For MP3 players with mini-USB connectors, use the Male
USB Type A to mini-USB cable (included).
Note: To disconnect, unplug it from the MP3 player.
4 Plug the 3.5 mm audio cable (included) into both the
mobile FM transmitter and your MP3 player.
5 Start your MP3 player. Your mobile FM transmitter turns on
when an audio signal is detected.
6 Select the frequency from Step 2 above using the up and
down arrows on the front of your mobile FM transmitter.
Tip: The mobile FM transmitter works best when the MP3
player volume is set between 50% to 75% of maximum. After
you have tuned to the frequency and begun transmitting,
adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
Tip: Your MP3 player does not automatically turn off. Be sure
to turn it off before exiting your car.
To use the mobile FM transmitter presets:
1 Find the FM frequency you want.
2 Firmly press and hold one of the three preset buttons on
the front of the mobile FM transmitter until the display
lights blink (usually 2-3 seconds). This stores the station in
memory.
A small indicator bar appears on the display.
3 Repeat steps 1 and 2 to store two additional stations with
the two remaining buttons.
Tip: When the mobile FM transmitter is turned off and
restarted, it tunes to the last frequency used.
