Setting Up and Installing Your Kit
NOTE: The SIRIUS® signal can be received and
processed virtually anywhere as long as there
are no obvious satellite signal obstructions such
as nearby buildings, high terrain, parking
garages or tunnels.
1. Cabling Interconnections
You can begin to enjoy Sirius® Satellite Radio as soon
as the Shuttle and Vehicle Kit installation are complete.
Set up your Audiovox Shuttle using the following
installation instructions, or enlist the help of a
professional installer:
2. Installing the Cradle Mount Base Assembly
NOTE: The fins on the mounting base are pliable
and can be bent to conform to most
mounting surfaces.
a. Interconnect all of the components as shown
on the adjacent page to verify that the system
operates normally.
b. Locate a firm, reasonably flat surface within your
car to permit optimum viewing and line-of-sight
access by the supplied remote control unit.

CAUTION:
NOTE:
d. The cradle contains two mounting plates,
one on the rear and one on the bottom.
After deciding which configuration to use,
loosen and remove two flat-head screws
securing the plate to the cradle and remove
the plate. Save the two screws for reassembly.
Do not install the mounting base
on a leather or fabric surface, or
in a position that could impair
your vision, block air bag(s) or
obstruct vehicle dashboard
controls and/or radio CD/casette
operational displays.
The adhesive backing on the base
will not permit easy repositioning once
it has been mated to the surface; use
extreme care and planning when
selecting the mounting location. If the
base is to be screwed to the surface,
make sure the area in back of the
mounting surface is clear of wires or
other items to prevent unintentional
damage.
c. Using the alcohol swab supplied with your kit,
clean the mounting surface and thoroughly wipe
the area dry with a clean lint-free cloth.

e. As shown in the figure, unscrew the star nut
and ball strut assembly from the mounting
base threaded socket; then remove the flathead screw, lockwasher and flatwasher from
the end of the ball strut.

f.
h. If the outside air temperature is cold, it may
be beneficial to warm the adhesive backing
on the base using a portable hair dryer, or
by holding the backing surface in front of a
vehicle heater vent.
Insert the end of the ball strut into the keyed
opening on the cradle mounting plate, and
secure the plate to the ball strut using the
flatwasher, lockwasher and flat-head screw
through the back of the plate.
g. Reattach the mounting plate assembly to the
rear or bottom of the cradle assembly, as
desired, using the two flat-head screws
removed previously. Installation of the mounting
base can now continue.
i.
Remove the plastic liner from the adhesive
backing on the base, and fix the base in
position on the surface; make sure the
mounting pad is accurately positioned on
the first try, since repositioning may be
difficult, if not impossible.
j.
Bend the fins on the base so it conforms
to the mounting surface.
If the mount is to be screwed in place, do
not remove the plastic liner from the
adhesive backing. Use appropriate sheet
metal or machine screws for this purpose.

NOTE:
Allow a 72-hour period for the adhesive
backing to cure completely.
k. Using the star nut, attach the cradle assembly
to the base threaded socket; do not overtighten
the star nut.
3. Installing the Cradle Using Double-Sided Tape
You can mount the cradle directly to your dashboard
or other flat surface without using the cradle
mount in the kit. To do this, do not remove either of
the mounting plate assemblies from the cradle.
a. Remove the 3/4” x 3” double-sided tape from
the supplied kit.
b. Determine the location of the cradle, and clean
the mounting surface as before.
c. Peel the backing from one side of the tape, and
press the tape in place on the rear or bottom
cradle mounting plate.
d. Peel the backing from the exposed side of the
tape and carefully position the cradle on the
mounting surface, gently pressing the cradle
into place.
4. Using Other Manufacturer’s Mounts
The Shuttle Cradle can also be installed using other
manufacturer’s mounts; the mounting plate
provisions on the rear and bottom of the cradle
provide you with multiple mounting options within
the vehicle using various vehicle-specific
aftermarket brackets, such as those purchased
separately from Panavise, Pro-Fit, etc.
5. Installing the Shuttle into the Cradle
The Shuttle cradle has three retaining clips---one
on top and two on the bottom. Place the Shuttle in
the cradle so that the Shuttle connectors are lined
up; use the RF connector as a guide. Then gently
press in on the bottom of the Shuttle to engage the
connector. The top clip will automatically engage;
then slide the two bottomclips back into the locked
position. Cradle orientation can be adjusted by
loosening the star nut and then tightening it when
the cradle is in the desired viewing position.

6. Sirius Program Listening Options
The Shuttle and Cradle provide an audio output
signal in three manners:
1. When using CK1 or CK2 cradle, the audio signal
can be routed through an audio cable which is
applied to the auxiliary inputs of a radio or
entertainment system.
2. When using the CK1 cradle, the audio signal can
be transmitted to a car radio on one of four
selectable FM frequencies. The audio signal can
then be played through your car radio when the
car radio is tuned to one of these frequencies.
3. Some listeners prefer to use a hard-wired FM
transmitter. In this instance, when using the CK1
cradle, an optional FM Switching Box assembly
(Part No. SIR-SWB) is available and provides a
hard-wired FM output when connected to the FM OUT
connector on the left side of the cradle; the other end
of the switching box plugs into the antenna jack of your
radio. By using this assembly, and selecting the
appropriate FM output frequency (88.1MHz, 88.3MHz,
88.5MHz or 88.7MHz) with the slide switch, the Sirius
signal received at the ANT cradle antenna input can be
played through your car radio when tuned to one of
these frequencies.

7. Mounting the Vehicle Antenna
The antenna should be placed on a relatively flat
surface on the vehicle exterior, preferably on the
roof (high point) or on the trunk (convertible). To
mount the antenna:
SHUTTLE
(TYPICAL)
a. Plug the antenna into the ANT connector
on the back of the cradle.
b. Place the antenna at the preferred location on
the roof or trunk surface. If the vehicle is
equipped with a roof or trunk rack, the antenna
may have to be mounted off-center on the
surface. The magnet will secure the antenna in
the desired position.
c. Apply power to the Shuttle system as outlined
in the associated User Guide and obtain an
audio output. If no audio is heard, first check
the signal strength indicator located on the
bottom left corner of the display to ensure the
antenna is receiving an optimum signal. If
necessary, move the antenna to different
positions on the surface until an audio output
is heard. This is the desired antenna position
and should be marked with masking tape or by
another non-scratch method.

d. After determining the optimum position, turn off
Shuttle power, disconnect the power
adapter from the vehicle cigarette lighter
receptacle and disconnect the antenna cable.

e. Plan the routing of the antenna cable to the
Shuttle RF input. Make sure you avoid any
obstructions that could crimp, kink or twist the
cable; use protective grommets wherever rough
openings are encountered.
f.
Route the cable from the antenna position to
the interior of the vehicle, working the cable
under the rear window molding; make
adjustments and take up slack whenever
necessary.
g. At the lowest point of the rear window, route the
cable into the trunk, taking advantage of existing
cable conduits. Then snake the cable around
the passenger compartment to the back of the
Sirius cradle.

ROUTING
THE CABLE
h. In SUV’s, minivans, etc., route the cable into the
vehicle under the rubber molding of the hatch
door or tailgate, and then under the interior trim.
NOTE:
Avoid exposing the cable in the driver
and passenger areas where it could
become entangled in feet or other
objects.

i.
Plug the antenna cable into the ANT
connector on the back of the cradle; then plug
the cigarette lighter adapter into the lighter
receptacle. The integral power LED of the
power button ( ) will light red.
j.
You are now ready to enjoy Sirius programming
within your vehicle.
CAUTION: You could drain the vehicle battery if
the cigarette lighter adapter remains
plugged in after the ignition is turned
off. Unplug the adapter to prevent
this possibility.
