Overview: The CD-INCAR2 vehicle kit allows
you to mount and play the Pioneer GEX-INNO2 portable XM Radio receiver (item 130INNO2) through your car audio system. It includes a car docking station (with dash and vent mounts), a remote control,
a cigarette lighter DC power adapter, a cassette adapter, a magnetic base XM antenna
and an XM SureConnect cable. In addition to the inno2
receiver, a subscription to XM satellite radio is needed.
Compatibility: The CD-INCAR2 car kit will
only work the Pioneer GEX-INNO2 inno2 XM receiver (item 130INNO2).
Note: The kit is not compatible with
GEX-INN01 XM receiver (item 130INNO).
XM Satellite Radio: XM
Satellite Radio programming offers more than 150 digital radio channels
including 65+ channels of commercial free music, plus news, sports, talk, comedy,
and other entertainment programming from coast to coast.
FM Modulator: The inno2 receiver contains a built-in
FM modulator that when docked in the CD-INCAR2 allows you to listen to whatever your inno2
is playing using your vehicle's FM radio without attaching any audio cables to
your car's head-unit. You will still need to mount the XM antenna for a
Satellite signal and use the cigarette lighter adapter for power.
XM SureConnect Cable:
The kit also features an XM SureConnect
cable that improves FM frequency transmission between you vehicle's FM antenna
an the built-in wireless FM transmitter inside the receiver. You will want to
place the XM antenna as close to your FM antenna as possible. The SureConnect
cable can then be clipped to your FM antenna if you have a fixed mount antenna
or stuck to the interior of the windshield if you have an In-Glass FM antenna.
The SureConnect cable plugs into the vehicle's dock antenna plug and the XM
antenna then plugs into the SureConnect cable. The SureConnect cable cannot be
used on retractable or motorized FM antennas.
Note: If you are not able
to use the XM SureConnect cable you will need to use either the supplied
tape adapter (if applicable) or use the optional professional wired FM
method of installation using the optional FM direct adapter (part #
040SA10112, sold separately). If your headunit has an auxiliary input you
can use the line-out connection
Important Note from
Crutchfield: Current FCC rules limit
the transmission strength of wireless FM transmitters to a point where
transmission needs to take place very near your FM antenna. XM includes
extra wiring in order to address this issue, but Crutchfield strongly
encourages customers to use an auxiliary input, wired FM modulator, or
cassette adapter to ensure satisfaction with the performance and cosmetics
of the satellite radio.
Antenna: The vehicle comes supplied with a
magnetic base XM antenna so it easily adheres to your vehicle's sheet metal. The
antenna is normally mounted on the roof or trunk of the vehicle.
12 Volt Adapter: The vehicle kit comes
supplied with a 12 Volt cigarette lighter adapter to provide a simple power
connection to your inno2 when placed in the car dock.
Tape Adapter: You can also choose to use
the supplied tape adapter to feed signal from your inno2 to your vehicle's
stereo system if you have an in-dash cassette player in your car. The tape
adapter inserts into your radio's cassette opening and its cable plugs into the
line-output connection on the left side of the inno2 car kit.
Remote Control: The supplied
compact remote control contains power, mode, volume up/down, four directional
cursers, XM select, record, pause/mute, bookmark, favorites, jump, and display
buttons, as well as a 0-9 numeric keypad.
Mounting Brackets: The car kit comes
with two mounting brackets. One swivels and has a self-adhesive pad and two
screw holes, it can be mounted to nearly any flat surface. The other features two clips that can be attached to an air vent.
The dock mounts to either bracket.
Front of Dock: The proprietary docking
connector transfers power, antenna signal, and audio signals to and from the
Left Side of Dock:

for use with supplied cassette audio adapter; using an optional audio cable,
you can connect the cradle directly to your receiver's auxiliary input (if
your receiver has one)
- DC In (5V): jack for use
with the supplied cigarette lighter power adapter
- Antenna Connection: single
SMB jack for use with supplied antenna; this is a single input that accepts
