INSTALLATION

The kit’s speakerphone unit comes with the phone holder attached, so you can easily mount the combination in one location. However, you can remove the phone holder from the speakerphone, so you can mount them in separate locations.

Mounting with the Phone Holder Attached

1.Choose a mounting location in your vehicle for the speakerphone/phone holder combination that is flat, easy to reach, and not in the way of passenger/driver movement or normal vehicle operation.

2.Based on the depth of the mounting surface, choose a set of four screws (and washers/nuts if the back of the surface is accessible) for securing the speakerphone’s mounting plate.

3.Using the mounting plate as a template, mark the screw locations on the mounting surface. Then at each location drill a hole slightly smaller than the selected screws. Attach the mounting plate using the supplied screws.

Caution: Take care not to drill into or damage objects behind the mounting surface.

4.Slide the speakerphone’s mounting bracket over the mounting plate to secure the speakerphone.

5.Clip the microphone to a location (such as the sun visor) where it will be in front of you as you speak, but where it does not block your vision or movement. To reduce background noise during phone conversations, try to choose a location that does not vibrate (while the car is running, for example).

Note: You can replace the clip assembly on the back of the microphone with the supplied flatback plate, then use a hook and loop fastener (not supplied) to attach the microphone to a cloth surface. Simply remove the screws and clip assembly from the back of the microphone, then attach theflat-backplate using those screws.

Mounting with the Phone Holder Removed

1.Slide the mounting bracket off the back of the speakerphone.

2.Remove the screws from the back of the speakerphone to separate the phone holder and the speakerphone.

3.The mounting plate has nuts in its recessed screw areas. Slide the mounting plate off the back of the phone holder, taking care not to lose the nuts.

4.Follow the same process described in Steps 1–3in “Mounting with the Phone Holder Attached” to mount both the phone holder and the speakerphone in separate locations, then follow Step 4 in that section to mount the microphone.

Making the Connections

Caution: To avoid damaging your car kit or phone, only use your car kit in vehicles that have a negative ground chassis and supply a maximum power of 14.4 volts.

1.Connect the microphone’s plug to the microphone jack on the bottom of the speakerphone.

2.Connect the antenna lead to the matching connector on the external antenna’s wire.

3.Slide a thin, flat object (such as your fingernail) under a corner of the protective cover on your phone’s power socket (on the base of the phone) and pull up on the cover to remove it. Then connect the speakerphone’s coil cord connector to the socket.

4.With the phone’s antenna facing up and the display facing out, slide your phone into the holder until it clicks.

5.Connect the power cable’s barrel plug to the DC jack on the speakerphone.

6.Make sure the tip of the power cable’s lighter socket connector is tightly connected, then insert the connector into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket. Your phone beeps and turns on its charging display to indicate that its battery is charging (see the section on charging the battery in your phone’s Owner’s Manual).

Caution: Unplug the power cord from your vehicle’s cigarettelighter socket when you turn off the ignition. This prevents vehicle battery drain if you leave the phone on when you turn off the ignition.

OPERATION

With your phone properly mounted and connected to the speakerphone, you make, answer, and end calls on your phone as usual (for example, by dialing the number and pressing SEND to place the call, and by pressingEND to end the call).

During a call, simply talk in your normal speaking voice. The microphone picks up your voice, and you hear the caller on the other end of the line through the speakerphone.

To remove the phone from the holder at any time (even during a call) and operate the phone by hand, firmly squeeze then release the buttons on the side of the holder so the phone pops up slightly, then pick it up. The speakerphone automatically turns off and you can use the phone as usual.

Notes:

For maximum efficiency, we recommend you turn on your phone’s Auto Answer feature, so it automatically answers an incoming call after the first ring.

Please refer to the telephone’s Owner’s Manual for complete instructions on the telephone’s operation, care and maintenance, and important safety information.

Disconnecting Your Phone from the Speakerphone

Follow these steps to disconnect the speakerphone and remove your phone from the holder (so you can take the phone with you when you leave the vehicle, for example).

1.Hold down the tabs on the side of the coil cord connector and pull the connector away from the phone to unplug it. Your phone’s charging display turns off to indicate that battery charging has stopped.

2.To release the phone from the holder, firmly squeeze then release the buttons on the side of the holder so the phone pops up slightly.

3.Lift the phone out of the holder.

CARE AND

MAINTENANCE

Your RadioShack Handsfree Speakerphone Car Kit is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your speakerphone so you can enjoy it for years.

Keep the speakerphone away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

Keep the speakerphone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.

Use and store the speakerphone only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, and distort or melt plastic parts.

Handle the speakerphone gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the speakerphone to work improperly.

Wipe the speakerphone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the speakerphone.

Modifying or tampering with the speakerphone’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your speakerphone’s warranty. If your speakerphone is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

Checking/Replacing the

Fuse

The speakerphone’s power cable contains a 2-ampfuse. If your speakerphone stops working properly, follow these steps to check/replace the fuse.

1.Disconnect the lighter socket connector from the vehicle’s lighter socket, then unscrew and remove the tip on the end of the connector.

2.Pull out and check the fuse. If it is blown (or if you are unsure), replace it with a new 2-amp,125V fuse (available at your local RadioShack store).

Caution: Use only a fuse of the same type and rating as the one supplied with the connector.

3.Securely screw the tip back on the connector.
