2010 Range Rover – PORTABLE AUDIO INTERFACE (iPod)

This one is a little long, but I think some will find it interesting:

PORTABLE AUDIO INTERFACE
Caution: We recommend that you replace the rubber cover when a portable device is not connected to prevent damage to the interface. The cover is not waterproof.

Located in the centre console cubby box is an interface to allow the connection of a variety of
portable audio devices, including iPods, to the vehicle’s audio system.

Note: Most devices connected to the iPod and USB ports will be charged, but devices that are fully discharged will not play.

If an iPod or mass storage device is connected to the interface, you can use the touch-screen to operate and search the device. Many of the controls are similar to those available for CD play. The devices that you can connect to the portable audio interface include:
– USB mass storage devices, for example memory stick.
– iPod.
Note: The portable audio interface supports all iPod generations available at time of writing, including the 3rd & 4th generation, iPod Photo, iPod nano and the 5th generation models.
Note: The audio system will play MP3, WMA, WAV and AAC files.
Note: The system will support devices with a storage capacity up to 256 GB (approximately 65 000 tracks).

Connecting an iPod
On the audio Home screen, select Audio/TV, then Portable audio, then iPod.

Note: You can also press the MODE button and then select Portable audio device.

A dedicated iPod lead is supplied with the Portable audio interface. Plug in your iPod with the usual care necessary to protect the connector pins from damage. Play will start automatically from the point at which the iPod was last played.

Connecting a USB device
On the audio Home screen, select Audio/TV, then Portable audio, then USB.

Note: You can also press the MODE button and then select Portable audio device.


Insert the USB device into the socket. Whenever the device is connected, the first track in the first available folder is played automatically.

Note: Some MP3 players have their own file system that is not supported by this system. To use your MP3 player, you must set it to USB Removable Device or Mass Storage Device mode (see manufacturer’s information for further details). Only music that has been added to the device in this mode can be played via the vehicle’s portable audio system.
Note: We recommend that only music files areloaded on the USB device. This will speed up the automatic indexing of files.

Connecting more than one device

You can connect an iPod and a USB device simultaneously to the portable audio interface and switch between them using the touch-screen. Select iPod, USB or AUX, to switch between modes.

Note: Selecting AUX will select an input connected to the auxiliary input socket.

The device docked first will remain the active device until you choose to change. If, after changing to the newly-docked device, you change back to the first device, play will resume at the point you left it (USB and iPod only).

Note: You cannot use a USB hub to connectmore than one USB device to the audio unit.
Note: Options such as Repeat and Mix relate to the device currently playing, they will not apply to any subsequent device.

OPERATING A PORTABLE DEVICE

If you are using a USB mass storage device or iPod connected to the portable audio interface,
you can control playback using the touch-screen controls.

Note: If you are using an audio device connected via the auxiliary input socket, then
playback must be controlled from the device itself.

Autoplay
Whenever a USB device is docked, play will start automatically at the first track in the first
available folder. For an iPod, play will always resume from the current track, whether previously docked or not. Pause Select II to pause playback, select the button again to resume playback.

Displaying track information
Many tracks will be saved with additional information contained in an id3 tag. You can choose to display some or all of this information on the screen. The default display provides track title information only. Briefly touch the –> button repeatedly to toggle through the information, including track title, artist, album and genre. Touch and hold (two seconds) the –> button to display the Portable audio text pop-up screen providing all the id3 tag information available for the track. If no information is available, the screen will display the text No entry. Touch the pop-up screen to close it.

SEARCHING A PORTABLE DEVICE

USB folders
The Folders option enables you to explore the folder structure on the USB device.

Note: Only compatible file types will be displayed on the touch-screen.
Note: We recommend that only compatible files are loaded onto the device. This will speed
up the automatic indexing of your files.
Note: This feature is most useful when the files and folders on the USB device have been
organised logically.

Select Folders to display all folders on the device. Select a folder name to display a list of tracks in that folder. Use the arrow icons (if displayed) to scroll through the list. Select a track to start playback of that track. Play will continue as normal through the remainder of the tracks in that folder. Select the open folder icon at the top of a menu to move back to the level of that folder.

iPod folders
Select Browse to display all search methods available on the iPod. Search methods include, Playlist, Artist, Album, Genre, Composer, Podcast, Audio Book and Song.

Select a search method from the list to display a list of items found.
If you select Artist, a list of artists will be displayed. If you select an album title, a list of tracks is
displayed. Select a track to start playback. Select the open folder icon at the top of a menu to move back to the level of that folder. Portable device settings In Portable audio mode, select Settings, then
select Options.

Page jump
Only five items are displayed on screen from a list of many items. If you select a single arrow
scroll button, then four items will scroll past. The Page jump setting helps you to navigate a very long list of items by setting the number of items scrolled through when a double-arrow page scroll button is selected. For example, if you select 10 under Page jump, then 10 × 4 (40) items will scroll past each time you select a page scroll button.
