high fidelity. To achieve optimal
performance, please observe the
following instructions when
attaching your portable music device to the audio system.
If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, refer toAuxiliary
input jacksection in theAudio featureschapter of yourNavigation

1. Begin with the vehicle parked and the radio turned off.
2. Ensure that the battery in your portable music player is new or fully
charged and that the device is turned off.
3. Attach one end of the audio extension cable to the headphone output
of your player and the other end of the audio extension cable to the AIJ
in your vehicle.
