CHAPTER
Thank you for purchasing the Aux2Car interface. This interface will allow you
to connect a line level audio input to you vehicle’s factory radio without the
use of a noisy RF modulator. The Aux2Car interface is the best way to add
mobile video, satellite radio, MP3 players or other hand held media devices to
your factory radio.
Installation Preparation
This chapter provides information required for the
installation of the Aux2Car adaptor, it must be read by all users.
Thank you for purchasing the Aux2Car adaptor. Since the Aux2Car
will work in many different vehicles the following steps must be taken
to ensure that it is set up correctly for the vehicle it is being installed in.
Before Installation
To prevent damage to your vehicle and the interface, take the following precautions.
NOTE: If the vehicle is equipped with an on-board drive or navigation computer, do not disconnect the battery cable. If the battery cable is disconnected, the
computer memory may be lost. Under these conditions, use extra caution to avoid causing
a short circuit during installation. If your radio has a security code make sure you know the
code and how to enter it prior to removing the battery cable. The radio will require this code
to operate when the battery terminal is reconnected.
1.
Do not install the unit in the following locations:
A. Locations exposed to direct sunlight
B. Locations where hot air flows from the car’s heater
First Step (For All Vehicles)
The first and most important step in using the Aux2Car is setting the dip-switches on the
interface; this makes the Auxillary source compatible with the vehicle it is being installed in.
The Aux2Car adaptor will not work if this step is not followed correctly.
IMPORTANT!!! Dip Switch settings must be made while unit is unplugged from vehicle. Changes to dip switch settings will not be recognized untill unit is powered down,
then powered up again.
The dip switches can be found on the side of the interface which connects to the source.
Switches are in the “ON” position when they are switched down. Aux2Car settings for each
vehicle can be found on the vehicles installation page. Refer to the index to find the page
number within this manual that covers your vehicle.
