Open the inMotion iM510 docking bay by pushing the button located on the speaker grille. Connect the Sansa player to the inMotion iM510 by plugging the docking bay connector into the Sansa player port.

The docking adapters can be connected to the docking bay by inserting the small tab on the back of the adapter into the fitted space on the docking bay. The Sansa player should fit snugly inside the adapter.

Note: Alternate audio sources — such as nondockable MP3 players, CD players, portable DVD players, and laptops — can also be connected to the inMotion iM510. For more information, see the “Connecting to alternate audio source” section.
