Listening Safely
Do not wear headphones, earphones, or earbuds while
operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create
a traffic hazard and could be illegal in some areas. To protect
your hearing, follow these guidelines:
• Do not listen at high volume levels. Extended highvolume listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting. Then turn on your
audio device and adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
• Avoid increasing the volume. Your ears will adapt to the
volume level, so a level that does not cause discomfort
could still damage your hearing.
Reset the Radio
If the radio or the display fails to operate properly, use a
pointed object (such as a toothpick) to press the RESET
button on the back of the radio. The clock time and preset
stations are cleared.
