How many hours of XM content can be stored on your MyFi for later playback?
You can store up to 5 hours of XM content on your MyFi. This is useful if you are unable to receive a live XM signal from the satellite.
What are the three antennas that come with the MyFi?
How does the MyFi antenna work?
The MyFi contains a built-in antenna that works best when your MyFi receiver is upright. For best results, a belt clip is provided to hold the MyFi in the proper position; laying the MyFi down flat may weaken reception. A wearable antenna is included for improved signal reception. MyFi's antenna should have an unobstructed view of the XM satellites in the southern sky. In large cities, XM also has a network of ground repeaters to help increase the signal coverage. The signal may weaken inside a building, however, the 5-hour memory mode could be used. Satellite reception depends on the ability of the antenna to receive a signal.
How does it work in a vehicle?
The receiver accepts the 150 Channel, XM signal through the mini-micro antenna and plays in the vehicle with three different options. The tape adaptor comes with the unit and the built-in wireless FM transmitter makes any radio an XM radio. Simply turn the radio to the same station as the receiver¿s preset FM frequency and 100% digital music will be playing through the vehicle¿s speakers. The third option is the FM Direct adaptor, which plugs into the head unit and cuts out all other FM frequencies so the receiver¿s transmitter works with no interference.
How does the wireless FM transmitter work?
Because many vehicles today have the FM antenna in the front or rear window, the internal FM Modulator also transmits the FM signal via the XM antenna as this is closer to the actual vehicle¿s FM antenna.
How many user-selected frequencies can the built-in FM Modulator on the MyFi receiver transmit audio on, turning any FM radio into an XM radio?

Clock & more
Can I get up-to-date sports scores with my MyFi?
Yes. MyFi has a sports ticker that is customizable to your favorite teams. The MyFi also has a stock ticker that displays your customized stocks and scrolls them continuously.
Can the MyFi be used on an airplane?
The FCC and FAA have not certified the MyFi, SKYFi or Roady radio products for use in any aircraft (neither portable nor permanent installation). Therefore, Delphi cannot support this type of application or installation. However, the five-hour play back feature will work best in this situation.
What does the jump button do?
This feature allows the MyFi receiver to easily switch between the last two channels that were tuned to. The jump button can be found on the included remote control.
What is tune select?
Tune select automatically alerts you when 20 of your favorite songs or artists are playing on any other XM channel. Simply press and hold the ¿Select¿ button for 3 seconds to add the song or artist playing into the tune select bank.
How do you set the clock on the MyFi?
XM automatically sets the minutes of your MyFi's built-in clock. You can adjust the hours by time zone, choose 12- or 24-hour formats, and choose whether Daylight Savings Time is used in your area.
How do I delete individual songs that I have recorded in the memory mode?
The only memory in the Delphi MyFi in which you can delete individual entries is "TuneSelect," the others are simply rolling memories that write until full, then roll over and write over the oldest entry.
What type of information is stored when the Memory Button on the front panel of the MyFi receiver is pressed?
A screen print of the artist, song title, channel number and channel name for easy recall.
What vehicle mounting options are there for the MyFi?
The MyFi comes with a swivel dash mount, vent adaptor, or the hook-and-loop fastening tape for your convenience.
Does the antenna work if placed inside the vehicle?
It is recommended to install the antenna on the roof of the vehicle for optimal performance. If this is not an option, placing the antenna on the dashboard as close to the windshield as possible will still get you the proper signal to hear XM radio. It is possible to experience disruption with the antenna located inside the vehicle.
Does MyFi work with any other Delphi accessories?
The MyFi works with the Delphi XM Signal Repeater, the FM Direct Adaptor, the 50¿ Antenna Extension Cable, and it¿s very own remote. The existing home antenna and audio patches work with the MyFi. The current RoadyXT AC power adaptor also works with this unit.
