Charge your iPhone or iPod
Your TuneCast Auto will charge your iPhone or iPod while it is connected to a power outlet
and receiving power. If your iPhone or iPod is not charging, make sure your TuneCast Auto is
correctly connected to the power outlet and that your iPhone or iPod is securely connected to
your TuneCast Auto. The indicator light on the cigarette lighter adapter should be lit.
Note: Some vehicles do not provide power to the power outlet unless the vehicle is in ignition
mode or the engine is running.
Optimize the sound quality of your TuneCast Auto
A variety of car radio and antenna configurations are available and you may optimize the sound
quality in your car based on the location of your TuneCast Auto (for example, placing the
TuneCast Auto on the center console may yield better performance than other locations within
your vehicle).
