Question installing a fuse tap in a '07 Passat

I recently installed a Kenwood AUX audio device in my Honda Odyssey. I used a fuse tape to help power the device. I tapped into a particular fuse as recommended by the retailer. All is working good.

I recently ordered a SIRIUS KSSRA100 tuner adapter and plan to install it in my 2007 VW passat. It will be installed with the current JVC receiver I have installed now in this VW. I received the SIRIUS tuner and it looks like it has a yellow and black wire that need to be hooked up for power. Some have said to tap into the radios wire harness, but I was hoping I could simply do the same thing as I did with the Honda and use a fuse tap and connect into the fuse box instead to power it as needed.

I think I found this diagram that gives a description of my 2007 Passat fuse box (picture below). Is this about right? If so, which mini fuse should I tap into to help power this SIRIUS adapter? Is there maybe another diagram of what each fuse does?

Those aren't mini fuses they are standard blade fuses.
