Overview: The Scosche Wireless
RF Remote Car Kit includes a 7-button wireless remote, a steering wheel mount, a
plug-in iPod module, and an A/V patch cable. The RF remote control can operate
your iPod or iPod nano from a distance of up to 150 feet.
Steering Wheel Mount: The
remote control can be mounted into the supplied steering wheel cradle. The
cradle can be attached to the steering wheel with the included hook & loop
Compatibility: The supplied RF
receiver module fits into any iPod, including the nano, with a standard dock
connector. The bottom of the module has a female dock connector to allow you to
plug in other cables for charging or connecting to your computer.
Note: The iPod shuffle is not compatible since it does not have a dock
connector. This car kit is compatible with the Apple iPhone when the iPhone
is in iPod mode for music audio playback only. This car kit does not operate
any phone functions of the iPhone.
RF Remote: The included
wireless remote control operates on radio frequencies, instead of infrared,
giving you an extended operating range of up to 150 feet. RF remote commands do
not require line of sight with the receiver, and can travel through walls. The remote can be
hand-held, or used in the supplied steering wheel mount. The remote
has 7 buttons with the following functions:
- Track Back/Track Forward:
Press and release to move to the beginning of the current track (back) or
the beginning of the next track (forward). Press and hold to rewind or fast
forward through the track.
- Play List Select: Used
with the function button, you can move forward or backward through the list
of available playlists.
- Pause/Play/Sleep: Press
and release to toggle between Pause and Play. Press and Hold to put iPod
into sleep mode.
- Volume Up/Down: Press and
hold to reduce or increase the volume
- Shuffle Play: Press to
randomly play songs on the iPod
Power Requirements: The RF
receiver, which draws power from the iPod, uses an advanced power down mode to
minimize battery usage. After 20 minutes of sensing no music playing or no
remote commands, the unit will go into an advanced battery save mode. The
receiver will automatically re-power itself when it detects music playing or a
remote command of 0.6 seconds or more.
A/V Cable: The included A/V
cable allows you to connect your iPod to the auxiliary input of your car stereo.
In addition to the stereo RCA audio plugs, the cable also includes a composite
