The XM Direct universal tuner makes it easy to get XM Satellite Radio in your car. In conjunction with a brand-specific XM Direct Smart Digital Adapter, it's designed to be compatible with several receiver brands, including Sony, Kenwood, Alpine, Pioneer, and Panasonic.
To connect the XM Direct tuner to your compatible receiver, you'll also need to buy the adapter that matches your brand of receiver. Install the super-compact tuner and the adapter, and you're ready to receive the XM signal. XM Direct even includes the required XM antenna right in the box.
Once the XM Direct universal tuner is connected, you can use your in-dash receiver to select channels (by category or station number) and view station information (artist, album title, track title, channel number, or channel name) on its readout. (The information on your display may vary, depending on the receiver.)
You must have a subscription to XM in order to tune in the digital satellite radio signal. (Satellite radio service is available only within the lower 48 states not available in Alaska, Hawaii, or U.S. territories.)
