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-stationary satellites, XM® radio provides
static and distortion-free 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-art XM® Satellite Radio System, consisting
of a Satellite Antenna (purchased separately), a Satellite Radio Receiver Unit (RRU), a Satellite Radio RF Modulator, a Satellite 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
Control Unit (SCU).
How the System Operates
Trademarks
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
XM® is a registered trademark of XM® Satellite Radio. All Rights Reserved. www.xmradio.com
Other product names mentioned in this manual may be trademarks
or registered trademarks of their respective companies and are hereby
acknowledged.

RF output is supplied to the RF Modulator. The RF Modulator, in turn, is
capable of recognizing 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.

XM® Satellite Receiver System
SATELLITE CONTROL UNIT (SCU)
The SCU provides for complete control of the system by means of its
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and associated function buttons.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Infrared Detector: Provides detection of the infrared control
signal transmitted by an optional wireless remote control unit
(P/N SAT-RC) for remote operation. Make sure no obstructions
are blocking the signal path.
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.
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.
Mute Function Button: Momentarily press the shift (SFT) button; then press and hold the down directional (
) button to
enable the audio mute function. When enabled, the audio program is muted and the Mute icon (
) appears in the lower
right corner of the SCU display. Press any button to exit the mute
function.
Scan Function Button: Momentarily press the shift (SFT)
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.
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
provides the necessary FM pass-band logic to recognize and pass these
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.

Functional Operation
Functional operation of the system is controlled by the buttons on the
SCU; i.e., the sequence in which they are pressed, and the length of
time button activation occurs.

POWERING UP THE SYSTEM
After the system has been properly installed and activated, the system
can be powered on in the following manner:
1.
The Audiovox Logo Appears-and-XM® Satellite Program is Loaded
4.
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.
After program loading is complete, the display reverts to either
preview channel 001 (if the system is being activated for the
first time), or it will return to the last XM® channel being used
when the system was turned off. A typical channel display will
appear as shown below.

USING THE UP/DOWN BUTTONS
To select an XM® channel using just the Up/Down directional buttons,
proceed as follows:
1.
2.
When an invalid (no broadcast) channel is encountered, the channel is automatically skipped.
4.
Momentarily press the Up direction (
) button to advance,
one step at a time, to the next higher channel.
To advance rapidly in the upward direction, press and hold the
Up direction button until the desired channel is reached; then
release the button.
Conversely, momentarily press the Down direction (
) button
to advance, one step at a time, to the next lower channel.
To advance rapidly in the downward direction, press and hold
the Down direction button until the desired channel is reached;
then release the button.
Press the Shift (SFT) button; the first channel number in that
category (CH 020 for example) for a particular entertainment
grouping, or genre, appears flashing for 5 seconds in reverse
image format.
While the number is flashing, momentarily press the Up
directional (
) button.
The category will advance to the next higher category or
grouping (030 for example), which will also flash for 5 seconds. If
no further advance is made, the category number will then remain steady.
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 or group.
NOTE: Each category or group is also assigned a code number which can be directly accessed using the shift (SFT)
button; these and other shift codes, and their assignments, are summarized later in this manual.
