Using the Tablet Device with the Cradle

Using a designated Sony cradle (SGPDS1, sold separately) for your tablet device lets you charge your tablet device easily or hold it at an easy-to-read angle [Details].
You can select an app to start when your tablet device is set in a cradle.

Setting your tablet device in a cradle

  1. Slide the foot of the cradle to its upper position. That allows you to plug in or unplug the AC adapter.

  1. Plug the AC adapter in to the power cord connector at the bottom of a cradle.

  1. Plug the AC adapter in to the AC outlet (wall socket).

  1. Align the charge connector of your tablet device with that inside the upper slot of the cradle.

  1. Place the tablet device in the upper slot of the cradle.

  1. Make sure the charge indicator is lit.

  • When you hold or unplug the AC adapter, do not touch its terminal area.

  • Pulling the cable of the AC adapter forcedly when unplugging it from the cradle may break the AC adapter or cradle. So, be sure to hold the foot of the cradle.

  • When using the cradle foot at its lower position, run the AC adapter cord through the cutout of the cradle foot to prevent the cradle from falling over.

  • When placing your tablet device in the cradle while the strap attached, make sure the strap does not get caught between the tablet device and the cradle.

  • When you set your tablet device while in use in the cradle, or when you turn on your tablet device in the cradle, you will be prompted to select which app you want to start next time you use the cradle. If you check [None] and [Use by default for this action], you can continue using the app in use, without the app selection screen being displayed for the future.

  • To change the app to start when you set your tablet device in a cradle, tap [ Apps & Widgets] - [ Settings] - [Cradle].
