Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

unit is very easy to install,took about a half hour to install unit in dash,and about 5 minutes to run wires.wiring very flexiable and easy to hide and tuck all conections.

Pros: very simple to install

Cons: none

Poor excuse for a dock

Written by: Rick H from Sarasota, FL on April 14, 2013

See my review for the SiriusXM Edge reciever. I bought a second dock kit for the reciever, to use in my company car and RV. If you already have a receiver, you are familiar with the mounting system. The ball mount is difficult to tighten securely. With rear mounting, screws are needed to supplement the sticky tape. Rear mount latches into the dock. Bottom mount has no latch and the dock will fall off the mount when accelerating unless it is angled back significantly. No hardwire power supply kit is offered, so you must rig a auxiliary power socket if you want to conceal the wiring. A separate stereo phone plug to RCA plug adapter (not included) is needed for use with RCA jacks.

Pros: Includes antenna. Slim design with recessed I/O jacks.

Cons: Flimsy mounting hardware, no hardwire option for power adapter.

Service was great!!!!!!!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't tell you how great Crutchfield was on my recent order. The product was shipped in a very timely manner and the follow up from Crutchfield was out of this world. With service like that I will be a return customer. Great job Crutchfield.

Pros: Service, shipping & follow up was great.

Cons: None.

Great Expectations Fulfilled

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We had the XM XpressRCi installed yesterday and so far it works beautifully, however when I placed my order over the phone I also ordered the two (2) year extended warranty. My invoice does not reflect that and I would not have purchased the refurbished XM XpressRCi without it.



Excellent item for the XM RCi

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had an XM RCi but did not know that you needed a Power Connect to make the FM
Modulator work. Earlier XM units had this built in but the FCC finally had them
removed since cars in the vicinity would have interference with the XM broadcast
bleeding into the FM band. Anyway this item was a breeze to setup and as usual
Crutchfield had the handy dandy manual included. My XM Express RCI now feeds via
a FM frequency with no problem. Note: You can still directly feed a RCi via the
Line out into the Aux of newer vehicles but if you got an old one this is a
perfect fit and solution ! Again Thank You Crutchfield for your help. A happy
customer since 1986 !!

Product Research


Overview: The XM Dock & Play PowerConnect Second Vehicle Kit (XADV2) allows you to install your XM or SiriusXM Satellite Radio Dock & Play Tuner (220XDNX1V1 or 220EDGE, both sold separately) in a second vehicle.

Vehicle Dock: The XM Dock & Play PowerConnect Vehicle Kit includes a Power/Connect vehicle dock to connect your compatible XM Satellite Radio tuner. The vehicle dock features color-coded connectors to assist you in connecting the cables to the correct connector. The vehicle dock also has a rear-panel wire-guide that can help you organize the cables and wires connected to the dock. The vehicle dock provides three connection options to transfer XM Satellite Radio audio to your vehicle's audio system.

  • PowerConnect: The XM Dock & Play PowerConnect Second Vehicle Kit comes supplied with a PowerConnect FM transmitter/cigarette lighter adapter which allows your XM Satellite Radio receiver to wirelessly transmit audio to your vehicle's in-dash headunit over and FM frequency. You can choose from any FM frequency between: 88.1 and 107.9 MHz. You can store up to 5 FM stations so you can quickly access the stations which give you the best audio reception when using the PowerConnect. The PowerConnect FM transmitter/cigarette lighter adapter simply plugs into the power port of the included vehicle dock and the cigarette lighter or 12-volt accessory port of your vehicle.
  • Auxiliary: The vehicle dock has a minijack audio output (3.5mm) to connect the unit directly to your in-dash headunit's auxiliary input (if applicable), using the supplied stereo minijack cable. When using the line output jack, you can adjust the level to match your headunit's other sources.
  • FM Direct (optional): The FM Direct Adaptor (607FMDA25, sold separately) connects directly in-line with your vehicle's existing AM/FM antenna input (Motorola) and the XADV2 vehicle dock's FM output (2.5mm). This optimizes the signal of the PowerConnect FM transmitter/cigarette lighter adapter's built-in FM modulator to your vehicle's radio, especially in regions with a high density of FM radio stations and few open FM channels.

Magnetic Antenna: The XM Dock & Play PowerConnect Second Vehicle Kit unit comes supplied with a magnetic antenna that is designed to be run outside of the vehicle and placed on the roof of your vehicle. The magnetic antenna will adhere to your vehicle's sheet metal.

Mounting: The mounting location of the XADV2 should be easily accessible for controlling your docked XM receiver and provide good visibility of the unit's display, and should not be located where it will be in direct sunlight, which will affect the visibility of the display screen. The XM Dock & Play Power Connect Second Vehicle Kit comes with two mounting options.

  • Self-Adhesive Dash Mount: The XADV2 includes a self-adhesive plastic mount which allows you to place the unit on your vehicle's dash. The self-adhesive dash-mount allows you to swivel and adjust the unit for better visibility.
  • Vent Mount: The XADV2 also includes a vent mount bracket, so the unit can be mounted to your air conditioning vent.

Note: When mounting the XADV2 in your vehicle, choose a location where it will not block your vision, interfere with the controls, or obstruct the air bag.
