Overview: The Delphi FM Direct
Adaptor is designed to work with the SKYFi2, Roady2 and MyFi XM Satellite receivers.
The adaptor optimizes the XM receiver'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. The adaptor connects directly in-line with the vehicle's
existing AM/FM antenna input.
Connections: The FM Direct
Adaptor features the following connections:
- To FM Radio: Male Motorola
antenna plug on a 38" cable--plugs into the vehicle's AM/FM radio
- To FM Antenna: Female
Motorola antenna jack on a 38" cable--accepts the vehicle's antenna cable
- XM Antenna: Female SMB
jack on the side of the module--accepts the XM Radio antenna supplied with
the SKYFi2 car kit, the Roady2 or the MyFi system
- To XM Radio: Male SMB plug
on a 40" micro-cable--plugs into the SKYFi2 car kit, the Roady2 or the MyFi system
Power Socket: The Roady2
receiver, the SKYFi2's car kit and the MyFi system come with a cigarette lighter power
adapter. If you desire a hardwired power connector for the XM Receiver, you can
wire the supplied cigarette lighter power socket to the vehicle's power wiring.
This allows you to hide the SKYFi2, Roady2 or MyFi cigarette lighter adapter out
of sight, and free up the vehicle's cigarette lighter.
Installation: The FM Direct
Adaptor can be tie-wrapped to existing under-dash structures or under a seat.
Care should be taken to prevent the unit from rattling or cables from being cut
or chafed by moving parts.
Antenna Adapters: Some vehicles
(such as select GM vehicles, Volkswagens, Nissans, etc.) may require antenna
adapters in order to connect the FM Direct Adaptor to your vehicle's OEM antenna
connectors. Please consult the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to see if OEM
antenna adapters are needed.
