I used for installing SiriusXM Satellite Radio in a Tesla Model 3.

If you are in the same boat, and own a Tesla Model 3 or any vehicle that you are looking to add the option of Sirius Satellite Radio to, you can purchase the Bingfu Universal Vehicle Car Stereo FM AM Radio Antenna Adapter Cable through Amazon for $6.99. It is also PRIME eligible. The Bingfu Car Antenna Adapter Car Stereo FM AM Radio Antenna Adapter Connector, is also available through Amazon for $6.99, and is PRIME eligible.

If you found my review of the Adapter Cable or my review of the Adapter Connector helpful in your decision on purchasing either of these products, please give me a vote. This helps me find out which products to continue reviewing.
