Installation Basics
Note:
Before installation, your PIA must have the proper radio model
protocol downloaded. Please see an authorized dealer for
programming of your PIA.
When choosing a location to mount the components, care must be taken not
to interfere with any of the vehicles existing systems. Good installation practices should be observed when mounting components to avoid any vibration,
movement or rattling after installation. When routing the cables avoid blocked
passages and any obstructions that could kink, crimp, twist, or chafe the cables.
Components should be secured in place with methods such as Velcro, double
stick foam tape, screws and nuts, cable ties etc. All mounting hardware and
methods are at the discretion of the installer.
Cables should also be secured in place to avoid movement. Care should be taken
not to crimp any of the cables when installing them. And special care should
be taken not to route cables on or near sharp edges that could eventually cut
into the jacket of the cable.
I.nstallation Planning
The PIA should be located within 2-3 feet of the radio due to the cable lengths.
The antenna should be located in an area to insure the cable will reach the tuner
location. Check this prior to installation.
Prior to installation, locate the area where the XM Direct 2 Tuner shall be installed. Typical locations are the glove box or the center console.
Antenna !nstal!atio[f
1. Best reception is achieved with the antenna mounted on the metal
surface of the vehicle roofin the center ofan area with at least 12"x 12"
of surface area and a minimum of 6" from a window or sun roof.
2. If the vehicle has roof racks or skid ribs, it may be necessary to mount
the antenna off-center.
3. If the vehicle roof does not provide sufficient metal surface area then
the antenna can be mounted on the metal trunk lid at least 4" from the
rear window.
(autIDn: DO NOT INSTALL ANTENNA INSIDE VEHICLE PASSENGER
COMPARTMENT. Mounting the antenna in the passenger compartment either on the front dash board or on the rear window deck area of the vehicle may interfere with reception and
must be avoided.
(autiDn: Mounting the antenna on a non-metallic surface will also result in severe degradation in reception.
4. If an appropriate antenna mounting location cannot be identified,
contact your local distributor installation department for additional
guidance.
Cable Routing
1. Once you have mounted the antenna in the correct location, plan how
to route the cable from this location to the receiver, avoiding blocked
passages and any obstructions that could kink, crimp, twist or chafe
the cable. If the cable will come in contact with a rough metal opening,
use a rubber grommet to prevent damage.
2. For antenna mounting locations at the front or middle of the roof,
the cable can be routed down along the door jam and into the car. In
some cars, the cable may be brought into the vehicle through the
grommet in the door jam which carries the power window and power
lock wires. Ifthe cable does not fit easily through this grommet, do
not try to force it through. Instead, route the cable under the weather
seal near the lowest part of the trunk to reduce possible water leaks.
3. Use pre-existing wiring channels created by the vehicle manufacturer
whenever possible.
Tools Required
The antenna contains a powerful magnet that will secure it to a metal roof
under normal driving conditions. No additional tools should be needed to
mount the antenna.
Installation P!o(ednre
Step 1
Remove the car stereo head unit from your dash board.
Important:
Depending on how your head unit was installed you may
have to remove part or all of your dashboard to remove the
head unit before the head unit can be pulled out. You may
also have to remove screws to complete this step.
Step 2
Connect the cable into the PIA. Plug the other end of the cable into the head
unit (Cable sold separately). Read your cable installation manual for proper
installation to your specific head unit.
Step 3
Start your car and turn on your unit to confirm that the XM Direct system is
properly connected. When you tune to XM channell, you should see uXM
Preview" on your head unit LCD, and hear that channel through your car
speakers. If not, check to make sure all connections are correct or refer to the
troubleshooting section of this installation guide.
Step 4
Mount and secure the PIA in a suitable location that will not interfere with
the radio and will not vibrate or rattle after installation.
StepS
Return the car stereo head unit back to its original location in the dash board,
be careful with cables that you just installed so that they do not unplug or
get kinked by the head unit.
Note:
If you had removed screws to pull the car stereo head unit out
please screw those back in.
Step 6
If you had removed the dash board during installation please return it back
to its original location.
Completing Activation
Now that your XM Direct system has been installed your XM Universal Tuner
will need to be activated. Details on how to operate your head unit in XM
mode are listed on the following page. Tune your car stereo head unit to the
XM Preview Channel, channell and follow instructions for activation. You
can also go on-line at XMradio.com or call the toll free XM activation number
at 1-800-967-2346. Once you have activated your tuner box make sure the
XM antenna on the outside of your car has an unobstructed view of the sky.

mobile video receiver manual for instructions on operating your XM satellite
