Connecting iPodŽ

WARNING

Do not connect/disconnect or operate the USB device while driving. Doing so can be a distraction. If distracted you could lose control of your vehicle and cause an accident or serious injury.

CAUTION

● Do not force the USB device into the USB port. Inserting the USB device tilted or up-side-down into the port may damage the port. Make sure that the USB device is connected correctly into the USB port.

● Do not grab the USB port cover (if so equipped) when pulling the USB device out of the port. This could damage the port and the cover.

● Do not leave the USB cable in a place where it can be pulled unintentionally.

Pulling the cable may damage the port.

Refer to your device manufacturer’s owner information regarding the proper use and care of the device.

To connect an iPodŽ to the vehicle so that the iPodŽ can be controlled with the audio system controls and display screen, use the USB jack located on the center console below the heater and air conditioner controls. Connect the iPodŽ- specific end of the cable to the iPodŽ and the USB end of the cable to the USB jack on the vehicle. If your iPodŽ supports charging via a USB connection, its battery will be charged while connected to the vehicle with the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position.

While connected to the vehicle, the iPodŽ can only be operated by the vehicle audio controls.

To disconnect the iPodŽ from the vehicle, remove the USB end of the cable from the USB jack on the vehicle, then remove the cable from the iPodŽ.
