• The iPod battery charges when plugged into the UCI connector (if supported by the specific iPod device)

Connecting The iPod Device

Use the optional connection cable to connect an iPod to the vehicle’s UCI connector (which is located in the glove box or center console on some vehicles. This location may vary with vehicle). Once the iPod is connected and synchronized to the vehicle system (this may take a few seconds to connect), the vehicle brand logo appears on the iPod display, and it starts charging and is ready for use by pressing radio switches as described below.

Controlling The iPod Using Radio Buttons

To get into the UCI (iPod ) mode and access a connected iPod , press the “AUX” button on the radio faceplate.

Once in the UCI (iPod ) mode, the iPod audio track (if available from iPod ) will start playing over the vehicle audio system.

Play Mode

When switched to UCI mode, the iPod automatically starts Play mode. In Play mode, use the following buttons on the radio faceplate to control the iPod and display data:

Tune/Scroll Knob

The Tune/Scroll knob functions similar to the scroll wheel on the iPod mobile digital device.

Turning it clockwise (forward) by one click while playing a track skips to the next track.

Turning it counterclockwise (backward) by one click during the first two seconds of the track will jump to the previous track in the list and turning this button at any other time in the track will jump to the beginning of the current track.

RW (Rewind) Button

Press and hold the RW button to move backward in the current track. Holding the RW button long enough will jump back to the beginning of the current track.

Pressing and releasing the RW button will go back five seconds of the current track.

FF (Fast Forward) Button

Press and hold the FF button to move forward in the current track.

Pressing and releasing the FF button will go forward five seconds of the current track.

SEEK Buttons

Use the SEEK buttons to move to the previous or the next track.

If the left (down) button is pressed during the first two seconds of the current track, it will go back to the previous track in the list; pressing this button at any other time in the current track it will go back to the beginning of the track.

If the right (up) button is pressed during Play mode, it will go to the next track in the list.

INFO Button

Press the INFO button while a track is playing to see the information (Track Title, Artist, Album, etc.) for that track. Each press of the INFO button will go to the next screen of data for that track. Once all screens have been viewed, the last press of the INFO button will go back to the Play mode screen on the radio.


Press the REPEAT button to repeat the current playing track.

SCAN Button

Pressing the SCAN button will play the first five seconds of each track in the current list and then forward to the next song. To stop the SCAN mode and start playing the desired track, press the SCAN button again.

During the SCAN mode, pressing the SEEK button to the left or right will go to the previous or next tracks.

RND (Random) Button (RES/REL Radios Only)

Pressing the RND button will switch between the shuffle on and shuffle off modes of the iPod . If the RND icon is showing on the radio display then the Shuffle mode is on.

List or Browse Mode

During Play mode, pressing any of the buttons described below, will bring up List mode. List mode enables scrolling through the list of menus and tracks on the iPod .

Tune/Scroll Knob

In the List mode, the Tune/Scroll knob functions in a similar manner as the scroll wheel on the iPod .

Turning the Tune/Scroll knob clockwise (forward) and counterclockwise (backward) scrolls through lists, displaying the track detail on the radio display. Once the track to be played is highlighted on the radio display, press the Tune/Scroll knob to select and start playing the track. By turning the Tune/Scroll knob fast, the device will jump through the list faster. During fast scroll, a slight delay in updating the information on the radio display may be noticed.

During all List modes, the iPod will display all lists in “wrap-around” mode. So if the track to be selected is at the bottom of the list, just turn the Tune/Scroll knob backward (counterclockwise) to get to the track faster.

Radio Preset Buttons

In the List mode, the radio preset buttons are used as shortcuts to the following lists on the iPod device.

• 1 – Playlists.

• 2 – Artists.

• 3 – Albums.

• 4 – Genres.

• 5 – Audiobooks.

• 6 – Podcasts.

After pressing a preset button, the list selected is on the top line and the first item in that list on the second line.

To exit the List mode without selecting a track, press the same preset button again to go back to Play mode.
