Instructions

  1. 1

    Plug the iPod end of the included iPod cable into the input on the back of the Harman Kardon Drive + Play's electronics enclosure labelled "iPod." Plug the opposite end of the cable into the input at the base of your iPod.

  2. 2

    Plug the power outlet end of the included 12-Volt accessory power cable into a power outlet (cigarette lighter) in the vehicle. Plug the opposite end into the input on the back of the enclosure labelled "Power."

  3. 3

    Plug the cable from the text display into the input on the back of the enclosure labelled "Display."

  4. 4

    Plug the cable from the control knob into the input on the back of the enclosure labelled "Control."

  5. 5

    Plug one end of an 1/8-inch audio cable into the input in the back of the enclosure labelled "Audio Out." Plug the opposite end of the cable into the 1/8-inch "Aux In" jack on the front of the vehicle's stereo. If no "Aux In" jack is available, the signal from the iPod can be heard by dialling in the FM frequency that the enclosure is transmitting with the vehicle's FM radio.
