A Brief History

Ever since XM Satellite Radio signed up its first subscriber in 2001, Pioneer and XM have been working constantly to create better satellite radio receivers. We imagined

a radio that works not only in a vehicle, a home, or an office, but something you can take with you virtually anywhere you go. Now we have it: introducing AirWare®, a “go anywhere” truly portable satellite radio receiver.

With your AirWare, you can:

listen to live XM programming at home, in your car, in your office and now virtually anywhere outdoors (page 17). XM subscription required*.

use the exclusive satellite radio memory mode feature “MY XM” to easily save up to five hours of the most current XM programming for listening at another time or where live signal reception may be limited (page 20).

program your AirWare to store fresh XM programming at a specific time every day (page 21), and personalize it to suit your lifestyle (page 22).

About XM

One big idea can change everything. And XM Satellite Radio is one big idea: Radio to the Power of X®. America’s most popular satellite radio service offers digital channels of sheer variety: music, sports, talk, comedy, drama, news, traffic and weather, kids programming, and more. All XM original programming music channels are 100 percent commercialfree, and XM’s instant traffic and weather channels provide the most comprehensive, in-depth information on traffic incidents, delays, and road conditions available on radio. These services are available for a low monthly subscription, and additional devices may qualify for a reduced subscription fee through the XM Family Plan.*

*XM subscription required for reception of XM service. Not available in Alaska or Hawaii. Satellite radio reception depends on the ability of the antenna to receive/record a signal. The signal may not be available in buildings or if obstructed (e.g.,

Receiving the XM signal

Turn your AirWare on by pressing the power button. You should be able to hear channel 1, the XM Preview Channel. If you do not, and the screen displays “NO SIGNAL,” try moving your AirWare’s antenna to another location. Make sure the antenna points south, either outdoors or through a window. If the “NO SIGNAL” message persists, refer to “Aiming the home antenna” (page 30).

Please read the TIP below the illustration for optional setup and activation procedure information.

Aim antenna

TIP: Establishing a good signal environment in the home or office setup is highly desirable, but this is not the only way you can receive the XM signal. As an option, you can refer to “Using AirWare In Your Vehicle” (page 31) and continue this setup and activation process with your AirWare installed

in a vehicle.

15

Activating Your AirWare

Turn the dial to highlight channel 0, and press the dial in to select it. You should see an 8-character XM Radio ID in the display. (The XM Radio ID should also be on your

AirWare’s package and under the battery.) Write the ID here:

The XM Radio ID does not use the letters I, O, S, and F.

Activate your XM Satellite Radio service by contacting XM at http://activate.xmradio.com or by calling 1.800.XM.RADIO (1.800.967.2346). You will need the XM Radio ID and a major credit card.

XM will send a signal from the satellites to activate the full channel lineup. Activation normally takes 10 to 15 minutes, but during peak busy periods, you may need to keep your AirWare on for longer to complete the activation process. When you can access the full channel lineup on your AirWare, you’re done!

Go Ahead!

Rotate the dial to preview a list of channels. When you find one you’re interested in, press the dial in to tune to that channel.

Saving favorite channels into presets

Your AirWare can store up to 30 of your favorite channels as presets. The presets are organized into three banks

(A, B, or C) that each contain 10 presets.

TO SAVE A CHANNEL INTO A PRESET:

1. Tune to the channel using the dial or by entering the channel number.

2. Press the “pre/dir” button until “PRESET A,” “PRESET B,” or “PRESET C” appears in the display.

3.Press and hold a

number key to save that channel into that preset. For example, by pressing and holding the “3” key, you can save channel 45 into the “A-3” preset. Use the “0” key for the tenth preset.

TO RECALL A PRESET:

1.Press the “pre/dir” button until “PRESET A,” “PRESET B,” or “PRESET C” appears in the display.

2.Press the number key corresponding to your desired preset. In the example, press the “3” key and your AirWare should tune to channel 45.

You can use the preset banks to organize your channels in different ways. You might want to store your favorite channels in bank A, and someone else’s favorite channels in bank B. Or store music channels in one bank, news and talk channels in another.

Storing song information in memory

Ever hear a song and later forget the artist’s name or song title? Let your AirWare remember for you.

TO STORE A SONG’S INFORMATION IN MEMORY: Press and release the “memo” button while the song or program is playing. Your AirWare will beep to confirm.

TO RECALL A SONG’S INFORMATION FROM MEMORY: Press and hold the “memo” button until your AirWare beeps and you see “Memory Recall” in the display. If you have stored more than one song’s information, you can rotate the dial to view each entry.

Your AirWare can hold up to 20 entries, after which any new entry replaces the oldest entry in memory.

TuneSelect™: Always find your favorite songs or artists

If you can’t get enough of a certain artist or song,

your AirWare can tell you when it’s being played on any XM channel.

1.Press the “menu” button and choose the “TuneSelect” option.

2.Choose either “Select by Song” or “Select by Artist.” “Select by Song” finds a song or program by its title; “Select by Artist” searches using the artist’s name.

3.When you hear one of your favorite songs or artists, press in and hold the dial. Your AirWare will beep and flash “Song Selected” or “Artist Selected” on the display. This signals that your chosen song title or artist name is saved in the TuneSelect list. The list holds up to 20 entries (either artist names or song titles); when the list is full, any new entry replaces the oldest song title or artist in the list.

4.When any song or artist on the list is currently playing on any other XM channel, your AirWare will beep and flash “Artist/Song Found” on the screen. Switch to that channel by pressing in the dial.

5.You may erase individual song titles or artists from the list, or all the songs and artists. Using the “menu” button and dial, choose the “TuneSelect” option and then select either “Erase All” or “Erase Some.” Follow the instructions on your AirWare’s display.

2. “MY XM” holds up to five hours of programming. Press either the “ ” or “” button to skip to the previous or to the next song.

3.You can also rotate the dial to view a list of the stored artists and songs. Simply highlight an

artist with the dial, then press the dial in to listen to it.

4.To return to LIVE listening, press the “mode” button again.

Scheduling a session

You can set your AirWare to store XM programming at a specific time using the “MY XM” Time-shifting Memory Mode.

1.Press the “menu” button and use the dial to select “MY XM.”

2.Select “Schedule MY XM.”

3.You can schedule up to two sessions. Choose “Session 1” or “Session 2.”

4.Rotate the dial to change and press the dial in to fill in the “How Often?,” starting time, ending time, and channel fields. The “How Often?” option allows you to activate the session “Once,” “Every Day,” or “Off” (postponing until another time).

TIP: You can use the number buttons to enter the channel number. You can also use the up, down, and XM buttons on the remote to enter time and make selections.

5. Set up the second session, if you desire.

The combined time

for both sessions should not exceed five

hours in one day and

the sessions may not overlap each other.

Your AirWare will advise

you if either condition occurs, and will give you another chance to schedule the sessions.

6. Turn off your AirWare. When the session starts, the display will show “Session 1 (or 2) Recording.” If your AirWare is already on when the session is supposed to start, AirWare skips the session and does not interrupt your listening. When the session starts, it writes over the oldest stored programs first, ensuring that you’re always listening to the freshest programming.

Important!: You can only store a session if your AirWare is turned off and plugged into the home stand, with the AC adaptor connected and receiving power. You must connect the home antenna to receive the XM signal.

TIP: If you set the alarm to turn on your AirWare before a session is scheduled to start, that session could be cancelled if the AirWare is on and not off to begin the session.

7.To erase the stored content, choose the “Clear MY XM” option under the “MY XM” menu. All previously recorded content can no longer be accessed.

2.Select “Line Out Level.” Your AirWare can detect when you’re using the FM transmitter or cassette adaptor and will make the appropriate changes to the settings.

3.Rotate the dial to change the audio level. Push the dial in to confirm.

4.When you’re done, press the “menu” button until you return to normal operation.

Changing display information

Scrolling text format

22

23

TO CHANGE THE APPEARANCE OF THE SCREEN, press the “menu” button and select “Change Display.” You can change the brightness and contrast, set how long the backlight remains on, flip the screen between positive (black characters on white background) or negative (white characters on black background) modes, and set the way the Stock Ticker and Info Extras appear on the screen.

Make any FM radio an XM radio

Your AirWare contains a built-in FM transmitter that sends the XM audio signal to any nearby FM radio—home stereo, boombox, car radio, or marine radio.

1.Turn on your FM radio and turn off your AirWare. Unplug any headphone or audio cable from your AirWare’s headphone jack and any audio cables connected to the home docking station or vehicle docking station.

2.You need to find an FM frequency that is not being used by any commercial FM station. Tune your FM radio to the following frequencies:

88.1, 88.3, 88.5, 88.7, 88.9, 106.7, 106.9, 107.1, 107.3, 107.5, 107.7, and 107.9.

Note which frequency has no FM station or the least amount of interference.

3.Turn on your AirWare.

4.Using the “menu” button and the dial, select “Set FM Frequency.”

5.Rotate the dial to highlight the FM frequency you found in step 2. Press the dial in to select that frequency.

6.You should now hear XM programming on your FM radio. If the sound isn’t clear or you hear noise or static, try another FM frequency. If you’re traveling, you may need to retune periodically; this is due to the differences in signal strength of local FM stations and is not a problem associated with your AirWare.

NOTE: Wireless FM sound quality may vary dependant on reception conditions.

TIP: When you plug headphones, a cassette adapter, or an audio cable into the headphone jack, your AirWare automatically turns off the FM transmitter.

TIP: In the rare situation that you cannot find an open

FM frequency, consult a professional car audio installer and request information on the XM FM Direct Adaptor.

25

Stock Ticker

With your AirWare, you can track up to 20 stock symbols and see their prices and movements right on the screen.*

TO ADD A STOCK SYMBOL:

1.Using the “menu” button and dial, select “Stock Ticker.”

2.Rotate the dial to highlight “Add Stocks” and press the dial in to select.

3.Rotate the dial to add each letter of the desired stock symbol. Press the dial in after choosing each letter.

(Your AirWare has a list of more than 9,000 stock symbols, and will not only help you complete each entry but prevents you from entering incorrect symbols.)

4.When you’ve entered all your desired stock symbols, press the “menu” button several times (or simply

wait a few seconds) until your AirWare returns to normal operation.

5.Press the “display” button until you see “Stocks”

and a scrolling ticker across the bottom of the screen. This display mode only works when you’re listening to “LIVE” programming.

TO ERASE some or all of the stock symbols, use the “menu” button and dial to select “Stock Ticker,” then to select “Erase Stocks.” Follow the directions on your AirWare’s screen.

Info Extras

XM Satellite Radio will broadcast information such as sports scores and other features from time to time. To see what’s available, press the “menu” button and

select “Info Extras.” Simply follow the instructions on the display to select which Info Extras you’re interested in.

To view your chosen Info Extras, press the “display” button until you see the Info Extras items at the bottom of the screen. You can also affect how you view Info Extras by selecting the “Change Display” option in the menu.

*Quotes are provided by ComStock, Inc. and cover most stocks listed on the NYSE, AMEX, or NASDAQ. Market information is delayed by approximately 25 minutes.

Direct Tune: Select channels faster

Normally as you rotate the dial, you can preview what’s playing on other XM channels before you push the dial in to select a channel. To automatically tune to the channel without pressing the dial, you can set the following option:

1.Use the “menu” button and dial to select “Channel Access.”

2.Select “Direct Tune.”

3.Select “Direct Tune On.” (To return to the factory default method, select “Direct Tune Off”).

Setting time features

XM automatically sets the minutes of your AirWare’s built-in clock. You can adjust the hours by time zone, choose

12or 24-hour formats, and choose whether Daylight Savings Time is used in your area.

Your AirWare also has a sleep timer and an alarm. You can set the sleep timer to shut off your AirWare automatically after 15 minutes or up to an hour. The alarm turns on

your AirWare at a certain time; you can choose to be alerted by a beep or by XM programming.

Important!: If you use your AirWare in your vehicle, you can choose whether your ignition key automatically powers

on your AirWare. Choose the “Vehicle Mode” menu, and then the “Auto On/Off”. Set to “On” to turn AirWare on or off with the ignition key. Set this option to “Off” if your AirWare is connected to power that is always live; you must then use AirWare’s power button to turn it on or off.

For vehicles with power outlets that are always powered, we recommend that you use the “Delayed Power OFF” feature. This avoids draining your vehicle battery if your AirWare is left on.

26

27

Skipping channels

You can simplify the list of channels that you see when you rotate the dial. To skip over a channel:

1.Use the “menu” button and dial to select “Channel Access.”

2. Choose the “Channel

Skip/Add” option.

3.You will see a list of channels. There is a

“+” or a “-“ in front

of each channel. To skip a channel, highlight that channel and

press the dial in to

change the “+” to “-.” To add a channel, change the “-“ to a “+.”

4.When you’re done, press the “menu” button twice

(or do nothing for 15 seconds) until your AirWare returns to normal operation.

TIP: You can still tune to any channel by entering the channel number or by pressing a preset. Skipping a channel does not remove it from use.

TIP: This should not be used for “parental control.” To completely block access to any XM channel, contact XM Listener Care at 1.800.XM.RADIO (1.800.967.2346).

Returning to factory defaults

You can return your AirWare to its factory-installed format. Be careful: This feature erases all settings, including

Stock Ticker, display options, audio options, channel skip/add, Info Extras, and anything stored in “MY XM.”

1.Use the “menu” button and dial to select “Set Factory Defaults.”

2.Select “Yes” to restore your AirWare to the factory settings.

Using AirWare At Home

Turn off your AirWare and your audio system. Connect your AirWare to your audio system in either way illustrated below.

If you use the home docking station and connect it to a stereo, you must plug in the AC adaptor and home antenna. Your AirWare’s audio output will not work if these are not connected.

If you attach your AirWare to powered speakers, adjust the audio level using the speakers’ volume control.

TIP: If you hear nothing, try adjusting the volume controls located on your AirWare. If there does not appear to be power, check all connections and make sure all plugs are inserted completely.

28

29

Aiming the home antenna

Your AirWare can help you aim the home antenna to pull in the strongest signal available.

1.Using the “menu” button and dial, choose “Antenna Aiming.”

2.Slowly turn and tilt the antenna. The signal bars on the display will change. Find the position that gives at least two bars on either “satellite” or “terrestrial.”

3.The antenna aiming screen remains as long as it’s needed to help you position the antenna. When you’ve found the best position, press the “menu” button to return to normal operation.

NOTE: Satellite radio reception depends on the ability of the antenna to receive/record a signal. The signal may not be available in buildings or if obstructed (e.g., by mountains, trees, bridges, etc.).

Using AirWare In Your Vehicle

Because every vehicle is different, we can only provide some general guidelines. If you need help, consult a professional installer.

1.Decide which method (cassette adaptor, wireless FM transmitter, or wired connection) is best for your vehicle and location.

2.Always do a trial run before installing anything permanently. Temporarily connect all power, audio, and antenna lines. Make sure that you receive the XM signal and that you hear XM programming through your vehicle’s audio system. You must have

your vehicle antenna plugged in to the docking station to receive the signal.

TIP: Your AirWare battery will charge in the vehicle docking station only while the AirWare power is turned ON. Please refer to “Other Things You Should Know” (page 37) for additional information regarding charging the AirWare battery.

Use the CASSETTE ADAPTOR if your vehicle’s audio system has a built-in cassette player.

31

The WIRELESS FM TRANSMITTER is the easiest and quickest way to hear XM programming in your vehicle. Simply set your FM radio and your AirWare to the same frequency. Signal quality, however, may not be as good as other methods.

Placing the antenna

Your XM antenna should be mounted on the vehicle’s metallic roof, at least 6" from any window or sunroof. It can be placed in the front, middle, or rear of the roof.

(Two optional locations)

Avoid crimping, twisting, or chafing the XM antenna cable. Try to use existing holes, body grommets, and other wiring channels.

If the vehicle is a hardor soft-top

convertible, you may mount the antenna on the metal trunk lid. It should be at least 4" from the rear window. Ensure that the antenna and cable don’t interfere with the opening or closing of the convertible top and the trunk lid.

TIP: If you route the antenna cable through the trunk seal, use the lowest part of the weather seal. This should minimize any water leaks.

TIP: If you use your AirWare’s wireless FM transmitter, mount the XM antenna as close to your vehicle’s FM antenna as possible. The FM antenna may be a wire or metallic strip embedded in the windshield or rear window.

TIP: Don’t install the XM antenna inside your vehicle or on a nonmetallic surface. Doing so will likely degrade the signal and you will probably experience more signal interruptions.

NOTE: Satellite Radio reception depends on the ability of the antenna to receive/record a signal. The signal may not be available in buildings or if obstructed (e.g., by mountains, trees, bridges, etc.).

33

Mounting your AirWare on the dash

We’ve included three types of mounts to help you install your AirWare in your vehicle’s interior.

FLUSH MOUNT: Attach the included adhesive pad to the back of your AirWare’s vehicle docking station. Stick the vehicle docking station onto a flat surface in

your vehicle, preparing the surface as described below. Do not install the mount on a leather surface. Doing so could permanently damage the surface.

VENT MOUNT: Assemble the vent mount as shown. Find a horizontal air vent that is strong enough to hold the weight of your AirWare and its docking station. Clip the vent mount into the vent.

SWIVEL MOUNT: Find a suitable location; the mount uses a strong adhesive and you’ll have difficulty repositioning it after installation. Do not install this mount on a leather surface. Doing so could permanently damage the surface. Make sure the air temperature is at least 60°F.

1.Clean the mounting surface with the enclosed surface preparation kit. Allow to air-dry.

2.Clean the same surface with the alcohol prep pad. Allow to air-dry.

3.You may warm the adhesive pad using a hair dryer or the vehicle’s defroster. Place the swivel mount accurately since it will bond on the first try.

4.For best results, do not touch or apply any pressure to the vehicle mount for 72 hours.

To remove the swivel mount, first try lifting the adhesive pad with your fingers or a spoon. You may warm it with a hair dryer for 2-3 minutes to help soften the adhesive. Remove any leftover adhesive from the dash surface by rubbing with your finger, or you can use a mild cleaner as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer.

Warning: AirWare should be placed in your vehicle where it will not interfere with the function of safety features, e.g., deployment of airbags. Failure to correctly place AirWare may result in injury to you or others if the unit becomes detached during an accident and/or obstructs the deployment of an airbag.

Using AirWare On The Go

Your AirWare contains a built-in antenna that works best when your AirWare receiver is upright. Use the belt clip to hold your AirWare in the proper position; laying your AirWare down flat may weaken reception.

TIP: If you carry your AirWare in a bag or use it while exercising, you can lock the buttons and dial and prevent something from accidentally pressing the buttons. Press and hold the “mute/pause/lock” button until you see the lock indicator in the display. To unlock the controls, press and hold the “mute/pause/lock” button until the lock indicator disappears.

TIP: The belt clip doubles as a table stand; just pull out the back leg.

TIP: You can plug the AC or cigarette lighter adaptor directly into the bottom of your AirWare.

34

35

Signal reception guidelines

Your AirWare’s antenna should have an unobstructed view of the XM satellites in the southern sky. In large cities, XM also has a network of ground repeaters to help increase the signal coverage.

Other Things You Should Know

Care

You should be able to take your AirWare along with you during most of your daily activities. Still, you should remember:

Your AirWare is not waterproof. Avoid splashing it with liquids and never submerge it.

Take your AirWare with you when you leave your vehicle, especially on a hot day. Not only can you continue to enjoy XM programming, but you’ll also prolong the

life of your AirWare’s case, display, and battery.

If your AirWare gets dirty, wipe the case with a soft cloth lightly moistened with water, then wipe dry with another cloth. Avoid chemicals such as paint thinner, alcohol, or abrasive cleansers.

Important battery information—please read

Your AirWare’s battery should be charged before you use the radio. The amount of charge is indicated by the battery level meter in your AirWare’s display. When you’re charging the battery, you will see . When the battery is exhausted, you will see .

When you use your AirWare for the first time, charge the battery until the meter indicates it’s fully charged . Then use your AirWare until the battery is exhausted. This charge/discharge cycle calibrates the battery level meter so that it accurately reports the state of the battery.

Your battery performs best when used and charged in an ambient temperature of between 50°F to 90°F (10°C

to 32°C). Do not leave your AirWare inside a hot vehicle or in direct sunlight.

Batteries gradually wear down and require longer charging times. When a battery no longer holds its charge, you should purchase a new battery. Always use authorized batteries and power adaptors. Replacement batteries and power adaptors can be ordered online at www.xmradio.com.

To prevent injuring yourself or damaging your AirWare, do not disassemble, crush, or puncture the battery. Never allow metal to touch the battery terminals.

Your AirWare’s rechargeable battery should be disposed of properly and may need to be recycled. Contact your local recycler for details. Never dispose of batteries in a fire

or in water as they may explode.

To remove the battery, follow the steps as shown. Use the clear tab to help you pull the battery out.

36

37

TIP: Both the home and vehicle power adaptors can be used independently from the home docking station and vehicle docking station, plugging directly into the AirWare power connector. This feature provides a convenient alternative for battery charging and powered operation when traveling or for using your AirWare away from home.

Optional Accessories (sold separately)

We’re always developing useful and clever accessories

for your AirWare. Check out www.xmradio.com or visit your favorite electronics retailers frequently.
