These lights show you the AutoPilot’s charging status:
- Red: AutoPilot is correctly plugged in and ready to charge.
- Amber: AutoPilot is charging your iPod.
- Green: Your iPod is fully charged.
The AutoPilot requires a direct connection to your stereo, either via your stereo’s auxiliary jack or a cassette adapter. If you have the auxiliary cable connected and you still can’t hear your music on your stereo, you may need to hit a button on your car stereo to switch to Auxiliary Mode. Check your car’s manual for more info on this setting.
From our testing, this product appears to be partially compatible with the iPhone 3G. When you attach the product, your iPhone 3G will present a message notifying you that the attached device is not made to work with the iPhone, and asking you if you’d like to switch your iPhone into Airplane Mode. You can clear this screen by pressing Yes or No. Once that screen is cleared, all functions of this product should work normally.
Please note that this product has not been approved by Apple for use with the iPhone, and any future firmware updates may affect its functionality.
Due to the way the electronics in certain cars are wired, you may need a Ground Loop Isolator. These are available at many electronics stores like RadioShack, or you can purchase our Noise-reducing Audio Cable from our website.
The iPad requires a 2.1 amp power supply to charge normally. Anything less than that will still charge the device, but so slowly as to be impractical. You can check out our full line of iPad-compatible chargers here.
