Dnx-7100 and XM

How did you hook up XM with a 7100. All manuals say that the terk stuff is not compatible and I have tried direct and direct 2 with no luck. I have been struggling to get XM on this unit. I just attempted to hook up a GXM-30 to my DNX-7100 and was informed by the XM people when I went to register it that the GXM-30 would not provide radio audio with this unit. I went ahead and registered the GXM-30 and they were absolutely correct, it tunes to the channels, but I have no audio. Unfortunately between Garmin, Kenwood, and XM I have yet to speak to a single person who seems to have even the slightest clue as to what may be the problem, but they all have been highly proficient at blaming each other. I probably have betwwen 6-8 hours tied up on the phone mostly on hold between the three. I truly would appreciate any help on this as I am tired of pulling the radio in and out of the dash.

    The connections are correct, there is only one DIN connection to the GXM-30 and the audio works with all other functions

To turn on the function, you have to go to the "settings" menu --> AV Interface Setup. On the top right corner of the screen you need to switch to the 3rd page. The last option is "Navigation Source", turn it on.
Let me know if that helps,

    Nice try gopi =|. Yes that is all companies do is blame each other it's actually quite ridiculous. It's easier to do that then offer any real support.
    Keep me posted,

What type of car is it? Make sure the Black (Ground) lead for the radio is connected to an adequate ground wire in the harness or to chassis metal. Some vehicles (Nissan, Mitsubishi) have no ground lead in their harnesses and need to be grounded to bare metal.

DNX 7100 E brake over ride wire?


In your install manual, it'll tell you which wire in the harness of the DVD player is the e-brake wire. Simply run that to any screw under the dash that is screwed into metal framework. If it is in the plastic parts of the dash, it won't work. Find a screw that threads into metal, put a ring terminal on the wire, put the screw/bolt through it, and tighten it down, and you're done.

Kenwood dnx 7100 shuts off sporadically


If it is shutting off and coming right back on I would defintley take another look at your ground connection. This is the most likley cause for the sudden turn offs. Especially if it comes right back on.

Factory controls interface?


Call these guys at hifiaudio.com and purchase the SWC module that matches your vehicle (ask for Scroche brand). Once you purchase the SWC module, make sure you read the installation instructions two or three times before you install it. Once installed, these SWC units work great. I just completed the installation on my 2008 F150 with the Kenwood DNX-7100 and my steering wheel interface works perfectly.

In order to access the DNX7100's bulit in SD card slot, you have to press the CD/DVD eject button for about 5 secs. It will fold down to reveal the SD slot. This slot is only used for Software and Map updates via a SD Card.
