  • Mute: You can mute your voice while on a call with the hands-free system by pressing the leftmost preset button.

  • Enter Digits: You can enter digits with the hands-free system (for automated menus, for instance) by pressing the preset buttons and using the tuner knob to choose the number you want.

  • Call Volume: You can adjust the call volume by using the radio’s volume knob.

  • Ringtone Volume: You can adjust the ringtone volume by turning the volume knob while the call is coming in (before answering it).
