Vehicle installation
Every vehicle is different; for your safety, follow all instructions carefully. Consult a
professional installer if you have questions.
1. To begin, first decide which method of installation is best for your vehicle:
Cassette Adapter (Included): Use the cassette adapter if your vehicle’s audio system
has a built in cassette player.
XM SureConnect (Sold Separately): You can listen to your XpressR through your car
stereo by using XpressR’s built-in FM modulator and the XM SureConnect. Simply find
an unused FM frequency on the stereo and set your XpressR to transmit on that same
frequency.
FM Direct Adapter (Sold Separately): The third option is the FM Direct Adapter. We
recommend professional installation if you choose to use this method of install.
Audio input: Some vehicles come with an audio input jack. If your vehicle has this
type of input you can simply use a mini audio cable (sold separately).
2. Once you have chosen your method of installation, next decide where in your vehicle
you would like to mount your XpressR. The two included methods are vent mount
and swivel mount:
Vent Mount
Swivel Mount
3. Next decide the best location for your XM antenna. Mount this antenna to the
roof or trunk of the vehicle. During installation, make sure you are outdoors and the
antenna is not obstructed by tall buildings.
4. Finally you will connect all of the plugs to the car cradle and lock your XpressR into
place. Once in place you can activate your XpressR
Now that you have all of the parts you need, you are ready to begin installing your
XpressR.

Step 1: Mounting the XM Antenna
Mount the XM antenna to the roof or trunk of the vehicle. During installation,
make sure you are outdoors and the antenna is not obstructed by tall buildings.
For best results mount the XM antenna to the outside of your vehicle. Below are
the recommended options.

Keep excess cable
behind or under
the dashboard.
The XM antenna contains a strong magnet, allowing
it to stick to any metal parts of your vehicle.

Step 2: Installing the Vent Mount or Swivel Mount
Installing the vent mount
To install the vent mount, find a horizontal vent that is strong enough to hold your
XpressR and car cradle. To remove the vent mount, push it into the vent and lift upwards
slightly to release the mount’s hooks from the vent vane.
Some parts of the vent mount can be adjusted
to better suit your vent.

Installing the swivel mount
To install the swivel mount, first find a suitable location. The swivel mount’s adhesive is
very strong and may be difficult to remove. Do not install this mount on leather surfaces and make sure the air temperature is at least 60°F (15°C).
Clean the mounting surfaces with the
surface preparation kit.
Peel away the adhesive liner and firmly press the
swivel mount to the surface for 30 seconds. Allow
24 hours before using the mount
adhesive liner
You can orient your swivel different ways
to accommodate the space available in
your vehicle.
You can adjust this screw to adjust
the tension of the mount with a
screwdriver.
If you need to remove the mount, carefully lift the adhesive pad with your fingers or a
spoon. Warming with a hair dryer for several minutes will help soften the adhesive. Your
swivel mount comes with an extra adhesive pad.
Step 3: How to receive XM through your car stereo
There are several methods of receiving XM through your car stereo
Cassette Adapter (Included): Use the cassette adapter if your vehicle’s audio system
has a built in cassette player.

XM SureConnect (Sold Separately): You can listen to your XpressR through your vehicle’s
audio system by using XpressR’s built-in FM modulator and the XM SureConnect. Simply
find an unused FM frequency on the stereo and set your XpressR to transmit on that same
frequency.
Professional Wired (Sold Separately): The third option is the FM Direct Adapter. We recommend professional installation if you choose to use this method of install.
Audio input: Some vehicles come with an audio input jack. If your vehicle has this type of
input you can simply use a mini audio cable (sold separately).
Plug the antenna, power adapter, and either the cassette adapter into the car cradle as
shown on the next page. The FM Direct Adapter and the XM SureConnect are not pictured.

Now that your XpressR is all set up, it is time to power it up. If you are using the XM
SureConnect you will need to read Step 4. If you are using the cassette adapter you are
all finished and ready to move on to activation on page 24.
Step 4: Making Your Vehicle’s FM Radio an XM Radio
Your XpressR contains a built-in FM modulator that requires the use of either the XM
SureConnect (sold separately) or the FM Direct Adapter (sold separately) to transmit
the XM audio signal to your vehicle’s FM radio.
The factory default setting for your XpressR is FM Modulator (Off). Follow the menu
instructions to change the menu setting to FM Modulator (On).
Turn on your car stereo. You will need to find a suitable FM frequency in order to get
the best sound. A suitable FM frequency is an unused frequency or weak station that is
not located near a strong FM station in your area. Follow the steps below for more
help:
1. Go to www.xmradio.com/fmlocator for recommended FM frequencies in your
area.
2. Enter your local USPS Zip Code.
3. You will see the recommended FM frequencies in your area. Try the “vacant” channels first.
4. Set your vehicle’s FM radio to one of the recommended frequencies. Now set your
XM receiver to the same frequency using the menu settings. For more information,
see FM Frequency on page 47.
5. If the audio quality is not satisfactory, you can repeat these steps by choosing another frequency.
You will see a chart that looks like this:
This chart represents the FM channels in the Washington, DC area. The spikes represent
the strength of the FM channel. Someone in DC would choose a “vacant” channel like
92.9 that is unused and located between two weaker channels.
Next, power on your XpressR. Be sure all of your cables are properly connected. Go to
channel 1, this is the preview channel. You will not hear any sound through your vehicle’s audio system until you have chosen an FM Frequency.
Note: XpressR will automatically enter a demo mode if either of these two conditions
exists:
1. If your XM antenna is not connected and your XpressR is not activated.
2. If your XM antenna is connected, you are not receiving a signal, and your XpressR is
not activated.
Note: Your XM radio may not modulate on each of the frequencies shown on the
Radio-Locator site. Check your XpressR for the frequencies that are usable for you.

Now you should be able to hear your XpressR through your FM stereo. If you can’t hear
any sound please check all of your connections and be sure your XM antenna is not obstructed. Visit Troubleshooting (page 52) for more information.
Now you will learn how to activate and use your XpressR.

Before you can listen to XM content, you must activate your XpressR.
1. Set up your XpressR, car cradle, power adapter, and antenna (pages 11- 22). Make sure
XpressR can receive the XM signal.
2. Find the 8-character XM Radio ID, which is printed on the package or on the back of
your XpressR. Or select XM channel 0 to view the Radio ID. Record the Radio ID here for
reference:
The XM Radio ID does not use the letters I, O, S, or F.
3. Activate your XM Satellite Radio service online at http://activate.xmradio.com or by
calling 1 800 XM RADIO (1-800-967-2346 ). You will need a major credit card. The
website will walk you through activation, selecting a service plan, and creating an XM
account.
XM will send a signal from the satellites to activate the full channel lineup. Activation
normally takes 10 to 15 minutes, but during peak busy periods you may need to keep
your XpressR on for up to an hour. When you can access the full channel lineup on your
XpressR, you’re finished!

Troubleshooting
XpressR is designed and built to provide you with trouble-free performance without
the need for servicing. If it does not appear to be functioning properly, follow these
troubleshooting steps first to try to remedy the situation yourself:
1. Attach all connections firmly and securely.
2. Make sure the cigarette lighter/auxiliary power socket is clean and free of corrosion.
3. If you have installed XpressR in a vehicle and it does not power on, check the 12V
adapter fuse by unscrewing the ribbed end of the 12V adapter. If required, replace
with a 1-amp fuse only. If the 12V adapter does not have a removable end-cap, it has
an internal fuse that resets itself after it is left unplugged for a period of time.
