Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting
Making and taking phone calls has never been more convenient. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call.

If you receive a second call, you can have the first caller wait momentarily by pressing “2” for call waiting mode. Once both calls are finished, the mute for music is deactivated. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music enjoyable and convenient. You can even use the CDE-143BT’s preset buttons to quickly jump through your phone book, making navigation through large phone books much faster.
Hands-Free Calling Sound Customization
To bring sound balance to your hands-free experience, you can adjust the CDE-143BT’s mic gain, phone output and ringtone volume. If that’s not enough, there are five sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.

This unit will find music files while ignoring other file types on the USB device.
Note: MP3 device or cell phone cannot be independently controlled through the head unit.
Select from 10 different EQ modes to get the best sound from all your sources (Flat/Pops/Rock/News/Jazz/Elec Dance/Hip Hop/Easy Lis/Country/Classical). If the Equalizer presets aren’t enough for your listening taste, there’s a 3-Band Parametric Equalizer you can adjust and save as a user preset for a better sound response curve.
