    Well Centrafuse works with radio xtreme you don't even need radiator for it to work. Its plug and play so you also don't need to worry about drivers. Probably the easiest solution to go with. Here is the link you can get it from.

    Is that website reliable? Meaning can I trust ordering it from there, or is there somebody in the US that sells them?

    They are reliable, I ordered from there and I got it. Didn't take as long as I thought it would. It does go through customs so it does cost a little extra for shipping. I think it took me about a week or 2 to get it.

    I don't use the remote either not that it would do much good its stuck behind the dash where a ir signal wouldn't reach. You can tie into the cars antenna with that unit, the radio has plugins for ant. in, audio out, and usb. Like all usb radio solutions you have to tie into a line-in on your sound card.

    Just FYI:

    1) "You may connect the dipole antenna to the “Antenna-In”, spread the antenna to a T-like shape for best reception." -Doesn't sound like it would work with a normal car ANT.

    2) You do have to connect the audio out to the sound cards line-in. Lame! This is not the case with the Griffin RadioShark USB.

    I am sure that you can use an adapter to connect the antenna to the stock car antenna.

    Sure you could attach the wires, but I believe the antenna technology is different and would therefore not give you the best reception. This device wants a "dipole" antenna (like those dual-row, plastic-covered, flexible wires that making a big "T"). I do not think a normal car antenna is a dipole antenna. A wire of any type may help reception, but for the best reception I would think you would need a tuner that had a connection meant for the type of antenna technology used in car antennas (one wire shielded by the other with a certain impedance between them). On the other hand, I don't know much about antennas, so I could be completely wrong... I tried to Google for some info but did not turn up much.
