    It's entirely possible that your GPS unit is not susceptible to the issue and may not go into sleep mode because the OS detects that the device is in use. As I said, it's a problem known to Garmin...

    Yes, I'm using the supplied power cord for the adapter. I am also supplying 12VDC to the XM Direct using a cable wired per the instructions above. The USB Adapter is working in-so-much as the...
  15. Using XM Direct 2 with Centrafuse?

    OK, I just did some digging on XM Direct 2. According to the following page the unit already includes USB for programming the unit. Does it also mean you can simply hook up the XM Direct 2 directly...

    OK, I downloaded XMID and it does not find the XM Radio. What happens is that when you start the software after about 4 seconds it announces that no radio is found. I turned on the debug window and...

    OK, I got the only USB interface for XM on the mp3car.com site. Can you point me to the page for the correct item? If I cannot get this working I'll send the "old model" back to mp3car.com and get...

    OK, I've got it wired up and the USB driver installed. Centrafuse finds the USB XM-Direct controller, but there are no channels listed. The behavior is the same whether the XM-Direct is plugged...
