Pairing a Bluetooth® Device

When connecting a Bluetooth® device for the first time, you must first pair the device with the unit. For most devices, pairing only needs to be done once.


1. Make sure the BT (Bluetooth®) function is turned to “BT CONNEC” in the radio sub-menu.

  • To access the sub-menu, press and hold the right front knob for three seconds, then release.
  • Repeatedly press and release the right front knob to scroll through the available menu options until reaching “BT OFF” or “BT DISCON”.
  • Turn the right front knob clockwise to change the function to “BT CONNEC” to turn the Bluetooth® function on.

2. Ensure Bluetooth® is enabled on the device you are connecting to the unit.
3. Search for a new Bluetooth® device from the device you are connecting to the radio (this may take up to 30 seconds).
4. Select “RETROSOUND” from the Bluetooth® device list.
5. Some devices may require you to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN). If so prompted, enter “0000.” 
6. If the pairing was successful, “PAIRING OK” will be displayed on the LCD of the radio. The paired device will then connect to the unit automatically. 
7. Verify Volume is turned up on both the Radio and Bluetooth Device.
