6 Installation instructions
6.1 Required configuration
Before installation of your EGO LOOK, 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 LOOK 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 modelspecific mounting that may be purchased from a specialist dealer.
6.1.2 Mobile phone
Operation of the EGO LOOK 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 mute switch)
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 LOOK into a previously 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 LOOK. The adapter cable connects the
ISO cable, already installed in the vehicle, of your previous Funkwerk handsfree system with the EGO LOOK and is available as
an accessory.

NOTE! This simple converting option is only possible when installing the EGO LOOK without a stereo mute box. To install the
EGO LOOK 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
EGO LOOK
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 radio line-in
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 LOOK 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 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 components.
6.2.2 Selection of site for installing the electronics box
The Bluetooth® antenna for connection to the mobile phone and the
antenna for radio communication with the radio control unit are contained
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 metallined glove compartment are also unsuitable.
A covering in plastic, fabric or wood presents no problems whatsoever.

6.3 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.
Mounting the electronics box
For mounting the electronics box, use four self-threading screws and appropriate washers. We recommend size “ST 2,9x25 DIN
7981”self-threading screws. These are ideal for the fixing of the electronics box. Pre-drill the holes with a 0.08 in drill.
6.3.2 Mounting the microphone
Define the mounting location
The microphone holder has a self-adhesive strip on the back. The mounting location should have the same form and area as the
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.
EGO LOOK

Rotate the lower portion of the controller clockwise and the upper portion counterclockwise to open the controller. Lift the
upper portion. Insert the supplied battery with the positive terminal downward into the lower portion until it latches. Now place
the upper portion on the bottom so that the contacts from the bottom of the controller touch the contact surface in the upper
portion. Position the latching tabs in the notches and rotate opposite the opening direction.
6.3.4 Mounting the radio controller
Define the mounting location
The control console is mounted on a smooth service by means of the self-adhesive pad provided. Make sure that the user can
easily reach the controller.
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 cleansing 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.
Gluing the radio controller in position
Remove the protective foil from the adhesive pad on the underside of the controller. Hold the radio controller a few millimeters
over the desired installation position. Check the position again – when doing so, keep the position of the red and green buttons
in mind. It is not possible to correct the controller after it has been glued in position. Place the radio controller on the adhesive
location and briefly apply moderate pressure.
6.3.5 Mounting the display
Determining the mounting location
The display is mounted to a smooth surface using the supplied adhesive pad. The optimal position for this is facing directly at
the driver. Keep the effect of lights and sunlight in mind in order to minimize possible reflections.
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 cleansing products that do not damage plastics or varnished wood finishes and are

7.5 Speller
The controller controls the EGO LOOK using the rotary knob. In addition, the rotary knob is used for confirmation. The
button is used to go one step back or to exit the menu. The Speller allows you to compose telephone numbers from individual
digits or names from individual letters. It is available for various functions of the EGO LOOK, for example, for dialing a telephone
number or for creating a contact list entry. Operating the Speller is explained in the following:
→ Entering numbers
By rotating the rotary knob, navigate to a digit and accept this digit by pressing the rotary knob. You can delete the last digit of the number by selecting the
symbol. Once the number has been completely entered, you can confirm it by selecting the
symbol. To cancel the process at any time, press the
button.
→ Entering names or text
Similar to the method used for entering numbers, you can enter names or even entire texts using the Speller. Navigate to a character by rotating the rotary knob and accept it by pressing the rotary knob. You can delete the last character by selecting the
symbol. Once the name has been completely entered, you can save it by selecting the
symbol. To cancel the process at any time, press the
button. You can switch between upper-case letters, lower-case letters, numbers and special characters using the symbols described in Chapter 7.2.3. You select these symbols using the rotary knob.
7.6 Getting started
Take enough time to familiarize yourself with the use of the EGO LOOK 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 LOOK 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.
7.6.1 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 LOOK 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.
EGO LOOK
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.
7.6.2 Activating the controller
You can read how to activate the radio controller with the EGO LOOK in Chapter 7.3 „Getting started with the EGO LOOK controller“ in „Activating the controller with the EGO LOOK“.
7.6.3 On / Off function
The first time you use your EGO LOOK, you need to start it by switching on the ignition. You will see the start logo followed by
the main screen. If the EGO LOOK is not connected to a mobile telephone, or if no user is found, the functionality of the main
menu is limited. To establish a connection to the EGO LOOK, you need to select the menu item „Manage users“ using the rotary
knob. There, you select „New user.“ The EGO LOOK then searches for mobile telephones in its reception range. If your mobile
telephone is not found, you can start a search again or read the „Troubleshooting“ section. If the name of your mobile telephone
is displayed, select it by pressing the rotary knob. Once connected with the EGO LOOK, complete functionality is available in the
main menu. Capabilities not supported by the mobile telephone cannot be selected. Once the ignition is switched off, the EGO
LOOK powers down. If the ignition is switched off during a telephone call, this telephone call is maintained. The EGO LOOK does
not power down until the telephone call has been completed.
7.6.4 Entering the Bluetooth® PIN
After a few seconds you will be prompted to enter your Bluetooth® PIN. Enter the PIN shown on the EGO LOOK display onto your
mobile phone.
7.6.5 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 LOOK 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 LOOK.
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”.
7.6.6 Automatic coupling
If the phone is already connected with the EGO LOOK, the EGO LOOK 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.
30
| 31
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.
7.6.7 Calling
If there is a Bluetooth® link between the EGO LOOK and a mobile telephone, you can use the hands-free capability of your EGO
LOOK. You can dial a number using voice dialing, the menu, or directly on the mobile telephone.
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 LOOK.
If the caller has not blocked his number and if the mobile telephone supports this function, the number, or the name of the
caller if a corresponding entry is found in the contact list, is displayed. You can decide to accept the call (
-button) or reject
it (
-button). If you accept the call, you can regulate the volume using the rotary knob. The setting is stored. You may end
the call by pressing the
button.
Call setup
Call setup from the EGO LOOK is only possible if there is an existing Bluetooth® connection between the EGO LOOK and the
mobile phone. You may set up a call with voice-activated dialing or through the menu.
To activate voice dialing, press the rotary knob for longer than a half a second. With the command „Dial number,“ you can
announce the telephone number to be dialed or with the „Dial <Name>“ command you can dial an entry in the contact list
directly. You can find more information on this in the „Voice control“ chapter. (Take paragraph into account)
The following methods may be used to initiate a call from the menu:
→ by selecting from the contacts list and the mobile phone
→ by direct outward dialing of a number with the number speller
→ dialing from the call list on your mobile phone
→ through the call-back feature for received SMS messages.
And lastly, you may also dial a number directly on your mobile phone.
Starting the voice dialing of the telephone

Direction of rotation
→ Clockwise
If this option is activated, rotating the knob clockwise signifies advancing in the menu or the contact list.
→ Counterclockwise
If this option is activated, rotating the knob counterclockwise signifies advancing in the menu or the contact list.
Delay time
You may determine how long the EGO LOOK should remain active after switching off the ignition. The delay time may be set in
steps between 0 and 30 minutes.
Reset
This resets all settings back to the standard factory settings. In doing so, all user settings including the contacts list are lost.
Software update
The software for your EGO LOOK can be updated via Bluetooth®. For more details, please see the section “Software update”.
Info
Provides information about the various software and hardware versions of your EGO LOOK. Use this information when you
contact our service department with questions and problems.
Language
The EGO LOOK supports multiple display languages. You can change the display language within this menu item.
Voice control
→ Activate
Carrying out this item launches voice control. Control is performed with specific commands. For moreinformation see the “Voice control” chapter.
→ Language
If your EGO LOOK features multiple languages, you may select the language here.
EGO LOOK
Audio
→ Microphone sensitivity
Under certain circumstances, it may be necessary to adjust the microphone sensitivity. For example, if the microphone is located too far from or too close to the driver. The EGO LOOK has 10 possible sensitivity settings available. The sensitivities are shown to the right of the display as bars. There are a total of five bars where one bar indicates two steps. The sensitivity can be adjusted using the rotary knob. Do not set the microphone to be too sensitive because this may result in over-modulati on and poor audio quality for the other party.
→ Line-In
In this menu item, you may activate the line in and vary the input volume of the audio device connected to the line in of the
electronics box.

Note: Please note that only the connection of an audio device with line level is allowed. If the electronics box’s line in is
overamplified through an excessively high signal from the line out of the audio device, the volume must be reduced on the audio
device.
→ Telephone announcements
If the connected telephone has navigation functions, here you can set whether the navigation announcements are to be output over the EGO system. The radio is muted during this output. Key tones are also output from the telephone if the telephone
generates these. The status is saved for every user and returned to the previously set status when the system is restarted.
Possible statuses: ON/OFF
→ Mute delay
Here, you can set the waiting time between the activation of the mute line and the voice recognition. This is logical, as car
radios require various amounts of time to recognize a mute signal and the switchover of the audio channels in the radio. The
time should be set so that the first announcement of the EGO „Main menu“ can be completely heard.
Possible statuses: 0.5 sec. / 1.0 sec. / 1.5 sec. / 2.0 sec. / 2.5 sec. / 3.0 sec.
→ Reset
Resets all audio settings to the default values.
Power down
The current Bluetooth® connection is severed under this item and the EGO LOOK is switched off. The EGO LOOK may be switched
back on by pressing a single key.

7.7.3 iPodTM Player
Symbol: The iPodTM player is activated via the main menu. The activation can only be performed if the accessory device „EGO iDapter“
was also purchased. The iPodTM player can also be activated if a mobile phone is not paired with the EGO LOOK. To be able to
play back music from the iPodTM an iPodTM must be connected to the EGO iDapter cable.
Connection/pairing
The connection with the iPodTM is automatically performed after the connection to the EGO iDapter cable. If the iPodTM icon in the
main menu remains grayed out, the connection has failed and then you must reconnect the connector of the EGO iDapter cable
to the iPodTM. After establishing a connection, music can immediately be played back from the iPodTM. If the music is stopped,
you can search in the track lists under Options.
Charging the iPodTM
The iPodTM is charged via the EGO iDapter.
Playing
The following functions are available for playing and are shown in the display:
→ Play
→ Pause
→ Stop
→ Forward (track-by-track in the current playlist)
→ Backward (track-by-track in the current playlist)
→ Volume control
Return to the symbols using the rotary knob. For a description of these keys, please see the “Symbols” chapter.
7.7.4 Music player
Symbol:
The music player is activated through the main menu. The music player may also be activated without a mobile phone being
EGO LOOK
couple to the EGO LOOK. In order to play back music, the EGO LOOK must be coupled to an A2DP-capable device (such as a
mobile phone with A2DP, an iPod™ or an MP3-Player with A2DP adapter).
Connection / coupling
Under the “Option” menu item, a “New device” may be coupled, or an already coupled device may be connected. A total of 10
devices may be coupled, whereas only one device may be active. If a “New device” is selected, a Bluetooth® device search is
performed. The desired device can be selected from there.
If the music device does not support coupling from other devices, it is also possible to couple the EGO LOOK from the music
device via the “Couple from device” menu item. In both cases, a four-digit PIN code is displayed by the EGO LOOK, which must
be entered into the music device. Is the PIN is incorrect, the menu jumps back to device selection, and you must repeat the
process. If an iPod™ or MP3 player with an A2DP adapter is used, these devices couple automatically with the EGO LOOK. For
this, the “Couple from device” menu item must be selected during the search for devices. After coupling, all playback functions
are available to the user.
Playback
The following functions are available for playback and are shown in the display:
→ Play
→ Pause
→ Stop
→ Forwards (by title)
→ Reverse (by title)
→ Volume setting (playback volume adjustable in 10 steps)
Return to the symbols using the rotary knob. For a description of these keys, please see the “Symbols” chapter
7.7.5 Contacts list
Symbol:
The mobile phone’s contacts list can be read via the “Contacts list” menu item. In addition to dialing numbers from the contact
information with the
key, entries can be found more quickly with the search function. You may also download the contacts
list from the mobile phone under the “Option” menu item, or enter the number via direct outward dialing.
40
| 41
Read
To read numbers from the contacts list, please select the
menu item. After opening the contacts list, all entries contained in
the list are displayed. Select the number or name you want to call and press the
key. The numbers stored under this name
are then displayed. By pressing the
key once again, the number is dialed.
Search
If searching for a particular name becomes difficult due to a large number of entries, the search function may be used. With this
function, entries may be searched for a specific name or specific first letters. The desired name or first letters can be entered
by using the speller. By pressing the
key, the contacts list will be searched for this name or letter.
Direct dial
Direct dialing is possible in addition to voice-activated dialing. As described under the “Speller” and “Call setup” items, a
number can be entered here by hand using the speller. The call is set up after confirming the number with the
key.
Synchronizing
In the „Synchronize“ item, you can download the contact lists of the mobile telephone or from the SIM card into the EGO LOOK
memory. Both contact lists can be synchronized, too. Once you have selected a contact list, you confirm this with the rotary
knob. Now a loading bar appears in the display. This bar indicates the instantaneous progress of the synchronization process.
If the download has been completed successfully, the entries are now found in the EGO LOOK contact list. In addition, you can
cancel the download manually using the
button. If you decide to cancel, you must reconfirm this by answering the Yes/No
question. If you answer „Yes“, the synchronized entries are deleted and the program returns to the „Contact list“ menu. If you
answer „No“, synchronization continues.
7.7.6 Call history
Symbol:
In the “Call history” menu item, you may view “Numbers dialed”, “Missed calls”, and “Calls received”. After selecting the “Call
list” menu item, a list of numbers dialed is downloaded from the mobile phone. “Missed calls” and “Calls received” may also be
viewed by selecting the corresponding upper list entries. Some mobile phones do not support access to the call list; in this case,
a call list is maintained within the EGO LOOK.
EGO LOOK
7.7.7 Messages
Symbol:
The EGO LOOK supports the sending and receiving of text messages. The menu is structured in same form users are familiar
with from their mobile phones. Messages received can be viewed under the “Incoming SMS” item. The sender of the message
can be called back by phone using the “Call-back” function. You may also reply to the sender with a text message (SMS).
Various templates are available to you for answering a text message. Select one of these and confirm with the „Send“ button.
The message is sent.
If you do not wish to answer an SMS but rather to send a new SMS, select the „New message“ button. Here you can once again
select a template and then send this. In addition, you can enter the telephone number by hand or select a contact from the
phonebook.
You will find the „Read aloud“ item under the SMS text. You have the option here of having the SMS read aloud. You can also
activate this function by selecting one of the SMSs shown in the list and holding down the rotary knob. If the SMS function via
Bluetooth is not supported by the mobile phone, then the Messages menu item cannot be selected in the EGO LOOK.
7.8 Voice control
The dialogue-guided voice control of the EGO LOOK allows you to select a name or number via voice input. While numerical
selection allows you to directly announce a number, you also have the option to select the name directly from the contacts list.
Switching the Language
Depending on the country version of your EGO LOOK, the voice recognition system supports up to three languages. One of these
may be activated. To change the active recognized language, select the item „Setting → Voice control → Language“ in the
menu. A list of available languages is now displayed. Select the desired language and confirm by pressing the rotary knob. The
EGO LOOK will now save your settings and begin updating the recognized language. The status of this process is displayed for
you using a progress bar.
Activation and sequence
Voice control is only possible if you are not making a telephone call. By pressing the rotary knob for longer than a half a second
while not engaged in a telephone call, the status text „Main menu“ is heard, and the message „Please speak“ appears in the
display.
You may cancel each voice dialogue at almost any time with another prolonged pressing of the
key. If the EGO LOOK is
waiting for a voice command, you may end the dialogue by saying “abort”.
If there is no Bluetooth® phone connected to the EGO LOOK, voice-activated dialing cannot be activated.
