Questions about the Avic Z2

I bought one and had it installed today since the rain cancelled my other install plans, Ill admit i didn't do it cause I REALLY hate electrical work. But I got a few questions about it.

Its installed and has a little black 2"x2" box on my dash im guessing thats for the Navigation??? I also see the mic but what im really intrested in is the XM/Sirous Radio, is everything in the Z2 that i need to run it besides a subscription? A lot of the buttons are locked so I can't use them besides FM/AM and i can't figure out how to punch in navigation as a lot of those buttons are locked out also. Help? lol

No, you need the actual satellite tuner which goes under the dash as well, see the following for all the accessories. Also, allot of the navigation buttons are disabled unless you engage the parking break. If you learn the actual voice commands though, you can do just about all the locked functions while driving from what I've found.

So now that the main head unit is installed and GPS is working, etc. All I gotta do is add the XM tuner box thingy so all they gotta do is plug in a few cables, they don't have to splice/cut/discet the system. So would it be ok to take it to Best Buy to finish the install?

Matt, correct, it's all plug and play once you have the main unit.
