Frequently Asked Questions
1.Can I use the Cassette Adapter Bluetooth while charging?
The 3rd gen and multifunctional iTape Pro can, that's our product's biggest advantage, just make sure the charge slot form the top compartment of the cassette adapter bluetooth and that it is dangling outside of your tape.

2.Can I use the Cassette Adapter Bluetooth to answer phone calls?
Yes! Built in microphone that allows for hands-free cellphone operation while driving.
3.When I talk to someone on the phone they complain that I sound muffled. Can I fix this?
Make sure that you have removed the microphone from the top compartment of the Cassette Adapter Bluetooth and that outside of your tape deck for 3rd generation Cassette Adapter.
4.The Cassette Adapter Bluetooth is in my tape deck but will not pair to my device. What could cause that?
The Cassette Adapter Bluetooth will power off after 5 minutes once Bluetooth is disconnected. To re-establish connection, use the power switch on the side of the Cassette Adapter Bluetooth to cycle the power OFF then ON. The Cassette Adapter Bluetooth will also turn back on and enter pairing mode if it is removed and re-inserted into your tape deck.
5.How long is the battery life? Are there any steps I can take to maximize battery life?
The built-in rechargeable battery should last for up to 6 hours.
To even further extend battery life, keep this in mind. The Cassette can be powered in 2 ways: (1) Power Switch turned ON or (2) Power Switch Off, and Cassette Adapter’s metal tape head pressed in by a cassette deck’s Play mechanism. Since the Cassette Adapter can be powered by pressing in the tape head, use the following steps to further extend battery life.
Turn Cassette Adapter switch to Off at all times.
Insert Cassette Adapter into cassette deck.
Engage Play on cassette deck. Note: Some decks automatically engage Play upon insertion.
The Cassette Adapter should now be powered on and ready for Bluetooth Connecting (because it tape head is pressed in).
Connect your Bluetooth device and play music.
When finished or not using, ensure the Cassette Adapter’s tape head is not engaged (pressed in) by either pressing Stop on your cassette deck, or by ejecting the Cassette Adapter entirely.
To reconnect, repeat Steps 2-5.
6.If the cassette deck powers on the Cassette Adapter, is the separate power switch not needed at all?
The Cassette Adapter will turn itself on automatically when your cassette player’s tape head engages. While this ’auto-on’ feature means many customers will never need to use the external ’Power Switch’ on the Cassette Adapter, some customers like the idea of being able to fully pair their Bluetooth device to the Cassette Adapter before inserting it into a cassette deck.
