Dension Car Dock for iPhone
The Dension Car Dock for iPhone provides windscreen and dash mounting, charging, car audio
connectivity and handsfree functionality to your iPhone.
The Dension Car Dock for iPhone can be used both with and without the Car Dock Mode app.
However, please note that some of the features (like setup of FM transmitter frequency) require an
installed Car Dock Mode app on your iPhone.
Installation
Mounting on windscreen or dashboard
To see, how you can mount the Car Dock onto your dashboard or windscreen, please check the
Quick Start Guide in the package of the Car Dock.
Cable connections
In the package of the Car Dock you can find a cigar lighter charging adapter, a power cable and an
audio cable.
If your Dension Car Dock for iPhone includes an FM transmitter, and you wish to use FM audio
connection to your car, you will need only the cigar lighter charging adapter and the power cable.
Please connect them as shown on the figure:
If you wish to use AUX audio connection to your car, then you will need the audio cable too. Please
connect it as shown on the figure:
If your car has an AUX input, it is suggested to use the AUX audio connection even if your Car
Dock includes an FM transmitter, as it provides better audio quality than the FM connection.
Dension Gateway connection
If you use a Dension Gateway in your car, it is suggested to connect the Car Dock to the Dension
Gateway via the 9-pin connector. In this case you can use all functions of both the Dension
Gateway and the Car Dock.
If you do not have the 'Car Dock to Gateway'; cable, you can order it at your Dension dealer, or in
the Dension Webstore (http://shop.dension.com).
iPhone docking
Docking of iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS
iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS fits the Car Dock immediately, no rubber pads are needed.
Docking of iPhone 4
In the package of the Car Dock you can find three self-adhesive rubber pads. Before connecting an
iPhone 4, please install these as shown on the picture below:
Bluetooth connection
To activate the handsfree function, the iPhone needs to be paired to the Car Dock for iPhone via
Bluetooth. The Bluetooth pairing can be made on the following way:
a.
b.
c.
d.
Enter the Bluetooth Settings menu of your iPhone
Switch on the Bluetooth in the Bluetooth Settings menu of your iPhone
Dock your iPhone in the Car Dock
'Car Dock for iPhone' will appear in the device list of the Bluetooth Settings menu of your
iPhone
e. Connect to the 'Car Dock for iPhone' device
f. Enter the Bluetooth PIN code of the Car Dock for iPhone: 8888
After the pairing is done, the Car Dock will automatically connect to your iPhone via Bluetooth,
each time you dock it. If you remove the iPhone from the Car Dock, the Bluetooth will be
automatically disconnected.
Charging
The Car Dock can work without having 12V power (cigar lighter, or Dension Gateway) connected.
However, in this case you risk draining your iPhone battery quickly and the quality of the built-in
FM transmitter may be lower. Therefore it is suggested to connect to 12V power supply, or Dension
Gateway whenever you use the Car Dock.
Audio connection
If the iPhone is docked in the Car Dock, its audio output (including music, phone and app audio) is
transmitted to the car. There are 3 different methods to transmit the audio to the car:
FM transmitter
If you have a Car Dock with a built-in FM transmitter, you can activate it by docking the iPhone in
the Car Dock, launching the Car Dock Mode app, entering the Settings menu and switching FM on.
(See section 2.14.2)
To have the best FM transmission quality:
a. First search for a free frequency on your car radio, which does not have any radio program.
b. Set the same frequency in the Settings menu of the Car Dock Mode app
Please note that free frequencies are location dependent. If you move, it may be necessary to change
the frequency settings to keep the good transmission quality.
AUX
If your car has an AUX input, it is suggested to use it instead of the FM, as it provides better audio
quality.
Select the AUX source on your car radio to listen to your iPhone.
Dension Gateway
If the Car Dock is connected to a Dension Gateway, select the iPod source on the Gateway to get
the iPhone audio.
Handsfree
After the iPhone is paired to the Car Dock (see section 4.1.5), they will be automatically connected
via Bluetooth, each time you dock the iPhone. (For the automatic connection, the Bluetooth of the
iPhone needs to be switched on before docking.)
If you remove the iPhone from the Car Dock, the Bluetooth will be automatically disconnected.
During phonecalls you will hear the incoming audio via the car speakers. For outgoing audio, the
built-in microphone of the Car Dock is used.
Note: To hear the incoming audio from your car speakers, the iPhone needs to be the active audio
source of your radio. In case of AUX connection select the AUX source on your car radio. In case
of using FM transmitter, select the the same FM frequency on your car radio, which was set in the
Car Dock Mode app.
