DESCRIPTIONS OF MP3

Notes on MP3

An MP3 file stores audio data compressed using MPEG1, the audio layer-3file-codingscheme. We call files that have the “.mp3” extension “MP3 files.”

The unit can read MP3 files written in the format compliant with ISO 9660. However it does not support the MP3 data copied using a packet writing utility.

The unit cannot read an MP3 file that has a file extension other than “.mp3.”

If you play a non-MP3file that has the “.mp3” extension, you may hear some static.

In this manual, we refer to what are called “MP3 file” and “folder” in PC terminology as “track” and “album,” respectively.

The unit can play up to 512 tracks per disc.

The unit may not play tracks in the order of track numbers.

It may take 2 minutes or more to scan a CD-RorCD-RW,depending on the complexity of the folder tree.

The unit plays only the audio tracks if a disc contains both audio tracks and MP3 files.

Notes on indications in the display

Up to 32 characters are displayed for the name of an album or a track. Characters other than uppercase letters (“A” to “Z”), lowercase letters (“a” to “z”), numerals (“0” to “9”), and underscore (“_”) may not be displayed.

When playing MP3 files, the elapsed playing time displayed may not be correct.

To display up to 30 characters for a track name or an artist’s name, ID3TAG version 1.x is required. Characters other than uppercase letters (“A” to “Z”), lowercase letters(“a” to “z”), numerals (“0” to “9”), and underscore (“_”) may not be displayed.

Notes on creating your own CD-Rs

or CD-RWscontaining MP3 files

To enjoy high sound quality, we recommend storing MP3 files with a sampling frequency of

44.1 kHz and a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps.

Do NOT store more than 512 MP3 files per disc.

Note that the unit may not play tracks in the order that you wrote them to the disc.

The unit can read up to 5 sessions with a multi session disc.

For ISO 9660-compliantformat, the maximum allowable depth of nested folders is 8, including the root directory (folder).

Tips on identifying the order of the

tracks

Include a twoor three-digitnumber at the beginning of each album or track name. (e.g. “01,” “02,” … or “001,” “002,” …)

If you use the numbers such as “1,” “2,” “3,” … ”9,” “10,” “11,” …, the unit unexpectedly plays in the order of “1,” “10,” “11,” … “2,” “20,” “21,” … “3,” “30,” “31,” and so on.

It is recommended that you use only the parent folders (do not create child folders under a folder).

Writing software capable of writing MP3 files in numerical and alphabetical order is required if you want them in order. For details on using the software, refer to the operating instructions supplied with your software.

STEERING-WHEEL-MOUNTED REMOTE CONTROL UNIT

Precautions

When the infrared receptor on the main unit is exposed to direct sunlight, it may not respond to signals from the remote control unit.

While driving, keep your eyes on the road as you operate the remote control unit. NEVER operate the remote control unit while turning.

Do NOT install the remote control unit where it may hinder the function of any safety device, such as an air bag.

Be sure to install the remote control unit securely on the steering wheel. Unstable installation may interfere with operation of the vehicle.

Do NOT install the remote control unit where it will obstruct your view of the instrument panel.

Be sure to install the remote control unit on the side of the steering wheel closer to the main unit. If you install the remote control unit on the opposite side from the main unit, the infrared signal may not reach the main unit’s receptor, disabling remote operation.

There may be cases in which the infrared signal does not reach the infrared receptor on the main unit, depending on the installation location.

Do NOT install the remote control unit on the outer rim of the steering wheel. Doing so may hinder steering and cause a traffic accident. Be sure to install the remote control unit on the inner rim of the steering wheel.
