Downloading the Firmware Update Tool:
  • Click on the following URL: Firmware Update
  • Click on XM Firmware Update Client to download the client
  • When prompted, choose "Save"
  • The resulting action window allows you to choose where this file will be saved. In the "Save In" area at the top, use the drop-down arrow to select "Desktop". Click "Save" at the bottom right corner

Connecting to the PC:
  • If you have a home dock for your radio
