Hands-free system (for cellular phone)

The hands-free system is a function that allows you to use your cellu- lar phone without touching it.

This system supports Bluetooth® cellular phones. Bluetooth® is a wireless data system that allows a cellular phone to wirelessly connect to the hands-free system and outgoing/incoming calls.

The illustrations of the hands-free system screens shown here may slightly vary depending on the type of the system.

- When using the hands-free system
l The audio system is muted when making a call.
l If both parties speak at the same time, it may be difficult to hear.
l If the incoming call volume is overly loud, an echo may be heard.
l Try to face toward the microphone as much as possible when speaking.
l In the following circumstances, it may be difficult to hear the other party: • When driving on unpaved roads
• When driving at high speeds
• If a window is open
• If the air conditioning is blowing directly on the microphone
• If the air conditioning is set to high
• There is an effect from the network of the cellular phone

- Conditions under which the system will not operate
l If using a cellular phone that does not support Bluetooth®
l If the cellular phone is turned off
l If you are outside service range
l If the cellular phone is not connected
l If the cellular phone’s battery is low
l When the cellular phone is not connected, “No connect” is displayed.

- When using the touch screen

- Bluetooth® antenna
The antenna is built into the instrument panel. If the cellular phone is behind the seat or in the console box, or touching or covered by metal objects, con- nection status may deteriorate.

- Battery charge/Signal status
l This display may not correspond exactly with the cellular phone itself.
l When the cellular phone is out of the service area or in a place inaccessi- ble by radio waves, “No Service” is displayed.

- When using Bluetooth® audio and hands-free system at the same time
The following problems may occur.

l The Bluetooth® connection may be cut.
l Noise may be heard on the Bluetooth® audio playback.

- Certification

IC: 775E-K041
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules and Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undes- ired operation of this device.

Le présent appareil est conforme aux la partie 15 des règles de la FCC et CNR d’Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence. L’exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes: (1) l’appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et (2) l’utilisateur de l’appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d’en compromettre le fonctionnement.

For vehicles sold in Canada
This device complies with RSS-310 of Industry Canada. Operation is sub- ject to the condition that this device does not cause harmful interference.

Cet appareil est conforme au CNR-310 d’Industrie Canada. Son exploitation est autorisée sous réserve que l’appareil ne cause pas de brouillage préjudi- ciable.


This equipment complies with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for uncontrolled environment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF) Exposure rules. This equipment has very low levels of RF energy that it deemed to comply without maximum permissive exposure evaluation (MPE). But it is desirable that it should be installed and operated keeping the radiator at least 7.9 in. (20 cm) or more away from person’s body (excluding extremities: hands, wrists, feet and ankles).

Cet équipement est conforme aux limites d’exposition aux rayonnements énoncées pour un environnement non contrôlé et respecte les règles les radioélectriques (RF) de la FCC lignes directrices d’exposition dans le Sup- plément C à OET65 et d’exposition aux fréquences radioélectriques (RF) CNR-102 de l’IC. Cet équipement émet une énergie RF très faible qui est considérée conforme sans évaluation de l’exposition maximale autorisée.

Cependant, cet équipement doit être installé et utilisé en gardant une dis- tance de 7.9 in. (20 cm) ou plus entre le dispositif rayonnant et le corps (à l’exception des extrémités: mains, poignets, pieds et chevilles).

For vehicles sold in the USA
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.


For vehicles sold in Canada
Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equiv- alent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.

Conformément à la réglementation d’Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une antenne d’un type et d’un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l’émetteur par Industrie Canada. Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l’intention des autres util- isateurs, il faut choisir le type d’antenne et son gain de sorte que la puis- sance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l’intensité nécessaire à l’établissement d’une communication satisfaisante.

- Caution while driving
Do not use the cellular phone or connect the Bluetooth® system.


- When leaving the vehicle
Do not leave your cellular phone in the vehicle. The inside of the vehicle may become hot, causing damage to the phone.
