Preparation

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

For safety and the best performance, hold the phone upright with a phone holder, available at RadioShack.

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

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

Replacement microphones are available at RadioShack.

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

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

Changing Modes

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

Disconnecting and reconnecting the cord does not change the mode.

."%#76+10".

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.

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

Your RadioShack Handsfree Speakerphone Kit is easy to use. The kit 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, connect it to your phone, and plug in the microphone. It even automatically recharges the phone’s battery.

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. ±

2.Plug the phone connector on the end of the coiled cord into the slot on the base of your phone, with TOP facing the same

direction as the keypad. The connector only fits one way; do not force it. ±

3.Plug the microphone into the MIC jack.

4.Attach the supplied microphone to your car’s visor using the supplied visor clip or

to your clothing using the supplied lapel 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 MIC jack, then point the microphone toward you.

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. ±

5.Turn the phone on if it has not turned on automatically. The speakerphone beeps and the POWER indicator lights. .

You can use the speakerphone in either handsfree or privacy mode. To change modes, briefly insert your finger in the modeswitching finger groove on the back of the speaker. When your finger breaks the beam, the indicator changes color.

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. The POWER indicator turns red. Pick up the phone and use it like any other handset.

Incoming Calls

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

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

See the phone owner’s manual for proper setting instructions.

Lockup

Be sure to unplug the speakerphone before starting the vehicle, or you may cause it to lockup.

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 speakerphone cannot improve the phone’s performance. Variations in voice quality are louder when heard with the speaker than when in privacy mode because they are amplified. If you experience a badly distorted call, check that the phone has a good signal level. 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.
