Bluetooth Ready: The optional Dual BTM60 Bluetooth module (070BTM60,
sold separately) allows you to answer and place calls from your
Bluetooth-enabled wireless phone through the XML8110. The BTM60 connects to the
head unit through a single 8-pin plug to the back of the head unit. The 3-meter
cable is routed along the A-pillar of the vehicle to the visor-mounted module.
It works with Bluetooth Version 2.0 (v1.2 compliant), and communicates with most
Bluetooth-enabled phones (up to 8 Bluetooth devices can be paired; only one
working at a time). The BTM60 supports the following profiles:
- Hands-Free Calling (HFP): You can make, receive or end
phone calls using the module's "Talk" button or from the head unit. You can
dial out using the head unit's front panel numbered buttons or from a
listing of the last five phone calls that were received, dialed or missed.
Incoming phone numbers will scroll across the head unit's display so you
know who is calling and an audible ring tone will be heard through your
vehicle's speakers. Using the BTM60's built-in noise and echo-canceling
microphone allows you to carry on a mobile conversation through the
vehicle's speakers without picking up your cell-phone.
- Advanced Audio Distribution (A2DP): The BTM60 also
supports A2DP wireless streaming music audio from your Bluetooth-enabled
device, allowing you to listen to audio wireless from your Bluetooth
compatible mobile phone or portable MP3 player.
- Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP): You can control
your wireless streaming music audio from the front panel of the head unit
using AVRCP. The BTM60's wireless connection allows you to control certain
playback functions (such as play, pause, skip, etc.) of your wireless
streaming music audio player using controls from the head unit.
Note: All BTM60 HFP functions work with the iPhone
(using iPhone FW version 1.0.2) with the exception of caller ID. When a call
is being received, the head unit will display "Incoming Call". The iPhone
does not support A2DP or AVRCP. Not all Bluetooth enabled mobile phones will
be compatible with this unit. Please visit dualav.com for a complete list of
compatible Bluetooth enabled phones.
Expansion Module Slot: The unit's proprietary expansion module slot (hidden behind fold-down
front-panel) provides an easy way to upgrade the XML8110 with new features.
Check dualav.com for future upgrade information.
Wireless Remote Control: The XML8110 comes supplied with a 21-button
IR wireless remote control which provides complete control of the Dual AM/FM
head unit with iPod dock.
Steering Wheel Input Interface: The 3.5mm steering wheel interface
input located on the back of the head unit allows connection to the optional PAC
SWI-PS interface module (127SWIPS,
sold separately). The SWI-PS interface allows you to
retain the use of your steering wheel and/or rear seat radio controls when
replacing the factory head unit in select vehicles. The SWI-PS is compatible
with over 95% of the vehicles made from 1986 to the present. Compatible vehicles
include many Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge,
Ford, GMC, Honda, Hummer, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus,
