Before you begin, you may want to have the User Guide for your XM onyX Radio handy, as
there are a couple of steps where we suggest you reference it. If you do not have the User
Guide, go to xmradio.com, click on SHOP, then click on your onyX, and then click SUPPORT.

You can use either the Dash Mount or the Window Mount for your radio, depending upon your
vehicle and the location where you want to place your radio.
CAUTION! Make sure your radio isn’t in a place where it could interfere with driver visibility or
safe deployment of the airbags. Airbag locations are typically marked with “SRS” logos.
IMPORTANT! When you install the chosen mount, do not yet attach the PowerConnect Vehicle
Dock to the mount. The cables must be attached prior to connecting the dock to the mount.

CAUTION: The adhesive used on the Dash Mount may
be difficult to remove. Do not install this mount on
leather surfaces (contact your automobile dealership 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.

IMPORTANT! States or localities may prohibit driving with a suction mount on the windshield. (See
California Vehicle Code Section 26708(a); Minnesota Statutes 2008, Section 169.71). When driving
in these areas, the dash mounting option should be used instead. Check your state or local laws for
any applicable restrictions. SIRIUS XM Radio Inc. does not take any responsibility for any fines,

3 Feed the antenna wire under the rubber molding around the front or rear windshield,
and into the seal around the trunk or door. For a convertible, the cable can be routed
directly into the trunk.
TIP! Use a tool like a blunt plastic putty knife, a credit card, a plastic knife, or a similar blunt
tool to help hide wires along the windshield trim and interior trim.

following options:
ANT

The best place to hide your antenna cable depends on your type of vehicle.
When the antenna is mounted at the rear of the vehicle, it’s usually easiest to run the cable
from the rear to the front toward the radio by routing the cable along the interior trim where it
meets the carpet, gently pushing it behind the edges of the trim. Bring the cable out from the
trim and route it under the carpet toward the dashboard.
When the antenna is mounted at the front of the vehicle, bring the cable into the rubber
weather stripping around the door to the bottom of the door opening. Bring the cable out of
the weather stripping and route it under the carpet toward the dashboard.
Coil any excess cable in a hidden location, such as under the carpet, keeping it away from any
vehicle pedals or controls. Secure the excess cable with wire ties.

1 Find an Available FM Channel in Your Area
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:
a 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
b 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 Satellite
Radio.

a Pick the first FM channel on your list.
b Turn on your vehicle’s FM radio (if you have not already done so) and tune it to

3 Set Your Satellite Radio to Transmit on the Same FM Channel
direct
• Good: Use the PowerConnect feature in your radio. PowerConnect plays the audio through
your vehicle’s FM radio. When you have finished step 4, you’ll first need to find an available FM
channel, and then you’ll need to ensure that the Satellite Radio and your vehicle’s FM radio are
tuned to the same available FM channel. (Step 5)
a Refer to the User Guide which accompanied your Satellite Radio, and turn On the
FM Transmitter in your radio.
Match Channels
b Refer to the User Guide again, and set your Satellite
Radio to transmit on the same usable FM channel that
97.9
you found in step 1.

TIP! A dry vehicle is nice. Avoid damaging or compromising the window, door, and trunk seals
and trunk seals as you route the cable.
TIP! For more help, refer to the detailed antenna cable routing instructions for your type of
vehicle, in the User Guide beginning on page 25.
• Best: Use an FM Direct Adapter. Use an FM Direct Adapter (FMDA) if none of the above
three audio connection options works in your vehicle. The FMDA needs to be installed by a
professional installer and directly connects the radio to your vehicle’s FM radio.
TIP! Refer to your vehicle’s owners manual to find the location of the auxiliary input jack, or
consult the vehicle dealer. To learn more about purchasing a Cassette Adapter or FMDA, check
with the retailer where you bought your radio or go to xmradio.com/accessories.
If you connected the audio using the AUX In Cable or a Cassette Adapter, the installation is
complete. Now sit back and enjoy Satellite Radio.
If you are connecting the audio using PowerConnect, continue with step 5.
c Tune your Satellite Radio to a favorite XM channel (or
channel 1 if it’s not yet activated).
d You should hear the XM audio through your vehicle’s
FM radio. If you are satisfied with the sound quality,
you’re done! Now sit back and enjoy Satellite Radio.
e 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
Satellite Radio to transmit on the same FM channel.
