How to use the swivel mount

How to use the vent mount

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.

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.

Clean the mounting surface with the
surface preparation kit. Peel away the
adhesive liner.

To install the vent mount, find a horizontal vent that is strong enough to hold your NeXus
and its 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.

Peel off adhesive liner.

Either orientation may be used.


To insert the vent
mount, push it into
the vent as shown.

Attach the car cradle to either mount by
sliding it into place.


Follow the on screen instructions to choose the
same frequency as you chose on your car stereo.
You should now be able to hear XM through your
car stereo.



Firmly press the swivel mount to the
surface for 30 seconds. Allow 24
hours before using the mount.


You can adjust the
tension of the mount
with a screwdriver.

For best FM Modulator performance, you must locate the satellite radio antenna
in a location that is in close proximity to the vehicle’s FM antenna.

Avoid kinking, crimping, twisting or chafing the cable. Use pre-existing wire
channels when possible.

For option 1 and rear mounting locations, route the cable into the trunk as
shown. Always cross the weather seal at the lowest part of the trunk to reduce
water leaks. From the trunk, route the cable into the passenger compartment
through available wire channels and then along the floor under the door jam
trim or under the carpet to the front of the passenger compartment. Do not
leave the cable loose in the passenger compartment where it is likely to be

For option 2 and front mounting locations, route the cable along the door jam
and into the vehicle as shown. Route the cable across the weather seal near the
bottom of the door to reduce water leaks.

Vehicle Installation Guidelines for XM Satellite Radio

This XM Receiver offers the listener a variety of options for connecting XM Satellite
Radio to your vehicle’s FM radio. XM research and lab test results show that using a
vehicle cassette adapter can best maximize the relationship between the best sound
quality and ease of installation. If your vehicle kit does not include a cassette adapter,
one should be available at your local retailer or visit, click “Shop XM

Using a cassette adapter for audio is the most popular and best sounding solution.
Please follow steps 1 through 4 below for mounting the satellite radio antenna and
securing the XM receiver and cables.

1. Cassette Adapter

A wired FM installation kit is available from your retailer for professional installation.
See your retailer for details. This solution is recommended if you cannot get
acceptable performance with the wireless FM modulator.

2. Wired FM (Professional Installation Recommended)

The XM receiver is equipped with a FM modulator which can transmit the XM audio
to your car’s FM radio without wires.

3. Wireless FM Modulator


Please note that the cables and antenna wire that has been supplied with your device
are supplied with permanently attached ferrite beads. It is the responsibility of the user
to use the cable and antenna wire with the ferrite beads.

The user is cautioned that changes or modifications not expressly approved by XM
Satellite Radio, Inc. can void the user’s authority to operate this device.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device
must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.

This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to
radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:

- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

IMPORTANT: For best wireless FM Modulator performance, you must locate the
satellite radio antenna in a location that is in close proximity to the vehicle’s FM

For example, with reference to Figure 1, if your FM antenna is located on a rear
fender or top of the roof, mount the XM antenna near the rear window location
(option 1). If your FM antenna is located on a front fender, mount the XM antenna
near the windshield location (option 2). Remember, the closer the satellite radio
antenna can be to the FM antenna, the better the wireless FM reception and sound
quality will be.

In order to optimize the operation of the wireless FM modulator, follow the
installation guidelines outlined in steps 1 through 4 below:

First, determine the proper location for your satellite radio antenna based on the
following criteria for your specific vehicle:

You must locate the satellite radio antenna on the top of the roof either in front
of the rear window (option 1) or behind the windshield (option 2). The satellite
radio antenna will perform best if magnetically attached to a steel surface with
an unobstructed view of the open sky and minimum of 3 to 6 inches of metal
surrounding the antenna.

When routing the antenna cable along the windshield or rear window, tuck the
antenna cable under the window seal to maintain a professional looking
installation and to avoid loose wires on the exterior of the vehicle which are
susceptible to damage. Follow the interior cable routing diagram depicted by
dashed lines in Figure 1 where possible.

Step 1:

Be sure to locate your car cradle and receiver below the top of the dash in your
vehicle to keep the product within easy reach while driving. Choosing a lower
location in your installation should also make it easier to manage the cables and
achieve a more desirable appearance when the installation is completed. A lower
location for the receiver in the vehicle will ensure that the installation does not cause
interference with other FM radios outside the vehicle.

See illustration below (Fig 2) and be sure to locate your car cradle within the shaded

Step 2:

Fig 2

Once you have plugged the power
and antenna jacks in to the car
cradle, use the included cable
organizer as shown in figure 3 to
improve the overall appearance of
the installation.

Re-use the cable twist ties that were
provided with the power adaptor
and car antenna cables and always
be sure to gather, bundle, twist tie,
and secure any excess cable
remaining after determining the best
location for your satellite radio

Step 3:

For example, secure the excess cable up under your dash board, between the seat
and the console, or on the floor under a seat or floor mat. This will help to prevent
the excess cable from interfering with the everyday use of your vehicle, improve
the appearance of the installation, and avoid any undesirable accidental damage
to the cables that might result in loss of power or satellite signal.

For wireless FM modulator installations, securing and tie wrapping the excess
cable is important to reduce background hissing noise. Be sure to choose a
location carefully by taking notice of how doors and trunks open and close, as well
as how seats move when they are adjusted so you can be certain there is ample
clearance provided for the cables.
