OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.

 

 

Your RadioShack Handsfree Speakerphone Kit is easy to use. It turns your cellular or PCS phone into a speakerphone in your car or truck. Just plug it into any standard (negative ground) 12-voltpower source, such as acigarette-lightersocket, connect it to your phone, plug in the microphone, and it is ready to use. It even automatically recharges the phone’s battery.

Warning: Always wear your seat belt. Never place a phone where it could damage or interfere with the operation of any passive safety device (airbags or seat belts).

Notes:

For safety and the best performance, hold your phone upright with a dash-mountedphone holder, available at your local RadioShack store.

To avoid lockup of the speakerphone system, always disconnect the speakerphone kit from power before starting your vehicle.

IMPORTANT

VOLUME ADJUSTMENT: Please note that for optimal use, the earpiece volume must be set to maximum. It is important that the volume is adjusted in two places. First set the phone’s volume and then set the volume on the speakerphone, using the side buttons.

KEYPAD TONES: When placing a call, you will not always hear thetouch-tonesthrough the speakerphone. This is a normal condition and not a defect.

PREPARATION

1.Insert the speakerphone’s plug into your vehicle’s 12-voltpower source orcigarette-lightersocket. The green POWER indicator lights. Turn the speaker grill toward you to allow at least 2 inches of clearance so you can use the mode switch on the back.

Notes:

You might have to turn the ignition key to Accessory or ON to power the cigarettelighter socket.

If your vehicle’s cigarette-lightersocket is difficult to reach, outlet adapters are available at your local RadioShack store.

2.Plug the phone connector, located on the end of the coiled cord, into the slot on the base of the phone. TOP should face the same direction as the keypad. The connector will only fit one way; do not force it.

3.Plug the microphone into the MIC jack located on the side of the speakerphone.

Note: Replacement microphones (RSU 12294229) are available through your local RadioShack store.

4.You can attach the microphone to either your car’s visor or your clothing.

To use the supplied visor clip to attach the microphone to the visor, tuck the wire into the space between the windshield glass and trim, or under the trim, whichever is easier. Run the wire down to the dash and around the dash edge, being careful not to put the wire where it can be pinched by the door. Plug the microphone’s plug into the side of the speakerphone. Make sure the microphone is pointed toward you.

To use the small supplied lapel clip to attach the microphone to your clothing, attach the clip about 6 inches below your chin. Leave a comfortable length of cord between the microphone and the speaker. Wrap up the excess cord so it does not interfere with vehicle operation.

Note: To avoid feedback, position the microphone so it is not directly in line with the speaker. You might need to turn the speaker slightly.

5.Turn the phone on if it has not turned on automatically. The speakerphone beeps to indicate it is working, and the POWER indicator lights.

Note: If you are unable to make a call in handsfree mode, contact your phone store to update the phone’s software.

Changing Modes

You can use the speakerphone in either handsfree or privacy mode. To change modes, briefly insert your finger in the mode-switchingfinger groove on the back of the speaker. The switch is an electronic optical device. When your finger breaks the beam the indicator changes color.

Note: Disconnecting and reconnecting the cord does not change the mode.

In handsfree mode, the phone’s internal microphone and speaker are disabled and the phone operates like a speakerphone. The POWER indicator lights steadily green. You can talk and listen without holding the phone.

In privacy mode, the phone operates normally and the internal microphone and speaker are active. The POWER indicator turns red. Pick up the phone and use it like any other handset.

Note: Anytime the indicator is lit, power is on and the phone’s battery is charging.

Battery Discharge

If your cigarette-lightersocket or power outlet remains on when the vehicle is turned off, and you plan to leave your vehicle for more than a week, unplug the speakerphone to prevent excessive battery discharge and difficulty starting your vehicle.

HANDSFREE OPERATION

Outgoing Calls

With the speakerphone set to handsfree, dial a number as you would normally, and speak in a normal voice. When you complete your call, press END.

Incoming Calls

When an incoming call rings on the speakerphone, press TALK and begin speaking. Press END when you are finished.

Note: It may take a moment for the speakerphone to alternate between you and the person you are talking to on the phone. You may need to pause for a moment to hear.

Adjusting the Volume

For optimal use, adjust the volume on your phone’s menu to the maximum setting. See the phone’s owner’s manual for proper setting instructions. The volume control buttons on the phone should also be set to maximum.

To adjust the speakerphone volume to a comfortable level, move the volume control toward the POWER indicator (louder), or away from the POWER indicator (softer).

Lockup

Be sure to unplug the speakerphone before starting the vehicle, or you may cause it to lock up. If you cannot change the mode for either the phone or the speakerphone, the circuitry has locked up.

A Note About Voice Quality

Wireless phones use radio waves to accommodate many users on a radio network. Radio communications do not always provide the same voice quality and reliability as your land-linephone.

When using your wireless phone, you may experience dropped calls, crosstalk, echo, speech distortion, or other voice quality degradation. These distortions are generally caused by the wireless network.

Your Handsfree Speakerphone Kit cannot improve the phone’s performance. Variations in voice quality that you experience in the privacy mode will be heard with the speaker and may be louder because they are being amplified.

If you are experiencing a badly distorted call, check to see that the phone has a good signal level, since low signal levels are typically associated with poor voice quality. If your signal level is good and you are still experiencing poor voice quality, hang up and redial the number to get a different channel.
