Searching for tracks

  1. Keep pressing the button until the "iPod" audio source is highlighted in the bottom line.
  2. Select "Find music" in iPod mode.

If you only want to play certain tracks on your iPod, you can compile these tracks using specific filters. These filters can be used either individually or in succession for the search:

– Artists
Displays a list of all available artists. If you select an artist from the list, the number of tracks available for the subsequent
search is updated.

– Albums
Displays a list of the available albums. If you have already selected an artist, only albums by this artist will be available for
the subsequent search.
If you select an album from the list, the number of tracks available for the subsequent search is updated.

– Track
Displays a list of all tracks stored on the iPod. If you have already set a filter (e.g. "Artists"), the list of tracks will have
been automatically updated and only tracks by this artist will be available.

– Music genres
The tracks stored on the iPod are generally assigned to a music genre (provided the "Genre" ID3 tag has been assigned).
These music genres can also be used as filters for a search.

Once you select a filter, higher-level filters are no longer available. After you select an artist, for example, the "Music genres" filter can no longer be selected.
Selecting "Start playback" terminates the search and plays the tracks in accordance with your previous selection.
Below is an example of how to perform a search for the tracks on a specific album:

  1. Select "Artists".
    A list of all the artists whose tracks are stored on the iPod is opened.
  2. Select the desired artist in the list.
  3. Select "Albums".
    A list of all the albums by the selected artist stored on the iPod is opened.
  4. Select the desired album in the list.
    The number of tracks on this album is then shown in brackets on the "Track" button.
  5. Select "Start playback".
    The tracks on the selected album are played one after the other.

The sorting grade of the lists is predetermined by the iPod.

Playlists

Selecting this list entry allows you to play lists of tracks you have stored on your iPod.

  1. Keep pressing the button until the "iPod" audio source is highlighted in the bottom line.
  2. Select "Playlists".
    The menu is opened.
  3. Select the desired playlist.
    The tracks in the list are played one after the other. After the last track is played, the playlist is automatically repeated.
