Playing XM® Radio

Odyssey EX-L models and above are capable of receiving XM Radio* anywhere in the United States and Canada, except Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. To listen to XM Radio, turn the ignition switch to the ACCESSORY (I) or ON (II) position, and press the XM button. The system will play your last XM station selection. Each time you press the XM button, the band will change between XM1 and XM2 bands, each containing their own set of six preset stations. Push the AUDIO button to display XM information on the screen. You can operate the XM radio system with the conventional radio controls and the selector knob.

Channel and Category Mode

You can choose among XM stations in either Channel or Category mode. In Channel mode, you can select all available channels. In Category mode, you can select all channels within a category, such as Jazz, Rock, Classical, etc. To switch between category mode and channel mode, press MENU and rotate the selector knob to XM Tune Mode.

You may experience periods when XM Radio does not transmit the artist's name and song title information. If this happens, there is nothing wrong with your system.

Channel Selection

Use the touch-screen controls to change channel selections. In category mode, you can only select channels within that category.

Category Selection

The SCAN function gives you a sampling of all channels while in the channel mode. In the category mode, only the stations within that category are scanned. To activate, select More on the touch-screen, then select Scan.

Channel Presets

You can store up to 12 preset channels using the six preset buttons. Each button stores one channel from the XM1 band and one channel from the XM2 band.

To store a channel: Press the XM button. Either XM1 or XM2 will show in the display. Use the touch-screen to tune to a desired channel. Select More on the touch-screen, and select Save Preset. Select the preset number where you want to store the channel. Repeat to store the first six channels.
