MP3/WMA File Requirements
This player allows you to play back MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R/
RWs, DVD+R/RWs, and DVD-R/RWs. For CD-RW discs, please make sure it
is formatted using the full method and not the quick method to prevent illegal
disc operation.
Up to 1500 songs/files can be burned onto a disc for a DVD music mix. Do not
exceed this number of songs/files or disc readability problems may occur.
MP3 Format Compatibility
The file naming formats listed below are compatible with this unit:
• ISO 9660 – file name: 12 characters, file extension: 3 characters
• ISO 9660 – file name: 31 characters, file extension: 3 characters
• Joliet – 64 characters
If the file or folder name does not conform to ISO 9660 file system standards, it
may not be displayed or played back correctly. Use the following settings when
compressing audio data for your MP3 disc:
• Transfer Bit Rate: 128kbps
• Sampling Frequency: 48kHz
When recording MP3 up to the maximum disc capacity, disable additional
writing. For recording on an empty disc up to maximum disc capacity, use the
"Disc at once" setting.
NOTE: When burning MP3 / WMA files onto a DVD disc, use the 2X or 4X
burning option, if available. This slower burning speed will help
eliminate buffer errors and increase disc reading reliability. Also, use
folders when burning large numbers of songs / files to a disc for easy
music navigation. Select the "Disc at Once” option and close your disc.
MP3 Playing Order
When selected for play, files and folders (Folder Search, File Search or Folder
Select) are accessed in the order they were written by the CD writer. As a
result, the order in which they are expected to be played may not match the
order in which they are actually played. You may be able to set the order in
which MP3/WMA files are to be played by writing them onto a medium such as
a CD-R with their file names beginning with play sequence numbers such as
"01" to "99".
33
VM9424
For example, a medium with the following folder/file hierarchy is subject to
Folder Search, File Search or Folder Select, as shown below.
The VM9424 player will only recognize three folder levels and does not display
folders containing only other folders. In the example above, the unit will display
folders 3, 4, 6, and 8, but not 2 and 7 since they do not contain any tracks
directly. Folder 5 is not recognized at all since it is at the fourth level.

BLUETOOTH OPERATION
NOTE: Bluetooth operation requires optional BTM10 accessory.
About Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless radio connectivity technology that is
developed as a cable replacement for mobile phones, handheld PCs and other
devices. Bluetooth operates in 2.4 GHz frequency range and transmits voice
and data at speeds up to 1 megabit per second. Bluetooth was launched by a
special interest group (SIG) comprised of Ericsson Inc., Intel Corp., Nokia
Corp., Toshiba and IBM in 1998, and it is currently developed by nearly 2,000
companies worldwide. The Bluetooth word mark and logos are owned by the
Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Audiovox Corporation is
under license. Other trademarks and trade names are those of their respective
owners.
NOTE: The line-of-sight distance between this unit and your cellular
phone must be 8 meters or less for sending and receiving voice and data
via Bluetooth wireless technology. However, the transmission distance
may become shorter than the estimated distance, depending on the
environment in use.
Before attempting to use the Bluetooth functions on the VM9424, you must
purchase and install the BTM10. When connected properly, the blue light
appears illuminated. Bluetooth features are only available when the BTM10 is
installed.
Please make sure your mobile phone supports Bluetooth functions (Headset
or Handsfree profiles or both). Adhere to the following guidelines for
successful operation.
• Before using Bluetooth functions, you must pair your mobile phone to the

INTRODUCTION
We hope that you enjoy using your new navigation system. This navigation
system leads you straight to your destination. You can navigate and plan your
route with an easy-to-use and intuitive interface, plan your trip to suit your
personal preferences and interests, and find and save (bookmark) interesting
destinations before you begin your trip.

About GPS and GNSS
The VM9424 uses a vehicle GPS (Global Positioning System)-based
navigation device which utilizes digital map data to guide you from your
selected location A to location B, using location information obtained from a
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS).
A GNSS consists of a set of satellites that transmit high-frequency radio
signals containing time, direction, and distance data that can be picked up by a
receiver, allowing users to pinpoint their precise locations anywhere around
the globe. Navigation Satellite Receivers (GPS devices) use this transmitted
information to calculate an exact location on the earth. Every point on Earth
can be identified by latitude and longitude. The receiver uses the information
sent by at least three satellites and determines the coordinates of the receiving
device.
By comparing the time the signals were transmitted from the satellites and the
time they were recorded, the receiver calculates how far away each satellite is.
The distance of the receiver from three or more satellites reflects its position
on the surface of the planet. Using these distance measurements, the receiver
might also be able to calculate speed, bearing, trip time, distance to
destination, altitude, etc. The GPS position may be displayed as a point on a
digital map (at least hree satellites' signals must be received) and as the GPS
device moves the corresponding trace is displayed as well.
Please keep in mind that although the radio signals of navigation satellites will
pass through clouds, glass, plastic, and other lightweight materials, satellitenavigation receivers will not work underground or in some enclosed spaces.
59
VM9424
Horizon NavMate Navigation / Tele Atlas Map Data
The navigation map data covers the continental US, Alaska and Hawaii.
The initial GPS location lock is best established when your vehicle is parked. If
the device is in motion, the signal can take longer to initially connect. Once the
initial coordinates are established, the software will follow you as you move
and navigate.
NOTE: It may take up to 5 minutes to establish the first connection.
Subsequent connections will be faster (30 seconds to 1 minute), but if
you have not used the unit for several days or are very far away from the
last location you used it, it may take up to 5 minutes again to find a
strong signal.

VM9424
BASIC OPERATION
Acquiring a Satellite Signal
Drive your vehicle to an open area where the GPS signal can be clearly
received and park the vehicle. If the device is in motion, the signal can take
longer to initially connect.
With the ignition on, verify that the "GPS" indicator is green. It may take up to 5
minutes to establish the first connection. Subsequent connections will be
faster (30 seconds to 1 minute), but if you have not used the unit for several
days or are very far away from the last location you used it, it may take up to 5
minutes again to find a strong signal. If you cannot acquire the signal, drive to
another location. If the signal is still unobtainable, check your antenna
installation.
Once a GPS signal has been established, verify that the information display
clock time (time displayed on the radio) matches the navigation system clock.
With an established GPS signal, the software will follow you as you move and
navigate.
The GPS symbol (
)may change colors indicating the strength of the
signal. The GPS symbol colors mean:
• Green - GPS signal is free from obstruction and is being received regularly
- at least four satellites are being received.
• Yellow - GPS signal is partially obstructed which means only three
satellites are being received.
• Red - GPS signal is unavailable, meaning two or fewer satellites are being
received.

Using the Cosmetic Trim Ring
Two cosmetic trim rings are packaged with the head unit for
installation exibility. This unit will t into most import dashes
with little or no modication to the dash board/cavity. Some US
domestic vehicle dashes will accept a Double-DIN chassis, but
there is usually a small gap between the radio and dash piece after installation is complete. In this case, use the appropriate trim
ring to conceal any gaps that may be present.
NOTE: For proper operation of the CD/DVD player, the chassis
must be mounted within 30° of horizontal. Make sure the unit
is mounted within this limitation.
