wiring or fixing the product or its accessories.
Installing the product on the air bag cover or in a
location where it interferes with airbag operation is
prohibited.
Check for piping, gasoline tank, electric wiring, and
other items before installing the product.

Keep the volume level low enough to be aware of road and
traffic conditions while driving.
This unit is designed for use exclusively in automobiles.
Do not operate the unit for a prolonged period with
the engine turned off.
Operating the audio system for a long period of time with the
engine turned off will drain the battery.
Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight or
excessive heat.
Otherwise these will raise the interior temperature of the
unit, and it may lead to smoke, fire, or other damage to the
unit.
Do not use the product where it is exposed to water,
moisture, or dust.
Exposure of the unit to water, moisture, or dust may lead to

damage your speakers and your hearing. Direct connection
of the speaker/headphone output of an external device
without any attenuator may distort sound or damage the
connected external device.
Observe the following cautions when
installing.
Refer wiring and installation to qualified service personnel.
Installation of this unit requires special skills and experience.
For maximum safety, have it installed by your dealer.
Panasonic is not liable for any problems resulting from your

moving parts such as seat rails. Do not scratch, pull, bend
or twist the leads. Do not run them near heat sources or
place heavy objects on them. If leads must be run over sharp
metal edges, protect the leads by winding them with vinyl
tape or similar protection.
Use the designated parts and tools for installation.
Use the supplied or designated parts and appropriate tools to
install the product. The use of parts other than those supplied
or designated may result in internal damage to the unit. Faulty

What is MP3/WMA/AAC?
MP3* (MPEG Audio Layer-3) and WMA (Windows MediaTM
Audio) are the compression formats of digital audio.
The former is developed by MPEG (Motion Picture
Experts Group), and the latter is developed by Microsoft
Corporation. Using these compression formats, you
can record the contents of about 10 music CDs on a
single CD media (This figures refer to data recorded on
a 650 MB CD-R or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps
and a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz).
*MPEG Layer-3 audio coding technology licensed from
Fraunhofer IIS and Thomson.
AAC is an abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding”.
It has been defined as a standard for audio compression
technology using MPEG 2 and MPEG 4.
Note: MP3/WMA/AAC encoding and writing software is
not supplied with this unit.
Points to remember when making
MP3/WMA/AAC files
Common
• High bit rate and high sampling frequency are
recommended for high quality sounds.
• Selecting Variable Bit Rate (VBR) is not recommended
because playing time is not displayed properly and
sound may be skipped.
• Selecting Variable Bit Rate (VBR) is not recommended
because Re-master function may have little effect in
some cases.
• The playback sound quality differs depending on
the encoding circumstances. For details, refer to
the instructions of your own encoding software and
writing software.
MP3
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps or
more” and “fixed”.
WMA
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to “64 kbps or
more” and “fixed”.
• Do not set the copy protect attribute on the WMA file
to enable this unit to play back.
AAC
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps or
more” and “fixed”.
• The formats and extensions for AAC data vary
according to the encoder software used.
• AAC files which can be played on this unit have the
“.m4a” extension and were encoded with Apple
iTunes®
version 6.
• The file extension for files encoded with the iTunes
Apple Lossless Encoder is “.m4a”, but such files
cannot be played on this player.
• Files under copyright protection cannot be played.
