Your iPod will operate the same when connected in the car as it does when you listen to it with headphones. You can access up to the first 5 playlists (depending on mode chose and iPod used) and you’ll also have track control from the radio buttons and steering wheel (if available) by using the track up, track down, fast forward and reverse buttons to change songs.

Volvo Models Compatible Yrs Compatible S40, V40 2001-2004 S60 2001-2008 S80 1999-2006 XC70 2003-2007 V70 2001-2007 Must have HU series radio. If you have NAV/GPS you must order a Volvo Harness Converter from Neo Car Audio The Neo ProLink connects your iPod directly to your stereo by connecting to the external CD changer port on the back of the radio. It will replace the external 6-disc CD changers. External CD changers plug into the actual radio and therefore it is not possible to have both an external 6-disc CD changer and the Neo ProLink connected at the same time. The CD player/changer which is an “in-dash” built into the radio will not be affected. WARNING! Do not allow the Apple iPod to distract you from driving! Only operate the unit when stationary or ask passengers to operate it for you. Neither Neo Car Audio Inc., Apple Computer, Inc., its regional offices, distributors or resellers accept any responsibility for any damage or injury as a result of using Neo iPod Integration Kits. The use of this product constitutes your acceptance of our terms and conditions. Please return the kit immediately if you do not agree. Exercise good judgment and keep your eyes on the road at all times! Use only the iPod connector cable which comes with the Neo Adapter. Do NOT plug in any other ipod cable from any other kit. Other cable’s may look similar, but can cause damage to iPod and especially to the Neo adapter. IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS - PLEASE READ BEFORE INSTALLING Before you begin the installation, you need to set the dip switches to the correct settings – depending on how you choose to use it. They can be changed at ANY time if you change your mind. Make sure Power is OFF and box is unplugged before making changes. Also, NEVER permanently hide the box, it should be placed somewhere for you to access easily. DIP SWITCH NUMBER ONE: Aux Input Option The Neo ProLink adapter comes equipped with a second AUX input which is an RCA connector. This second AUX input allows you to connect two devices to this adapter; an iPod and any other audio device that has a headphone or RCA jack. You will need to use an RCA to headphone jack cable (not included). To access AUX source, go to CD 6 Track 1 after selecting CD changer SOURCE on the radio. Selected Mode AUX OFF AUX ON iPod Dip Switch Position 1 ON – DWN OFF – UP AUX INPUT ACTIVE NO YES If you would like to use the AUX input (now or in the future), please make sure its set to OFF / UP. If you are NOT going to use the AUX and you don’t foresee yourself using it anytime soon, set it to ON / DOWN DIP SWITCH NUMBER TWO: IPOD CONFIGURATION - 2 MODES TO CHOOSE FROM: dvanced Mode. Operate and control the iPod like it is a CD Changer. This mode allows you to access up to six playlist on the iPod. The instructions for playlist creation and playback control are later in this manual. Additionally, while in Advanced Mode, the iPod will operate as it does normally. Your iPod screen will NOT be locked out. iTouch, iPhone and G3 iPod are NOT applicable in Advance Mode. Important: After plugging in your iPod you will see an “ok to disconnect”, followed by a series of iPod initialization screens for up to 30 seconds before your iPod menu returns to normal. If your ipod does not go back to normal, you will need to UPDATE the ipod to the newest firmware. Direct Mode. If you prefer to use the adapter for next and previous track ONLY, Direct Mode is the best option. Text, playlist, etc, are not supported. Track numbers and times are not synchronized between the iPod and radio. Because there is less data to transfer between the iPod and the radio, the response time is quicker than Advanced Mode. iPod is accessed ONLY from disc 5.

Some radio models require a SAFETY code to resume radio operation from battery power loss) Step 2: Disconnect existing CD changer from the radio if there is one Step 3: Connect the black wire on the Volvo cable to the radio chassis or car body (GROUND) Step 4: Locate the 12v (CONSTANT POWER) wire on the power harness going into the radio and connect the yellow wire on the Volvo cable to 12v constant.

IS YOUR IPOD UP TO DATE? If the radio recognizes the adapter, but the control is NOT correct, your iPod is not up to date. Check Apple for the latest FW version updates. You must update your iPod. USING THE NEO ADAPTER As mentioned before, setting up playlists is NOT required. But to take full advantage of our adapter when in Advanced Mode and its quick music browsing system, we recommend you have your music organized in playlists on your iPod before using your iPod Integration Kit. Once again this is not needed, but may help in overall use. Study Your Radio’s Manual ! Please review the owner's manual for your vehicle's entertainment system. This guide does not provide details on the various button-specific features. Every radio is different and have buttons assigned to perform specific functions. It is up to you to determine which buttons correspond to the adapter’s functions. Important: Not all radio’s have the capabilities to perform every function that adapter can, this will depend on the radio capabilities and/or which level of radio came with your car (base, premium, etc..) General Operation A Connect the iPod to the docking cable B Turn on your radio C Select the CD Changer source. (CD, CDC, DISC button etc) When the iPod is connected to the adapter, the iPod screen will go blank for a few seconds before the normal screen returns OR go through initialization depending on which mode you chose. Push the CD button to access the iPod (if you have a CD player/changer, press the button twice). The CD button is the ONLY button that will access our adapter. For a few seconds the iPod may cycle through a set of screens while it initializes in the Advanced Mode. Wait for the iPod screen to return to normal before making any selections or changes to iPod. If playback does not automatically begin, then select a playlist or song. You can browse music directly on your iPod radio or steering wheel.

Changing to the Aux input: To change to your Aux device, press Disc up until you get to DISC 6. There may be slight delay times when changing tracks depending on the radio software loaded from the factory and how quickly it will communicate with the adapter and the iPod. If the or buttons are pressed very quickly and the iPod has not been allowed enough time to change tracks, the track number display on the radio may not load correctly. You will also hear short bits of audio if these buttons are pressed too quickly.
