How To Subscribe to XM® Radio

Listeners can subscribe by visiting XM® on the Web at www.xmradio.com, or by calling XM’s® Listener Care at (800) 8529696. Customers should have their Radio ID ready; for details, refer to “Display the ID Code”.

Introduction

XM® Satellite Radio is a new and exciting audio experience on your radio dial; it provides you with digital audio programming at the touch of a button. By using two geo-stationarysatellites, XM® Radio provides digital quality sound, with a choice of 100 channels of diverse programming, including music, news, history, sports, and talk.

To make this system available to the motoring public, Audiovox has engineered a state-of-the-artXM® Satellite Radio System, consisting of a Satellite Antenna (purchased separately), a Satellite Radio Receiver Unit (RRU), a Satellite Radio RF Modulator, a Satellite System Control Unit (SCU) and an optional wireless remote control. By using the FM section of any car stereo system, the RF signal information is demodulated and produces the audio output to your existing stereo system speakers. Since XM® Satellite Radio will operate through the FM stereo system, adjustment of the audio functions (volume, tone, balance, etc.) is made by using the controls on the car radio, while selection of the desired audio channel is made using the Satellite System Control Unit (SCU).

How the System Operates

Control of system functions is achieved by the wired SCU, which can be conveniently mounted to the dashboard in a number of configurations. In addition, an optional wireless remote (Audiovox P/N SAT-RC)to control SCU functions is also available. The XM® Satellite Radio signals are received by the antenna and are routed to the RRU, whose

128-6210A

2 of 12

RF output is supplied to the RF Modulator. The RF Modulator, in turn, is capable of transmitting on seven (7) FM frequencies; namely, 88.1MHz, 88.3MHz, 88.5MHz, 88.7MHz, 88.9MHz, 89.1MHz and 89.3MHz. The frequency is selected using the FM band of the existing vehicle radio. (The default FM frequency is 88.5MHz.) Select the FM frequency having the least noise or static, and then use the SCU to choose the XM® channel for your listening pleasure.

1.Liquid Crystal Display (LCD): Presents a display of various system functions, such as channel/category number, type of broadcast, song title, performer(s), advisory/error messages, etc.

2.Down Directional ( ) Button: When momentarily pressed, channel number decreases with each press; when pressed and held, the channel number decreases continuously. Release the button when the desired channel number is displayed. When used in conjunction with the Shift (SFT) button, the MUTE function is enabled.

3.Keypad Buttons 0-9: These buttons are used to directly enter a desired channel number. They are also used when entering and recalling preset channel numbers into memory.

4.Up Directional ( ) Button: When momentarily pressed, channel number increases with each press; when pressed and held, the channel number increases continuously. Release the button when the desired channel number is displayed. When used in conjunction with the Shift (SFT) button, the SCAN function is enabled.

5.Infrared Detector: Provides detection of the infrared control signal transmitted by an optional wireless remote control unit (P/NSAT-RC)for remote operation. Make sure no obstructions are blocking the signal path.

6.Shift (SFT) Button: When momentarily pressed, this button provides access to additional functions, such as audio MUTE, channel SCAN, direct channel access, category select, etc.

7.Power On/Off ( ) Button: Press this button to apply power to the Satellite Radio Receiver. The associated stereo radio must be turned on and off separately using its power switch.

SATELLITE RADIO RECEIVER (RRU)

The RRU is the central data receiving equipment required to process the satellite signals from the external antenna; it contains the processing logic needed to recognize, decode and distribute the incoming program information. The RRU is typically installed under the seat or in the trunk/rear of the vehicle.

SATELLITE RADIO RF MODULATOR

The RF Modulator receives the satellite RF signals from the RRU and

button; then press and hold the Up directional ( ) button to enable the up channel scan function. When enabled, each channel is scanned in the up direction for 10 seconds before moving on to the next active channel. Each channel number appears in reverse image (white-on-black)format. This permits channel preview or introductory sampling of channel programming. Press any button to exit the scan function.

signals on to your existing vehicle’s FM stereo system. So, when your radio is tuned to one of the FM frequencies between 88.1MHz and 89.3MHz, you can enjoy XM® programming. The RF Modulator is typically mounted behind or under the dashboard.

After the system has been properly installed and activated, the system can be powered on in the following manner:

1.Turn on the existing vehicle radio and tune the radio to the selected FM frequencies between 88.1MHz and 89.3MHz; if you are not sure which frequency to select on your existing radio, use the existing radio’s SEEK, SCAN or TUNE function to tune through the frequencies until the satellite signal is played through the speakers.

NOTE: The default FM frequency is 88.5MHz.

2.Enter this frequency into memory using one of the preset buttons on the existing radio, making a note of the FM band and preset number.

SELECTINGCHANNELCATEGORIES

To select a specific group or category of entertainment, proceed as follows:

1.Press the Shift (SFT) button; the first channel number in that category (CH 020 in the “Hits” category, for example) flashes for 5 seconds.

2.While the number is flashing, momentarily press the Up

directional ( ) button.

3.The category will advance to the next higher category (for

example, 040 in the “Rock” category), which will also flash for 5 seconds. If no further advance is made, the category will then remain steady.

4.To select a category in the down direction, repeat step 1

and momentarily press the Down directional (

) button. This

will advance to the next lower category.

 

NOTE: Each category or group is assigned a sequential block of channels. To navigate within a category, enter Shift (SFT)0981 Shift (SFT). When in this mode, switching between different channels within a category, the tuning will automatically wrap around from the last to the first channel in that category orvice-versa.When a new category is chosen, the radio will automatically select the first channel in that category.
