iPod adapter information
It is not possible to run the iPod adapter parallel with a Satellite
Radio tuner module. However, a portable satellite radio unit can
be connected to the head unit through the "AUX" port.
Charging
The interface automatically
charges the iPod's battery when
connected and the key is in the
ACC/ON position.
The icon appearing
on the upper right
corner of the iPod
screen indicates
charging.
Hierarchy structure of the iPod interface
Browsing hierarchy structure
Music stored on the iPod is classified based on the Song name,
Artist and Album information contained within each Track. Music
purchased from online stores comes with accurate Track
information, but you may need to update these fields* if music
content originates from ripping CD. A large music collection
typically results in having 100s of Artists with 1000s of Albums.
An arbitrary list of Songs maybe organized into a Playlist (using
iTunes); you may have many Playlists.
To play a desired Song within an Album, you may browse through
a long list of Albums. Alternatively, you may narrow down the
selection using Playlist as the primary filter, Artist as the 2nd level
filter and Album as the 3rd and final filter. This type of approach is
a more efficient way to get to a desired music selection.
* Artist and Album tag info are embedded in each song. Please refer to iTunes' info tag screen (CTRL+I on a
PC,
+ I on a Mac) to verify and correct Song information as needed.
By default, the iPod interface creates a Playlist having a name
that is the same as the iPod's. This Playlist is the very first on the
list of Playlists shown while browsing with the category select
keys in Playlist Mode. Note that this “all content” Playlist may
have as many as several thousand songs, therefore it should not
be used for general browsing, but for random content playback
with the Shuffle Mode engaged, or for further filtering by Artist and
Album. Once a Playlist is active an Artist maybe selected within
that Playlist using the Artist Mode. Albums by the selected Artist
and within the selected Playlist may be selected in Album Mode.
"ALL ARTIST" and "ALL ALBUM" designate all available content
in those categories.
BROWSING HIERARCHY STRUCTURE

PODCAST AUDIOBOOK
ARTIST
ALBUM
To select an Album that is not in the current list, you must go back
one filter level and select the Artist having the desired album first,
before the actual Album could be selected. You may also go back
to the top filter level by selecting a different Playlist having the
content.
We do not recommend putting Podcast andAudiobook content
into a Playlist because if an Audiobook is added to a Playlist then
tune dial will not take you to the next Chapter but to the following
entry of the Playlist. Playlists can only contain Episodes of a
Podcast.
