OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
INTRODUCTION
The Audiovox Xpress XM7 unit processes the XM satellite signals received by the externally mounted antenna (purchased
separately for Home or Boom Box Kits). The Xpress XM7 unit
recognizes and decodes the incoming XM program information
and provides an audio signal to your radio or other audio output
equipment.
NOTE: When installed in a vehicle, the XM signal can be
received and processed virtually anywhere as long as there
are no obvious satellite signal obstructions such as nearby
tall buildings, high terrain, parking garages or tunnels.
The Xpress XM7 unit is typically installed in an accessible location of the vehicle (dash area), consistent with line-of-sight
operation of the remote control, and/or within easy reach of the
driver. For home use, situate the Xpress XM7 unit close to your
stereo receiving equipment.

GETTING STARTED
XM Activation
Activating your XM7 radio service is easy. You have one of
two choices to activate your service: Online or by Phone.
Online Activation Process
First, please make sure the Xpress XM7 unit is working properly by tuning to the XM7 Preview channel (#1). If you can hear
XM7 Preview, your equipment is ready. NOTE: The antenna
must be installed on the outside of your vehicle for best performance.
Next, make sure you have a credit card and your XM7 Radio
Hardware ID handy. You can display your ID by tuning your
XM7 Radio to channel ‘0’, one down from XM7 Preview (For
tuning instructions see the Receiver Control Features section of
this guide.)
To obtain the XM7 identification (ID) number, tune to channel 0
and press the Rotary/Select Knob. The 8-character alphanumeric XM7 ID will appear on the screen. Write the alphanumeric
ID below (Figure 1) for future reference.
NOTE: No adjustments are allowed in this mode. To exit the
Radio ID screen, tune to any channel by turning the rotary knob
and press.
Please check your 8-character alphanumeric XM7 ID code carefully. There is no “I” (eye), “o” (oh), “S” or “F” used. You may wish
to double-check your ID code on the outside of your tuner box.
Enter the ID code below:

direction the unit tunes up one channel at a time. When the knob
is turned in a counter clockwise (CCW) direction the unit tunes
down one channel at a time. When in the list or menu mode,

the various menus and lists. The current selection from the list
will be highlighted on the display. When the item is highlighted,
press the Rotary/Select Knob to enter the selection.
Power Button - This button applies power to and removes
power from the Xpress XM7 unit. This button is also the Xpress
XM7 unit’s receiver eye (IR).
Memory Button (mem.) - This button allows the user to
capture and store the current program data information (Artist
& Song Title). You can store up to 20 Artist/Song Title combinations.
-10-
Jump Button – This button allows the user to jump to the
Previous Channel (i.e., switch between the current and previous channel.
Time
Preset/Direct Button (pre./dir.) - Each momentary press of
the PRESET button allows the user to switch between (3) banks
of Channel presets (10 presets each A, B, and C) plus Direct
channel entry. When in any of the three preset banks, momentarily pressing any of the number buttons will recall the stored
channel. In the Direct (Dir) mode, use the number buttons to
directly enter the desired channel number followed by pressing
the Rotary/ Select Knob.
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.
Display Screen Features - Shown to the right is an example
of an active Display Screen (see Figure 3). Pressing the DISPLAY button from the Default display switches between the
artist name/song title screen, artist name/song title with stock
screen, artist name/song title with sports screen, or large letter

FM Frequency
The following Frequency Setting adjustments are possible:
NOTE:The Xpress XM7 unit has an internal wireless FM transmitter, which allows you to play the audio through any standard
FM receiver, eliminating the need for hardwire connections. In
certain urban areas of the country where strong FM stations
may overpower the Xpress XM7 unit FM transmitted signal, an
FM direct adapter may be needed to achieve a clean audio
signal (Part Number XMFM-1)
FM ON or OFF Feature
This feature allows the user to turn the FM Transmitter ON or
OFF. It is recommended that you turn the FM Transmitter OFF if
you are using the low level audio outputs in your particular
application (optional cable needed SAT-RCA) (see Figure 7).
Upon entering the “FM Frequency” mode the FM transmitter will
be OFF by default. To turn the FM Transmitter ON, turn the
Rotary/Select knob CW/CCW or use the UP and DOWN buttons
on the Remote Control to the highlight the desired frequency
(88.1, 88.3, 88.5,.......107.9).
Figure 7. FM OFF Screen
The selected frequency must be an unused frequency or a
frequency used by a low powered FM station in your area. If
not, the strong signal from the FM station may overpower the
Xpress XM7 unit FM transmitted signal which may result in
interference.
With the FM Frequency highlighted, press the Rotary/Select
Knob or the (XM) Select button on the remote control to confirm
the selection (see Figure 8).
Figure 8. FM Frequency Screen

This feature allows the user to adjust the brightness and contrast of the unit’s display (see Figure 9). Upon entering either the
brightness or contrast adjustment mode, a horizontal bar graph
is displayed with a minus (-) sign on the left and a plus (+) on the
right. Use the Rotary/Select Knob to highlight the contrast or the
brightness adjustment. Once the desired adjustment is highlighted, press the Rotary/Select Knob to enter the adjustment
mode. If there is no activity for 12 seconds, the unit will exit to
active channel screen.
Brightness mode: Turn the Rotary/Select Knob CW or use the
UP arrow on the Remote Control to increase the screen’s brightness. Turn the Rotary/Select Knob CCW or use the DOWN arrow on the Remote Control to decrease the screen’s brightness.
Once the desired setting is obtained, press the menu button
twice to return to the active channel screen.

desired setting is obtained, press the menu button twice to return
to the active channel screen.
When the Receiver is to be used in battery-operated
accessories, such as the Xpress Boom Box (XMB10),
to maximize battery life, it is suggested that the brightness setting be reduced to a minimal level.
Figure 9. Brightness and Contrast Screen
