Install the Dash or Vent Mount
Installing the Vent Mount:
You can use either the Dash Mount or the Vent Mount for your onyX, 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.
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.
Installing the Dash Mount:
Locate a suitable vent in your vehicle which is strong enough to
hold the onyX and the PowerConnect Vehicle Dock. (Options 4
or 5.)
2 If the vent louvers are recessed, you’ll have to use the
extended vent hooks. The Vent Mount is assembled with the
short vent clamps, so you will have to remove the short clamps
and install the extended clamps as shown below.
Remove End Cap
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.

4 You May Need to Try Other FM Channels on Your List
Choose the best location for the antenna considering your vehicle type. Refer to the antenna
placement tips and cautions in the User Guide beginning on page 22. .
You will listen to onyX through your vehicle’s stereo system or FM radio. First, onyX must be receiving the XM signal.
Ensure your vehicle is outside with the antenna having a clear view of the sky. Your audio connection options are:
Tune the onyX and Vehicle FM Radio to the Same FM Channel
• Convertible: We recommend mounting the antenna at the leading edge of the trunk.
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.
Option 4
Option 1
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.

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.

3 Push the Vent Mount onto the vehicle vent as shown (1) until
hooked on the rear of the vent louver (2).
Option 2
4 Rest the foot against the bottom of the vent (2). If necessary,
adjust the tilt of the Vent Mount by repositioning the foot to a
different tilt adjustment hole (3).

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.
Plug the antenna into the silver ANT connection on the rear of the dock.

• Better: Use a Cassette Adapter if your vehicle has a built-in
cassette player. Cassette Adapters are sold separately. Plug
the Cassette Adapter into the green AUDIO connector on the
PowerConnect Vehicle Dock. Insert the Cassette Adapter into
the vehicle’s cassette deck. Set the stereo system to play from
the cassette source.
• Good: Use the PowerConnect feature in the onyX. PowerConnect plays the audio through your vehicle’s FM radio.
When you have finished step 4 (below), you’ll first need to find an available FM channel in your area, and then you
need to ensure that the onyX and your vehicle’s FM radio are tuned to the same available FM channel. (Step 5)
• Best: 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 onyX 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

TIP! You may find an FM channel with static or silence that does not work with onyX. It is possible that some type
of inaudible interference is present that prevents reception of the onyX broadcast. Your only options are to use
another FM channel or a different audio connection method.

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. .
NOTE! If you are using the Vehicle Dock from the Universal Xpress Car Kit instead of the
PowerConnect Vehicle Dock which came with your onyX, you will have to complete some
additional instructions before you can set onyX to transmit on an FM channel. Refer to
“Using the Vehicle Dock From the Universal Xpress Car Kit” on page 96 of the User
Guide, and complete the instructions. The audio connection will be through your
vehicle’s FM radio, but it is not PowerConnect.

b.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 onyX.
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.

TIP! Avoid damaging or compromising the window, door, and trunk seals.
IMPORTANT! Allow the Dash Mount adhesive to cure (dry) for a minimum of
2-4 hours before using the mount. The best adhesion occurs after 24 hours.
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.
