Connecting an external device

WARNING:
Make sure the external device is securely mounted within the vehicle, and that trailing connections do not obstruct any of the driving controls.

External devices may be connected using the auxiliary input socket and the USB port. See Auxiliary input (AUX IN) socket. See USB port.

Connection

Plug in the device, and if necessary secure it to prevent movement within the vehicle.

Connecting an iPod

For optimum convenience and audio quality, we recommend that you purchase a dedicated single connection lead available from your dealer.

Alternatively, it is possible to connect your iPod using the standard iPod USB cable and a separate 3.5mm audio jack lead. If using this method preset the iPod volume to maximum and turn off any equalizer settings before making the connections: • Connect the headphone output of the iPod to the AUX IN socket.

• Connect the USB cable from the iPod to the vehicle USB socket.
