Important notes

What you really have to read

Before you operate your new car radio, please read the following information carefully.

Traffic safety

As the driver of a motor vehicle, it is your responsibility to pay attention to the traffic situation at all times. Never use your car radio in a way that could distract you.

Please keep in mind that you travel a distance of 14 m per second at a speed of only 50 km/h.

Do not adjust your radio in difficult driving conditions that demand your full attention. Always make sure that you are still able to hear any warning signals coming from outside of the vehicle, such as police or fire engine sirens, so that you can react accordingly.

Installation/connection

In order to ensure that the set functions properly it is necessary that the positive power supply line is connected to the ignition and the permanent +12 V connector of the car radio.

If you would like to install your new car radio by yourself or add other audio components to the existing ones, then please read carefully the enclosed instructions on installation and connection.

31

Do not connect the loudspeaker outputs to ground!

Use only the accessory and replacement parts approved by Blaupunkt.

Optical indication of theft protection

When the car is stationary, you can let the KeyCard tongue flash in order to indicate that the set is equipped with security coding. Use DSC to select one of two settings: LED ON or LED OFF.

For more information, please read through chapter “DSC programming - LED ON/OFF”.

KeyCard

The car radio can only be operated using either KeyCard 1 or 2. Their codes are stored in the unit.

Turn on the set and introduce the KeyCard completely. The car radio is now ready for operation. When inserting a wrong KeyCard, the display will show “----”.

After approximately 10 seconds, “CARD ERR” will appear in the display. In this case do not make any further adjustments until you have the corresponding KeyCard available.

Never try to pull out the KeyCard by force.

Selecting the operating mode

With the SRC (source) button you can select between the following modes:

radio,

tape,

CD changer (option), or

operation of another audio component connected.

To select one of the operating modes, it is of course necessary that the corresponding system is available, i.e. the add-oncomponent must be adequately connected and the sound carrier (cassette, disc, changer magazine) inserted.

To switch over to the next operating mode available,

press the SRC button.

Radio operation with ADA and RDS

ADA

This car radio features ADA (AutoDirectionalAntenna).

The 2-foldADA system developed by Blaupunkt incorporates two tuners (Codem IV concept) and sets new standards in reception quality, which is clearly superior to other systems.

With ADA, the set simultaneously analyses and processes the signals furnished by two antennas. Compared to traditional concepts, this leads to a considerable improvement in the radio reception quality.

Also, multipath interference effects (produced by hills or buildings) are minimised to an extent unparalleled so far.

ADA on/off - antenna test

You can switch off ADA and test the antennas. For more information, read through chapter “DSC programming, ADA”.

RDS (RadioDataSystem)

The Radio Data System offers you more convenience when listening to FM.

More and more radio stations have begun to broadcast additional RDS information a- longside their programs.

As soon as a radio program has been identified, the station name including a regional

identifier, if applicable, will appear in the display, for example “NDR1 NDS” (local radio program of Lower Saxony, Germany). With RDS, the preset buttons become program buttons. Now you know exactly which program you have tuned into and in future you can select this program directly.

But RDS even offers you more advantages:

AF - Alternative Frequency

The AF function makes sure that the radio will always tune into the optimum frequency for the RDS station you are listening to.

This function is activated if “AF” lights up in the display.

In order to switch AF on/off:

Press the AF button briefly.

During seek tuning for the frequency offering the best reception of the selected program, the radio will be muted briefly.

When “SEARCH” appears in the display after the radio has been switched on or one of the stored frequencies retrieved, then the radio is automatically searching for an alternative frequency.

“SEARCH” goes out as soon as the system has found an alternative frequency or after the frequency band has been run through completely.
