Sockets for auxiliary devices in the storage compartment between the front seats

An auxiliary device, such as an iPod or MP3 player can be connected to the audio system via one of the sockets in the center console storage compartment. A device connected to the USB socket can be operated using the vehicle's infotainment system controls.

An iPod􀂟 or an MP3 player with rechargeable batteries will also be charged if the device is connected to the USB socket (if the vehicle's ignition is on or if the engine is running).

To connect a device:

1. Press MEDIA several times to come to the desired source (iPod, USB or AUX).

Release the button and wait for several seconds or press OK/MENU.

> For example, if a USB device has been selected, the text Connect USB will be displayed.

2. Connect the device to one of the sockets in the center console storage compartment (see the illustration).

The text Reading USB will be displayed while the system reads the device's folders. This may take a short time, depending on the folder structure and the number of files.

When this information has been loaded, track information will be displayed and a track can be selected.

Tracks can be selected in two ways:

  • Turn TUNE and press OK/MENU
  • Use the right or left arrow keys (on the center console control panel or on the steering wheel keypad) on the center console control panel or on the steering wheel keypad

NOTE NOTE

  • The system supports a number of iPod􀂟 models produced in 2005 or later.
  • In order to help avoid damage to the USB socket, it will be switched off if there is a short circuit or if the connected device uses too much current (which can happen if the device does not comply with the USB standard). The USB socket will reactivate the next time the ignition is switched on if the problem no longer exists. If the problem persists, contact a trained and authorized Volvo service technician.

MEDIA menu selections can be made from the center console or the steering wheel keypad. See page 244 for more information about the infotainment menu system.
