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.fwd-online.de.
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 EGO FLASH with the ISO cable already installed in your car with your Funkwerk hands-free car kit.
q
EGO FLASH
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.
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
q
Installation locations
RISK OF INJURY! 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

7.4
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-ofsight 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
EGO FLASH
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.
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
26
| 27
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.
