Getting Started

Step 1 - Tune your FM stereo

Locate a frequency that has only static – no talk or music. If you can’t find a frequency with only static, tune to one that has the most amount of static and the least amount of talk or music.

Step 2 – Connect InCharge FM to your iPod

Make sure the USB end of the cable is plugged tightly into the car charger base. Then plug the car charger into your car’s 12V accessory/cigarette lighter outlet. A blue power indicator will illuminate on the base indicating a proper connection. Next, attach the dock connector to your iPhone or iPod.

Step 3 – Tune InCharge FM

Once you connect InCharge FM to your iPod, the unit will activate and display a digital FM frequency. Use the buttons on the face of the unit to tune to the same frequency as the one on your FM stereo. The bottom button tunes down the frequency and the top button tunes up the frequency. Once the frequency on InCharge FM matches the one on your car stereo, press play on your iPhone or iPod and the unit will begin transmitting your music through your car stereo. Please note that while driving your selected frequency may fade or experience interference. If the signal becomes poor or the sound quality drops you should tune to a different frequency on your FM radio and repeat this step.

Step 4 – Programming and Using Preset Stations

Your InCharge FM offers two preset options for the FM frequencies that you use most often. To set, tune InCharge FM to the frequency you wish to select. Hold down either the one dot button or two dot button on the side of the unit until the displayed frequency begins to blink and then release. Repeat for your second preset option. When finished, simply press the button for the preset you would like to use.

Additional Features

Play/Pause/Next Track Button

InCharge FM includes this convenient button to play/pause the iPod or advance to the next track without having to access the touch screen. Press this button once to play/pause your music or press twice to advance to the next song.

Stereo and Mono Modes

InCharge FM allows you to choose between stereo (LX) and mono (DX) modes to ensure the clearest signal. Mono produces a stronger signal and is perfect for using in markets with a crowded FM dial or while listening to audio books. To switch between modes, simply slide the switch on the side of the unit.

Trouble Shooting Tips


Check InCharge Connections

Connect the USB end of the cable into the base and press the base firmly into the 12V accessory outlet.

Check iPod connection

Connect the dock connector end of the cable to the iPod.


Check FM station

Tune your radio to a frequency that has the most amount of static and the least amount of talking or music. Tune the display on InCharge to the same frequency.

Check radio volume

Adjust the volume on the stereo, not on the iPod.
