Question Factory Radio with Sat

If you remove the factory head unit on an 09 is the satellite portion a separate unit or built into the factory head unit, as I was discussing aftermarket decks with a sales guy and he said the ones that say sat ready on them and in their screen menus still need the sat signal decoder unit for the new head unit to function?

The factory satellite system consists of the deck and a separate sirius tuner that is located behind the glove box.

If you buy an aftermarket deck, you will need to buy a satellite receiver as well in order to get satellite radio. If you're lucky, you might be able to get an adaptor and re-use the factory antenna but I wouldn't count on it.
