I will check them out tomorrow and let you know what happens. Any tips on where I should tap the power from?

Here's a diagram that's for 98-99 and newer, the focus could be a tad off (so double-check with a meter!), but should be quite simular if not the same.
Once you find it, get a wire tap at Radio Shack... the draw is small on the Delphi.... The "ground" can usually be off the radio itself, there's a flag connector on the back, just crimp the same size flag connector to the end of the ground wire and you'll have an excellent ground source.
I don't think there is a "Blitzsafe" cable out for the focus yet, but if you really like XM (And you will) and want the best sound, they're worth the investment (adds a line in to your stereo faking itself as a CD changer). I used one of their cables in my Audi, put a Pioneer tuner in the trunk, the Blitzsafe not only gave me audio, but power from the cd-changer connector factory pre-wired in the trunk... made the install take just a couple of minutes! I just hit CD-Changer on my factory deck, and then the XM display comes alive and XM comes out through the speakers! =-)

At any rate, at least I can use it in my car. My only problem now is where to mount it. There are no flat surfaces on my dashboard to us the sticky mount. Any ideas?
