1 OVERVIEW
1.1 Introduction
The GDL 69/69A SiriusXM Satellite Radio Activation Instructions are applicable to the following GDL 69
Series products:







MX20/GMX 200
G1000/G900X/G950
G500/G600
GNS 400/500 Series
GNS 400W/500W Series
GTN 6XX/7XX
G500/G600/G700 TXi
The use of the term GDL 69 Series encompasses all the different models in this document unless otherwise
specified. The term GDL 69/69A SXM is used to indicate receiver models compatible with the updated
SiriusXM G4 satellite network.
The GDL 69 models are a weather data link only. The GDL 69A models combine a weather data link and
an audio receiver.
1.2 General Activation Information
Before activating, the GDL 69 Series must be installed in accordance with GDL 69 Series TSO Installation
Manual or GDL 69/69A Part 23 AML STC Installation Manual. Before the GDL 69 Series can be used, the
unit must have active SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscriptions. This document will take you through the
process.
To activate a GDL 69 Series receiver, the Radio ID(s) are required. The Data Radio ID is for SiriusXM
weather while the Audio Radio ID is for SiriusXM audio entertainment (available only on
GDL 69A models). The Radio ID information is printed on a label affixed to the last page of this document
and can be retrieved electronically from the interfaced display unit. To activate a GDL 69 SXM receiver,
only one Radio ID is required (both Data and Audio use the same ID).
To activate service, refer to SiriusXM’s website at www.siriusxm.com/sxmaviation, or call
(855) 796-9847.
1.3 Refreshing Activation
Refresh the unit if it has been inactive for more than one hour. Activation refresh can be performed through
the SiriusXM website at https://care.siriusxm.com/retailrefresh_view.action. Follow the instructions on the
website. If both data (weather) and audio packages need to be refreshed on a first generation GDL 69
Series, the refresh must be performed for each Radio ID.
NOTE
If the aircraft has not been powered on for an extended period of time, the SiriusXM
subscription may have been automatically deactivated. In this event, the unit must be
refreshed.

When the GDL 69 Series is not properly activated, it may be necessary to perform a full deactivation and
reactivation of the system. This procedure is complicated and should not be attempted without the
guidance of Garmin technical support.
1.5 Reference Documents
The following publications are sources of additional information for activating the GDL 69 Series
products. Before activating the GDL 69 Series, all referenced materials applicable to the installation should
be read. Be sure to visit www.garmin.com and verify the latest revision of documents applicable to your

2 MX20/GMX 200 ACTIVATION
The MX20/GMX200 must be configured to accept information from a GDL 69 Series unit in accordance
with MX20 Multi-Function Display Installation Manual or the GMX 200 Multi-Function Display
Installation Manual. The complete activation process may take over 45 minutes, depending on the
demands of the SiriusXM activation system. Do not cycle or remove power from the units during the
activation process. It is recommended that the aircraft is outside and away from metallic structures. For
activation, you will need the SiriusXM Radio ID(s) and your billing information. The SiriusXM Radio IDs
are located on the Data Link Status page (see figure 2-1) and on the back page of this document.
NOTE
GDL 69/69A units have separate Data and Audio Radio IDs, and will not function
correctly with both audio and data services activated under one ID. GDL 69 SXM
receivers use one Radio ID for both data and audio services.
2.1 Activation Steps
1. Ensure the aircraft’s SiriusXM antenna has an unobstructed view of the southern sky.
2. Connect aircraft to an external power source, if available.
3. With the MX20/GMX 200 and GDL 69 Series unit powered up, verify the yellow GDL 69 failure
flag is not displayed. A flag indicates potential communication issue between the
MX20/GMX 200 and GDL 69 Series unit.
4. Go to the SiriusXM Activation page.
a. Press the FN key until the FIS function is displayed. Press the FIS soft key.
b. Press the fourth soft key on the bottom of the page, until “STATUS” is displayed.
c. Press the MENU/ENT key.
d. Press the soft key on the right hand side next to Products. “Diagnostics” and “Start Diag”
will be displayed (“Start Diag” is not displayed in software version 5.5).
e. Press the Diagnostics soft key.
f. The Activation page will be displayed.
5. To activate service, refer to SiriusXM’s website at www.siriusxm.com/sxmaviation, or call
(855) 796-9847.
NOTE
Specify subscription class when activating the data service. The activation process takes
approximately 45-60 minutes, but may take longer depending on system load. During the
activation process, the unit may display several different activation levels. This is common
and should be ignored.
6. Once the service class and all of the weather products subscribed to are displayed, press the
Accept soft key. Wait 10 to 30 seconds to allow the GDL 69 Series to process the accept command
and lock in the activation.

6 GNS 400W/500W SERIES ACTIVATION
The GNS 400W/500W Series must be configured to accept information from a GDL 69 Series unit in
accordance with the applicable GNS 400W/500W installation manual. The complete activation process
may take over 90 minutes, depending on the demands of the SiriusXM activation system. Do not cycle or
remove power from the units during the activation process. It is recommended that the aircraft is outside
and away from metallic structures. For activation, you will need the SiriusXM Radio ID(s) and your billing
information. The SiriusXM Radio IDs are located on the XM Information page (see figure 6-1) and on the
back page of this document.
NOTE
GDL 69/69A units have separate Data and Audio Radio IDs, and will not function
correctly with both audio and data services activated under one ID. GDL 69 SXM
receivers use one Radio ID for both data and audio services.
NOTE
Once activation process has been started, do not change pages until the XM Information
page shows satellite radio service has been activated.
6.1 Activation Steps

8 G500/G600/G700 TXi ACTIVATION
Before SiriusXM Weather is accessed, service must be activated by the SiriusXM customer service. This is
accomplished by providing either one or two coded IDs, SiriusXM Satellite Weather (data) and Sirius
Satellite Radio (audio). The coded IDs are used to send an activation signal, which allows the use of
weather and entertainment products once received by the GDL 69/69A.
When SiriusXM weather services are not activated, all the weather product boxes are cleared on the
GDL 69 Status page. A yellow “Activation Required” message prompts in the center of the page.
Service Class refers to the groupings of weather products available for subscription.
8.1 Activation Steps
1. Contact SiriusXM at (855) 796-9847 or refer to SiriusXM’s website at
www.siriusxm.com/sxmaviation.
