Default XM with Garmin 7212

Do you need a stereo or can you hook XM up directly to Garmin 7212?

If you get the Garmin GXM 51 or 52 for weather and radio, you need both a stereo head unit and the 7212. The XM radio is controlled through the 7212, but plays through your stereo.

If you just get an XM radio antennae and tuner, you will still need a stereo head unit.
