You can get going right away with vokul if you have an iPhone, iPad, or a 4th Generation iPod touch. vokul will use the built-in speaker and microphone on your device.

If you're using a 3rd Generation iPod touch, you'll need a headphone adapter with a built-in microphone. The earbuds with microphone provided by Apple® work well.

If you're planning on using vokul while driving, you can connect your device to your vehicle's audio system. The information below will help you to get hooked up.

With an iPhone, iPad, or a 4th Generation iPod touch, you can...

  • Connect a cable from the headphone jack on your device to the AUX jack in your vehicle.
  • Connect using the dock-port that's built into your vehicle.
  • Connect using a dock-port accessory (e.g. FM transmitter).

*Note: Some options may not be available in certain vehicles.

For best results, we suggest placing your iPhone, iPad, or 4th Generation iPod touch in your car as shown below...

With a 3rd Generation iPod touch, you can...
