User Guide iceLink FM Modulator

The FM Modulator transforms iPods audio signal to a standard Stereo FM radio signal and by this makes iPods program available through the cars FM receiver. This solution is needed if no compatible CD-Changer port or Line-In available in the receiver. FM Modulator breaks into the antenna cabling of the car, and hard switches the antenna source between the Car-antenna and the FM Modulator. When FM Modulator is in function no radio reception is possible and consequently the Traffic Announcement (TA) feature is blocked. The FM modulator can work on 3 preset frequencies. Strong radio stations can cause interference (distortion or clicks on high pitch tones), so please set the switch to a channel, where there is no radio station and strong local stations nearby. If reception by any means would not be appropriate, choose another FM channel. The activation of the FM Modulator is done automatically if an iPod is connected. (This feature requires an iPod with bottom Dock Connector). After turn on the FM Modulator, select (and store) the preset frequency on the radio. If you want to listen to the radio again, just disconnect the iPod and select a station on the radio.
