6 Installation guide
6.1
Determination of required configuration
Before installation of your EGO FLASH, please note which features and connection options are provided by your car audio system. It
is advantageous when your audio has the following: a muting function, phone input and line-in. You can find out which of these input
options your audio system has in the documentation provided.
6.1.1 Vehicle
The EGO FLASH may only be installed in vehicles with 12 V, with the negative terminal connected to the chassis. If no car audio is
installed, an add-on speaker will be required. For the installation of the optional charging cradle, you will require a model-specific
mounting that may be purchased from a specialist dealer.
6.1.2 Mobile Telephone
Operation of the EGO FLASH requires a Bluetooth®-compatible mobile phone. You can find a list of supported Bluetooth® telephones
online at www.egohandsfree.com.
6.1.3 Muting (radio muting)
The muting function (Radio Muting) ensures that the audio sound is turned off during telephone calls. The system
supports the muting function. Your car`s audio documentation will show whether your car audio has a mute option. If your car audio
is not equipped with a muting option, you can install the optionally available Stereo Mute Box to facilitate speaker muting.
6.1.4 Converting the EGO FLASH into an already-installed Funkwerk hands-free car kit
An adapter cable is available for customers who already own a Funkwerk hands-free car kit (including the Audio 2000, 3000, Audio
blue, Audio com, and Audio compact) and who would like to easily convert the EGO FLASH. The adapter cable connects the ISO cable,
already installed in the vehicle, of your previous Funkwerk handsfree system with the EGO FLASH and is available as an accessory.
NOTE! This simple converting option is only possible when installing the EGO FLASH without a stereo mute box. To install the EGO
FLASH with the stereo mute box, the stereo mute box’s ISO connecting cable should be used to connect to the vehicle.
6.1.5 Add-on speakers / Car audio telephone connection
The car’s loudspeakers are transferred to the system is by means of switch contacts. These are designed for a peak power handling
of 35 W (Sinus). Loudspeaker power handling exceeding 35 W leads to premature wear on the switching contacts. For higher outputs,
use the telephone connection of the car audio or a 5 W / 4-Ohm satellite speaker. This port is only designed for voice reproduction.
EGO FLASH
6.1.6 Car audio line-in input
A car audio with a line-in input option is required for music reproduction in stereo. As an alternative to line-in, the car audio may
have a mini-ISO port (block connector C), a 0.14 in jack socket or a RCA input socket. An appropriate adapter lead is required for
the connection between the EGO FLASH line-out and the line-in version of your audio system. If your car audio system has no
line-in option, you can employ the optionally available Stereo Mute Box for stereo reproduction in combination with your car’s front
speakers.
6.2
Verbauorte
INSTALLATION LOCATIONS! Unsuitable installation locations may become a source of injury in an accident (or emergency braking)
situation, or may inhibit the correct functioning of essential safety equipment!
6.2.1 Checking cable lengths
Before you’ve securely installed the components, check that the installation locations have been selected in such a way that the cable length
is sufficient to connect the individual components.
6.2.2 Selection of the installation location for the electronics box
The Bluetooth® antenna for the connection to the mobile phone is
installed in the electronics box. The antenna transmits directionally
towards the front. For this reason, during installation, ensure that the
antenna faces into the passenger cell (see Fig. 02). Vertical mounting is
ideal. Metallic screening between the front panel and the passenger cell, such as metal or metallised plastic panels, are unsuitable and may interfere with the Bluetooth® connection. Locations behind the dashboard or in a metal-lined glove compartment are
also unsuitable.

Installation
DAMAGE TO ESSENTIAL VEHICLE COMPONENTS! Essential vehicle components or wiring can be damaged when drilling mounting
holes or screwing in self-threading screws. Please make sure there is always sufficient space behind the screw holes and drilled
holes!
6.3.1 Mounting the electronics box
Installation consoles for a number of car models
are available from your dealer. These are designed
to contain all the system components, including
the electronics box. When it is not possible to use
an installation console, please proceed as follows:
Define the mounting points
Making sure that there is at least 2.8 in space for
the plug and socket connectors. Mark the positions
for the fixing screws.

self-adhesive strip on the microphone holder. The location selected must allow the microphone cable to reach the electronics box!
Position the microphone with the head facing towards the direction of speech.
Cleaning and degreasing the mounting location
The mounting location must be clean and free from grease and dirt/dust. Prior to installation, clean the area with a cleansing product
containing ethyl alcohol. Only use products that do not damage plastics or varnished wood finishes and are themselves free of oils or
grease. Unsuitable cleansers are, for example, lighter fluid, acetone, turpentine, trichloroethylene and similar products.
Attaching the microphone holder
Peel off the protective backing from the self-adhesive strip. Hold the microphone holder at a distance of several millimetres (about a
quarter of an inch) above the desired mounting location. Re-check the positioning. Re-positioning after mounting is no longer possible. Place the microphone holder on the mounting location and fix by applying short and light pressure.

Getting started
Take enough time to familiarize yourself with the use of the EGO FLASH in combination with your mobile phone. First of all, make a
few calls to determine the ideal volume and the best voice pickup direction before using the EGO FLASH in traffic.
When getting started, your car should be parked in a quiet place. It is also helpful if the person you will be calling can take time to
let you make some test calls.
7.4.1 About Bluetooth® technology
Bluetooth® technology is a wireless technology and, as such, it allows communication between individual devices without the need
for cables. Data and voice information can be transmitted simultaneously. It is unnecessary to have line-of-sight routing between
the devices. The transmission/reception range in the open is typically 33 feet. Interference from other electrical or electronic
equipment or obstacles may, however, reduce this range. The frequency band, in which Bluetooth® operates, is reserved virtually
worldwide. This, coupled with the fact that each Bluetooth® product is tested and approved for compatibility with other Bluetooth®
devices, ensures the highest possible levels of compatibility with devices from a wide range of manufacturers. The EGO FLASH
system supports the Bluetooth® hands-free profile. This means that it is fully compatible with all phones supporting the Bluetooth ®
hands-free profile. If you are uncertain, read the operating instructions for your mobile phone to see which profiles are supported.
A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) is a technology that enables the wireless transmission of stereo audio signals via Bluetooth® to a compatible receiving device. Please take a look at our homepage for information about compatible mobile phones.
7.4.2 On / Off function
The first time you use your EGO FLASH, you must start the EGO FLASH by turning the ignition key. You will see the starting logo
and the main display screen. If no connection to a mobile phone exists or no user is found, the functionality of the main menu is
restricted.
In order to connect to the EGO FLASH, you must select the “User management” menu item with
. “New user” is then selected. The EGO FLASH will then search for mobile phones within its range of reception. If it fails to find your mobile phone, you
may repeat the search, or read the section on “Troubleshooting”. When the name of your mobile phone is shown, select it with
the
key. After a connection is established with the EGO FLASH, the main menu is fully functional. Functionalities that are not
supported by the mobile phone are not selectable. If the ignition is switched off, the EGO FLASH shuts itself off. If the ignition is
switched off during a phone call, the call continues without interruption. The EGO FLASH will shut itself off only after the phone
call is ended.
7.4.3 Enter Bluetooth® PIN
After a few seconds you will be prompted to enter your Bluetooth® PIN. Enter the PIN shown on the EGO FLASH display onto your
mobile phone.

| 25
7.4.4 Hands-free mode
In some cases, coupling with your mobile phone in the hands-free mode does not work when using the method described above. If
you are sure that your mobile phone supports the Bluetooth® hands-free profile, proceed as follows: In the list of detected devices,
select “couple from phone”. Now you need to search for Bluetooth® devices using your mobile phone. The procedure for this can be
found in the operating instructions for your mobile phone. The mobile phone will then start searching for devices. Select the EGO
FLASH from the list of devices found by your mobile phone. During the coupling process, your mobile phone will prompt you to enter
a PIN or password. At this point, please enter the series of numbers shown on the display of the EGO FLASH. After a short time, the
mobile phone should inform you that coupling was successful. You may also cancel the coupling at any time by pressing the
key. If coupling fails, please read the section on “Troubleshooting”..
7.4.5 Automatic coupling
If the phone is already connected with the EGO FLASH, the EGO FLASH will try to couple to this phone. If the search is successful, a
connection is automatically established. A search is always performed for the most recently connected mobile phone.
If the search process was unsuccessful, it‘s possible that Bluetooth® or the mobile phone is not turned on, or that you were not the
last user. If you would like to select another user, activate user management and log this user in.
7.4.6 Call
If there is an existing Bluetooth® connection between the EGO FLASH and a mobile phone, you can use the hands-free function of the
EGO FLASH. If there is no connection, you cannot use the hands-free function. You must first establish a Bluetooth® connection. You
may dial a number with voice-activated dialing, through the menu or directly on the mobile phone.
Incoming call
If the mobile phone is available over the Bluetooth® connection, the call is signaled with the ringtone on your mobile phone. Otherwise a signaling tone is generated by the EGO FLASH.
If the caller has not blocked display of his phone number, and if the mobile phone supports this function, the display of the control
unit will show the caller’s number or, if a corresponding entry is found in the contacts list, the caller’s name. You can decide whether
