Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Auxiliary Devices

Using the Auxiliary Input Jack

Radios with an auxiliary input jack on the lower right side of the faceplate can connect to an external audio device such as an iPod®, MP3 player, or CD player, for use as another source for audio listening.

This input jack is not an audio output; do not plug headphones into the front auxiliary input jack.

To use a portable audio player, connect a 3.5mm (1/8 in) cable to the radio's front auxiliary input jack.

When a device is connected, press the radio CD/AUX button to begin playing audio from the device over the vehicle speakers.

For optimal sound quality, increase the portable audio device's volume to the loudest level.

It is always best to power the portable audio device through its own battery while playing.

(Power/Volume): Turn clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the volume of the portable player. Additional volume adjustments might have to be made from the portable device if the volume is not loud or soft enough.

BAND: Press to listen to the radio when a portable audio device is playing. The portable audio device continues playing.

CD/AUX (CD/Auxiliary): Press to play a CD when a portable audio device is playing. Press again and the system begins playing audio from the connected portable audio player. If a portable audio player is not connected, No Input Device Found displays.
