Vehicle Installation
Step 1: Choose a Location for Your Radio
When installing the XpressRCi in your vehicle, choose a location where it will not
block your vision, interfere with the controls, or obstruct the air bag. The location
should be easily accessible and provide good visibility of the display, and should
not be located where it will be in direct sunlight, which will affect the visibility of
the display screen.
Several examples of the XpressRCi mounted in a vehicle are shown: A is the on dash
method using the Dash Mount, and B is the vent clip method using the Vent Mount.

Step 2: Install the Dash or Vent Mount
Depending on your situation, you can either choose to use the Dash Mount or the
Vent Mount.
IMPORTANT! When you install the chosen mount, do not attach the dock to the
mount yet. All cables should be attached to the dock prior to connecting the dock
to the mount.
Installing the Dash Mount:
CAUTION! The adhesive used on the Dash Mount may be difficult
to remove. Do not install this mount on leather surfaces (contact
your vehicle dealer if you are unsure about your dash surface), and
make sure the air temperature is at least 60ûF (15ûC) during
installation. If it’s not at least 60ûF, turn on the heater in your
vehicle to bring the temperature up to 60ûF.
1
Locate a flat surface for the Dash Mount. Make sure there is ample room
for the PowerConnect Vehicle Dock and XpressRCi Radio when installed.
2 Set the orientation of the Dash Mount before adhering it. Loosen the
knob and adjust the adhesive foot for the location you selected in
“Step 1: Choose a Location for Your Radio” on page 16:
•Option 1 & Option 3
should be oriented as I.
•Option 2 should be
oriented as II.
18

Step 6: Connect the Audio
To play audio through your vehicle’s stereo or FM radio, decide on one of the
following audio connection options:
• Option 1: Best: Use the Aux In Cable if your vehicle’s stereo system has an
auxiliary input connection. Refer to your vehicle’s owners manual to find
the location of the auxiliary input jack, or consult the vehicle dealer.
TIP! The auxiliary input jack may be located on the face plate of the vehicle
radio, on the back of the radio, anywhere on the front dash panel, inside the glove
compartment, or inside the center console in between the front seats.
• Option 2: Better: Use a Cassette Adapter if your vehicle has a builtin cassette player. Cassette Adapters are sold separately and can be
purchased from an electronics retailer, or go to xmradio.com/accessories.
• Option 3: Good: Use the PowerConnect feature in the XpressRCi.
PowerConnect plays the audio through your vehicle’s FM radio.
• Option 4: Best: Use the FM Direct Adapter. If none of the previous three
audio connection options will work in your vehicle, then you will need to
use the FM Direct Adapter (FMDA) (sold separately). The FMDA needs to
be installed by a professional installer and directly connects the XpressRCi
to your vehicle’s FM radio. To learn more, check with the retailer where you
bought your radio, or go to xmradio.com/accessories.
Follow the installation instructions in the next several sections for the audio
connection option that you have selected.

5 You’ll first need to find an available FM channel. An available FM
channel is one that’s not being used by an FM radio station in your area.
When you tune your FM radio to an available channel, you should only
hear static or silence – not talk or music. We recommend one of the
following methods to find an available FM channel:
f. Use the SIRIUS | XM FM Channel Finder at www.xmradio.com/
fmchannel. Go to the website and enter your zip code. The Channel
Finder will suggest a list of available FM channels in your area. For
convenience, write down or print out the list.
OR
g.Manually tune through your local FM channels on your vehicle’s FM
radio. Locate and create a list of channels that aren’t being used by any
FM radio station. Write down the list. Once you have created your list of
available FM channels, you will need to find the one that provides the
best match for XpressRCi.
TIP! You’ll need to use the ‘Manual’ tune function on your vehicle’s FM radio to
tune through every FM channel one-by-one. Turn on your vehicle’s FM radio. Start
at 88.1 and use the ‘Manual’ tune function on your vehicle’s FM radio to tune
through each FM channel one-by-one (88.1 followed by 88.3 etc.) to locate
channels that aren’t being used by a local FM radio station. Write down each FM
channel that has only static or silence on it, until you reach 107.9.
6 Pick the first FM channel on your list from step 5. Turn on your vehicle’s
FM radio (if you have not already done so) and tune it to this FM
channel.

the FM channel.
9 You should hear XM channel 1
through your vehicle’s FM radio.
If you are satisfied with the
sound quality, you’re done! You
are now ready to activate your
XpressRCi.
10 If the selected FM channel
doesn’t work well for you, work
down the list of FM channels
until you find one that allows you to hear XM clearly. Each time, you will
need to tune your vehicle’s FM radio to the FM channel and then set
your XpressRCi to transmit on the same FM channel (steps 7 & 8).
50
If the signal reception is good, but there is no audio when tuned to channel
1, verify that XpressRCi’s FM Transmitter is On (step 6), and that both the FM
Transmitter and your vehicle’s FM radio are tuned to the same FM channel
(steps 5 & 7). Also ensure the chosen FM channel is a suitable one to use in
your area (step 5). Verify that nothing is plugged into the AUDIO connector
on the PowerConnect Vehicle Dock. Refer to “Troubleshooting” on page 110 for
additional help.
Option 4: FM Direct Adapter (FMDA) Installation
The FMDA needs to be installed by a professional installer. Professional
installation can help improve your radio’s reception and significantly reduce
the visibility of wires. To learn more, check with the retailer where you bought
your radio, or go to xmradio.com/accessories.

Find Available FM Channels in Your Area
Before attempting any of the procedures below, you should park your vehicle
in a safe location. Do not attempt to set up your FM channels or any onyX
function while driving.
PowerConnect allows you to listen to XM audio through your vehicle’s FM
radio. You will first need to find an available FM channel, which is a channel
that is not being used by an FM radio station in your area. When you tune
your FM radio to an available channel, you should only hear static or silence –
not talk or music.
Once you have found an available channel, you need to tune your XpressRCi’s
built-in transmitter to the same channel to receive XM sound through your
vehicle’s radio.
We recommend one of the following methods to find an available FM channel:
1
Use the SIRIUS | XM FM Channel Finder
Use the SIRIUS | XM FM Channel Finder at www.xmradio.com/
fmchannel. Go to the website and enter your zip code. The Channel
Finder will suggest a list of available FM channels in your area. For
convenience, write down or print out the list.
Tune XpressRCi to a favorite XM channel (or to channel 1, if it’s not
yet activated). Turn on your vehicle’s FM radio. Pick the first FM
channel on your Channel Finder list and tune the FM radio to that
channel. If you do not hear a local FM station broadcast, then tune
the XpressRCi to the same FM channel. (Refer to “Set and Select an
89
Configuring your XpressRCi
FM Channel” on page 82.) You should hear the XM channel through your
vehicle’s radio. If you are satisfied with the sound quality, you’re done!
If this FM channel doesn’t work well for you, work down the list until you
find an FM channel that allows you to hear XM clearly.
OR
2 Manually tune through your local FM channels
Manually tune through your local FM channels on your vehicle’s FM
radio. Turn on your vehicle’s FM radio. Start at 88.1 and use the ‘Manual’
tune function on your vehicle’s FM radio to tune through each FM
channel one-by-one (88.1 followed by 88.3 etc.) to locate channels
that aren’t being used by a local FM radio station. Write down each FM
channel that has only static or silence on it, until you reach 107.9. Once
you have created your list of available FM channels, you will need to find
the one that provides the best match for your XpressRCi.
Tune XpressRCi to a favorite XM channel (or to channel 1, if it’s not yet
activated). Pick the first FM channel on your list and tune the FM radio
to that channel. Then tune the XpressRCi to the same FM channel. (Refer
to “Set and Select an FM Channel” on page 82.) You should hear the XM
channel through your vehicle’s radio. If you are satisfied with the sound
quality, you’re done! If this FM channel doesn’t work well for you, work
down the list until you find an FM channel that allows you to hear XM
clearly.
NOTE! You may find an FM channel with static or silence that does not work with
XpressRCi. It is possible that some type of inaudible interference is present that
prevents reception of the XpressRCi broadcast. Your only options are to use
90
another FM channel or a different audio connection method.
TIP! If you regularly drive from one location to another, such as your daily
commute, you may need to use different FM channels along your route for
best performance. If this is the case, we recommend saving the best FM
channels as presets on your FM radio and XpressRCi. Then you simply select
and match the best channel for the area you are in.
TIP! It will be much more difficult to find available FM channels in large
cities than in most suburban or rural locations. A direct audio connection
using the Aux In Cable, Cassette Adapter, or professional installation is your
best solution if you drive in or near large metropolitan areas.
NOTE! The SIRIUS | XM FM Channel Finder relies on data from the Federal
Communications Commission. The data may not reflect the latest stations in
your area. In addition, local geography and weather conditions can impact
reception, so your results may be different from the list.
NOTE! The performance of FM radios are different, based on manufacturer
and vehicle style. Some may not work well with the type of FM transmitter
used by XpressRCi. This is why we recommend a direct audio connection using
the Aux In Cable or Cassette Adapter if they can be used in your vehicle.
Professional installation can also resolve almost any performance issue.

Troubleshooting
112
If this happens:
Try this:
No audio when using the Aux In
Cable or Cassette Adapter
•Check all cables between your XpressRCi and
your vehicle’s stereo system for a firm and
secure connection.
•Ensure you have selected the proper input
source on your vehicle’s stereo system.
•Ensure that the FM Transmitter in the XpressRCi
is turned Off, and increase the audio level of the
XpressRCi. Refer to “Set Audio Level” on page 97.
Audio fades or has static when
listening
•Check all cables for a firm and secure connection.
•If you are using PowerConnect (or FMDA) to
listen via your vehicle’s FM radio, and the
problem persists, it most likely is interference
from another commercial or broadcast FM
station. You will need to find an unused or
available FM channel in your area. Refer to “Find
Available FM Channels in Your Area” on page 89.
•If you are using PowerConnect, and you cannot
solve the audio problem, try connecting the
audio using the Aux In Cable or a Cassette
Adapter. (Refer to page 41 and page 44.) If you
cannot use those solutions, consider using an
FM Direct Adapter. (Refer to page 51.)
If this happens:
Try this:
No audio when using
PowerConnect or FMDA
•Check that your XpressRCi and your vehicle’s FM
radio are tuned to the same FM channel.
No song title or artist name is
displayed
•The information may not be available or updates
may be in progress.
Traffic and Weather channels
sound different from other
channels
•These channels use a different audio technology
than other channels so they often sound
different from other channels.
XpressRCi shuts off unexpectedly
•If Sleep Timer is set, the XpressRCi will turn off
after the selected length of time in a home
dock/sound system. Set Sleep Timer to Off.
•If Delayed Power is set, the XpressRCi will turn off
after the selected length of time in a dock. Set
Delayed Power to Off.
