Precautions

IMPORTANT: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CONTAINED IN THIS MANUAL BEFORE USING THE CLARION AUTOPC SYSTEM.

SAFETY WARNING! When you see this symbol !, it means, for your safety, the vehicle must be stopped to set or use the Auto PC. Pull over in a safe and legal manner before attempting to manually access a function of the system.

Read and follow instructions

Before using your Windows® CE for the Auto PC system, read and follow all instructions and safety information provided in this Owner’s Manual. Not following precautions found in this Owner’s Manual can lead to an accident or other serious consequences.

Keep Owner’s Manual in vehicle

When kept in the vehicle, the Owner’s Manual will be a ready reference for you and other users unfamiliar with the

ii

Windows CE for the Auto PC system. Please make certain that before using the system for the first time, all persons have access to the Owner’s Manual and read its instructions and safety information carefully.

Warning

Operating certain parts of this system while driving can distract your attention away from the road, and possibly cause an accident or other serious consequences. Do not change system settings or enter data non-verbally (using your hands) while driving. Stop the vehicle in a safe and legal manner before attempting these operations. This is important since while setting up or changing some functions you might be required to distract your attention away from the road and remove your hands from the wheel.

Voice command control

Many of the functions of the Windows CE for the Auto PC system can be accomplished using only voice commands.

Prolonged views of screen

Do not access any function requiring a prolonged view of the screen while you are driving. Pull over in a safe and legal manner before attempting to access a function of the system requiring prolonged attention. Even occasional short scans to the screen may be hazardous if your attention has been diverted away from your driving task at a critical time.

Volume setting

Do not raise the volume excessively. Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear outside traffic and emergency signals while driving. Driving while unable to hear these sounds could cause an accident.

Clarion AutoPC Owner’s Manual

Precautions continued

Care in handling

The Clarion AutoPC system is a sensitive electronic device. As with all electronic devices, care should be taken to avoid contact with extreme heat, cold, or humidity.

Operating at very cold temperatures

At extremely cold temperatures, the display screen speed may be reduced, and the display may dim. Also, the colors on the display may vary depending on the thermal condition of the unit itself or the temperature in a vehicle. These phenomena are the characteristics of the liquid crystal display and are not malfunctions.

Handling Detachable Control Panel

Also, special care should be taken when handling and storing the Detachable Control Panel (DCP). Note: The terms “control panel” and

“DCP” are used interchangeably in this document to refer to the same thing.

Fully close DCP holder after DCP removal

It is dangerous to keep the DCP holder at an angle once the DCP is removed. Be sure that the DCP holder is fully closed (in the vertical position).

Operating switches and knobs

The slanted control panel may not maintain its adjusted angle if a button is pushed too hard.

Cleaning display cover

Turn power off. Clean the display cover with a lightly damp soft cloth. Do not pour or spray liquid on the display as this will damage the unit.

Precautions continued

CompactFlashTM 1 (CF) Card

Insertion Slot Cover

The CF Card insertion slot is equipped with a slot cover in order to prevent the exposure to debris and to protect terminals. Be sure to cover the CF Card insertion slot with the cover when the slot is not being used.

Inserting the CF Card

The Clarion AutoPC System will accept CF Cards from most manufacturers. Warning: CF Card can be inserted one way only. Make sure to insert the CF Card with the manufacturer’s label and arrow FACING RIGHT of the unit as shown to the right.

Make sure label and arrow are facing right

Precautions continued

Opening the DCP

Grip the control panel as shown in the illustration which follows, and pull it outward and downward in one continuous motion.

Closing the DCP

Place your index finger immediately below the Start button, pressing inward and upward as shown below.

Proper clearance to eject CD

Open the control panel to the lowest position to allow the CD to be ejected without causing damage.

Before pressing the eject button, look to see that the CD will clear the top of the control panel as illustrated below.

Correct clearance

Note: If the CD is not manually removed within approximately 10 seconds after the eject button is pressed, the CD will be automatically loaded back into the CD Player.

CD ROM Installation

The vehicle should be parked at a level location when a higher version of OS or CD ROM software is installed. Note: If a vehicle starts up or cranks up, or if the ACC (accessory) is turned on or off during the installation, voltage fluctuation harmful to this unit may occur. This could result in an abnormal installation or a malfunction in the unit.

Power On at time of initial operation

It may take up to 15 seconds to see an actual display on the unit when it is initially powered up. This is not a malfunction.

Chapter 2 –

 

Using Speech Commands

 

Auto PC can understand words and short phrases spoken as commands,

 

called “speech commands.” Using voice commands while driving allows

 

you to operate the system without distracting your attention away from the

 

road or removing your hands from the wheel.

 

Auto PC doesn’t listen for speech commands all of the time. If you want to

 

give commands to your Auto PC, you must first wake it up. Also, only a

 

few commands, called “global commands” are available all of the time.

 

Many speech commands are specific to a program, and so are called

 

“program commands.”

Speaking

Auto PC recognizes command words more effectively when you speak

commands

them decisively, as in a command, and may ignore words when you are

decisively

talking normally, as in a conversation.

Clarion AutoPC Owner’s Manual

15

Guidelines for speech commands

If you don’t know what to say

The Auto PC has been optimized to recognize adult speakers. Use the following guidelines when giving commands to Auto PC:

1.Remember to wake up Auto PC.

2.Say each command clearly and distinctly, but don’t shout.

3.Wait for the “heard” tone before saying another command.

4.Wait for Auto PC to stop talking, or press the Push-to-Talk (PTT) key to interrupt.

5.Decrease background noise.

6.You may need to train Auto PC to understand how you say one or more speech commands. For more information, see the section “To train or add a custom command word” in the chapter, “Customizing Your Auto PC.”

If you don’t know what commands you can say, just say “What can I say?” and Auto PC will tell you which speech commands it is listening for. You can also say “Help” if you want to know what you can do with speech commands. The following sections contain more information that will help you take advantage of the speech capabilities of Auto PC.

Clarion AutoPC Owner’s Manual

16

How Auto PC HELP illustrates voice commands and response tones

Getting help with speech commands

While in the Start menu you can press HELP to get assistance with speech commands. You will see voice commands and how Auto PC responds with musical tones. Auto PC tells you it is “listening” to you with a specific tone, and that it has “heard” your voice command with another different tone. You see both the commands and tones represented on

the Auto PC HELP display. For example, speaking “Auto PC” along with other voice commands will appear as follows on the display:

Auto PC Radio FM

Note that () represents the start of a voice command and () signifies the end of a voice command. Other conventions used in Auto PC HELP are explained in this diagram:

Voice commands

Auto PC Radio FM

“Awake tone”

“Heard tone”

Clarion AutoPC Owner’s Manual

17

Tones that help you give speech commands

If, after saying “Auto PC” you do not hear the “listening tone,” consult the Tips and Troubleshooting chapter of this manual.

Auto PC has three tones that help you give speech commands:

1.When you wake up Auto PC, you’ll hear the awake tone, and see a green speech command timeout bar on the bottom of the screen.

2.When Auto PC hears you, you’ll hear a short “heard tone.”

3.When Auto PC stops “listening,” you hear the sleep tone and the listening timeout bar (green color) disappears.

For examples of how to use speech commands, see the Getting Ready chapter.

Clarion AutoPC Owner’s Manual

18

Two ways Auto PC gives you information

Screen-based icons show what you can do

Chapter 3 - Getting Ready

Before you start using your Clarion AutoPC system, take a few minutes to become familiar with the unit.

Your Auto PC gives you information in two ways:

1.By displaying information on the screen.

2.Through voice synthesis, Auto PC reads status information or other requested information.

You can control Auto PC using the keys on the DCP or you can use speech commands, which are single words or short phrases that provide shortcuts to commonly used functions.

When you say “Auto PC” or use PTT, Auto PC “listens” for speech commands and a green bar appears across the bottom of the display. The green bar gradually disappears as the listening timeout expires.

CAUTION! ONLY LOOK AT THE AUTO PC WHEN IT IS SAFE AND ONLY FOR AS LONG AS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. Do not look at the green bar longer than is safe.

The blue bar appears across the bottom of the display only when Auto PC is “talking.” While “talking,” Auto PC does not accept voice commands.

Hold PTT to make Auto PC listen

NOTE: Neither the green bar nor the blue bar is displayed if the listening timeout is set to Always (see the Customizing your Auto PC chapter).

If you press and hold the PTT key, Auto PC continues listening until you release the key.

Wake up Auto PC and go to a program

Using Speech to go to a program

You can go to some programs by saying the program name. The program names available as default global commands are: Radio, CD Player, Directions, Address Book, and Messages. For information on changing which program names are available, see “Changing Speech Command Options” in the chapter, “Customizing Auto PC.” To go to a program that isn’t selected as a global command, use the keys as described in the next section.

Global speech commands let you get to programs directly

Using Global Speech Commands

Global speech commands are available all the time, in any program. Global commands include speech commands that take you right to many of the programs on your Auto PC, plus commands that are useful in any program, such as “Read” and “What time is it?”

To get started using global commands, the following sections show you some tasks you can do using global commands.

Have Auto PC tell you what speech commands you can say

Have Auto PC tell you the time

Change the volume

To find out which commands you can say

You can change which global commands are available in Setup. For more information, see “Changing Speech Command Options” in the chapter, “Customizing Your Auto PC.”

Program commands are specific to a program

Using Program Speech Commands

Unlike global speech commands, program commands are specific to a particular program – you can only use them when you are in that program.

The following sections show you some examples of what you can accomplish using program commands.

Go to a radio station preset

Listen to a CD and change tracks

Review directions while driving

Dial a telephone number from Address Book

Listen to an e-mail message

NOTE: Additional (optional) hardware may be required to accomplish some of these program commands. For example, to make Auto PC dial your cell phone, you need the cell phone cradle connected to the Universal Serial Bus (USB).

Requirements to use radio presets

To go to a preset radio station

Requires you to have:

Set a radio station preset. For more information, see “Setting your own Preset stations” in the chapters, “Using the Radio, and Audio Adjustments.”

Chapter 4 – Using the Radio

The fastest way to learn the Clarion AutoPC system is to try out the functions you will frequently use. Once you have learned how to set up and use commands for your radio, everything else is similar and therefore easy.

The Radio program in Auto PC gives you access to most common radio functions using speech commands. Using speech commands, you can:

1.Go between AM and FM.

2.Seek forward or backward for the next station.

3.Read the current station frequency and preset label (if any).

4.Go to 20 preset stations, ten each for AM and FM. For each preset, you can assign a number key and a text label, as well as record the station name. The preset number key or text label are displayed when the preset station is shown.

Finding or tuning a station

Preset stations and station names

“Train” Auto PC to recognize commands

Setting your own Preset stations

Ways to scan or select stations

You can establish up to 10 Preset stations for AM and up to 10 Preset stations for FM.

You can also use your voice to “train” Auto PC to recognize custom voice commands for your Preset stations. If, for example, you have a favorite ROCK and CLASSICAL station, you could give them station names such as ROCK and CLASSICAL.

Once you have selected either AM or FM you will also see the radio beacon icon and the frequency to which the radio is currently set. The frequency used in this next example is FM 94.7 (or substitute any working station in your area) and you will identify this station as Preset 1.

Protecting Address Book information

If you have phone numbers and addresses in Auto PC that you don’t have backed up on another mobile device, you may want to back up the information in case it is lost or corrupted. You also may want to password protect your data to prevent unauthorized access.

For more information, see "Add or Change a Password" in the chapter "Customizing Your Auto PC,” and the chapter "Backup/Restore."

Chapter 8 - Using Directions

Use the Auto PC’s driving directions to free yourself from struggling with maps, and keep your attention focused on the road.

Directions Feature The Directions feature is intended to provide turn by turn instructions to get you to a desired destination. Please make certain all persons using this system carefully read and follow instructions and safety information fully.

Distraction Hazard Directions is one of the features of the Windows CE for the Auto PC system which can require manual (non-verbal) set-up. Attempting to perform such set-up or insert data while driving can seriously distract your attention and could cause an accident. Stop the vehicle in a safe and legal manner before attempting these operations.

Emergency Services Do not rely on the navigation system to route you to emergency services. Ask local authorities or a “911” operator for these locations. Not all emergency services such as police, fire stations, hospitals and clinics are likely to be contained in the navigation map’s database.

Potential Map

Inaccuracy

With a map data CD, Auto PC can guide you to your destination.

With Auto PC Directions, you enter a starting point and a destination. Directions calculates a route for you to take, and gives you turn-by-turn directions on screen and reads the directions to you.

Maps used by this system may be inaccurate because of changes in roads, traffic controls or driving conditions. Always use good judgment and common sense when following the suggested routes.

What you’ll need

Map data CDs are provided by Clarion Partners

Where to get map data for your region

How to receive GPS satellite signals

You will need a start point and a destination point to give to the Directions program in order for it to calculate a route and supply you with specific directions. Start and destination points come from a several sources. Two important sources are map data CDs and your Address Book.

The Directions program supports map data CDs offered by Clarion Partners, allowing you to choose CDs appropriate to your area. Addresses contained in your Address Book may be used as start points and destinations points. As described in the Address Book Chapter, you can transfer addresses from a Windows CE-based mobile device (such as a Handheld or Palm-size PC) through the infrared port to the Address Book.

To use Auto PC’s Directions, you need a compact disc that contains map data for the region in which you are traveling. For a list of Clarion partners offering map CDs supported by Auto PC, go to the web site www.autopc.com and click on Partners.

To receive GPS satellite signals you will need the optional GPS Receiver. Contact your Clarion dealer for further information.
