Introduction
The Audiovox Xpress XM® unit processes the XM satellite signals
received by the externally mounted antenna (purchased separately for
Home or Boom Box Kits). The Xpress XM® 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 XM® 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 XM® unit close to your stereo receiving equipment.

Getting Started
XM Activation
Activating your XM® 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 XM® unit is working properly by
tuning to the XM® Preview channel (#1). If you can hear XM® 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 XM® Radio Hardware
ID handy. You can display your ID by tuning your XM® Radio to channel ‘0’, one down from XM® Preview (For tuning instructions see the
Receiver Control Features section of this guide.)
To obtain the XM® identification (ID) number, tune to channel 0 and press
the Rotary/Select Knob. The 8-character alphanumeric XM® 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.
10
Please check your 8-character alphanumeric XM® 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:
Figure 1. Your Receiver 8-character alphanumeric ID
Online Activation Process
Once the ID code is obtained, log on to XM® at http://activate.xmradio.com
and follow the easy instructions to activate your Xpress XM® unit.
Call-in Activation Process
Call XM® at 1-800-XM RADIO (1-800-967-2346). One of XM®’s friendly
Customer Care representatives will take the necessary information and
walk you through the activation process. After the activation form is
submitted you should keep your receiver ON for at least 1 hour. This will
complete the activation process. When the Xpress XM® unit is activated,
you will be able to access over 170 digital radio channels.

store the current program data information (Artist & Song Title). You
can store up to 20 Artist/Song Title combinations.
Jump Button – This button allows the user to jump to the Previous
Channel (i.e., switch between the current and previous channel).
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.

desired channel number. They are also used when entering and
recalling preset channel numbers into memory.
14
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 format. When the letter size changes, the field
will scroll. This feature is useful when viewing the display at a distance.

FM Frequency
The following Frequency Setting adjustments are possible only when
using the Xpress XM® unit in your vehicle.
NOTE: The Xpress XM® unit has an internal wireless FM transmitter,
which allows you to play the audio through any standard vehicle FM
receiver, eliminating the need for hardwire connections. In certain urban
areas of the country where strong FM stations may overpower the Xpress
XM® unit FM transmitted signal, an FM direct adapter may be needed
to achieve a clean audio signal (Part Number XMFM-1) in your vehicle.
FM ON or OFF Feature
This feature allows the user to turn the FM Transmitter ON or OFF
when the Xpress XM® unit is used in the Car Cradle only. 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).
19
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 XM® 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

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.
Contrast Mode: Turn the Rotary/Select Knob CW or use the UP arrow
on the Remote Control to increase the screen’s contrast. Turn the
