PAIRING AND CONNECTING USING THE PHONE

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before operating the phone features. See PHONE SAFETY.

NOTES

The process of pairing and connecting with the vehicle, from the phone, varies depending on the type of phone used.

NOTES

The process of pairing and connecting the phone is the same for both the touchscreen and the lower touchscreen.

Pairing and connecting a phone:

  1. Enable the vehicle's electrical system and make sure that the touchscreen is active.

  2. When pairing a device for the first time, select Tap to connect phone from the HOME screen. Select Pair new device. The vehicle's Bluetooth® wireless technology device is now discoverable. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

    NOTES

    When a phone is paired to the vehicle, Tap to connect phone becomes the name of the user's phone. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

  3. Using the phone, search for Bluetooth devices. On some phones, this is referred to as a new paired device. See the phone's operating instructions for further information. The vehicle's discoverable Bluetooth name is the same as the vehicle's name.

  4. When the vehicle's name is discovered, follow the on-screen instructions. Select Yes, when prompted, to confirm the pairing. Alternatively, some older phones request a PIN to be entered. Either enter the PIN 1234, or select Yes, to confirm that the PIN displayed on the phone matches the vehicle's PIN.

  5. If there is a prompt for a phonebook or contacts download, accept it. See CONTACTS.

    NOTES

    When prompted, select the Remember this setting option once the Phonebook or Contacts information has been downloaded.

  6. Once the phone is paired and connected to the system, select the return icon or the PHONE screen. See TOUCHSCREEN GLOBAL ICONS.

    NOTES

    Some phones require the Bluetooth device pairing to be set as authorized or trusted, in order to automatically connect. Refer to the phone's operating instructions for further information.
