About the XM Direct™ Satellite Radio Package

Is the factory stereo in your Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury XM-ready? Reluctant to pay dealership prices to get the equipment you need for XM service? Then this is the solution for you.

Is the factory stereo in your Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury XM-ready? Reluctant to pay dealership prices to get the equipment you need for XM service? Then this is the solution for you.

The XM Direct package includes everything necessary to play XM over your compatible factory stereo: an XM tuner box, a roof-mount antenna, and the adapter cable that connects the tuner to your stereo.

The tuner box is compact, so you can mount it easily in a convenient spot behind the dash. The adapter cable connects to the tuner at one end, and your factory stereo at the other, providing both signal to the stereo and power to the tuner. The antenna mounts magnetically on your vehicle's roof, and connects to tuner box. The cable also has a pass-through that lets you keep an extra component, such as a factory (or factory-compatible) CD changer, connected to the system.

Note: Your factory stereo must be XM-ready to work with this package. Please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to check compatibility. If you're not sure whether or not your factory stereo is XM-ready, ask your local dealership.

Note: A subscription to XM is also required — learn about XM's programming. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Portable reception may vary by location. If you have questions about the proposed XM/SIRIUS merger, read the XM Customer Promise. To view this file, you will need the Adobe Acrobat PDF reader.

Note: this system will not work with your factory stereo if your vehicle has a rear-seat entertainment system installed.

Features

Overview: This package includes the XMD1000 universal XM Satellite Radio tuner, an XMDFOR100 Smart Digital Adapter, and a magnetic XM antenna. The adapter allows you to connect the XMD1000 tuner to select Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln vehicles with compatible factory radios; the adapter isn't compatible with vehicles equipped with an OEM rear seat entertainment system. In addition to the tuner, adapter, and antenna, you must have a subscription to XM Satellite Radio to receive XM programming.

XM Satellite Radio:XM Satellite Radio programming offers 170 digital radio channels including 69 channels of commercial free music, plus news, sports, talk, comedy, and other entertainment programming from coast to coast. XM also offers instant traffic and weather alerts for 21 major US cities, as well as live sports broadcasts from Major League Baseball, NHL, the PGA tour, Indy car racing and several major college conferences.

Antenna: The XMD1000 includes an ultra-thin Micro Antenna with a 19-3/4' cable. The strong magnetic base securely attaches the antenna to the vehicle. Best reception is achieved with the antenna mounted on a metal surface of the vehicle roof in the center of an area with at least 12" x 12" of surface area, and a minimum of 6" from a window or sunroof. The antenna has the following dimensions: W=1.769", H=0.654", D=2.323".

Cable Harness Connections: One end of the cable harness plugs into the adapter and the other end interfaces with the factory radio and wiring. The adapter end of the cable harness has a white 16-pin (15 pins present) rectangular plug. The radio side of the harness has the following two connectors: a gray 16-pin female connector and a tan 16-pin (8 pins present) male connector. The female connector plugs into the back of the factory radio and the male connector is used as a pass-through for other audio devices. A 6" jumper section is connected to the adapter side of the cable harness by two wires. The jumper section has a tan 24-pin female connector on one end and a tan 24-pin male connector on the other end. The female connector plugs into the back of the factory radio and the male connector interfaces with the factory wiring.
