Mount the antenna with a clear view of the sky outdoors pointing approximately due South at an approximate elevation angle of 45º.
Connect the docking port and mini-tuner as shown above to the antenna and receiver.
Use the accessories menu on the radio to locate the XM signal strength read out.
Adjust the elevation and azimuth angle of the antenna to maximize the signal strength on one of the XM satellites. Both satellites (Rock & Roll) carry redundant content and are located at 115º W. Long and 85º W Long. Exact pointing angles to the satellites based on zip code can be obtained here. However since the antenna has over a 30º beam width, exact pointing angles are usually not required to achieve a good signal
Adjust the antenna until the signal strength is 75% or higher and lock the antenna in place.
