I'm not an expert or even an user of this device, but as far as I know, you don't need any additional hardware to connect this device to your car pc running Centrafuse. All you need is the MJS USB cable that comes with the device (in all adds I scanned); just be sure that this cable is included when you order the device.
Have fun,

I already have the XM module currently hooked to my kenwood head unit. I want to be able to use it so I don't have to pay another subscription to XM. The directed is for AM/FM/HD not XM

Sorry, I misunderstood your question. Your talking about hooking up your XM module: Is this a phyiscal radio module (like the XM radio's sold by SiriusXM) or is it a kind of app loaded in your head unit?
 
In  the first case, the next question will be, how is it connected to your head unit (audio and/or control)? When you want the audio routed to your CarPC, you probably need an additional sound adapter, because the aux input on your CarPC is already occupied by the Directed Radio module.
 
It's  not clear to me if a subscription is bound to one device or multiple devices like e.g. the XM radio and your phone.
Have fun,
Louk.
